Another week of NBA daily Fantasy basketball begins today with an exciting 5 game slate to take on. We will be looking at the plays that should give you the best bang for your buck and also the high dollar plays that should not disappoint. Lets start with the studs.

Top plays

At point guard John Wall ($9000 DK / $46 Yahoo) is in an exceptional position to score major points due to the uptempo match up vs the Phoenix Suns and their lack of defense against opposing guards. Despite the high price tag he is definitely in play if you're looking for elite across the board production from your PG. His minutes restriction has also been lifted so feel free to roll him out.

The shooting guard position has a ton of value tonight but if you're gonna pay up then it should definitely be for James Harden. He has been on a tear and is a man on a mission as of late. His price is severely inflated ($11,900 DK / $56 Yahoo) but his performance backs up the dollar amount. He gets the Detroit Pistons tonight and should have a field day even with Patrick Beverly back in the lineup. Fade the "Beard" at your own risk.

Kawhi Leonard vs the Dallas Mavericks is a game I would target if you're looking to pay up at small forward. His price has been on the rise recently ($8700 DK / $46 Yahoo) but so has his play. He gets a juicy match up against one of the leagues worst teams. He should absolutely dominate tonight.

Blake Griffin is your safest pick to get fantasy points tonight from your power forward ($8,500 DK / $41 Yahoo). He has been rolling in his last 3 averaging nearly 50 fantasy points per game. He gets an uptempo match up vs the Toronto Raptors which should allow his hot streak to continue, especially because the game should remain close.

The center position can always be tricky but Hassan Whiteside is the closest to a sure thing as it gets and he gets the lowly Sixers tonight. He's been an absolute beast over the last four games averaging 55 DK points a game. He's gonna cost you ($9300 DK / $43 Yahoo) but not having him in your lineups could be a nightmare because he has 70 fantasy point potential due to his high rebound and block rates.

Value plays

In order to fit some of these high salaried players on your roster comfortably you will definitely need some value plays. Possibly one of the best on the board is SG Johnathan Gibson of the Dallas Mavericks ($3,700 DK / $10 Yahoo). He is minimum priced and went off for 40+DK points last game. He has been getting lots of playing time due to the injuries of Devin Harris, JJ Barea, and Deron Williams. If they're all still ruled out he shapes up to be an exceptional play

Jared Dudley ($4,000 DK / $10 Yahoo) and James Johnson ($4,500 DK / $10 Yahoo) make for great plays at forward based on their recent production and minutes. James Johnson's value will take a slight hit if Justice Winslow is able to suit up tonight.

If you're looking for a bargain a center then Clint Capela ($5,900 DK / $18 Yahoo) is a good candidate. The Houston Rockets center has been quietly averaging 35 fantasy points per game over his last 5. His salary hasn't quite caught up to his production so now maybe the time to get him at low cost.

Good luck on tonight's slate everyone and hopefully some of these recommendations can help you take down a tournament or two.
