Best of the Best

James Harden (FanDuel Price: $11,800) - There has been no one hotter than the Houston Rockets' superstar. In the last week, the Beard is averaging 37.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 10.3 assists, and 2.3 steals for 65.6 FanDuel points per game. Harden's last four outings have all produced at least 50 fantasy points -- with a pair of 76.9-point and 80.7-point explosions leading the way. With Chris Paul nearing a return but still out on Sunday, Harden and his league-leading 54.1% assist percentage are lined up for another monster game against the fast-paced Indiana Pacers. Indy plays at the 10th-fastest pace in the league while allowing 108.4 points per game. The contest with the Rockets has by far the highest over/under of the day, with Houston owning an implied total of 113.0 points.
