Looking at a decent size slate for this Thursday with 5 games.
**James Harden is listed as questionable- keep an eye out for his status.
**LeBron James & Rajon Rondo have already been ruled out. This opens up more usage for Kyle Kuzma (+9.5%, 32.2% total usage)& Brandon Ingram(+4% , 26.2% usage)while Josh Hart & Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should see extended minutes. Also, JaVale McGee is listed as questionable and if he sits Ivica Zubac becomes an elite play again as he filled in well for McGee posting 33 or more FPs in 3 straight games. Lance Stephenson should also see additional minutes and becomes a nice punt play. The Lakers/Kings game runs at the fastest pace on the night and both teams have allowed 2nd and 3rd most FPs over the past 30 days for this slate. Good game to target
DvP for tonight’s games over the last 30 days
Lillards price has dropped on DK to well under 9k. 7.8 K a game ago and now 8.3k. Give me all the Dame tonight at this price vs the Warriors. Lillard has averaged 33.6 pts, 6.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds over the last 5 games vs the Warriors.
Playing at an elite level this year. Game has a close spread, so we should expect Uncle Drew to play over 30 minutes. He has posted 2 60 + FPs performances on the last 4 games.
James and Rondo ruled out. Ball should see well over 30 minutes in a fast paced game against one of he worst defensive teams. This is the game to target.
GPP play. First game for the Rockets Rivers played 31 minutes. He should play similar minutes tonight vs the Celtics.
Hill is only 3.5K on DK and worth a look if you need to save some salary. Played over 20 minutes in 3 of his last 4 games.
20 + FPs in 2 straight games. Nice punt play.
Looks like Harden will play tonight. Playing well with Paul off the floor and has played well vs the Celtics in the past.
Simple and plain. I play Smart vs Harden. He loves playing vs Harden and will do what he can to limit him.
Josh Hart & Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Should see additional minutes.
If you are looking for raw points tonight then Giannis is the guy. 76 & 65 FPs s the Knicks this year.
Played well as of late and price still under 5k.
see above in intro.
Should see additional minutes with James and Rondo out. GPP Punt Play with high upside.
Playing well as of late and should do well vs Celtics.
It looks like Horford is back up to his regular minutes as he played 30 on Christmas day. He is under priced on DK now at only 5.6k. Over the past 5 games vs the Rockets, Horford has averaged 16.4 pts, 6.4 reb & 5.6 assists. Keep an eye on any minutes limitations before lock. If there is not restrictions he is in a great spot at this price.
McGee has been ruled and Zubac has filled in nicely for him posting back to back 30+ FPs games. Price is still a bit low, so taking advantage of him tonight again. Can play him an Horford today on DK together.
