After a huge slate of games last night, we look ahead to a relatively calmer night of basketball with just three games being played. We take a quick look at the games followed by a look at where we see some value and big nights when it comes to daily fantasy and FanDuel for January 8.

FanDuel Value By Position
For each position, we will highlight four types of players: Point Producer (top-end player expected to put up the most points at their position), Value Play (player who is a good mix of point production and salary), Punt Play (who is a low cost player under $5000 that could return 4-5x), and Avoid (these are players we are avoiding as they are too expensive for their production level).
Point Producer: Kyle Lowry
Value Play: Damian Lillard
Punt Play: Mario Chalmers
Avoid: Patrick Beverley and Jose Calderon
Point Producer: James Harden
Value Play: Wesley Matthews
Punt Play: Lou Williams ($5200)
Avoid: James Harden (too expensive for the production)
Point Producer: none
Value Play: Nicolas Batum and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Punt Play: Terrence Ross
Point Producer: LaMarcus Aldridge (after being inactive for two games Aldridge has averaged 38 min per game over the last three and put 124 FanDuel points).
Punt Play: Patrick Patterson
Avoid: Donatas Motiejunas and Cody Zeller
Point Producer: Dwight Howard (faces off against the lowly Knicks who have been giving up the most points to centers in the last 10 games - avg. of 57.1 total points but has played three straight games of big minutes and could be due for a rest especially with a blowout risk against the Knicks).
Value Play: Cole Adritch
