Tuesday 8 game slate.
Listed at the bottom will be my core players that I will be using.
**Blake Griffin & Andre Drummond we’re both limited vs the Celtics last game. Prices have drop and now the Celtics are may be limited with big men tonight with Theis rules out and Baynes possible out as well. I will be playing one of these guys in my GPP lineup tonight and right now leaning Drummond, but both make good GPP plays tonight
Walker has stepped up his game this year running a 34.5% usage and just shy of 50 FPPG. He gets a solid matchup vs the Heat who are ranked 22nd vs opposing PGs. Also, earlier this year he dropped 39 real points and 59 FPS.
Westbrook and Beverly have some history with going at each other during games. He has some high point games vs Beverly scoring 47, 51, 49 with either a triple double or close to in in those games. I like Westbrook on DK at 10.5k tonight and he step it up a bit going at Beverly.
DK only for me.
Simmons is averaging 1.48 FPPM and a double/double. He has put up 50 or more DK FPS in 4 of the 6 games this year and one he got hurt in. This should be a close game and Simmons could play around 35 minutes, which increases his upside. Much better value on DK at 9,1K.
Johnson has been playing between 20-27 minutes and has shown 27 FPs upside so far this season. He could see closer to 25+ minutes on a back to back. Like his upside in this matchup. GPP Play.
This is an excellent matchup for Sexton tonight and he could see additional minutes with a new coach. Sneaky GPP punt play that could go off tonight if he gets an increase in minutes in this matchup.
We should see Beverly on the court a good amount to guard Westbrook tonight. They have a bit of history going at each other during the game. Beverly has put up some good games vs Westbrook in the past and could see him doing so again tonight.
**If DeAron Fox sits out tonight Frank Mason becomes an excellent value play.
Fournier has the highest usage on the Magic at 26.7% and is averaging 16 shots a game. This isn’t a nice matchup for him as Kings rank 20th vs opposing SGs.
Heild has played well over he last 3 games scoring 20 plus points, playing 35 plus minutes and taking close to 20 shots in that timeframe. Shimmery has been ruled out, so Heild should be good for 35 minutes again.
McCollum started out the season shooting 35% from the field, but has shot much better over the past three games. The matchup is what I am looking at tonight as the Rockets have allowed just shy of 50 FPs over the past 3 games to opposing SGs. Price is down to 6.4k on DK and 6.6k on FD. He is still taking close to 20 shots a game with a usage at 26.2%. This could be a big game for McCollum.
**Bradley Beal is too cheap on DK and possesses 50 FPS upside. GPP play. I dont see anyone on the Grizzles stopping his shot.
High usage off the bench going against the Hawks who rank 24th vs PGs and 27th vs SGs. Excellent matchup for Clarkson and may be potential for extra minutes with the new coach. More minutes higher upside. GPP
GPP Punt play. Stauskus has been playing putting up 30 or more FPS in 2 of 6 games this year and 20 in another.
Leonard gets a good matchup vs the Sixers as they rank 21st against opposing SFs. I have him projected for 54 FPS, which is just above 5x. He rested yesterday, so he is good to go tonight.
He has been playing very well as of late putting up 40 or more FPs in his last three games. This is one of my favorite games on the night.
Harkless is ruled out, so Turner should play around 25 minutes again. He has put up 20 or more FPS in all games this year.
GPP play. Usage last game with no Harden and put up 19 points on 14 shots.
GPP Play. Starting to see an increase in minutes and has put up double digit points in the last two games. Only 3.4k on DK and has 10x upside.
39 and 32 FPs on 27 and 22 minutes respectively over the last two games with Love out.
Price is coming down and he gets a nice matchup vs the Wizards as they rank 23rd vs opposing PFs. I have him projected at 29 FPs, which is between 6.5 and 7x.
The Rockets are ranked dead last vs opposing PFs. Aminu is the perfect example of a GPP play and has shown 38 FP upside.
Markieff Morris has been ruled out and Oubre is questionable. Green has played 20 or more minutes and scored 20 or more FPs over the past 3 games. Should see an uptick in minutes tonight, which gives him 7-8x upside tonight.
Has been starting for the Thunder and playing well. Good play tonight and an elite play if bot Noel and Adams sit out.
Collins has surpassed the 20 FP mark 4 times in 6 games this year and 30 or more twice. He is a much better value on DK at 4k and has a solid matchup vs the Rockets tonight. Minutes have seen an uptick over the past 3 games. I could see Collins putting up 6-7x in this matchup.
The Kings have been one of the worst teams defending opposing centers and Vuc is playing well this year.
Excellent matchup for Gasol as the Wizards are ranked 27th vs opposing Cs. He will have to play well in order for the Grizzlies to keep up with the Wizards.
DK only great price at 6K for GPP. Love this matchup for him.
Noel and Adams are both listed as questionable. If Adams sits again and Noel plays then Noel becomes an elite play again. If both sits then Jerami Grant is the play. On DK you can keep one of these players as utility and make the change when news breaks.
I was on him last night and he only played 12 minutes. I can see him getting additional minutes tonight on the back to back and playing 20 plus. GPP that could return 6x plus.
Russell Westbrook- DK
Jusif Nurkic or Zack Collins
Listed below are some of my projections ranked by DK value(FD value is to the left).
