Top-Tier Targets 

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,700 DK, $12,500 FD): Top play on the slate. 

Marc Gasol ($8100 DK, $8400 FD): Brooklyn is physically unable to guard big-men.

Damian Lillard ($8600 DK, $8800 FD): The 4thquarter of games in Portland is referred to as “Dame-Time”.

Other options to consider:

Karl Towns, Paul George 

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Hassan Whiteside ($6800 DK, $7000 FD): Approaching his full-health again.

Jaren Jackson Jr ($5600 DK, $6300 FD): Had his best game of the season the last time a matchup with the Nets was in the cards. 

Other options to consider:

Cheap Punt Plays:

Josh Okogie ($3900 DK, $3800 FD): Should be an excellent bounce-back candidate as long as Covington, Rose, and Teague all miss out tonight.
