Let's take a look at who you should target on today's main slate.
Best of the Best
Anthony Davis (FanDuel Price: $11,000) - The New Orleans Pelicans have been on a roll, winning their last three games. As always, Davis has played a crucial role, averaging 29.3 points, 11.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.0 blocks per game in that span. He has two games of at least 50 FanDuel points during the three-game streak, and he was on track for a third before sitting out the fourth quarter in Friday's blowout of the Phoenix Suns, finishing with 38.8 FD points in just 25 minutes. Saturday will be a tad tougher for the Pels as they face the Golden State Warriors. The matchup is expected to be the highest-scoring game of the night, and Davis is in a spot to run wild against a Dubs squad allowing the eighth-most FD points to power forwards. When the two teams played earlier this season, the Brow went off for 68.5 FD points.
