We were able to get back to our winning ways for the third time in four days with our Feb 7th lineup. Despite losing Anthony Davis part of the way into the evening, our team scored 259.7 points which was more than enough to place in the upper half of our 50-50s for a 100% win rate. Jason Smith had a big night with 33.1 points, Chandler Parsons lit up Portland for 42.8 points and The Alphabet put together another big game with 37.7 points.
Tonight we are going to focus on building a great NBA FanDuel lineup to help compete and win in Feb 8th LATE contests.

Moxyball FanDuel NBA Plays for Feb 8th Contests
We always like to do our analysis before ultimately developing the lineup we feel is strongest as a group. Usually they will find their way into our final roster, but sometimes they won’t fit for one reason or another. If we mention a player below and he doesn’t end up on our squad, that doesn’t mean you should shy away from running him!
With that said, here are 4 players we like the looks of heading into tonight’s contests.
Tobias Harris, $6,100
Harris faces Chicago who played last night, and gets them at home which is even better. At the price, he’s looking like an absolute must-start today, coming off 2 consecutive 44+ FDP performances. He’s clearly finding his groove after coming back from an injury and should be one of the top ROIs today.
Markieff Morris, $6,400
Another forward that checks in as an attractive play today, Morris is projected by our friends at FantasyCruncher to bring 32.2 points to the table. I like Morris in 50-50 contests while his price is under $6,500, thanks to his consistency at bringing at least 25+ points to his owners, which he’s done in 6 of his last 10 outings. He’s taking plenty of shots these days, with at least 15 FGA in his last 6 games as well. Expect a nice outing from Morris as the Suns take on the Kings tonight.
Goran Dragic, $6,100
There aren’t many point guards I like the value of today, but Dragic is one that intrigues me. He’s been all over the map with his production lately, but I see him bringing between 25-30 points to the table tonight. He has one 35 FDP game and another 24 FDP game under his belt against the Kings this season. There’s also a decent chance Darren Collison misses tonight’s game, which would help Dragic face Ramon Sessions and the 27th ranked PG defense on the heels of a back to back. He’s a solid start in 50-50s tonight.
Trevor Ariza, $5,300
In case you haven’t noticed, Ariza is on quite a nice little tear right now with a 33.3 FDP average over his last 3 games. The minutes are there (36 avg over the last 3 contests), and the opponent (Portland) is on the heels of a back to back where they gave up over 40 FDP to Chandler Parsons. It will be hard to pass over Ariza at small forward in today’s action.
