Month: February 2017

Cash Plays

 John Wall ($10,000) – John Wall has been one of the most fun players to watch over the last month. He hasn’t scored under 40 fantasy points for the entire month of February, and I don’t see that streak ending tonight when the Wizards takes on the Golden State Warriors at home. The Warriors are halfway decent at defending the point, but I really like Wall tonight considering he will be heavily leaned on to try and keep the game close.

 Bradley Beal ($7,000) – Bradley Beal has been nothing but consistent lately, posting 6 games of 20+ points in his over his last 7. As previously stated, a matchup against the Warriors is going to require the Wizards to rely heavily on their backcourt scoring duo. Beal should be on his way to a great game tonight and should score in the mid 30s for fantasy points to give you some consistency in your cash game lineup.

T.J. Warren ($5,300) – Warren had a great start to the season, averaging 19 points a night for the Suns. Unfortunately, he suffered a concussion that put him out of action for 18 games, a stretch in which P.J. Tucker stepped up for Phoenix. Rather than let the two battle for minutes, the Suns decided to ship Tucker to Toronto, opening up more minutes for Warren. He saw 38+ minutes of action in the 2 games without Tucker and I fully expect this trend to continue as Phoenix tries to develop their young talent. I expect Warren’s price to go up soon, so take advantage of it being this low while you can.

Frank Kaminsky ($5,900) – Kaminsky is our pick of the day tonight for his matchup against the Lakers at Staples Center. The Lakers are a team that greatly struggles defensively. Over their last 10 games, Los Angeles is last in the league defending the center position, giving up an average of 56.3 combined fantasy points a night. This fact alone is going to make Kaminsky very owned. Make sure to keep an eye on Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams injury news, as both are questionable to play tonight. If one or both of them can’t go, Kaminsky will get a ton of usage, making him a must play.

Andre Drummond ($8,100) – Drummond may seem like a nuisance to reach up for at center, but his matchup tonight against the Trail Blazers doesn’t get much better. The recent addition of Jusuf Nurkic could help them a bit tonight as he battles with Drummond inside, but the fact of the matter is, Portland is still an awful rebounding team, and that is Drummond’s specialty. I fully expect Drummond to reach his price tag tonight and offer huge upside as he flirts with a big double-double.

 

GPP Plays

 Mike Conley ($8,000) – Tonight Mike Conley draws a fantastic matchup against the Suns, a team that has been near the bottom of the league all season when it comes to defending the point. Conley was able to explode for 38 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds, and 60+ fantasy points in a matchup earlier this year against the suns. Tonight I expect Fanduel players to go for more of the big name plays at PG, leaving a middle of the road players like Conley with a low own % and a great fit in your tournament lineup.

 Rodney Hood ($4,100) – Hood returned to Utah’s starting lineup on Friday and saw 21 minutes of action, which was followed by 27 minutes on Sunday. He didn’t do anything spectacular as he was being eased back into things coming off an injury, but he was able to put up 21 fantasy points and reach value against the Wizards. Tonight, he should she over 30+ minutes of action. For his price point he’s worth taking the risk on and plugging into your GPP lineup.

Maurice Harkless ($4,800) – Harkless was a good cash game play on Sunday with a limited selection of small forwards. Tonight, however, there are guys like Durant, Butler, and Porter to take the attention away from young Moe Harkless, who still has been getting a lot of minutes with Evan Turner out. He should see minutes in the mid-30’s tonight against Detroit and should definitely reach value with decent upside in tournaments.

Tobias Harris ($5,400) – Harris’s inconsistency makes him the ideal tournament play on a day-to-day basis. Over his last 2 he has put up 39 and 16 fantasy points, respectively. This is nothing out of the norm for the young 24 year old, especially since Stan Van Gundy fluctuates his minutes every game. Just like Drummond, though, Harris draws a fantastic matchup against a Portland team that just not defend the frontcourt positions very well. Harris is a very “out on a limb” type play, but he will have the low own % that can help your GPP lineup have success tonight.

