This is a nice slate with 7 games with the 3 highest scoring games on the slate- Wizards/Kings(235.6), Nets/Pelicans(235.6) & and the Bucks/Wolves(234) with the Wizard/Kings & Bucks/Wolves running at the fastest pace.
**Giannis and AD are the highest priced players in the slate. Both are in good spots today. If I had to choose I would lean towards Davis due to the elite matchup.
Chris Paul (HOU)
Paul has a nice bump in usage with Harden off the court. He is in a good spot vs his old team. Good chance he hits value, but he will be on the higher side of ownership tonight. In play, but if you wants some pivots look below.
Kemba Walker (CHA)
Walker is running a 34% usage and averaging 1.3 FPPMs this year. He gets an excellent matchup tonight and just put up 40 FPs agains the Bulls. Tonight, he is playing at home where he plays much better. Nice pivot off Paul and should have lower ownership.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL)
Bledsoe has hit value in his last 3 games 39, 48, 38.
Gets a good matchup vs Teague and the Wolves in a fast paced game.
Also consider- Kyle Lowry, John Wall(bump if Beal sits)
Derrick Rose (MIN)
Wiggins listed as questionable and so is Butler, if both of these guys sits I am locking in Rose. Still underpriced for his production.
Khris Middleton (MIL)
Middleton is averaging 40 FPPG and taking around 15 shots along with scoring 23 or more real points in 3 of the 4 games this year. He has actually been playing SF and has a very good matchup vs the Wolves, who just allowed Kawhi to go off for 35 points on Wednesday. Taking a eight 3s a game and shooting 15 shots per game.
Jrue Holiday (NO)
Holiday is a bit cheap on DK at only 6.9K. He dropped 43 and 31 in his last two games .
Lou Williams (LAC) GPP- Lou just out to 24 FPs against the Rockets shooting 3-16. If connects on a few more shots he can easily hit 6x.
Klay Thompson (GS) GPP
Thompson has put up a consistent 25 FPs over the past 3 games. His shot has been a bit off only hitting 1 of 5 or 6 three pointers a game. His shot will start dropping soon and a big game is coming up. I am taking a chance on that tonight vs the Knicks.
Also consider- Zach LaVine, Bradley Beal.
Danyean Dotson (NY) – pace and and blowout potential. Suggested him in Wednesday and he wen my off for 11x. Dotson has earned his minutes.
Joe Harris (BKN)- playing well this year scoring double digit points in all 4 games hit year and 27 or more FPs in 3 of the 4 games. Excellent spot in this pace game.
Austin Rivers(GPP play) playing well over 20 minutes a game and has an excellent matchup. If Beal sits Rivers becomes an excellent GPP play:
**IF Wiggins sits out then Josh Okogie becomes a solid value play.
Danillo Galliari (LAC)
Playing at a high level this year with an Gallo just dropped 38 FPs on the Rockets a few games ago.
Nemanji Bjelica (SAC)
Starting for the Kings and playing around 30 minutes a game. Has flashed 45 FPs upside. Like Bjelica in his fast paced game.
Caris LeVert (BKN)
Debating between LeVert and Russel. Both in good spots vs the Pelicans. I also think Spencer Dinwiddie is in play as well GPP only. LeVert has been playing well.
Kelly Oubre (WAS)
Should additional minutes again if Mahinni is out. Nice fast paced game with a high total.
Jabari Parker (CHI)-excellent value on DK at 5.5k. Should start and see close to 30 minutes with Portis out. Put up 23 FPs or more in all 4 games this year. Much better play on DK.
Gerald Green GPP Play (HOU)- no Harden and a lot of usage and shots to go around. Green loves to shoot.
Also Conside-Nikola Mirotic
Anthony Davis (NO)
AD is leading the way this year with an elite 1.96 FPPM over the first 3 games and tonight he gets an elite matchup vs the Nets.
Montrezl Harrel (LAC)
Playing at a high level right now and just dropped 42 FPs on the Rockets.
Tobias Harris (LAC)
40 plus FPs in 3 of his 4 games this year. Nice value on DK.
Marvin Bagley (SAC)- this kid had talent and is a perfect example of a GPP play 44, 20, 46, 21 over the past 4 games. Nice matchup as the Wizards are ranked 21st allowing 51 FPs to opposing PFs.
Noah Vonleh (NY)
Playing well this year. Good chance for 6x tonight.
Markieff Morris (WAS)
This is an excellent spot for Morris, especially if Mahinmi is out again. Fast paced game and Morris is going shoot 15-20 times tonight.
John Henson (MIL) GPP Punt play- played well over the last 3 games scoring 29.8, 27.3 and 18.2 along with 1.4 FPPM. Nice matchup vs the Wolves who are ranked 23rd vs opposing PFs.
Clint Capela (HOU)
Excellent Play on dk at only 6.7k. He just dropped 44 FPs in the Clippers with Harden on the floor.
Karl Anthony-Townes (GPP)- I am not usually a fan of KAT, but his price and this matchup are what I am looking at. 8k and Bucks have trouble guarding Bigs.
Julius Randle (NO)– GPP play, keep attacking the Nets with Cs as they were ranked on of the worst last year and right up there again this year allowing 66 FPs. This year he is averaging 1.4 FPPM and playing right around 23 minutes a game. Risk is his minutes, but if he stays out on the court for 24 plus minutes Randle could deliver close to 40 FPs in this matchup.
Wendell Carter Jr (CHI)– Played 30 plus minutes in last 2 games. Love this matchup vs the Hornets. No Portis. Could see 7x tonight. DK only.
Ed Davis (BKN)- rebounding beast averaging 9 rebounds a game on only 17.5 minutes per game. Love this spot for Davis with the pace up and poor defense of the Pelicans.
