Friday night NBA action always delivers a great schedule for daily fantasy action on FanDuel. The schedule includes 11 games tonight with plenty of options, so make sure you sign up for FanDuel and enhance your viewing pleasure. The Pacers host the Timberwolves on Friday so let's take a look at how the players stack up as fantasy play options.
Monta Ellis hasn't put up eye popping numbers to this point, only once scoring over 20 points, but he gathers enough rebounds, assists and steals to make a 15-point scoring night turn into a valuable fantasy play. George Hill is in that similar zone, with a $6500 salary at point guard.
Minnesota's backcourt has been relying on wily vets, Andre Miller and Kevin Martin off the bench as Ricky Rubio deals with a hamstring issues, but none of those three are defensive stoppers. Rubio was a late scratch last night against Golden State, so he will likely give it a go again in Indy tonight.
Paul George has steadily climbed the ranks among small forwards from undervalued in the low $8000 range to a salary of $9100 for Friday whhich slots him below just LeBron James ($10,200) and Carmelo Anthony ($9400). PG remains a solid play and he'll have an interesting matchup with Andrew Wiggins who has been a handful early this year. This assumes the Wolves will slide Wiggins in front of PG on D.
A couple of other value options from the Indy/Minny matchup is also at small forward with C.J. Miles ($4700) and Nemanja Bielica ($4600). Catching either on the right night will supplement the big money players to put you in the winning zone. Miles looked real good in Boston on Wednesday after working through an ankle injury, so may be worth a look with another day off.
As for the bigs, Jordan Hill is listed as a center and is a viable value play at just $4900. With Myles Turner out for a month, Hill will see more consistent minutes and so far he's put up solid fantasy numbers when playing 25-30 minutes.
