NBA FanDuel Fantasy Basketball Picks Tonight for 2/3/2021
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 Wednesday, 2/3, NBA DFS action.
FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA
Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy
Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,200): Giannis fell totally flat for DFS purposes in his last game, but you can't really put that on him. He played just 25.8 minutes in a 28-point blowout victory, not stepping foot on the court once in the final 15 minutes of the game. His 1.45 FanDuel points per minute in that showing weren't far off his season-average of 1.57. There's still some blowout risk tonight against the Indiana Pacers, but with the Bucks favored by 8, we should be in for a full dose of Giannis.
Kristaps Porzingis Fantasy
Target Kristaps Porzingis, PF, Dallas Mavericks ($7,500): It'd be tough to pay up for both Giannis and Luka Doncic tonight, but pivoting down to a cheaper Mavs star is a strong option. Dallas is a 1.5-point favorite over the Atlanta Hawks in a game with a strong 223.5-point over/under, and the Mavs will also be playing up in pace here. Foul trouble (fourth foul took him off the floor less than two minutes into the second half) limited his minutes two games ago against the Utah Jazz, but that was the only time he's played fewer than 31.8 minutes in his last seven games. For a guy who has averaged 1.27 FanDuel points per minute in Dallas, that playing time makes him a great value while priced at $7,500.
Jae'Sean Tate Fantasy
Target Jae'Sean Tate, SF, Houston Rockets ($3,900): Jae'Sean Tate hasn't been overly consistent, but he's also started seven straight games, averaging 25.9 minutes per game during that stretch. Fantasy efficiency is not the rookie's strong suit, but he's converted the playing time into 20.0 FanDuel points per game over those last seven. For a guy priced down below $4,000, that's really all you need for a solid floor while the high-priced studs like Giannis carry your lineup's upside.
Russell Westbrook Fantasy
Avoid Russell Westbrook, PG, Washington Wizards ($10,000): Limited minutes haven't done much to hold Russell Westbrook's production back recently, but they still mean he's just too risky a play to warrant at $10k price-tag. He went off for 71 FanDuel points two games ago, but beyond that, he has no more than 42.4 in the other five of his last six.
Andre Drummond Fantasy
Avoid Andre Drummond, C, Cleveland Cavaliers ($8,800): Andre Drummond is questionable after missing his last game with a back injury, but even if he suits up he shouldn't be in your FanDuel lineup. The injury could limit his playing time, and while he's shown huge upside this season, he also draws a brutal matchup tonight against a Los Angeles Clippers team that has held opposing centers to bottom-five fantasy production on the year.
