Welcome to the daily fantasy basketball Playbook for Tuesday, featuring DFS picks and advice from Sporting News partners FantasyAlarm.com. Anthony Davis, fresh off his 59-point, 20-rebound performance, will be a popular play tonight, but there are a lot of other good value options.

There are plenty of high-quality guard and wing options, with James Harden, Gordon Hayward, C.J. McCollum, and Rajon Rondo, among others, all in action during tonight's five-game slate. Spending up at the PF and C spots makes sense with so many guards and small forwards readily available.
