Happy to at least be able to get the start of the breakdown up for you guys early enough. Now, of course, things can change as news happens at the drop of the hat in the NBA so we always suggest looking close to lock to get the most up-to-date info but at this point, this is what we like.
Malcolm Brogdon $8300 – A lot of the depth for the Pacers is set to still be out. The Pacers are going against the Blazers who give up the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing PG. Brogdon has been very consistent this season and the good thing with him is he gives you a little bit of everything averaging 22.5 PPG, 4.1 rebounds, and 7.5 assists. Brogdon has a usage rate of 24.1 which we expect to be a little bit higher this game with the trade that happened the other night and the fact that those players are still not likely to play. On top of all this, his opponent Portland has the sixth-fastest pace of play this season in the NBA which could lead him to get a few more touches as well. Outside of Brogdon a few other players that we are looking at are Lamelo Ball at 7.6k though we more so like him for GPP since he still comes off the bench his price is a little too high for our liking in cash. We also like Devonte Graham at 6k as well as Aaron Holiday at 4.5k
Ben Mclemore $3400 – One of the hardest things to do in NBA DFS is finding that value that will hit and give you enough points. For this slate, we feel that Mclemore has a great chance to be that play. At only 3.4k he only has to score about 20pts to get 6x which is generally what you look for. Mclemore is set to start at PG for the Rockets tonight. The Rockets like the Pacers due to the trades that were done that other day are very shallow when it comes to the depth department. The Rockets are playing the Spurs who give up the sixth-most points to opposing PG. We believe Mclemore is just too cheap not to play if he is the starting PG for the Rockets tonight. So far in his three games played Mclemore has averaged a little over 1 fantasy point per minute so we think he is a great play this slate in this spot. If you do wanna go a different route a few of the other guys we like are Andrew Wiggins at 6.8k as well as Lonnie Walker at 5.6k
