6 game slate. Trying a different type of article/layout. Let me know in SlackChat if this is something you would like to see in the future. I will post a partial lineup for both sites and give options for each position.

Top 2 matchups on the slate:
*Bulls play the Wizards 29th ranked defense in a pace up spot.
*Pelicans play the Warriors 27th ranked defense in what should be a fast paced game.
*Notable Players our today:
Karl-Anthony Towns, Damian Lillard, D’Angelo Russell, Draymond Green
*Questionable Players:

Victor Olidipo, Marquisse Chriss


Building Blocks
Lineup leaves 7K left per player.

Chris Paul– playing well in the month of February. Just dropped 50 FPs on the Spurs earlier this month.
Thomas Satoransky– slight bump to Satoransky over Colby White, but both are in play. Excellent matchup in pace up spot. White on FD.

Anfarnee Simons/Jordan McGlaghlin– similarly priced I give the edge to McGlaghlin. The Wolves will be without Russell tonight, which opens up over 30% usage and the PG position. McGlauglin has averaged a FPPM.


Malik Beasley– over the past ; games Beasley is averaging 23 points, 6 rebounds,  close to 20 shots a game and 10 3-point attempts. This has been with Russell on the court and in a few tougher matchups. Remove Towns and Russell and Beasley becomes the main guy on the Wolves. 🔒

CJ McCollum– no Dame. Biggest usage bump.
Zach LaVine– played well in both games vs the Wizards.

Brandon Ingram-DK
Wil Barton– under priced in both sites. Excellent matchup.
Christian Wood– played well on the year and especially as a starter with increased minutes. Gets an elite matchup vs the Blazers.

Naz Reid/James Johnson– Reid got the start last game and played very well. Averaging 1.3 FPPM. Johnson played well off the bench. They will need size today to combat Jokic, Milsap and Plumlee. Reid a better play on FD.


LaMarcus Aldridge


Juan Tascano-Anderson– cheap option that played well in last game. Excellent matchup.


Hassan Whiteside– No Lillard. Averaging 1.5 FPPM on the year. Gets an additional boost without Lillard. Also, Pistons have been one of the worst teams defending centers over last 30 days.
Mason Plumlee– too cheap for the matchup. Can hit value in 12-14 minutes.
Kevin Looney– if Chriss sits out.
