Tuesday night and 5 game starting at 7:30. The Hawks/Lakers game has the highest total, fastest pace and both teams don’t play much defense as they are ranked 29th and 30th. Favorite game to target.


This sheet shows team total, spread, pace & pace differential(good to see which teams get a pace bump) & team DvP(actual team not opp).





Ben Simmons

DK play as his prices dipped below 8k for the first time. The Celtics really don’t have any one to stop him. Solid option if you are looking to pay up at PG/SF.

Trae Young

Young has shown close to a 30% usage rate over the past 5 games. Tonight he gets a very good matchup in a fast paced game. Excellent spot for him tonight.

Ricky Rubio

Pace up spot where Rubio usually plays well.

Rajon Rondo

Rondo in play only if he starts. Fast pace and poor defense. Rondo will shine tonight if he starts and get minutes.



D.J. Augastin

Cheap option that plays solid minutes against a poor defense.



Klay Thompson

SG is the spot to attack the Jazz as the rank 28th over the past 2 week. Thompson or Curry will go off tonight. Klay a bit cheaper.

J.J. Redick

Redick has seen an increase in usage the past 2 games with Harris on the floor.

Evan Fournier & Terrance Ross

This is a solid spot for both of these players. Fournier starts and gets more minutes, while Ross comes off the bench and sees around 25-28 minutes a game. I prefer Fournier due to the slightly higher minutes, but both are in play.



Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Josh Hart is out tonight, so we should see solid minutes from KCP only 3.6K on FD & 3.9K on DK. Fast paced game where he could get off a few additional shots.

Avery Bradley

Dirt cheap on DK and playing the Spurs who rank 27th vs opposing SGs. I can see Bradley playing solid minutes tonight to try and defend DeRozan.



LeBron James

James went off vs the Celtics 2 games ago dropping a triple/double and 70 + FPs. His priced jump slightly after this game, but went down a few hundred dollars after a dud last game. He plays the Hawks who run fast and don’t play defense. Actually neither teams plays much defense as they are ranked 29 & 30th over the past 2 weeks. This is the type of game where James should go off in. Steals leading to fast breaks plus lots of opportunities with the fast pace for peripheral stats.

Taurean Prince

Price continues to drop on DK and tonight may be the best time to play Prince. 4.5k on DK in a fast paced game against the 29th ranked defense. Lin is gone, which opens up more usage.



Gordon Hayward

Hayward’s Minutes have been solid as of late. He has put up (2) 30 + FPs performances over the last 3 games. Hayward is the guy I lean towards when Irving sits out as he takes more of a leadership roll. Also consider Jaylen Brown who plays well with Irving off the floor.

Royce O’Neale & Jay Crowder

O’Neale has averaged 24 minutes over the past 3 games and posted 26.8, 28.5 & 22.5 FPs in that time-frame.  Price is still under 4k.



Anthony Davis

Davis is a GPP play tonight due to his inconsistency with minutes and lack of shot attempts. Played 25 and 34 minutes the last two games and only took 23 shots in that time-frame. This is down from his average of 20 per game this year. This may be the lowest that AD price will go on DK. Worth taking a shot in GPP.

Kyle Kuzma

Kuzma is playing lights out right now scoring 39 & 46 FPs and taking 22 shots a game.

John Collins

Price is dropping on both sites. Nice matchup tonight and should easily double/double in this game.



Kenrich Williams

Williams has logged 37 minutes in the last 2 games with Davis back. He also out up 33 & 41 FPs. Still getting it done and priced under 5k on DK.

Marcus Morris 

Picks up some usage with Irving off the floor.



Joel Embiid

Embiid has shown a fairly safe floor with aound 60 FPs upside. Still priced in the low 10k range on DK.

Rudy Gobert

Gobert gets a nice pace up spot vs the Warriors who rank 26th vs opposing centers.

DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins



JaVale McGee

Zubac is gone, Chandler and Muscala are both questionable. This could open up more minutes for McGee. Excellent matchup against the Hawks. I could see him getting 5 + blocks tonight.


Dark Horses (Risky plays that have high upside and are volatile)

Delon Wright

DK only play. Mack is no longer on the Grizzlies, so Wright should see solid minutes off the bench. Excellent matchup as the Spurs rank dead last vs opposing PGs over the past 2 weeks. Mike Conley is listed as questionable and if he sits ride the Delon Wright train. Favorite GPP play tonight.

Daniel Theis

Theis has played well as of late and could see some additional minutes tonight.

Joakim Noah

Valancuinas is looking like he may sit out again opening up minutes for Noah who played very well last game.

Davis Bertans
