Another 6 game slate. 5-8 games slates are my favorites.
*Hornets/Wizards game: biggest pace bump on the slate goes to the Hornets + 6 possession. Also both teams are ranked in the top 10 for worst defenses.
*Sixers get the 2nd highest pace bump and the best over all matchup on the board tonight. Hawks ranke 30th over all.
Excellent spot for Graham and the Hornets tonight as the get the biggest bump in pace and the 28th worse team defensively. He did not play well last game, but should bounce back tonight. Terry Rozier is a nice play as well.
Solid matchup and playing a bit more with McRae out. Good game to target as both teams lack defensively.
Playing more minutes with the absence omg J Rich. 20 plus in 3 straight games. He should do well in this matchup.
I have watched Russell go off on the Celtics a few times now. He is one of the top in touches this year and has played very well as of late. I am going to go out on a limb and say he drops 40 real points tonight.
Beal has played well since returning from injury with a 36% usage rate, 4 straight 50+ FPs games and 20+ shots in the last 5 games. Hornets are ranked 22nd in over all defense.
Smart will play well tonight and have little ownership. Prefer on DK.
This is the type of game that Simmons excels in.
Green is another one who plays well vs the Celtics. Smart should get him going, which will make Green step up his game.
Pascal Siakam/Serge Ibaka
This is an excellent matchup for both of these players. Ibaka is way too cheap on FD.
Plays minutes and gets an excellent matchup.
Embiid is under 10k on both sites tonight and gets an elite matchup. He has not hit the 50 mark in the last 4 games, but that will change tonight.
Jokic has lead the league in touches this year and over the last 5 games has seen an increase of 18 more per game. The offense is flowing through him with Murray off the floor. He has been a machine as of late. Contrarian option would be to play both Embiid and Jokic tonight on DK.
The Warriors let go do Willie Cayley-Stein which opened up more minutes for Chriss. Last game he played 31 minutes. He should do well vs the Celtics tonight.
Bryant finally played solid minutes since returning from injury. Played very well and posted 44 FPs. His price did not go up much which will draw a lot of ownership to him tonight. If he gets 25 + minutes he should return value. It will be about the minutes.
