PG Jrue Holiday – 7,300 FD & 6,200 DK
With Anthony Davis out, Jrue Holiday’s usage should be through the roof. The Pelicans have a major void in their offensive with Davis sidelined, Jrue Holiday should pick up most of the slack and at a 7,300 FD salary, he becomes a lock for me tonight on a small five game slate.
Other Cash PG Option(s): Kyrie Irving & Damion Lillard
SG C.J McCollum – 7,700 FD & 7,300 DK
McCollum finds himself in a nice matchup today facing Austin Rivers and the L.A Clippers. McCollum is a safe cash game play on a night were the Shooting Guard position has minimal elite options. The Portland Trail blazers are favored by -2.5 in a 215 over-under (highest O/U on the slate).
Other Cash SG Option(s): Kent Bazemore
SF Giannis Antetokounmpo – 12,400 FD & 12,000 DK
Giannis Antetokounmpo is too hot to fade right now. The only question is, can you fit him in your lineup considering his high, $12,400 Fan Duel salary & $12,000 Draft Kings Salary. His salary is high but he’s worth the price if you can figure out how to fit him in. Khris Middleton is the perfect hedge off Antetokounmpo.
Other Cash SF Option(s): Evan Turner & Danilo Galinari
PF Blake Griffin – 6,300 FD & 5,800 DK
Blake Griffin is by far the safest play at Power Forward tonight matching up against Al-Farouq Aminu and the Portland Trail Blazers. Griffin is priced up but well worth it. The L.A Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers are in the highest over-under of the night with a close -2.5-point spread favoring the Trail Blazers. Exposure to this game is critical in order to win any league tonight, GPP or Cash.
Other Cash PF Option(s): Jayson Tatum & John Collins (GPP)
C DeMarcus Cousins– 11,800 FD & 11,500 DK
With Anthony Davis out for tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings, DeMarcus Cousins is almost guaranteed to go off against his old team. Don’t think too much, this is an easy lock!
Other Cash Center Option(s): Marc Gasol & Willie Cauley-Stein (GPP)
