Know it has been a few days since we have had some NBA stuff for you but we are back today with a breakdown for you guys. We have a fairly small slate tonight so getting the right players in your lineup is very important if you wanna stand at the top of the boards at the end of the night. These are the guys we suggest to have in your lineup as your core.
Luka Doncic ($10,500)-
Coming off a 71.5 fantasy performance last game, it appears that Luka has gotten back in form after a slow start to the season. Tonight he plays versus the Nuggets who are middle of the pack in guarding the PG position. With a usage rate of 37.9, close game, and a game total of 224.5 Luka is in a perfect spot tonight to have a huge game. We advise paying up for Luka on this slate.
Bruce Brown Jr. ($3,500)-
Last game Brown got the start for the injury-riddled Brooklyn Nets and he did not disappoint, scoring nearly 7x salary. His salary only went up $500 after that performance and he is in line to get the start again tonight, only this game he will have a favorable pace matchup in a game with 2 top 6 pace teams in the league. Save up on salary by taking him and target a few studs on a semi-short slate tonight.
Cedi Osman ($5,700)-
Osman has averaged 35 minutes per game in the past 2 games. In the first of those games he scored 43.75 fantasy points and last game he only got 1 for 12 from the field but still managed to score nearly 5x salary with peripheral stats. We think he is a play that will fly under the radar but is a slam dunk play that should lead you to cashing.
Tobias Harris ($7,500)-
In the past two weeks, Harris has eclipsed 50 fantasy points in 2 games, however, his last two games have been lackluster so this is an opportunity to buy low. In a matchup with the Nets and Durant being out, he should have an advantage in this game and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Sixers try to run the offense through Harris. We think he is a strong GPP play tonight because of his role and upside.
Andre Drummond ($8,400)-
Drummond has had a rough go at things over his past 4 games but that has been a result of him playing Centers that spread the floor and bring Drummond out from the paint. Tonight in a match-up versus Valanciunas he will get to play his style of basketball where he bumps bodies, fights for boards, and uses his grit to score. This is a perfect spot for him and he might be lowered owned than he should be because of his last few games.
