PG Reggie Jackson – 6,900 FD & 6,000 DK
Most people will be loving John Wall tonight for the matchup and the narrative against Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers, and I get it. I do too. I’m just going to be a little more controversial, cause let’s be honest we all know Wall will go off tonight and that’s no fun to write about! But this is a cash game article so for the sake of keeping this about the money I’ll just say, if you have the salary for John Wall, just do it, but if you need a reasonably priced point guard and don’t have 10,000+ salary lying around Reggie Jackson can be the play you’re looking for. Reggie Jackson is matching up against Jeff Teague and a Minnesota Timberwolves team that allows the most points in the league to opposing point guards, allowing an averaging of 66.9 FD points /per game. The Timberwolves have had consistent problems guarding the PG position and tonight they face a red-hot Reggie Jackson in a game that is expected to be close with a relatively high 210 over-under. Despite his wide range of minutes (due to blowout scenarios), Jackson has managed to maintain an average of 34.5 FD points per game. pairing his recent success with his favorable matchup, Reggie Jackson is my favorite play tonight, especially at such reasonable industry prices.
Other Cash PG Option(s): John Wall & Mike James/Darren Collison (safer GPP play’s)
SG Andrew Wiggins – 6,900 FD & 7,200 DK
With Jimmy Butler confirmed out for Wednesday night’s game, the Minnesota Timberwolves will be relying heavily on two players; Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony Towns. Without Butlers presence in the offense, usage rates will sky rocket Wiggins and remain high for KAT. If this game stays close (which the spread indicates it should) having shares of Wiggins and KAT could be imperative if you plan on taking down a Cash or GPP game. At such reasonable salaries of 6,900 on Fan Duel and 2,300 on Draft Kings, I believe Wiggins has a 35-point floor to go along with 50+ point ceiling if he gets going. The Minnesota Timberwolves are underdogs by just 2 points in a 210 over-under.
Other Cash SG Option(s): Devin Booker
SF Tobias Harris – 6,500 FD & 6,200 DK
Tobias Harris has a great matchup in an expected close game with a high over-under. That sentence right there should be words to live by…In DFS at least. Harris matches up against Taj Gibson tonight as the Minnesota Timberwolves attempt to adjust their offense with Jimmy Butler sidelined. Tobias Harris has played exceptionally well this year averaging 30 FD points per game over his first four games. Vegas has this game favoring Detroit by just two in a 210 over-under. I expect Tobias Harris to be a featured part of Detroit’s offense tonight as Taj Gibson is literally no match for Harris with his ability to drive but also able to pull up for mid-range shots and three pointers. I like the game stack here but if you don’t Tobias Harris is a great play at 6,500 on Fan Duel and 6,200 on Draft Kings.
Other Cash SF Option(s): Lebron James
PF Ben Simmons – 8,800 FD & 8,800 DK
Ben Simmons has played like an All-Star over his first four games averaging 41.2 FD points per game. Simmons has solidified his spot in this offense and looks comfortable and confident. The only thing you need to do to love this play is look at his game logs. His minutes and usage are consistently high! In tonight’s matchup against Luc Mbah a Moute he should have no problem reaching value at his 8,800 FD salary. The 76ers are 3.5-point underdogs in a 221.5 expected total. There should be plenty of fantasy goodness to go around and considering Ben Simmons recent successes, I don’t think the bus stops here – matching up against Luc Mbah a Moute, a solid 31 years old defender but no match for Ben Simmons, a thriving 21-year-old that has 2’’ and 10 years on the Lakers Veteran.
Other Cash PF Option(s): LaMarcus Aldridge
C Karl-Anthony Towns– 10,100 FD & 8,600 DK
With Jimmy Butler confirmed out for Wednesday night’s game, the Minnesota Timberwolves will be relying heavily on two players; Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony Towns. Similar to the games last season when Zach Levine was injured, the Timberwolves will be going back to a two-man domination with their most talented players. Usage will be sky high for KAT and Wiggins in tonight’s matchup against the Detroit Pistons. Las Vegas has this game favoring Detroit by just 2 points in a 210 over-under. This spread is encouraging and makes me like this game stack even more.
Other Cash Center Option(s): Clint Capela
