3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 10/31/18
Kevin Durant, SF, Golden State Warriors
Unsurprisingly, we've seen the Golden State Warriors play at a top-10 pace this season, and they lead the league in offensive rating. Wednesday night will see them take on a New Orleans Pelicans team that ranks top-five in pace while boasting a top-three defensive rating. This game doesn't have an over/under yet, but it has all the makings of a shootout, and we can expect a high-scoring one.
When these two met in the playoffs last year, the over/under got as high as 232.5, which would be within 1.0 of the highest on today's slate.
Limited minutes in blowouts have limited Kevin Durant's fantasy floor, as he has played 28.1 minutes or fewer in two games this season, failing to rack up even 36.0 FanDuel points in either of those games. His other six games have seen him top 53 FanDuel points four times though, averaging 53.8 per game and never failing to crack 45.0 when playing at least 29 minutes.
