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:

Damian Lillard ($10,100 DK, $10,900 FD): Last game against the Bulls was a tough one from a DFS perspective as there was clearly no one on the court who could stop Lillard, however the Bulls never really stood a chance at keeping the game close which led to Damian not needing to play his usual allotment of minutes. This should not be the case tonight in a very exciting game down in Atlanta. 

Trae Young ($8300 DK, $8700 FD): Trae Young has been doing everything in his power to challenge Luka Doncic for Rookie of the Year based on his torrid second half of the season. Unfortunately for him, Doncic will still take the honor however as the season winds to a close the Hawk’s games are my favorite to stack in GPPs. 

Other options to consider:
Russell Westbrook, Karl-Anthony Towns,

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Steven Adams ($5500 DK, $6500 FD): Coming off of a 50-point explosion a couple nights ago on DK, Adams is still way too cheap in a matchup where his size will be needed to guard Nikola Jokic down on the block. Safer for Cash than GPP. 

Al-Farouq Aminu ($4700 DK, $5500 FD): Aminu suffered from the same blowout-problems thst our friend Damian Lillard suffered from in Chicago. They were both on their way to very productive nights, only to have their work cut short by the excellent play of the Blazer bench. In a plus-matchup tonight look for Aminu to go for 6X value on DK. 

Other options to consider:
Dario Saric, Tyus Jones

Cheap Punt Plays:

DeAndre’ Bembry ($3900 DK, $4200 FD): Prince is doubtful for tonight and Bembry should slide right into his starting 3 role. He averages 30 minutes, 9 ppg, 4rpg, and 3 assists per game as a starter in 9 games this season.

Dwayne Bacon ($4300 DK, $4700 FD): We need to wait on the status of Batum, however Bacon has been playing around 35 minutes a game in his absence and has been averaging about 18ppg, 4rpg, and 2 assists per game as well as a few steals and blocks. Needless to say he is worth the play as long as Nico is still out. 

Other options to consider:
Marvin Williams, Kevin Huerter
