Kemba Walker ($9,700 FD, $9,300 DK) – Kemba Walker looks primed to have a career year as he gets ready to hit free agency in the summer. Tonight he matches up with the Hawks who struggle to contain point guards.
Spencer Dinwiddie ($6,500 FD, $6,200 DK) – Dinwiddie has stepped up nicely since Caris LeVert went down with his injury and tonight he gets the Jazz, who are nowhere the same defensive unit they were last year. Look for him to hit value tonight.
Other good buys: John Wall ($9,300 FD, $9,100 DK), Ryan Arcidiacono ($4,200 FD, $3,900 DK).
James Harden ($11,600 FD, $11,600 DK) – If Chris Paul is ruled out again, Harden becomes a better play then he already is. Last time out Harden dropped 54 points against the Wizards and faces off against the Mavericks tonight in a soft matchup.
Jeremy Lamb ($6,600 FD, $6,400 DK) – Lamb has played really well lately and grabbed six or more rebounds in his last eight games. He has an easy matchup against the Hawks tonight so he makes for a great play tonight at his price.
Other good buys: Devin Booker ($8,800 FD, DK), Bradley Beal ($8,200 FD, $8,000 DK).
T.J. Warren ($6,600 FD, $6,500 DK) – Warren’s price has come down a bit since I last spoke about him here which may be due to his ejection cutting his night short against Detroit. However he had a bounce-back game last night and continues to play well so I think he makes for a great play against the Clippers.
Jonathan Isaac ($4,700 FD, $3,700 DK) – Isaac got extended minutes against the Warriors his last time out as Aaron Gordon was forced out early. If Gordon is ruled out later tonight, Isaac becomes a great play at his cheap price.
Other good buys: Jabari Parker ($7,400 FD, $6,600 DK), Otto Porter ($6,600 FD, $5,900 DK).
Anthony Davis ($12,500, $11,400) – There are a few studs on tonight’s slate but I think Davis is the one to go with. The Pelicans played the Wizards a few nights ago and it turned out to be a high-scoring affair. AD missed that game but is a go for tonight in a matchup where he should be able to rack up fantasy points.
Noah Vonleh ($6,700 FD, $5,700 DK) – Vonleh has put up a couple of big games since his insertion into the starting lineup. Tonight he gets the Sixers who like to push the pace so he’ll have plenty of opportunities to put up fantasy points.
Other good buys: Markieff Morris ($6,500 FD, $5,1000 DK), P.J. Tucker ($4,300 FD, $4,400 DK).
Nikola Vucevic ($9,500 FD, $8,300 DK) – Vucevic has been putting up some big numbers lately and will look to stay hot against the Blazers tonight. Adding to Vucevic’s appeal is the possibility of Gordon missing tonight’s game.
Tristan Thompson ($7,100, $6,300) – Thompson has played great since Love went down and his price has skyrocketed. His offensive rebounding ability adds to his value as it often leads to an easy put-back. Thompson has a touch matchup against Steven Adams tonight but he’s worth it at this price.
Other good buys: Rudy Gobert ($8,500 FD, $7,700 DK), Steven Adams ($7,400 FD, $6,700).
November 18, 2019, 12:16 amKyle KuzmaPF, Los Angeles Lakers
Kyle Kuzma dropped 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.
Kuzma is back into the swing of things and should cruise to late-round value. He added five rebounds, three triples and one block to the stat sheet.
November 18, 2019, 12:13 amLeBron JamesSF, Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James double-doubled in a 122-101 win against the Hawks on Sunday as he put up 33 points and 12 assists.
James shot 13-of-21 from the field and 6-of-10 from beyond the arc. He also grabbed seven boards and added one steal and one block to the box score. James' co-star Anthony Davis had an off night with 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with five assists and five blocks. Both guys are locks for top-15 value.
November 18, 2019, 12:10 amRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo played well on Sunday as he put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a blowout win over the Hawks.
Rondo played 24 minutes, which is a season-high. He knocked down two 3-pointers and added three assists to the stat sheet. Alex Caruso played 21 minutes and had 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Rondo will likely be the preferred option of the two when his minutes restriction is lifted, but neither guy is worth owning in standard formats.
November 18, 2019, 12:06 amKentavious Caldwell-PopeSG, Los Angeles Lakers
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started for Avery Bradley (leg) and put up 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.
KCP played just 21 minutes as the majority of this game was out of reach. Danny Green chipped in 11 points with seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 4-of-7 shooting. Green provides late-round value and is worth owning in most formats, while KCP is a streaming option while Bradley is out.
November 18, 2019, 12:02 amTrae YoungPG, Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young scored 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting in 39 minutes of action in a 122-101 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Young turned the ball over eight times and shot just 2-of-8 from beyond the arc. He dished out seven assists and grabbed two steals as well. Young is going to produce top-20/30 value this season in 8/9-cat formats.
November 17, 2019, 11:59 pmJabari ParkerPF, Atlanta Hawks
Jabari Parker put up 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting with four steals in a blowout loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Parker has played well as of late, but this was not his best performance. He added eight rebounds, one assist and one block to the box score. Cam Reddish chipped in 11 points with three steals on 5-of-13 shooting. Reddish is still figuring out how his game translates to the NBA and can be left on the waiver wire. However, Parker should be owned in all formats.
November 17, 2019, 11:56 pmChandler ParsonsSF, Atlanta Hawks
Chandler Parsons played two minutes against the Lakers on Sunday and did not record a stat.
Parsons managed to have a plus/minus of minus-10 in just two minutes of action. He will not have much of a role with the Hawks this season regardless of injuries.
November 17, 2019, 10:05 pmEric PaschallPF, Golden State Warriors
Eric Paschall took control of the Warriors' offense on Sunday vs. the Pelicans, contributing 30 points (10-of-17 FG, 8-of-10 FT), seven rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Paschall was cooking in this one, and he has now scored 15 or more points in six out of his last eight games. D'Angelo Russell will be out for a couple weeks at minimum, and Paschall faces few challenges for touches from the remaining healthy bodies. He is not going to deliver many hustle stats or assists, but he has an excellent runway to pile up efficient points and steady rebounding figures to create mid-round value.
November 17, 2019, 9:58 pmDraymond GreenPF, Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green struggled from the field (2-of-10 FG) on Sunday, but was able to deliver six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
This is a realistic expectation for what Draymond can deliver alongside the kids left on the Warriors. He is not going to deliver the early-round production many were projecting for this season, but he will still create plenty of hustle stats while going for mid-round value.
November 17, 2019, 9:51 pmE'Twaun MooreSG, New Orleans Pelicans
E'Twaun Moore put up 10 points and seven rebounds in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Moore put up 14,15 and 18 points in his previous three contests, so he cooled off in this one. However, he was limited to just 24 minutes as he had five fouls. Kenrich Williams also had a lackluster performance as he put up five points, 10 rebounds and four assists on 2-of-8 shooting. Williams has provided late-round value over the last two weeks and is a solid streaming option when the Pelicans are missing some key players due to injury. Moore is a deep-league scoring and shooting option, but his value disappears when Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Frank Jackson return to the court.
