Last night marked the first non-NBA stop of the Daily Fantasy Radio Circuit, with NHL action in full swing at DraftKings! Tonight’s huge daily fantasy basketball slate will be hosted by FanThrowdown, as the Circuit makes its way to the site’s $5.50 GPP. If you haven’t signed up yet what are you waiting for?
The evening in review was marked by a monster triple double from Joakim Noah, who posted 11 blocks in what was certainly one of the year’s top performances from a big man. We saw Chris Paul get back on track, Kobe continue being Kobe, and Ian Mahinmi step up for everyone who placed their faith in him with Roy Hibbert sidelined. Tonight’s action is significant with its multitude of game time decisions, that are sure to drastically shape the daily fantasy basketball value landscape.

Today’s Top Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks
Top Daily Fantasy Basketball Pick: Derrick Favors has long been a tantalizing daily fantasy basketball option, held in check by the two big contracts ahead of him on the depth chart. The men behind those contracts, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, are both game time decisions after being held out of practice yesterday. Should one or both miss tonight’s tilt, Favors becomes an unbelievable option against a Bobcats front court that has no chance of stopping anyone. He’s priced at $5,500 on FanThrowdown.
Paul Pierce is the kind of player you want to catch on a hot streak, and that would seem to be exactly what we’re in the midst of after two monster outings in his previous two games. Golden State provides little perimeter resistance, and Pierce will get the looks he wants all night long. His price is a bargain on FanThrowdown for $7,900.
Tobias Harris has to be mentioned here again today, as he’s still priced near the bottom of the barrel on every site, and is quickly becoming the only Magic player worthy of trust. The combination of his bench role, and downward spiral of Orlando’s recent play means Harris is one of the few options that actually holds value in the many games where the Magic are blown out. In most cases his value even increases, due to extra 4th quarter court time. Harris is a steal on FanThrowdown at $3,000.
Greg Monroe is a beast these days, routinely posting balanced lines that look more like those of LeBron James than a second year big man. It’s a high compliment to be sure, and Monroe has earned the attention. Tonight the Pistons take on the floundering Hornets, a team that gave up 17 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals to Monroe last time out. His price is situated at $8,100 on FanThrowdown.
Stephen Curry is hard not to take at this point, and Boston has had extreme difficulty defending opposing point guards in recent weeks. Curry’s price has gone up as expected, but he’s still valued below the high end studs. You can find him for $8,800 on FanThrowdown.
