NBA DFS Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings – 2/7/18

Welcome to another edition of ResearchFantasy’s NBA Breakdown. These picks are what I consider to be the best play of the day, relative to their price. One of the most important things we must consider in daily fantasy is how many points a player gets per dollar. It helps us identify value plays to pair with studs that we know will produce in order to maximize our potential points in lineups. I also try to identify plays that can be used in either cash games or tournaments. Typically, when I build my cash games, I am looking for players that have the best floor combined with good upside. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please let us know!

Pricing is FanDuel/DraftKings


Jrue Holiday (7600/7500) – Holiday finally exceeded value in his last game against the Jazz, and I think he could do it again tonight. He should be the number two on this team, and I think he has a big time chance of going off for another big game tonight against the Pacers.

Ricky Rubio (7600/6700) – Rubio has been on fire and the price is still laughably low on DraftKings. The opposition is irrelevant. I get that Memphis is a slower paced team, but Rubio is likely to still get close to 40 fantasy points. He will be mega-chalk tonight, but you should eat it.

Andrew Harrison (5100/5000) – Again, this is a situation of a player who is priced too cheap. He should be more near $6k. The bottom will fall out sooner or later, but until it does, we should be using Harrison in our cash game lineups each and every night.


Anthony Davis (11900/11600) – Tonight, I am focusing on two guys, but it is primarily a play for DraftKings since you cannot on FanDuel. The first is Davis. We know Indy is trash against big men and this is a big man at home where scorekeepers show him more love. He has not had a monster yet without Cousins, but it is coming, and this could be it.

Andre Drummond (11000/9800) – Drummond is an easier pill to swallow on DraftKings, but with his block and steal upside, he could end up being a good play on FanDuel as well. He has been a stud even with Blake on the team, and he should be someone you work to get into your lineups tonight.

Caris LeVert (4000/4400) – LeVert is another guy who could end up seeing some ownership. He has not been as good with DAngelo Russell on the second unit, but still has the talent to get us to the promised land. He is too cheap to not consider in tournaments tonight.
