What’s up Mafia, we have a small 3 game slate on both FanDuel and DraftKings. There isn’t much as far as top dollar players. Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Nikola Jokic are over 10K on both sites (FD/DK) and you can surely fit two of these players.
What’s up Mafia, we have a small 3 game slate on both FanDuel and DraftKings. There isn’t much as far as top dollar players. Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Nikola Jokic are over 10K on both sites (FD/DK) and you can surely fit two of these players. I’d imagine that most will so I’ll try and find optimal plays and pivots to help fill out the rest of the rosters.
- Orlando at New York (216)
- Boston at Toronto (226)
- Oklahoma City at Denver (237)
- Denver plus 3.5
– Fred Van Vleet is OUT –> Jeremy Lin, Norman Powell, and OG Anunoby
– Isaiah Briscoe is OUT –> DJ Augustin, Jerian Grant, and Terrance Ross
– DeAndre Jordan is Questionable –> Mitchell Robinson, Luke Kornet, and Noah Vonleh
– Trey Lyles is OUT –> Paul Millsap
- Kyrie Irving (BOS)
Irving has been carrying this Celtic team in the two games since the ASB with a 30% usage and an average of 52 fantasy points. This season Kyrie has feasted against the Raptors. In all 3 games, he has topped over 40 fantasy points and he had a season high of 70.9 fantasy points.
- Jamal Murray (DEN)
I expect Murray to be highly owned based on the matchup and pace. He’s price is very low and the upside is there for 30 plus minutes. He should be highly owned which limits leverage in GPPs.
Value: Isaiah Thomas (DEN), Jerian Grant (ORL).
- Dennis Schroder (OKC)
This is really an ugly slate for SGs. So, I am going to focus on the highest total game for an option. Even at 25 minutes, Schroder has the GPP upside to high 6x plus. He’s too cheap on DraftKings.
- Terrance Ross (ORL)
The injury to Isaiah Briscoe bumped Ross up to 30 minutes last game against his former team. Ross is the ideal GPP play against this Knicks defense. I am locking him in at the SG slot tonight.
Value: Damyean Dotson (NYK), Allonzo Trier (NYK)
- Kawhi Leonard (TOR)
Expected back after the day of rest, Kawhi is a great GPP pivot off PG13. This season, when he plays, he has a 30% usage and is scoring 1.32 FPPM. Against Boston this year, 3 games, he’s averaging over real PPG.
- Kevin Knox (NYK)
Without DJ, Kevin Knox scored over 37 fantasy points last game. The rookie has seen a WIDE range of minutes over the last month but when he’s getting 30 plus, he’s hitting 6x plus. The small slate will add to ownership but he’s cheap.
Value: Lance Thomas (NYK) IF STARTING
- Jayson Tatum (BOS)
Tatum’s is another Celtic that shows up against Toronto. This season, Tatum has hit 6x in all 3 games this season. Over the last 2 weeks, he has a 1.01 FPPM, which is 3rd overall on the Celtics roster.
- Aaron Gordon (ORL)
Always a player that will be boom or bust, Gordon has the matchup against one of the worst defense against power forwards. His cheaper price will help you pay up some high dollar players. He’s a great pivot off Millsap, who is priced closely on DraftKings and higher owned.
- Value: Khem Birch (ORL).
- Nikola Vucevic (ORL)
Over the LAST 2 weeks, ONLY Russell Westbrook has a higher FP/MIN than Vucevic (1.82) The Knicks dreadful defense will only increase that amount tonight. Deandre Jordan is Doubtful which only helps the big man against a team that ranks 27th in Opp. Points in the Paint. He’s averaging nearly 50 fantasy ppg against the Knicks this season.
- Value: Mitchell Robinson (NYK), Marc Gasol (TOR).
