Only 4 games tonight which means the most productive players will be getting the nod tonight. However there are some great values on the board to add. Let’s give them a look.
Be sure to follow @hoopscalldaily on Twitter for lineups and updates. Also be sure to follow @DYST_Now for breaking news and more all around the sports world.
Jameer Nelson will continue to be in my lineups while Emmanuel Mudiay remains sidelined. Priced at a cheap $4200 he is definitely the best value play at PG tonight. Even though Darren Collison is a great option as well. He among many other Kings players will be highly owned and with my lineup, I simply just did not have enough salary remaining.
Patrick Beverley. Beverley is another great value play as he too is priced at only $4200. Sacramento is without starting point guard Rajon Rondo tonight and the Kings aren’t that great at defending guards as it is. Though Beverley isn’t a must play like James Harden, his ceiling is defintely high for tonight’s matchup. Speaking of the beard, Harden has the opportunity to explode tonight. Not a single Kings player will be able to contain him on D, and he is definitely my favorite play this evening.
OJ Mayo. Juice remains the starting PG for the Milwaukee Bucks as Jerryd Bayless and Greivis Vasquez continue to sit with injuries. Mayo is coming off of the upset win over the Warriors a few nights ago and not only him, but the Bucks as a whole have hopefully gained some momentum from it. Against the Lakers defense, I like him among several other Bucks players in tonight’s matchup.
Lebron James. With the king, you are pretty much guaranteed a 40+ fanduel point outing no matter what the matchup. Tonight against the Celtics I could definitely see him reaching at least 50. The Celts are the 6th worst team in the league on defense against opposing SF’s. To say the least, I am definitely expecting a big game from James tonight.
Khris Middleton is a player that may not be heavily owned tonight. Middleton to me is a stud for a pick because he shoots a lot and is matched up against the Lakers. Need I say more?
Jared Sullinger is the Celtics starting Center, and though he’s undersized he’s incredibly capable at moving people around and grabbing rebounds. I have a feeling Timofey Mozgov is going to get bodied by Sullinger tonight in the paint. Don’t let his last performance against the Hornets drive you away.
Joffrey Lauvergne is definitely a gamble tonight. However he’s cheap and has a high ceiling even if matched up against the Timberwolves who have definitely improved defensively this season.
Demarcus Cousins. Boogie is listed under 10k for now and with Rondo out, he becomes an even better pick against the Rockets. With added responsibility on offense, as well as Houston’s weak defense against centers, (especially over the last 5 games) I really like Boogie tonight.
Other good plays:
All of these “other good plays” are great picks tonight. Especially the Kings players. Usually if one Kings starter is out others flourish. Collison, Gay, Casspi, Cousins all worth a look tonight.
