3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 12/30/20


#Basketball is the most consistent sport for daily fantasy purposes.

A top slugger in baseball will have his fair share of 0-for-4 days, and an elite fantasy football player is at risk of having games where his team’s offense as a whole is shut down. A high-salaried NBA stud is generally going to get his, though. #With so many possessions in a game providing opportunities to produce, top fantasy basketball options will be posting high scores just about every night.

#While this consistency puts us in a good position to identify top plays, it also means you can’t afford to miss when you’re paying a heavy salary to roster someone. #Even with strong value plays in your lineup, getting a dud from a stud is likely going to leave your lineup lacking.

#Let’s get right into it and look at which top players should be the focal points of your lineups today.

#Giannis #Antetokounmpo, PF, #Milwaukee #Bucks

#FanDuel #Salary: $11,000

#Giannis #Antetokounmpo has an $11,000 salary in a game against the #Miami #Heat, which we haven’t seen since…yesterday. #Antetokounmpo’s #Milwaukee #Bucks blew out the #Heat last night 144-97 behind a record-breaking 29 three-point makes. I’d be willing to bet they don’t have a 139.3 offensive rating again tonight.

#Antetokounmpo is now averaging 1.47 #FanDuel points per minute after putting up a league-leading 1.86 over the 2019-20 season. The only thing that has really limited him has been minutes. #In two games with at least 30 minutes, he has put up 52.6 and 56.1 #FanDuel points. #In two with 26 or fewer minutes, it’s been 34.6 and 32.2.

The primary reason for this article is identifying the can’t-miss studs of the night. #Antetokounmpo still should be seen as such: the spread is only five points, and there’s going to be some recency bias baked in after the blowout on the front-end of this back-to-back.

#Kevin #Durant, SF, #Brooklyn #Nets

#FanDuel #Salary: $9,500

#Kevin #Durant is yet to have an eruption game with the #Brooklyn #Nets but has had at least 38.6 #FanDuel points in all three of his starts. #He had a rest day on #Monday and should be ready to pile up points in a game with a 239.5-point total against the #Atlanta #Hawks, who are a positive matchup across the board.

#Durant has 22, 29, and 29 points in his three games thus far, and points always bring a floor of fantasy points. #He’s used 27.8% of the #Nets’ possessions when on the court this year and has a 62.8% effective field goal percentage. #We’ve seen him clear 33 minutes in each of the past two games, as well.

numberFire projects #Durant to get to 33.6 minutes tonight, which would lead to roughly 17 field goal attempts at his current rate. #He’s got the floor locked up, and his scoring gives him an unquestioned ceiling, as well.

#Paul #George, SG, #Los #Angeles #Clippers

#FanDuel #Salary: $7,600

#Paul #George played 28 minutes last night and returned 34.7 #FanDuel points, his third game in four with at least that many. #His only dud game was an incredibly one-sided loss to the #Dallas #Mavericks, so the floor has been there for #George, and his salary barely puts him in stud territory.

#Kawhi #Leonard didn’t play last night and is still day-to-day. #George, since the start of 2019-20, has a 33.5% usage rate with #Leonard off the floor. #That’s an elite number at a reasonable salary.

The #Los #Angeles #Clippers rank a modest sixth of 12 teams in implied team total tonight but are within 2.75 points of sitting second on the slate. #Portland is pretty generous to the wing positions, and #George ranks as our best value among all players tonight.
