NBA DFS Building Blocks 11.4

Mandatory Credit: Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

6 game slate. Tonight I am focusing on playing 2 10K + players. Harden and Giannis. I Also added players that will be out tonight and a brief overview of who I see stepping up. This area will also help fill in some plays.

*Sheet shows today’s games with pace, spread and DvP for opponent.
Studs to build around
James Harden: Westbrook is sitting outside tonight opening up more usage for Harden. In 55 minutes this year with Westbrook off the court Hardens usage goes up to 48.5%.
Giannis Antetokounmpo: Wolves are ranked 29th vs the SF position. Over the first 6 games Giannis has put up 70 or more FPs in half of those games. No Townes tonight, so he should have no competition for rebounds. Feels like a triple/double night for Giannis.
*These are the two I am rolling with, but Andre Drummond & Damien Lillard are solid options as well.
On DK stacking Harden & Antetokounmpo leaves $4650 per player. Potential for each of them to put up 70+ tonight. Plenty of $ to build a lineup with the value tonight.
*Players out tonight open up value on some teams. Listed below are the players that are out with notes on players that should do well in their absence.
Towns out: Teague gets a +7.1 bump in usage and has shown his upside last game. Dieng has double/double upside with 20+ minutes. I was all over his on Saturday once I saw he was starting . Still in play at only 3.3K on DK. Layman should continue to see more minutes and played well last game with Towns out. Culver played well also last game with a bump in minutes(3.3K on DK).
Embiid out: Opens up usage and minutes. Horford has picked up the biggest jump in usage and still a reasonable price. Harris, Simmons are in play as well and put up over 40 FPs last game with Embiid out. J Rich is under 5K on DK and could be the best value play. Kyle O’Quinn filled in for Embiid and put up 9/7/5 in 18 minutes.
Jarren Jackson out: Ja Morant picks up the biggest bump in usage. Next is Valancuinas. Dylan Brooks will pick up some usage and potential a few extra minutes. Still a good price. Kyle Anderson is only 3.3 K on DK and should see an increase in minutes tonight with 30 FP upside. Brandon Clarke may be the one filling in for Jackson and he just put up 40 FPs in only 22 minutes.
Westbrook out: Harden usage is close to 50% with Westbrook off the floor and hard to pass up at his current price, especially on DK. Eric Gordon should slide into the starting lineup and makes a nice value play at only 4K on DK. He should pick up a lot of ownership as well. Chris Clemons played 22 and put up 24 FPs. He is only 3k and makes a nice value play with Westbrook out.
DET(Griffin, Rose, Jackson and potentially Frazier: Drummond has been an absolute beast so far this year. Price is on the rise, but still has upside at 10.4K. Luke Kennard has been very consistent. Bruce Brown player 40 minutes last game and could see 30 + tonight. 39 FPs in that game. Marcus Morris is only 4K with a solid matchup and Langston Galloway is  dirt cheap and could see additional minutes tonight.
Warriors(Green, Curry, potentially Russell out):  GRob, Lee and Paschall have been doing well with these 3 off the court. Also Alec Burks has the upside playing 20  plus minutes. He should get over looked after a few disappointing games. Like him to do well tonight.
Favors(questionable): If Favors sits again then Okafor becomes viable again. Only 3.1K on DK and put up 30 plus FPs the last 2 games with Favors out.
