Chris Paul ($10,200 FD, $9,800 DK)- Paul has been lights out since his return from injury and so have the Rockets, who remain unbeaten in games Paul has played in. Look for him to continue his dominate ways in a cake matchup against the Lakers.
Kris Dunn ($7,900 FD, $7,200 DK)- Dunn has been a pleasant surprise and he’s consistently producing this year. He gets the Magic tonight, a team who has been just as consistent giving up big games to point guards.
Isaiah Canaan ($4,100 FD, $4,500 DK)- It’s Isaiah Canaan’s turn to try and be the Suns’ point guard and he’s taken full advantage. Over his past two games he’s averaged 26 minutes and has produced a couple of very nice fantasy lines.
James Harden ($11,100 FD/DK) – With a floor of 40 fantasy points and with the potential of going off for 60 or 70 fantasy points any night, Harden is always a good option but especially tonight against the Lakers.
Victor Oladipo ($9,600 FD, $9,200 DK) – Another surprise this year has been Oladipo, who has been a monster so far. Look for him to keep it rolling against the Hawks tonight.
Lou Williams ($7,700 FD, $7,600 DK) – Williams is listed probably tonight so keep an eye out for any news but if he plays, Williams is one of my favorite options tonight against a very poor defensive Phoenix Suns team.
Kevin Durant ($11,900 FD, $11,600 DK) – Durant is putting up insane numbers since Curry went down and there’s no way that will stop tonight even against a tough defensive team in the Grizzlies.
Jimmy Butler ($9,400 FD)- Another player who has been on fire is Jimmy Butler, who really has stepped up his game since his slow start. Tonight Butler gets a pace-up game against the Nuggets.
Josh Richardson ($5,800 FD, $5,900 DK) – Richardson has been great the past three games and looks like the Richardson we expected to get this year. Richardson has a tough matchup tonight but remains cheap enough where he is worth the risk.
LaMarcus Aldridge ($7,900 FD/DK)- Aldridge get his former team tonight so you know he’ll be looking to produce. Kawhi Leonard has already been ruled so Aldridge should be offensive centerpiece the whole time he’s on the floor.
Lauri Markkanen ($5,900 FD, $5,100) – While Mirotic is also a good play tonight I think Markkenen’s price has come down enough for he makes for a safe play at a good price. Markkanen is pretty consistent and should be good for at least 25 fantasy points tonight.
Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,300 FD, $9,000 DK)- Before his last game Towns was on an impressive roll, going 5 straight games over 50 fantasy points. Tonight he gets the Nuggets and should approach similar numbers.
Nikola Vucevic ($10,300 FD, $9,400 DK)- With so many injuries to the Magic’s core players, Vucevic has stepped up and taken control of the offense. Tonight he should be able to feast on the Bulls and put up big numbers.
Alex Len ($5,700, $5,600) – Len has put up impressive numbers his last three games despite playing less than 30 minutes in each of them. Who’s going to get how many minutes for the Suns at center is always a mystery but is they ride the hot hand that Len has tonight, you’ll be in for quite a bargain.
