Feb 10th was a great night for our lineup, winning 100% of our 50-50s. Our roster finished with a total of 280.9 points, led by Eric Bledsoe (45.8), Tony Allen (29), Gerald Henderson (30.3), Josh Smith (34.7) and DeMarcus Cousins (36.6). Even though we didn’t start James Harden and his 70+ FDP – we had a well-rounded squad that was able to keep pace.
Tonight we are going to focus on building a great NBA FanDuel lineup to help compete and win in Feb 11th contests (all games). Let’s keep the good times rolling, folks!

Moxyball FanDuel NBA Plays for Feb 11th Contests
We always like to do our analysis before ultimately developing the lineup we feel is strongest as a group. Usually they will find their way into our final roster, but sometimes they won’t fit for one reason or another. If we mention a player below and he doesn’t end up on our squad, that doesn’t mean you should shy away from running him!
With that said, here are 4 players we like the looks of heading into tonight’s contests.
James Johnson, $4,000
Johnson is not typically a 30+ minute per game guy, but he’s definitely productive when on the floor. In his last 2 games he’s producing at a fairly elite 1.087 FDP per minute rate. With Paul Pierce, John Wall and company in town – the Raptors will need Johnson’s defensive energy on the floor. The Raps are also showing more confidence in his ability to score on the post, which is helping elevate his value. We can count on a 5.0+ ROI from Johnson today.
Tobias Harris, $6,200
Assuming Harris suits up tonight, he’ll be a very strong 50-50 play at the SF position. With his price sitting nicely in the low $6,000s – it’s hard to pass him up. He’s producing at a 6.6 ROI level right now (last 3 games) which puts him 3rd overall in this category amongst players who are active tonight. It’s worth noting that New York is the league’s best defense against opposing small forwards on the season, but I can easily see Harris hitting the 25+ point mark despite this point. I wouldn’t blame you for looking at another option, but keep in mind he’s a high floor guy which is something 50-50 entrants should be focusing on.
With Tobias Harris already ruled out, we’re adding another player that we like for tonight’s games.
Marcus Smart, $4,800
Smart has been one of the best PG2 options on FanDuel over the last couple weeks. He’s developed into a player that has a decent floor (15-20) and a ceiling of 30-35 in strong matchups. With 3 days off between the Celtics’ last game against Milwaukee, he enters tonight nice and rested. The Hawks are a tough opponent for the Celtics, but their defense against PGs ranks 19th in the league. Smart will be counted on for another 35+ minutes and should have no trouble getting to the 22-25 point mark at minimum running the Boston offense. His projection on Rotowire has him coming in at 24.8 points, which is worth a 5.17 ROI.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, $6,800
As far as shooting guards go, The Alphabet is one of the best in the business these days and a top value on FanDuel. With 34.9 or more points in 5 straight games, it’s a wonder why his price hasn’t hit the $7,000 mark quite yet… though it’s probably just a matter of one more game before this happens. He plays big minutes and is an across-the-board producer, making him an attractive option in DFS even if he doesn’t manage to have a big game in the points department. Facing Sacramento tonight on the heels of a back-to-back, look for another 35+ FDP outing from the Bucks’ young cornerstone guard.
Spencer Hawes, $3,800
Hawes is someone I really like the value of tonight in a matchup against Houston. Owners may be scared off by Hawes’ weak output in his last game against Dallas, but if you look a bit harder at the boxscore you can see that the Clippers went with a small lineup most of the way through the game after Tyson Chandler went down to injury in the first quarter. Houston plays a different style of game, with quite a few SF/PF on their roster playing considerable minutes. This is a great night to run Hawes, who is available to us at a fantastic price of $3,800 and in a situation where a good chunk of FanDuel managers will stay away based on his last game’s production. He should get his minutes back up to the 25-30 level and can bring the same number of points to the table for an awesome 6.0+ ROI.
