Daily Fantasy Basketball Plays For 1-14-14

It is a great night to play some daily fantasy basketball even though there are only 4 NBA games. Here are some players you should have in your lineups tonight.

Lance Stephenson- He is my top play for the night as the Sacramento Kings are one of the worst defensive team’s vs shooting guards. Either Marcus Thornton or Ben McLemore will be guarding Sir Lance-a lot which means he should produce in every category and get close to a triple-double tonight.

Mike Conley – He has been playing the best ball of his career recently by averaging 27.3 points,8.3 assist, 2.3 steals, 2 3PM in his last 3 games. Tonight there are some solid PG options but he is one of the best for price/production except on DraftKings, where he is the most expensive PG.

Anderson Varejao- Sideshow Bob should destroy the Lakers frontcourt tonight while not destroying your lineup as he is still considerably cheap. He is the top center to play tonight.

Not a lot of cheap play options for tonight but here a few I would target if I was going that route.

Jodie Meeks SG, LAL- He is my favorite mid-range play tonight as Meeks has been getting plenty of PT for Lakers. He is the main scoring threat for them and should easily get 25+FPTS tonight with the chance to reach 30-35 FPTs.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF, CHA- should play heavy minutes tonight and produce all around numbers. Will likely get 25ish FPTs tonight which is solid for his value.

Jason Thompson- yes, the Pacers are a great defensive team, but Thompson has been great recently and should play 30-35 minutes. He is a risky play, but could be worth his miniscule price.

Amare Stoudemire PF/C- Amare has been playing better and better each game. Even with Tyson Chandler back, Amare should still get plenty of PT.

Courtney Lee SG/SF- Lee started last game for the Grizz and will likely start tonight if tonight Tony Allen doesn’t play. He provides something the Grizzlies desperately need in outside shooting and some athleticism. He should hit some 3s, get some steals, and score some points.

@MyBadAzz you're right about that, but he averaged almost 10 ppg in '12 during last 7 games. Not a winning strategy taking him in 1st round.

Some Players that averaged more points per game than K. Leonard & J. Noah in' 14: T. Wroten, D.J. Augustin, Bargnani, Stuckey, A. Bradley

@MyBadAzz that was also based on the last 7 games of the season. He killed it the first half of the season.

@MyBadAzz 15 PPR points for a 1st round pick is not going to win leagues. Was too reliant on TD's in '13. less than avg w/o the high TD rate

@Dexters_Library his gingerness is the best part about him. His first half acolytes are unreal, but #FF 'ships aren't own in the first half.
