FanDuel daily picks: Fantasy basketball lineup – January 8, 2018

ATLANTA, GA - NOVEMBER 30: LeBron James /
2 of 12

High Salary PG

Chris Paul, HOU at CHI ($10,200): Paul has posted two straight games of 44.9 fantasy points. He’s not exploding for monster games like James Harden did when Paul was out of the lineup, but in the Rockets system, he’s guaranteed to get plenty of points and assists. The Bulls are 25th against the position in their last 15 games. I still like Paul because there’s always a chance he goes off for a monster game based on the system. ****

Steph Curry, GS vs DEN ($9,800): Curry is listed as probable, which is a good sign for his status. He’ll most likely play, just the Warriors like to keep everyone guessing with their injury report. If he plays and Kevin Durant is out again, Curry should be in for another 45+ fantasy point night. Even if Durant is able to suit up, Curry is good to hit value. He’s hit value in 81 percent of games this year and has yet to post a dud game. He’s the most reliable DFS player this season and always has a chance to go off with his shooting. *****

Kyle Lowry, TOR at BKN ($7,900): Lowry has been up-and-down in his last five games. He was slightly up against the Bucks, posting 33.2 fantasy points in 27 minutes. The Nets are 29th against the position in their last 15 games. Lowry had 51 fantasy points against them on Dec. 15. His assist numbers have been down in recent contests, but he’s still a solid bet to put up good numbers in all categories, especially against the Nets. *****
