Top-Tier Targets

Andre Drummond ($9700 DK, $10,800 FD): Gets a bump in rebounding rate + usage when Griffin is off the court. Check back to see if Blake plays, if not then fire up Andre in Cash and GPP both as he will be relied upon to cover Turner and carry the Pistons. 

Ben Simmons ($9500 DK, $9800 FD): Embiid is still out as the Sixers medical staff claims “load-management”, Simmons experiences a bump in usage + scoring burden when Embiid is out, and the Hawks have been a dream-DFS matchup for the second-half of the season. 

Other options to consider:

James Harden, Damian Lillard

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Tomas Satoransky ($5900 DK, $6500 FD): The Bulls have effectively shut down any of their talented players for the rest of this season in order to properly tank, as well as to play it safe as the Bulls have had nothing left to play for this season for quite a while. Look for Tomas to capitalize on the weak-defending as the Wizards season dwindles to a close. 

Tyler Dorsey ($4800 DK, $4300 FD): Conley is doubtful, which should lead to Delon Wright and Dorsey controlling the offense. Valanciunas is also out and there is an absurd amount of usage up for grabs in Memphis tonight. 

Other options to consider:

Richaun Holmes, Troy Brown Jr

Cheap Punt Plays:

Aaron Holiday ($3700 DK, $3700 FD): Collison and Matthews were both scratched last game, leading to extra value for Tyreke and Joseph immediately, as well as Holiday off the bench. I’d imagine a similar situation tonight, and Holiday makes for a good GPP pivot off of Tyreke. 

Deyonta Davis ($3200 DK, $3500 FD): Value-galore in Memphis tonight as both Conley and Valunciunas are set to miss out, while Noah is also questionable. If Noah is also ruled out, fire up Davis and go the Stars-N-Scrubs route in GPP. 

Other options to consider:

Malik Monk, Devonte’ Graham
