3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 10/17/17

Kevin Durant has elite upside in what should be a great fantasy game between the Warriors and Rockets. What other high-priced players should you target on opening night?

NBA is the most consistent sport for daily fantasy purposes. A top slugger in baseball will have his fair share of 0-for-4 days and an elite fantasy football player is at risk of having games where his team's offense as a whole is shut down. A high-priced NBA stud is generally going to get his though. With so many possessions in a game meaning so many opportunities to rack up fantasy points, top fantasy basketball options will be posting high scores night in and night out.

While this consistency puts us in a good position to identify the top plays every night, it also means that you can't afford to miss when you're paying up for someone. Even with strong value plays in your lineup, paying up and getting a dud is likely going to leave your lineup drawing pretty close to dead.

Let's get right into it and look at which top players should be the focal points of your lineups tonight.
