There are only three games on the NBA slate today after a big 11-game slate last night. The Hawks and Nuggets are on the second night of a back-to-back, but I'm not letting that scare me off of starting their players.
Here is an early look at some of my favorite potential plays on FanDuel:
C Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets ($10,700)
Nuggets' star center Nikola Jokic may not be the highest-priced player on the FanDuel slate, but he is my top play of the night. I know Jokic is on the second night of a back-to-back after a terrible game last night, but I love him tonight in a tough spot. The Joker will get his mojo back tonight despite Dallas guarding against the center position well on the young season.
PG Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks ($9,400)
"Ice" Trae Young is second in the NBA in scoring at 32 points per game. Talk about a hot start! He is on the second night of a home/road back-to-back. Young leads the Hawks into Miami to take on the Heat. The Hawks vs. Heat game has the highest implied total on the night. I think the Hawks have a shot to pull off the upset. That all starts with Young.
PF Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks (9,000)
Porzingis does not have the best matchup. Thankfully, he does have a fair price on FanDuel. The Mavericks travel to Denver to take on a tough Nuggets team in the altitude. Look for the Mavs to lean on Kristaps this evening.
LAL PF/C Anthony Davis ($12,300)
Davis is the highest-priced player on the FanDuel slate tonight. The Brow left the Lakers' previous game early with a shoulder injury, but the reports say he is all good to play. Davis is averaging 25 points and 10 rebounds per game with his new team, although I'd like to see him get more minutes.

Best of the rest
ATL SF De'Andre Hunter ($4,700)
Final Four hero De'Andre Hunter has looked good early in this NBA career. He played 30 minutes in the Hawks loss to the Heat last night. Hunter is an excellent cheap option tonight that can give you 20-plus FanDuel points.
PF Brandon Clarke Memphis Grizzlies ($5,500)
First-year player Brandon Clarke does not have a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers; however, the rookie does have the ability to stuff the stat sheet at a decent price.
LAL SG Danny Green ($5,500)
Lakers have a good chance to run it up vs. the Grizzlies, a team now wisely rebuilding around the electric Jae Crowder. Look for Green to put up a solid number against the 25th-ranked team vs. shooting guards.
