8 game slate
*Giannis has been ruled out- Eric Bledsoe & Khris Middleton both get nice bumps in usage. They should also be very popular. I actually liked Middleton prior to the Giannis news. This is a very good matchup for both. Can also look at some of the other Buck players in this matchup. Lopez, DiVincenzo, Ilyasova, Matthews, Connaughton are all solid plays and underpriced for this matchup. Lopez, Ilyasova and Connaughton are my favorite of this bunch with Bledsoe & Middleton as top plays.
*If Porzingas sits out then Doncic becomes a good play.
Young has been playing extremely well as of late, especially over the past 3 games(77,56,73). His 73 FPs performance came against the Raptors who he plays tonight.
Walker has taken over 20 shots with Tatum off the floor. If Tatum sits then Walker becomes an good play even against the Heat.
No Garland, so Exum should play some additional minutes. Has played decent and only 3.1K on DK.
George Hill/Donte DiVincenzo
Beal has put up over 20 shots and 50 FPs over the last 2 games.
Booker has been on a tear lately and should go head to head with Doncic tonight.
Playing 30 + minutes a night as of late. Should have no problem getting shots off vs the Suns tonight.
Should step it up vs Butler tonight.
Butler plays well vs Celtics. Don’t think many will be on him and can see him playing well tonight.
Troy Brown Jr.
Tim Hardaway Jr.
Price is down and still playing solid minutes.
Excellent matchup and still playing minutes and well even with the Pelicans healthy.
Miniyes back up and playing well. Excellent matchup.
Underpriced for his talent. Should do well, especially now with Giannis out.
No Giannis Ilyasova should slide into the starting lineup.
Playing at a high level with Murray off the floor. 2 triple doubles in the past 3 games. Grizzlies run fast and play poor defense.
Ayton has played in the mid to high 30s as of late. Love the matchup vs the Mavs who have struggled defending the center position as of late.
Playing minutes and gets an elite matchup
Giannis is out and everyone will jump on Bledsoe and Middleton and both are good plays. Lopez actually picks up a nice bump in usage. Also his is an excellent matchup for him at a reasonably price.
