NBA DFS Sunday, January 6th
Almost half of the NBA season is behind us, and Sunday, January 6th has some interesting matchups for DFS players. Here are my picks for the night:
 
Brandom Ingram – Small Forward, Los Angeles Lakers
 
Lebron is still injured, and Kyle Kuzma will probably be out as well when the Lakers take their winter coats into cold Minnesota. Timberwolves are still hoping to make the playoffs, and games against injury-depleted teams are a must-win for them. However, don’t count the Lakers out just yet. They have a solid group of young players who are going to try to prove their worth without Lebron, and I expect this to be a close game.
 
Brandon Ingram is the best player on the Lakers in the absence of Kuzma and James, so I expect him to have the ball in his hands a lot and to have above average performance. Out of the other Lakers who might play well I believe that Lonzo Ball and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are going to see an increase in production as well.
 
 
Russell Westbrook – Point Guard, Oklahoma City Thunder
 
Russell Westbrook can also be called Mr. Triple Double. Or the second version of one, since that is Oscar Robertson’s original nickname. Russ is averaging a triple-double for a third straight year, and OKC has been on a tear behind him and Paul George. I expect both of them to play another great game against the ailing Wizards. Even though his shot is not falling at a high clip, that triple-double average should be enough for fantasy owners.
 
However, if you want to go cheaper at point guard, there are a couple of guards who have been playing pretty well lately. Kris Dunn from Chicago had a career-high 17 assists in the last game against Indiana and has been consistent as a primary ball handler since he came back from injury.
 
Jeff Teague also came back from injury just this week and proved that he is fully healthy with 23 points and ten assists in the last game. You can pick him while he is still relatively cheap.
 
 
Zach Lavine – Shooting Guard, Chicago Bulls
 
As I mentioned earlier, Kris Dunn has become a primary ball handler for the Bulls, and with the return of Dunn and Lauri Markannen; Zach Lavine does not have the same responsibility as he did at the beginning of the season when he was averaging over 25 points per game. However, he scored over 30 against Indiana, and at 6700$ and 6800$ at DK and FD, he is pretty cheap for the kind of production he is capable of performing.
 
Devin Booker would be another shooting guard I would pick, a little bit pricier but very dependable in DFS. He is the absolute leader of the Phoenix Suns and one of the best young players in the league, and should have a great game against Charlotte. Also, KCP from the Lakers, as I mentioned before will also get a lot of opportunities, and is the cheapest of the three.
 
 
Domantas Sabonis – Power Forward, Indiana Pacers
 
Domantas Sabonis could very well win the Most Improved Player award. Only in his third season, he is playing like a seasoned veteran and has excellent numbers across the board. 15-10 double-double with a couple of assists is what you can expect on a nightly basis from the young Lithuanian star.
 
For a second option at power forward I would go with Tobias Harris from the Clippers. He has become a bit cheaper, and his production dropped from the beginning of the season. Still, I count on him to play well at home against the struggling Orlando Magic.
 
 
Karl-Anthony Towns – Center, Minnesota Timberwolves
 
KAT is averaging close to 60 FPTS in the last five games. Timberwolves are his franchise now, and he has to prove he is the franchise player everybody expected him to be. I would save up at other positions and pick him at center, even though the Lakers have a 3-center rotation to put up against him, he should be the best player on the court and dominate.
 
And if you want to pick somebody else and save up some money, Hassan Whiteside is a cheaper center (especially on FanDuel) who will provide value in terms of rebounds and blocks, and should go over 30 FPTS against the weak Atlanta Hawks team.
