3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 10/20/17

With an absurd 40.6% usage rate to start the year, Giannis Antetokounmpo offers an elite fantasy ceiling. Which other high-priced NBA players should you build your daily fantasy basketball lineups around on Friday?

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, while 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 providing opportunities to produce, top fantasy basketball options will be posting high scores just about every night.

While this consistency puts us in a good position to identify top plays, it also means 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.
