Point Guards

It sorta feels like I’m chasing points but Los Angeles Lakers PG D’Angelo Russell ($6100) has a nice matchup with a Boston Celtics defense allowing point guards to average 42 FanDuel points a game. Russell has had back to back 40 plus FanDuel games and is averaging 14.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and just over one steal a night.

Shooting Guards

Milwaukee Bucks SG Giannis Antetokounmpo ($10,900) is incredibly pricey but he has a great opportunity tonight against a Denver Nuggets defense allowing shooting guards to average 40.44 FanDuel points a game.  This season Giannis is averaging 22 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and a block and a steal a game in 23 road games.
