Daily Fantasy Basketball Plays For 1-28-14

It is another glorious day for some Daily Fantasy Basketball so I am here to help you out. These are the players I will be using in my lineups tonight and so should you. Enjoy and good luck.

Cheap Plays

Austin Rivers- If you are looking for a very cheap option than Rivers is your guy. He is averaging 10.5 points, 2.5 assist, & 1.8 steals in 22 minutes in the last 4 games. He won’t do anything special, but should exceed his value.

0435.jpgGerald Wallace- It has taken a while for me to come to terms that Wallace actually has some fantasy value. He has played 40+ minutes in two of the last three games while averaging 11.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.3 assist, and 2.6 steals during those three games. He is only $3,800 on DraftKings, but is also cheap on most sites. He could have another solid game vs the Knicks tonight so make sure to get him in your lineup.

Value plays

1818.jpgMarc Gasol- Hasn’t had too many big games since he came back from injury which is why his price tag is so low (only $12,587 on DS). However, Marc should have a great game tonight as the Grizzlies battle the Blazers so he will play heavy minutes and be heavily involved in the offense. This is going to be a breakout game for Gasol so don’t be scared to start him.

0412.jpgTyson Chandler- This depends on what site you play on as he is cheap on DKs and Fanduel, but expensive on DS. Chandler should dominate a weak Boston frontcourt tonight. He has a double-double in three of the last 5 games ( both games he didn’t record a double-double were blowouts) and averaged 11.6 points, 14 rebounds, & 1.3 blocks in those three games.

Arron Afflalo – This is one of my man crushes for multiple reasons:  He won’t kill your budget, has scored 23+ points in two straight games, Detroit can’t guard anyone, his name is fun to say, and will always play big minutes. He will be in most of lineups tonight.

Andrew Bogut- He faltered last time I talked about him, so hopefully that doesn’t happen again. Bogut had 15 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assist, 4 blocks, & 2 steals in only 25 minutes last time he faced Washington which was good enough for 44 FPTs.

Expensive plays

2771.jpgJohn Wall- He played poorly last game, but that had more to do with the fact it was their fourth game in six nights. Wall should feast tonight vs Golden State as Steph Curry doesn’t play much defense. Of course, I would rather start Curry than Wall, but Wall is cheaper and easier to fit in lineups than Curry is. He should easily reach 45 FPTs with the potential for much more.

3407.jpgAnthony Davis- Mind boggling look at this dude’s stats: He has 4 blocks or more in four straight games, has had 2 or more steals in four straight games, and has averaged 19.8 points & 10.8 rebounds in the last four games. Also, Cleveland has the worst Defensive Efficiency vs PF’s in the league. Everything about A.D. tonight screams must play.

Caution:

Detroit big men- They face Orlando tonight who are dreadful vs big men, but I am scared about Drummond though. He got benched last game and didn’t even seem like he was breaking a sweat when he was on the court. Greg Monroe , Josh Smith, and Andre Drummond could all have monster games, but be warned as they could also take a huge dump on your lineup.

0935.jpgAnderson Varejao- I try to star any center playing vs the Pelicans because they literally have D-leaguers for centers. Varejao is questionable tonight with a knee contusion, but I would use him if he starts. If he doesn’t, then Tyler Zeller makes for a great start tonight. He did produce 8 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals two games ago when he got 22 minutes of playing time vs Milwaukee.

@T_Loc11 @SeanLloyd93 chalmers..stauskas hasn't beenpicked but I hate him. Like J.Nurkic forDen

Is this Heaven? No, its Indiana. Man, could've sworn it was heaven! Back at IU for the first time in over 5 years. Shits about to get crazy

@RSandersRX Fair enough. I can talk about H2H cats, but its usually just negative stuff. H2H points is where its at.

@RSandersRX true. I'm one of the few that despises H2H cat, so I don't talk about it much when talking about a players fantasy value.

@RSandersRX some solid points there. hes much better in a points league, but hard to stomach that FG% in a roto league.
