With the NBA in particular the longer you wait and the closer to lock your game theory is, the more accurate and powerful the analysis will be. With late-swap back in the picture, some of the best lineup decisions you will ever make can happen with mere minutes before lock.

Top-Tier Targets:

Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,700 DK, $11,800 FD): Towns is on another level at the moment. He is my top overall play on the slate with an extremely soft matchup against the Clippers and is coming off of a confidence-building 35.6 usage rate in a much tougher matchup vs. the Grizzlies. 

Luka Doncic ($8500 DK, $9500 FD): Luka was on his way to an absurd triple-double stat-line against the Curry-less Warriors over the weekend, however he was interrupted by a blowout. Tonight is another up-tempo, youthful matchup with the exciting Kings. As long as he is healthy, plug him in GPP. 

Other options to consider:
James Harden, Trae Young

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Thomas Bryant ($5200 DK, $6000 FD): Ariza is still looking likely to miss this one, and Bryant is averaging over 35 minutes a night in his stead. Bryant will be one of the most popular Cash-game plays of the night. 

Kenrich Williams ($4200 DK, $5000 FD): High-scoring, plus matchup with the exciting Hawks. Look for 250 total points to be scored in this one, and the stats need to go somewhere as AD will only play 20 minutes. More ideal for GPP. 

Other options to consider:
Troy Brown Jr, Frank Jackson, Shaq Harrison

Cheap Punt Plays:

Stanley Johnson ($3500 DK, $4000 FD): They went out and traded for Stanley right before the deadline, and they are going to give him minutes down the stretch to see if he is worth keeping in their plans for next season and beyond. At 3500 going against a scrubby Hawks bench, I like Stanley’s upside in GPP. 

Justin Jackson ($3800 DK, $4300 FD): Jackson played 32 minutes in the same matchup two games ago and look for him to exact similar revenge tonight (19-5) against his old team.

Other options to consider:
Antonio Blakeney, Willy Hernangomez, Ryan Arcidacono
