FanDuel Core 4 Plays
Marcus Smart ( SG ) $5,400 DET@BOS
With Kyrie Irving (Out)and Terry Rozier (Doubtful) tonight I'm looking to Marcus Smart to run the offense tonight. He has plenty of help to open up the floor with Horford, Morris and Tatum in the mix, I project Marcus having a big assist game with plenty of real points. He should be a core member of your lineups tonight as DET is ranked in the bottom half of the league vs SG on the season.
Karl-Anthony Towns ( C ) $10,900 HOU@MIN
Well the KAT is out of the bag! Or at least he's about to be. Towns has DOMINATED the Rockets in his career vs them. In 12 games he averages over 53 fantasy points vs the team. That's an AVERAGE of over 53. His highest game is 69.9 fantasy points and can definitely even exceed those points tonight but even a floor game in this position will be safe for cash. With a 27.7% usage and the spread being at -4 he's in line for a monster game. Lock him in on all formats.
Jamal Murray ( PG ) $7,000 SAC@DEN
The last time these two teams met Jamal Murray put up 52.4 fantasy point with a stat line of 36 points 7 rebounds 6 assists and 1 steal was nothing short of stellar. He has full potential to do so again but even if he didn't reach that he would be exceeding value tremendously at his generous $7,000 price tag. At 25.5% usage and facing a team that is in the bottom 5 ranking vs Point Guards this season Murray is a full lock in all line ups.
Larry Nance Jr ( PF ) $7,600 BKN@CLE
Larry is finally back to life and getting the minutes he deserves. In his last 6 games he is averaging just under 40 fantasy points. At that rate he has already exceeded value tonight. Lol
He has a great matchup vs the nets who struggle vs bigs and are ranked 29th vs PF on the last week. That's 29 out of 30… thats baaaaaaaaaaaad. With Kevin Love out and Tristan Thompson sidelined for a bit he should get plenty of opportunity to crush tonight!
Good luck tonight!
