Damian Lillard ($9,000 FD, $8,800 DK)- Lillard has dropped 50 and 39 points in back to back games and tonight he gets the Warriors tonight at home which sets up nicely for him.
Isaiah Thomas ($6,700 FD, $5,800 DK)- Thomas played 30 minutes in his debut against the Mavericks and scored 22 points with six assists. Tonight he gets a great matchup against the Pelicans who have struggled guarding point guards all year.
Emmanuel Mudiay ($4,300 FD, $4,500 DK)- Mudiay will play in his first home game as a Knick tonight against the Wizards and I think he makes for an excellent cheap play. There is some risk attached to him as he played only 19 minutes in his last game after playing 29 in his first game as a Knick. Assuming he’s closer to the latter than the former, he should be able to hit value.
Victor Oladipo ($10,200 FD, $9,600 DK) – Oladipo went off in his last game for 30 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists and 6 steals. While it may be a little too much to ask for another performance like that from Oladipo tonight, he’s set up nicely in his matchup with the Nets.
Bradley Beal ($8,700 FD, $8,900 DK) – Beal has been great since Wall’s injury and tonight he may have even more playmaking duties heaped on him as Tim Frazier has already been ruled out and Tomas Satoransky is questionable. Regardless if Satoransky plays or not, I think Beal makes for a great play tonight.
Donovan Mitchell ($8,500 FD, $7,900 DK) – Ricky Rubio is out again tonight which makes Mitchell the main playmaker again, a role he’s excelled in since Rubio went down. The Suns have been blown out quite a bit throughout the year which is the only risk attached to Mitchell tonight.
Michael Beasley ($6,800 FD, $6,900 DK) – Beasley looks like he’ll be the main scoring option for the Knicks without Porzingis as he’s gone over 30 fantasy points in three straight games. Look for that to continue tonight against the Wizards at home.
Mario Hezonja ($6,200 FD, $5,900 DK)- Aaron Gordon’s injury opened the door for Hezonja for more playing time and Hezonja has taken full advantage of it. Hezonja has a nice run going and gets the Hornets tonight who shouldn’t be able to slow him down.
Royce O’Neale ($4,300 FD/DK) – It’s easy to see why Rodney Hood was expendable when you watch O’Neale play. O’Neale has flourished with added minutes and his price remains very affordable. Tonight he faces the Suns tonight in a game where he should be able to reach value easily.
Blake Griffin ($9,000 FD/DK) – Griffin has been solid with his new team and tonight he faces a shorthanded Hawks team in a game in which he may just break out for a monster performance.
Ben Simmons ($8,900 FD, $8,000 DK)- Maybe Simmons needed the All-Star snub(s) to break out of his funk as he’s been playing some of the best basketball of his rookie year over the last couple of weeks. Look for Simmons to keep it rolling against the Heat tonight.
Kyle Kuzma ($6,900 FD, $5,400 DK) – Larry Nance’s trade has given Kuzma a boost as he’s hovered close to the 40 point fantasy mark the past two games. The Lakers and Pelicans matchup should be an up and down affair which helps Kuzma’s outlook.
Anthony Davis ($11,800 FD, $11,600 DK)- Davis gets a great matchup tonight against the Lakers who have given up some monster lines to centers this year. To me, Davis has the highest ceiling of any player tonight.
Rudy Gobert ($7,900, $7,600) – Gobert’s return has given a boost to the Jazz who have now won 10 straight. Gobert gets the Suns tonight in a matchup he should be able to feast on.
Emeka Okafor ($3,600 FD, $3,400 DK)- Okafor scored 8 points and pulled down 7 boards in his first start last game. If hestarts again and if you need a cheap play at center, Okafor is your guy.
