We are rolling along currently in the NBA Daily game and both my value plays and my studs are hitting value the way I need. Damian Lillard, Devin Booker and Wayne Ellington all crushed value while Alex Len has enjoyed the extra playing time due to an injury that has netted him more playing time which has in turn yielded a bunch of fantasy points. Tonight’s slate is as juicy as any since the break and I’m ready to take advantage… Remember there’s going to be some chalky picks tonight, so we have to try to set ourselves apart while also embracing that the field thinks the way we do. It’s go time?
PG – Cory Joseph at ATL $5100
Here’s what I like about Joseph. His price tag is perfect for roster construction, his matchup against a filthily bad Atlanta Hawks team is tantalizing and his minutes of late have been great. He’s averaged 30 minutes per game in his last six games and has had some monster games including against Atlanta just two games ago. He needs 25.5 points to hit value and I think he does it.
SG – Lou Williams vs HOU $7700
Sweet Lou has been the beacon of consistency this season. It’s been quite impressive really, and if you haven’t taken notice yet, you need to. The narrative is so good too. Williams gets to play against the team that traded him for Chris Paul, and I believe a small chip rests firmly on his shoulders. He scored 50 fantasy points in his last meeting with Houston, so I like his chances of hitting value again tonight. I wonder how many people will be on board with the “narrative” thing.
SF – Jonathon Simmons vs TOR $5100
In my least sexy pick of the week, Simmons plays for the Magic — while also drawing a horrible matchup against the Raptors. I’m guessing he goes off in this one at home against a team that is dynamic offensively but average defensively. Simmons is at home, having come off a monster against OKC. The points aren’t always there, but the minutes are, so let’s hope this translates.
PF – Anthony Davis at SA $12500
AD has been an absolute beast this season, and I wish he played for a contender. In the meantime, Davis who needs no introduction will have to settle for helping people like me dominate DFS lineups. There is no real concern here – he’s not getting 90+ points like he did against Phoenix, Miami, or Brooklyn but if he can get me 65 points I’ll be great. Fear the Brow
C – Marc Gasol vs PHO $7200
Gasol goes off in this one, so get him in there, and expect high ownership. Gasol has a plus matchup against the Suns who have no legit big to matchup with Gasol. This is all you really need to know. Gasol has great matchup and plays at home where his points per game hover round 30. His plus matchup tells me this average is going to have trended up late on tonight.
Good Luck Gamers.
