What’s up, GF2 fans! I’m back with my free NBA DFS FanDuel advice for the 1/26/16 slate of games. Thursday’s main slate will consist of a small four-game schedule. I still see plenty of solid plays to choose from, especially on the value side. In this article, I’m going to give you guys a couple of nice plays to roll with for each position, so let’s get started!

Point Guard

Eric Bledsoe @ DEN ($9,700)

This game is easily my favorite one to attack for Thursday night’s main slate of games! So far this year, Bledsoe is averaging 20.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 33.1 minutes per game for the Suns. This season, he’s managed to average a cool 39.6 FPPG for his loyal owners. This year, the Nuggets have given up an average of 47.7 FD points per outing to opposing point guards.

George Hill, vs. LAL ($6,000)

The Jazz players will all receive a nice bump in pace for this slate, leading to some good stat lines. So far this season, the Lakers have allowed an average of 45.7 FD points per game to opposing point guards. This year, Hill has averaged 18.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 31.3 minutes per game for Utah. This season, he’s managed to average a smooth 31.3 FPPG for his owners.

Shooting Guard

Devin Booker, @ DEN ($7,200)

Like I said above, this game will be a stellar one for DFS purposes on Thursday evening. So far this year, Booker has managed to average a solid 30.7 FPPG for his DFS owners. This season, he’s averaging 20.6 points, 2.8 rebounds 3.1 assists in 34.3 minutes per game for Phoenix. This season, the Nuggets have given up a league-worst 40.8 FD points per contest to opposing shooting guards.

Seth Curry, @ OKC ($4,100)

With Wesley Matthews out of the next two games, Curry should get a nice bump in minutes. So far this season, he’s averaging 10.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 26.4 minutes per game for the Mavericks. This year, Curry has managed to average a moderate 20.1 FPPG for his loyal owners. This season, the Thunder have allowed an average of 33.0 FD points per contest to opposing shooting guards.

Small Forward

Gordon Hayward, vs. LAL ($8,000)

The Lakers are awful on defense, so Hayward should be in store for a monster night for Utah. So far this year, Los Angeles has given up an average of 39.4 FD points per game to opposing small forwards. This season, Hayward has managed to average an explosive 36.7 FPPG for his fantasy owners. This year, he’s averaging 21.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 34.5 minutes per game for the Jazz.

Danilo Gallinari, vs. PHO ($5,800)

You’ll for sure want to grab some Denver players in what should be a high-scoring affair for this slate. Over their last five games, the Suns have allowed an average of 42.9 FD points per outing to opposing small forwards. So far this season, Gallinari has averaged 16.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 34.1 minutes per game for the Nuggets. This year, he’s managed to average a nice 28.5 FPPG for his owners.

Power Forward

Nikola Jokic, vs. PHO ($10,400)

Jokic will have a great shot at dominating the paint versus Phoenix for this slate! So far this year, the Suns have allowed an average of 42.3 FD points per game to opposing power forwards. This season, Jokic has managed to average a consistent 34.4 FPPG for his loyal owners. This year, he’s averaging 15.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 25.5 minutes per game for the Nuggets.

Gorgui Dieng, vs. IND ($5,600)

The Pacers have a rather lackluster group of post defenders, so the Minnesota big men should feast on Thursday. So far this season, Indiana has given up an average of 43.0 FD points per contest to opposing power forwards. This year, Dieng has managed to average a solid 26.9 FPPG for his loyal owners. This season, he’s averaging 10.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 32.1 minutes per game for the Wolves.

Center

Karl-Anthony Towns, vs. IND ($10,600)

Like Dieng, Towns will easily be a great play for this slate of games! So far this year, he’s managed to average a massive 46.4 FPPG for his loyal DFS owners. This season, Towns has averaged 22.4 points, 11.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 blocks in 36.1 minutes per game for the Wolves. This year, the Pacers have allowed an average of 47.3 FD points per game to opposing centers.

Rudy Gobert, vs. LAL ($8,300)

I see Gobert dominating the glass on Thursday night against an awful Lakers group of post players. Over their last five games, Los Angeles has given up an average of 61.3 FD points per contest to opposing centers. So far this season, Gobert has averaged 12.8 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 33.3 minutes per game for the Jazz. This year, he has managed to average a smooth 36.4 FPPG for his owners.

Well, those are my NBA DFS value plays for the 1/26/16 slate of games. Hopefully, with my advice, you guys will prosper on Thursday night. Thanks for reading and good luck, everyone!
