Eight games are available for FanDuel players to pick from in “main” games Saturday, and the pickings are particularly slim at the power forward position. Three of the five highest-priced power forwards have been declared out for their respective games, and to take it even further seven of the top 11 are out. With that being the case FanDuel players are faced with a choice: commit to Draymond Green ($8,000)
to lead the way at the position, or go with two low-priced options in hopes that those players produce more than their listed FanDuel salary would lead one to expect. When it comes to the latter possibility, players such as Memphis’ JaMychal Green
($4,700), Charlotte’s Frank Kaminsky
($4,300) and Atlanta’s Mike Muscala
($3,900) will be available with all three in spots where the available personnel will impact their opportunities.
Green, who’s started all season for David Fizdale, has played 32 minutes or more in three of the last five games with reserve Zach Randolph away from the team on bereavement leave
. Green played 32 minutes or more just four times in Memphis’ first 15 games. Kaminsky’s moved into the starting lineup as a result of Marvin Williams’ knee injury
, and Muscala has an opportunity for more minutes with Paul Millsap sidelined with a hip injury
. Will any of those three players pan out? That’s tough to predict, but at the very least they’ll have the opportunity to do so. But given the available options, there aren’t many other places to turn.
Here are our FanDuel picks for Saturday’s games, working within the rules of a nine-player roster and a salary cap of $60,000. (Getty)
