Welcome to Five Guys No Burgers and Fries: Daily Fantasy Basketball!
In keeping with the tradition of Thursday night debacles, last night proved to be an exercise in futility for many daily fantasy basketball players.

Make sure to check out the FanThrowdown DFR GPP tonight for only $6!

Today’s Five Guys
Top Daily Fantasy Basketball Pick: Goran Dragic is riding a wave of resurgence that has seen him play like we expected from the start, after solidifying himself as a top 5 point guard option during the second half of last season. Tonight the Suns revamped offense takes on Boston, whose point guard defense issues have been well documented since Rajon Rondo went down. (DraftKings $6,000, FanDuel $6,000, FanThrowdown $6,500)
Carlos Delfino is the next man up for a Houston team that is without two of its front court regulars, after a series of trade deadline moves in the 11th hour. The replacement assets are likely to miss tonight’s contest, and Delfino looks to log huge minutes once again. Last game saw him play 42 and finish with 9 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals. This is sheer volume play at it’s finest. (Draftkings $3,000, FanDuel $3,900, FanThrowdown $5,300)
Paul George has no competition tonight against the Pistons with Tayshaun Prince now out of town. He’s been a daily fantasy basketball monster at home this year, and has scored at least 23 points and snagged at least 8 rebounds in 3 of his last 4 games. (DraftKings $8,500, FanDuel $9,300, FanThrowdown $8,700)
Emeka Okafor is in the midst of a career revival in the unlikeliest of places, Washington. His physical presence matches up well with the finesse style of Kosta Koufos, and Denver has been consistently torched by opposing big men throughout the season. He posted 10 points, 7 boards, 2 blocks, and 3 steals in a meeting with the Nuggets earlier this year, and that was in 21 minutes. He’s averaging between 25-30 over his past 10 games, which makes for an excellent daily fantasy basketball proposition. (DraftKings $5,100, FanDuel $5,900, FanThrowdown $6,700)
Jared Dudley has been flying under the radar for some time now, posting solid value while staying underpriced in most formats. He lit up Boston in an earlier meeting for 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. With Dragic elevating the entire team’s game, he should be in line for more of the same. He remains dirt cheap on most sites and is a much better daily fantasy basketball play than the Orlando cheapies. (DraftKings $3,700, FanDuel $4,300, FanThrowdown $5,800)
