Feel like using some Raptors in your lineup during tonight's 13-game slate? We've got you covered:

Raptors FanDuel Plays for Tonight vs. the Hawks

Top play: DeMar DeRozan ($7,700) is having a solid season in terms of FanDuel scoring, averaging 31.1 fantasy points (FP) per game. Last time he played the Hawks on opening night, DeRozan posted 39.7 FP on 15 points, 11 boards, 3 assists, 6 steals, and 5 turnovers. The 4 for 16 shooting was a bit painful, but shooting efficiency doesn't affect a player's FanDuel scoring, so game on if he can get anywhere close to those numbers again tonight. His price has dropped this week, despite putting up 29 or more FP in four of his last five games. He's affordable with oodles of upside.

Mid-priced option: Jonas Valanciunas ($6,000) has averaged 29.3 FP per game over his last five, including three double-doubles in points and rebounds. Against the Hawks on opening night, JV put up 17 points, 8 rebounds, a block, and only one turnover in just a little over 20 minutes, resulting in 27.6 FP. The big guy's minutes are trending up and he should make for a solid, affordable center play tonight.

Bargain play: Reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Lou Williams ($4,700), is still very reasonably priced on FanDuel, despite averaging 28.3 FP over his last five, including a 48.3-point explosion versus Cleveland on Saturday. He's absolutely a player you want to ride in daily fantasy sports until his price goes up or he cools off - especially against the team that traded him away for John Salmons' contract.

There you have it.

Remember: sign up here for a 100 percent deposit bonus, join tonight's tournament here and use the promo code SBNRAPTORS for a chance at the $100,000 in prizes, and hashtag along on Twitter using #FanDuelSBN.
