NBA Fanduel Friday Players to Start - January 25th Edition

With the NFL Fanduel season over it is now time to shift gears to the NBA. Here is a look at the best players, match-ups and sleepers for each position for Friday night's games. Good Luck everyone!

PG - Kyrie Irvin  vs.  Milwaukee Bucks  $9,300
Irvin is coming off a huge game Tuesday night in which he put up 40 points on a decent Boston defense. Friday night Irvin will be going against Brandon Jennings and a Milwaukee defense that gives up 97.7 points per game. A good match-up for the young PG. Expect another strong performance.
PG - Tyreke Evans  vs.  Oklahoma City Thunder $6,600
Evans is finally starting to get healthy and back up around the 30 minutes per game fantasy owners are use to seeing from with. His counterpart on OKC Russel Westbrook left his last game early with an apparent ankle injury. He has never missed a game in his pro career and will likely give it a go even hobbled a little bit. This could serve as a nice little match-up for Evans with Westbrook off a step.
SG - Klay Thompson  vs.  Chicago Bulls  $5,900
After getting off to a slow start this season Thompson has scored 50 points over his last two games including 29 Saturday against the Hornets. Over that stretch he has hit nine 3-pointers in 18 attempts. With Golden State likely to be playing from behind they will look to the 3-point shot of Thompson to keep them in the game.
SG - Carlos Delfino  vs.  New Orleans Hornets  $4,400
Delfino is coming off a monster game on Monday night where he made 8-of-10 shots, including six 3-pointers for 22 points and added four rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 30 minutes. Bit of a risk-reward play has he comes off the bench most night but this could be an excellent case of playing the hot hand.
SF - Kevin Garnett  vs.  Atlanta Hawks  $6,400
Garnett has scored 16 points and 5+ rebounds in 3 consecutive games translating to between 30-35 fantasy points per game in that stretch. Boston has been in a bit of a tail spin having lost four in a row. They will need Garnett to step up big to end that skid against the Hawks.
SF - Carl Landry vs.  Chicago Bulls  $4,600
Landry is averaging 35-30 minutes a game over the last 10 games thanks to injuries to players like David Lee. He has surpassed the 20 fantasy point mark in 6 of those 10 including 4 of his last 5. At just $4,600 he is a steal while he continues to see the minutes.
PF - Kevin Durant  vs.  Sacramento Kings  $9,900
Durant and Lebron continue to duke it out for the title of best Fanduel play each week. Durant is averaging 51.5 fantasy points per game over the past 4 games. He is a must start for Friday night.
PF - Chandler Parsons  vs.  New Orleans Hornets  $5,700
Parsons has been a little hit and miss lately with a hand full of 30+ fantasy point nights mixed with a few games in the teens. He is capable of being a difference maker. We are going to roll the dice with him here and hope its a 30+ night.
C - Chris Bosh  vs.  Detroit Pistons  $6,900
Bosh has been pretty good lately averaging 28.8 fantasy points per game. In the month of January he has been consistently 20+ with a couple of 40+ nights mixed in. You know what you are going to get from Bosh which always makes him a good play.

Good luck everyone!
