Welcome back for another night of action in the Association. Let’s jump in and take a look at some of my core plays at each position and then make sure to check out all our top plays on the Members-Only DFS NBA cheatsheet available in chat.
CHRIS PAUL – OKC
Chris Paul has been super consistent of late and the match-up with San Antonio is going to get lost in the masses. The Spurs play fast and Dejounte Murray heads a few PG’s that don’t excel defensively. Chris Paul has been extremely consistent of late and it’s fair to expect him around 40 fantasy points once again. His price is too low on both sites and Paul is an easy value play in both cash games and tournaments. The ownership won’t be high and I love the spot.
BUDDY HIELD – SAC
The Grizzlies are a team we’ve been targeting all season long as they play fast and don’t have much defense to speak of. The price on Buddy Hield has inexplicably dropped after posting 30 fantasy points in three straight games. He’s going to shoot the ball 15-20 times here and Hield is going to see ownership under 20%. This 224 over/under deserves attention and I like Hield more than anyone else in this game.
SHABAZZ NAPIER – MIN
Assuming Jeff Teague and Andrew Wiggins are out, Shabazz is a plug and play tonight. He’s been at 34 and 41 fantasy points in each of the last two games and now draws a match-up with a Warriors team that doesn’t play any defense. Contingent upon injury news, Napier is a free square.
ALEC BURKS – GS
Burks put up 28 points and 44 fantasy points with D’Angelo Russell our last game. He’s going to miss this game as well and Burks price still has a lot of moving up to do. The Timberwolves are not a defensive bunch and this is going to be a high-scoring affair from the start. Burks is my favorite forward on the slate and he’s the first name I click when making lineups for tonight.
CHRISTIAN WOOD – DET
Christian Wood is another great source of value tonight. There are going to be a lot of people who get off him after last game and that just makes me want to play him more. The Bulls are an extremely weak defensive team and they rank in the bottom 10 against athletic power forwards. Blake Griffin is considered doubtful for this game and Wood is going to play at least 28+ minutes at a minimum. With a lot of value on this slate, Christian Wood is going to get overlooked and he has a great shot at posting 30 fantasy points.
ANDRE DRUMMOND – DET
I’m a big fan of picking on the Bulls interior tonight. Andre Drummond is my highest projected player on the slate. Drummond is going to play big minutes with Blake Griffin our and we know the Pistons feed Drummond in the circumstances. He’s my favorite player on the slate and there is plenty of value to help you pay up.
