The NBA season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.

And be sure to checkout our nightly against the spread (ATS) picks as well.

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Friday, 2/12, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA

Target De'Aaron Fox ($8,900), PG, Sacramento Kings: De'Aaron Fox is on an incredible roll as of late, and he'll get a chance to continue that streak against the Orlando Magic on Friday. Fox is averaging 31.3 points, 8.5 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game over his last six contests. The Sacramento Kings PG put up 36 and 34 points, respectively, in his last two games, which were both against top-10 scoring defenses (Los Angeles Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers). Facing a Magic team that's in the bottom half of the league in opponent PPG, he should have little trouble racking up points and assists on Friday.

Russell Westbrook Fantasy

Target Russell Westbrook ($8,700), PG Washington Wizards: It's been a transition year for Russell Westbrook as he gets used to his new team. As Bradley Beal's No. 2, Westbrook is still stuffing the stat sheet, putting up 19.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game. With Beal and his league-leading 32.8 PPG out for Friday's contest against the New York Knicks, Westbrook is primed for an explosion as the team's main source of offense.

Lou Wiliams Fantasy

Target Lou Williams ($6,500), SG, Los Angeles Clippers: We recommended you target Lou Williams in his last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and he delivered with a season-high 42 FanDuel fantasy points thanks to his best scoring night (27 points) during the 2020-21 campaign so far. It's no surprise that Williams' most productive stretch of the season has come with Paul George out, and PG13 is out again on Friday. That clears the way for the Clippers' sixth man to light up a Chicago Bulls team allowing the fourth-most PPG to opponents (115.8) this season.

Kristaps Porzingis Fantasy

Avoid Kristaps Porzingis ($8,200), PF, Dallas Mavericks: The Kristaps Porzingis Experience is sometimes frustrating to be on. You never know when the 7-foot-3 big man will struggle to score or forget to rebound, like he did in last game (15 points, 4 rebounds). Porzingis was effectively benched against the Atlanta Hawks, playing in a season-low 19 minutes, and his team got the win without him. Coming off of that poor performance, he'll face the New Orleans Pelicans, who are allowing the second-fewest rebounds to opponents this season (49.0). Going against Steven Adams and Zion Williamson, expect Porzingis to struggle against a physically dominant frontcourt.

Jerami Grant Fantasy

Avoid Jerami Grant ($8,200), SF, Detroit Pistons: Jerami Grant is coming off of one of his worst nights of the season so far, going just 4-17 from the field against the Indiana Pacers. While it could've just been an off night, he'll have to rebound on the second game of a back-to-back against the Boston Celtics, who've stifled opponents this year, giving up just 109.9 PPG (seventh fewest in the NBA). It's hard to see Grant having enough gas after playing 35 minutes last night to overcome this strong Celtics' defense.
