Nets VS Celtics
Boston is one of the better defensive teams in the league, so I really don’t have any interest in anyone on the Nets (Dinwiddie fine if you want to take a shot on him in tournaments). On the Celtics side my favorite play is Kemba Walker. Kemba price dropped down to 6.8k, after that scary injury he had the other night. Thankfully it was nothing huge and he is good to go. Boston in a major pace up spot versus one of the bottom tier defensive teams in the league, in a matchup like this kemba could get you 40 plus fantasy points.
Jazz VS Pacers
Not big on anyone on Utah, If Gobert misses again Donovan Mitchell is a fine tournament play. On the Pacers side Brogdon is still too cheap. He does have a tough matchup against the Jazz, but a guy whos has shown us he can get you 50-60 fantasy points im not scared to core Brogdon against Utah at only 6.8k.
Heat VS Rockets
Miami is without Jimmy Butler, which is huge because it’s a huge boost to people like Dragic, Herro, Nunn, Bam, and Winslow who is rejoining the team. We haven’t gotten news yet, but I do expect Winslow to have a minutes limit tonight. I would not have both Dragic or Nunn I would only pick between one of them tonight because of all the great guards tonight (Kemba, Rubio, Lou Will, Brogdon, and etc.). Bam price went up to 7.5k, but I still think that is too cheap, Bam has legitimate 40-50 point upside especially if this game stays close.
Hawks VS Bucks
First thing is first, I don’t expect this game to be close I see the Bucks blowing out the Hawks. The reason I am still talking about this game is, Trae Young is fine for tournaments we know his upside. If this game is going to stay close it will be because of him and it is also one of the highest scoring games of the night according to Vegas. Khris Middelton rejoins the lineup, but he will be limited tonight. The person who I like on the Bucks is Eric Bledsole who is still averaging over a fantasy point per minute with both Giannis and Middelton on the court. I probably wouldn’t risk Bledsoe in cash because of the chance of a blowout, but I don’t mind stacking this game with Trae, Giannis, and Bledsole in tournaments.
Clippers versus Grizzlies
Kawhi Leonard is out, which means I am a big fan of Lou Will, Harrell, and PG. Kawhi being out not only gives these guys a usage bump, but this game is also a pace up spot for the Clippers. Memphis is one of the worst defensive teams in the league and also play at one of the highest paces in the league. I am not really scared of this game blowing out, especially because the Clippers are playing on a back to back. Mo Harkless makes a good value play today, since we don’t have much yet (should change as the day goes on).
My favorite point guard on this slate is probably Ricky Rubio. He is insanely mispriced at 5.5k and gets a pace up spot against the Washington Wizards. Another person I like tonight is Hassan Whiteside. Whiteisde doesn’t have the best matchup, but at 6.6k a guy who can easily get you 40 fantasy points a night I don’t think you can overlook him at a 6.6k price tag. The game everyone is talking about, Anthony Davis return to New Orleans I have no interest in. I do believe in narratives at times, but I wouldn’t be shocked if the Lakers actually blew out the Pelicans tonight. On top of that AD is priced at 10k I expect him to hit value tonight or maybe even go over, but with all the amazing plays we have today at the 5-8k range I don’t see any point in paying up for a guy Like AD, Bron, Harden, or Giannis today. If you want AD or Ingram for a tournament play I am fine with it, just don’t see them as cash plays.
