Karl Anthony Towns
Willie Cauley Stein
Nets VS Cavs
Nets play the Cavs which is a pace down spot for them, but with all the injuries they are dealing with Dinwiddie and Prince still make for great plays. If Love misses again I like Tristian Thomposon and Nance who get a pace up spot and get to play Brooklyn who struggles to guard bigs.
Grizzlies VS Pacers
On the Memphis side I am not a fan of anyone really. On the other hand on the Pacers side Brogdon is one of my favorite plays tonight. Lamb, Sabonis, and Turner are back, but at 6k Brogdon is just too cheap. He has shown us 40-50 point upside even when everyone is healthy.
Timberwolves VS Hawks
Trae Young has the ability to break the slate any day, with his 60-70 ceiling, which he could hit tonight versus the Wolves. I love young, but see him more as a tournament play than cash. On the Wolves side, Towns is one of my favorite plays today, but I don’t know if I will get to him or not because of how loaded the center spot is today (will get to them in the rest of the article) Jeff Teague and Graham make for fine value plays.
Kings VS Celtics
Bogdan Bogdanovic might miss today, but I still don’t have much interest in Sacramento due to how good of a defensive team Boston is (If Bogdan does miss Buddy is a pretty good option for tournaments). On the Celtics side Hayward and Kemba are out, which gives Brown and Tatum a huge usage boost. Wannamaker makes a good value play.
Hornets VS Heat
The only side of this game I like is the Miami Side. Butler is only priced at 7.7k, which is just to low especially vs one of the worst defensive teams in the league against the Hornets. Bam Adebayo is another guy who is just mispriced. Bam is priced at 7.1k and in competitive games he is playing in the high 30 minutes. If the Hornets keep the game close I can see Jimmy, Bam, and even Dragic crush their price tags.
Like I said this slate is packed with amazing centers, 2 other ones I want to touch on are Whiteside and Embiid. Whiteside is too cheap at 6k, especially versus Chicago. Joel Embiid on the other hand is PRICED AT 8.8K! For someone with Joels’ skillset he should never be priced that low. In his last 2 games Joel has gotten over 40 fantasy points, you must be thinking that’s barley close to value? In those 2 games Joel played in the mid 20s and because of a blowout and another game he was in foul trouble. This game against the Raptors should be a competitive one, which means we should see Joel play in the mid 30s. Joel can easily get you 50-60 fantasy points tonight.
