10 game slate tonight with a 7:30 start time.

*The Clippers & Suns game has the highest total and 2 poor defensive team. This game offers some good options. Danilo Gallinari, Tobias Harris, Lou Williams and who ever starts at center(Gortat or Boban). Devon Booker, DeAndre Ayton & TJ Warren are in good spots as well.

**Bucks are in an elite spot, but I am not sure the Hawks will keep up. That being said Eric Bledsoe is on the cheaper end and is in a good spot. Him and Brook Lopez May be the only 2 I would be interested in due to their lower prices.


DvP chart FPs over last 30 days

Knicks have been getting smashed as of late. Hawks and Clippers right behind them. 3 teams to target.

**Questionable tags**
**Ricky Rubio is listed as questionable- if he sits Dante Exum and Jae Crowder both become elite plays.

**Myles Turner is listed as questionable. If he sits Domantas Sabonis is in play. He has posted 32,40,35 & 36 in his last 4 games.

**Kyle Kuzma is listed as questionable-if he sits Brandon Ingram, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and  or Josh Hart all become excellent plays. Lonzo Ball and JaVale McGee are also good plays.  Lance Stephenson becomes a very good value play with close to 10x upside in this matchup if he gets 25 plus minutes. Lakers offer some good value tonight.


Point Guard

Terry Rozier

Rozier has played well as a starter posting 16.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3 three pointers over 3 games this year.

DJ Augastin

Playing well as of late.

Russell Westbrook

Worth a look if you are looking to pay up.

Lonzo Ball

Jeff Teague– starting today and in play if no minutes limitation.

Shabazz Napier– Punt Play. Anytime he has played over 20 minutes Napier has exceeded 20 FPs this year. 2 straight games over 20 minutes and one with 50 FPs.


Shooting Guard

Marcus Smart

Lou Williams

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope & Josh Hart

KCP has played well over the last few games. Stepped in for Kuzma as a starter in second half of last game. Still cheap enough to deliver value. Hart has been playing well also.

Jaylen Brown

Zach LaVine


Small Forward

Paul George

George is playing at an elite level this year. Gets an excellent matchup as the Blazers are ranked 29th over the past 30 days vs opposing SFs.

Brandon Ingram

Has picked it up as of late. James still out and Kuzma May be out as well.

Gordon Hayward

Irving is out and Morris is questionable. Solid price on DK at 5.4k. Took control of offense with these 2 guys out last time.

Jae Crowder– recommended him last game and he crushed. 39,5 FPs in 27 minutes. Solid matchup again tonight.

Moe Harkless-Has played over 30 minutes in the last 3 games scoring 30 or more FPs in all 3.  The Blazers will need to run Harkless a lot tonight to try and defend George. Still in play at his reduced price.

Chandler Hutchinson– is starting today and only 3k on DK.


Power Forward

Thad Young

– Playing well as of late and gets an excellent matchup tonight vs the Bulls.

Tobias Harris 

Dropped 53 vs Suns earlier this year.

Jaren Jackson & JaMychal Green

These 2 are both in excellent spots tonight vs the Nets. Jackson dropped 36/8/2 last time out vs the Nets. Green is only 4K on DK and could easily return value tonight.

Laurie Markkanen

Kevin Knox & Noah Vonleh

Knox has been playing a tong of minutes.

James Johnson & Kelly Olynyk

Nice spot for both these players.



Karl-Anthony Towns

High usage as of late. Should be popular.

Nikola Vucuvic is in a good spot as well and a pivot of KAT.


DeAndre Jordan

Jordan has put up 2 sub par games, which should reduce his ownership. He put up 4 straight double/doubles vs the Celtics 14/13 in last game and 30/13 in the prior game. Celtics struggle with rebounds. Jordan should easily double/double here 12/15.

JaVale McGee

Al Horford

Keep an eye for any news on Horford’s minutes. If his minutes go up to around 30 Horford becomes a good play, especially if Morris sits as well.

Brook Lopez- Continues to play solid minutes and has returned 25 or more FPS in his last 5 games. Excellent matchup and should have no problem getting off his shot tonight.

Hassan Whiteside- GPP punt play.  Minutes are down, but if he plays 25-30 minutes the upside is around 40-50FPs. Risky play with some reward.
