Sunday and the best day to play NBA during football season. Looking at a 7 game slate starting at 6PM.
Listed 4 of my favorite plays at each position tonight.
*Nets/Sun game will run at the fastest pace and the Suns get the better matchup as the Nets rank 21st defensively.
*OKC gets a big pace bump vs the Bucks.
* The worst 3 teams vs the Center position are on this slate. Hornets, Blazers and Nets in that order.
Terry Rozier- Under 6K on DK still playing over 30 minutes a game and get a very nice matchup vs the Sixers. Neto wont be able to guard Rozier. Last 2 games he shot 5-14 and 1-11 gets back on track tonight.
Ricky Rubio- playing well for the Suns. Over 30 minutes a game and gets an elite matchup vs Kryie. Triple/double waiting to happen. Could be tonight in this pace up spot.
Trae Young– Blazer are one of the worst teams defensivley. If the Hawks want to keep up with the Blazers Young will be the player to do so. Plays a ton of minutes and takes over 20 shots a game.
Anfernee Simons- He was my pivot off Neto on Friday. In a good spot again.
Devin Booker– fast paced game equals more shot attempts. Good DvP matchup.
CJ McCollum- Playing a time of minutes but has been cold as of late. I was all over Dame on Friday, tonight it is McCollum’s turn. Elite matchup.
Dennis Schroder– Playing very well off the bench . 35, 27, 9, 35, 26 ,41, 46 FPs over the last 8 games. Excellent matchup and pace up spot. Favorite GPP SG tonight.
Norman Powell- Lowry out Powell will pick up minutes.
Giannis Antetokpinmp/LeBron James– These 2 are both in good spots tonight, but both games could end up in a blow out. Giannis is averaging 2 FPPM this year, yes 2. Even if he plays 30 minutes he should still drop 60. James has a good matchup vs the Raptors and is playing more PG with Rondo still out.
Danillo Gallinari– Nice pace up spot for the Thunder. Gallo has scored 20 plus and exceeded value in his last 2 games. He will have to have a good game if the Thunder want to compete with the Bucks.
Kyle Kuzma– Minutes are on the rise and gets an elite matchup tonight vs the Raptors who rank 28th vs SF and 25th vs PF. Price is down and now is the time to play him.
Mario Hezonja-playing the minutes and price is still reasonable. Good spot vs Hawks and even better one if either Whiteside or Skal sit out.
Al Horford- Nice matchup vs the Hornets. Averaging 36.5 FPS a game. IF you dont play Embiid consider Horford.
Julius Randle– Robinson is still out. Solid matchup and should have himself a good game tonight.
Chris Boucher– Ibaka is out and Boucher will pick up min minutes. 3.2K and averaging 1.4 fppm in limited time.
Taj Gibson– could get the start again with Robinson out. Put up 25 FPS in 28 minutes last game.
De’Andre Hunter– value play in a good spot tonight.
C (I will be stacking 2 of these 3 Centers on DK in all my lineups tonight)
Joel Embiid- underpriced and in an elite spot vs the Hornets(rank last vs opposing Centers).
Aaron Baynes– Baynes playing well on his new team averaging 25 minutes and 30 FPs. Elite spot vs the Nets as they rank 28th vs opposing Centers. See him getting over looked and he has 8x upside.
Norlens Noel– Adams out. Pace up spot and excellent DvP matchup. Highest value projection on my model tonight.
