It is Friday and trades deadline has passed, so we have a bit less to worry about with players being ruled out due to trade. A few teams that peak my interest with pace up spots and closer spreads. The Cavaliers get the biggest pace bump on the night at +6.8 and have a few players that I am interested in. Colin Sexton & Larry Nance. The Nuggets get the next highest bump in pace and that is a +5.8 increase. Another pace up spot is the Heat and they get a +5.1 bump. The Cavs and Heat are both in good spots and provide some solid value tonight,
**Heat & Cavs get a nice bump in pace and play against sub par teams. Both teams provide some solid value tonight.
*Few areas to look for for tonight
-Wolves(Rose, Teague & Bayeless are all listed as questionable)If all 3 sit the Isaiah Canaan would see an increase in minutes. If any of these 3 play they become a solid option against a Pelicans team that runs fast and does not play much defense. Also, if Rose & Teague sit out then KAT & Wiggins become elite plays.
-Suns(Booker)If Booker sits out then Josh Jackson and DeAndre Ayton become solid plays as they both pick up some of his usage. They also both played solid minutes last game in a blowout.
Kris Middleton has been ruled out and Bledsoe picks up some additional usage with a bump of +6%. Also, he has played well over the past 4 games posting 40 FPs or more. Nice matchup vs the Mavericks tonight.
Dennis Smith Jr.
In his 2nd game as a Knick DSJ played 40 minutes and posted 39 FPs vs the Pistons. He gets the same ma
Satoransky has filled in well for Wall. He is an above average rebounder and solid passes. Posted his first triple/double earlier this year. Love this spot for him tonight vs the Cavaliers.
Sexton went off last game vs the Celtics and I was on him once I saw that Hiod was gone. Increase usage, cheap price and excellent matchup makes him a very play.
Johnson was traded to the Suns and the coach already inserted him into the starting lineup. Cheap price and potentially solid minutes puts him in play. If Booker does sit then Johnson gets a bump.
Warriors Play the Suns tonight in what should be an easy game go them. Thompson is a cheaper option to get some exposure to the Warriors. Playing well over the last 2 games and can see him hitting value in 28-30 minutes.
Pace up spot against the Pelicans tonight. Rose is already ruled out and Teague is listed as questionable. In a good spot now and even better if Teague site out. He could shoot well over 20 times tonight.
This kid just plays better and better each game. Hard to fade him right now. Questionable as of now, so keep and eye on status.
No more Bullock or Stanley Johnson. Kennard will see a bump in minutes. Nice matchup tonight vs the Knicks.
Starting again tonight and still a decent price.
Heat get a nice bump in pace and excellent matchup. They also traded away Tyler Johnson so Wade should see some time at Pg.
Giannis in play if you can afford him tonight. Solid matchup and bump in usage with Middleton out. Don’t see anyone hat can stop him on the Mavericks.
Pace up spot, decent price and should play some pint forward. Excellent matchup
Tim Hardaway Jr.
Harrison Barnes is gone opening up more minutes for THJ!
Risky Play due to his possible minutes limitation, but in a very good spot. Don’t think many will go to Davis making him a solid GPP play.
Excellent spot for Markkanen who has been playing well as of late. Portis and Parker are gone. Love playing Bigs vs Nets.
Crush spot for Griffin and don’t see anyone in Knicks that can slow him down.
Playing very well as of late.
Portis only in play if he starts tonight.
Pkaying more minutes as of late and in a crush spot.
In play if he starts. Centers vs Nets.
