We finally get a week in the NBA where at least 6 games are scheduled every day. Yeah Buddy.



DvP Chart over the last 30 days for tonight’s games.


Questionable Tag/What-Ifs

*Miles Turner is listed as questionable and if he can not go then Domantas Sabonis is in play in this elite matchup vs the Suns, who rank dead last vs opposing centers. If- Miles Turner does play and has no limitations then he is in play.

*Derrick Rose is listed as questionable and Jeff Teague is listed as a game-time-decision. If Rose sits then Teague should play 30 plus minutes and is in a good spot, but the player I am more interested in is Tyus Jones. This is only if Rose is out and Teague plays.  Jones should play extended minutes if Rose sits and most people will just by-pass him because he is not starting, but when one of other PGs sit out Jones has played extended minutes and delivered in most of those games. If Teague and Rose play I have no interest in Jones.

*If Gary Harris sits out again then Malik Beasley and Monte Morris are worth a look.



Paul George

Kevin Huerter

Victor Oladipo


Point Guard

Kris Dunn

Poster 35 plus FPs in 4 of his last 5 games. Gets a nice matchup tonight.

Trae Young

Lin is out, so should see extended run.

Lonzo Ball

Eric Bledsoe 

Tyus  Jones– see above.


Shooting Guard

Zach LaVine

LaVine is in an excellent spot tonight vs a Lakers team who have allowed the most FPs to opposing SGs. He should excel in this matchup.


Victor Oladipo

Oladipo has been mediocre over the past four games putting an average of 27.5 FPs in that time-frame. If we look into these scores a bit he had a tough matchup vs the Celtics and Raptors. Due to his low fantasy production over the past 4 games his price has dropped under 8K on DK for the first time in a long while. I will be taking advantage of the price drop and elite matchup in GPPs tonight.


Kevin Huerter

Huerter has been playing heavy minutes with most games in the high 30s and low 40s. Price is still under 5K and he has put up 30 or more FPs in 3 or the last 4 games. Also, he has been shooting a to as of late with more that 15 shots in 3 of his last 4 games. Thunder are ranked 24th vs opposing SGs over the past 30 days.


Dennis Schroder

Revenge game back in the ATL. Pace up spot an poor defense.


Small Forward

Paul George

Price has come down a bit, but he is still producing 42 + FPs over the last 3 games. Tonight he gets an elite matchup vs the Hawks, who rank dead last vs opposing SFs. Locking George in tonight.


Jimmy Butler



Brandon Ingram


DeAndre’ Bembry

In play if Prince sits out again. Bembry has been playing a lot of minutes and delivering in most games.


Power Forward

Kyle Kuzma

Playing a lot of minutes and playing well with James and Rondo off he court.


Lauri Markkanen

Price is down and still producing. Good spot for Markkanen tonight. Averaging 1.0 FPPM this season.


Draymond Green

A game Dray should step up for and price is down.


Omari Spellman

Dedmon out, so Spellman should get extended minutes. Came up big last time he started.

Taj Gibson

Sixers struggle vs the PF. Saric in a good spot as well.



Nikola Jokic 

Minutes are up and put up 2 triple/doubles and 4 straight double/doubles in past 4 games. He will step it up tonight in this matchup vs the Warriors. He is the player I would pay up for tonight.


Brook Lopez


Steven Adams



JaVale McGee- nice matchup for McGee tonight and worth a look in GPP. He should be able to dominate the Bulls even in limited minutes.

Tyler Dorsey– with Lin listed as doubtful Dorsey would get backup PG minutes putting him in play st 3.1K on DK.

Corey Joseph- worth a look at his price in an elite matchup.

Bobby Portis– look at his recent game logs. 26.5, 22.5. 24.3  these FPs were done in 20 minutes or less. Definitely worth a look vs the Lakers tonight.

Alex Len

Tyreke Evans
