3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 1/28/19
Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving has been on a roll lately, with at least 56 FanDuel points in four of his last five games, topping 60 twice and averaging 57.8 per game in that stretch.
He's been highly efficient in that time, but the big numbers have also come with some serious volume, averaging 36.9 minutes and 21.0 field goal attempts per game -- putting up at least 19 shots and at least 5 three-point attempts in each of the five games.
The Nets rank a middling 17th in defensive rating on the year, and while they're holding opponents to a slightly below-average effective field goal percentage, they also rank bottom five in the NBA in steals and allow their opponents to get up the league's sixth-most field goal attempts per 100 possessions.
Irving produced efficiently in limited minutes against Brooklyn in their first meeting this season (37.4 FanDuel points in only 27.8 minutes), so the potential that he continues to play big minutes is particularly appealing here.
