NBA Daily Fantasy 1/19: Top Plays at Each Position for MLK Day Night Contests
A happy Martin Luther King Day to everyone and hope you all of you are enjoying today’s NBA action. With so much going on and time short, we are just going to give our favorite plays for the night games and simple explanations. The night contests include Bulls at Cavaliers, Raptors at Bucks, Kings at Trail Blazers and Lakers at Suns.

PG – Derrick Rose $7,400 – All you have to do is look at Rose’s minutes and production in the last week. Plus, the Cavs stink defensively and Irving is always a popular target in daily fantasy.
SG – Eric Bledsoe $8,200 – The Lakers are easily the worst in FPTS allowed to PG. Bledsoe always has tremendous upside and the Suns are projected to score 112 points.
SF – LeBron James $10,900 – According to LeBron after the Cavs’ win against the Clippers, this is the best he’s felt all season. While he might just be saying that, his stats prove it and he got a couple weeks off to rehab. The Bulls are average against SFs and are still shorthanded without Mike Dunleavy. Doug McDermott will be active, but it’s unclear if he’ll play. Even if he does, he’s no match for LeBron. Plus, LeBron is simply on a roll.
PF – Taj Gibson $5,300 – Gibson has been a bit disappointing recently when being in the starting five, but I wouldn’t give up on him. The Cavs’ frontcourt defense is awful and Gibson should get plenty of rebounding opportunities in an up-tempo game.
C – Alex Len $5,300 – We are targeting the Lakers once again. Len is playing around 30 minutes and snagging double-digit rebounds. Considering the matchup, 30 FPTS for Len is certainly realistic.View all posts by Nick Juskewycz
