Personally I believe this is the best five game slate of the season (excluding the Christmas Day slate). There are tons of very strong value options as well as some excellent superstars to pay up for.

This is only a first reaction to the players on a given slate. If you would like a FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball lineup, you can purchase one below. Also, our year-long pass is now available for 2018-2019. The year-long pass gives you a lineup a day for each day of the year for each sport and is only $299.99. Also, if you purchase it before 2018 starts you receive a FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball lineup for each remaining day of 2017. More information is below.

Point Guard: $5,500 Ish Smith- Smith is one of the best backup point guards in the entire NBA, but he will now be thrust into a starting role due to Reggie Jackson going down with an injury. While he won’t put the ball in the basket that often, he does bring plenty of value to the table due to his ability to rack up peripheral stats. Smith is fairly expensive when you think about it and I may toy with the idea of fading him due to the massive amount of ownership he should have.

Shooting Guard: $5,600 Marcus Smart- My thinking behind rostering Smart today is as follows: someone will need to try to slow down the best scorer in the NBA. Smart is one of the best perimeter defenders in the entire NBA and he should draw the tough task of defending James Harden. The Boston Celtics will need Smart on the floor as much as possible because of that. He has the potential to win you a tournament tonight if his shots are falling.

Small Forward: $11,900 Giannis Antetokounmpo- While his stats have slightly dropped in the wake of Eric Bledsoe joining the team, this was to be expected. There is no need to panic since Antetokounmpo is still posting MVP caliber numbers. He draws an excellent matchup with the fast paced Minnesota Timberwolves. There isn’t really anyone on the T-Wolves capable of shutting Antetokounmpo down (except maybe Jimmy Butler) and that bodes well for him having a big game. A triple double is never out of the picture for the Greek Freak, but his real value comes in his ability to put the ball in the basket and rack up steals and blocks. He is a viable play in both cash games and tournaments given his high floor and lofty ceiling. Some people may view James Harden as their top option to pay up at but I will be completely fading Harden unless some sort of crazy news breaks.

Power Forward: $5,500 Jayson Tatum- He has been one of the Celtics’ go-to options on offense and that has led to some strong fantasy games. Hopefully this is a sign of bigger things to come, and with Gordon Hayward sidelined, Tatum has the chance to show off some of his immense potential. Make sure to keep tabs on Jaylen Brown’s injury situation  as Brown being able to suit up would likely cause me to go more towards fading Tatum.

Center: $10,000 Karl-Anthony Towns- His Timberwolves have gotten off to a slow start this year, but that is in no part because of him. As he showed last year, he has the potential to put up some master stat lines. He will face the Milwaukee Bucks in what sets up to be a fast paced game. The Trail Blazers should roll with a small ball lineup more often that not tonight given the fact that they lack size up front. Ownership will be fairly on Towns given the plethora of other options available and that only makes him a more enticing play.