Alan Williams ($5,000) – This one completely relies on whether or not Earl Watson actually wants to develop a young talent that he’s been kicking to the curb all season. In the 4 games Williams has seen 20+ minutes he’s averaging 15 points and 13 rebounds a game. On Sunday, when the Suns took on Milwaukee, Williams put up 17 points, 15 rebounds, and 3 assists over 34 minutes for a ridiculous 45.5 fantasy points. Tonight he gets to matchup against a Grizzlies team that defends the center position exceptionally well. This makes me like Williams even more in tournament games, though, as he has proven he can compete with the big boys and will have low ownership.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DeRozan didn’t disappoint last night as he exceeded over 5x his value. The pick of the day has reached 5x value or more everyday since the all-star break. Lets keep it going here for tonight with today’s pick, Frank Kaminsky on the Charlotte Hornets. Frank has developed into a fine big man in his 2nd NBA season. With the departures of Spencer Hawes and Roy Hibbert, Kaminsky has received heavy opportunity, usage, and trust from the Hornets organization and has failed to disappoint so far. He draws a great matchup tonight against the Lakers at the Staples Center who are just terrible as a team right now, especially defensively. I was surprised to see Frank’s price tag still under 6K on FanDuel today. Frank’s recent production makes him more of a guy who should be priced closer to 7K. He needs about 30 fantasy points tonight to reach value where I see him accomplishing that without a problem. He’s the Hornets go-to big man now and will be on the floor for a big portion of this game. Lock him in at Power Forward.

The pick of the day has done nothing but exceed 5x value since the all star break. Lets keep that rolling for tonight. Tonight I’m going with DeRozan of the Toranto Raptors. He draws a fantastic matchup against a weak Knicks D and will continue to see a ton of usage with Lowry still out. I suggest pairing DeRozan with Joseph tonight 100% for cash games. DeRozan shouldn’t have any issues getting in the 40’s for fantasy points. Don’t be surprised if he gets up to 50 with the Raptors needing his offense on the road.

Cash Plays

Cory Joseph ($4,400) – Joseph once again did not disappoint last night as he got the spot start for the injured Kyle Lowry. With Lowry set to have wrist surgery tomorrow, the sky is the limit for young Cory Joseph. In his last 2 games starting he has seen 30+ minutes and put up at least 25 fantasy points in both. The Knicks are pretty good when it comes to defending the point, but given the current situation with Lowry and Joseph’s low price tag he is a must start tonight in cash games.

Demar DeRozan ($8,500) – Kyle Lowry has officially been ruled out tonight as the Raptors take on the Knicks in Madison Square Garden. New York is in the bottom 6 this year defending the SG position and when DeRozan got the chance to face off with them earlier this year in Toronto he put up 34 fantasy points through only 3 quarters of action. If the Knicks can keep this one close, DeRozan could be in for a huge game. At the very least, he should reach value for your lineup

Andrew Wiggins ($8,600) – Wiggins has stepped up big with Zach LaVine out and has arguably been the most consistent player in the league over the last month, averaging 29 points a game to go along with 4 rebounds. In terms of fantasy, he has put up 9 straight games of 30+ fantasy points. Tonight he gets to matchup against a Kings team that has been struggling to defend the SF position recently as they try to figure out life without DeMarcus Cousins. Expect Wiggins to continue his hot stretch of February when he takes the court tonight.

Dario Saric ($7,000) – Fanduel finally caught up with Saric’s price tag, raising it to $7,000 for tonight’s tilt against the Warriors. The raise in price shouldn’t be enough to draw you away from the young power forward, though, as he has put up at least 34 fantasy points in each of his last 6 games. Philadelphia against Golden State obviously has blowout potential, but the Sixers will rely heavily on Saric to try and keep the game close. The Warriors are actually not superb when it comes to defending the power forward position so Saric should easily reach value and hit in the mid-30s for your lineup.

Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,600) – I apologize for adding another high-priced cash game play, but I can’t pass up writing on KAT tonight as he squares off with a Sacramento team that has absolutely no one to compete with him. The size difference he has on Willie Cauley-Stein and clear advantage against Kosta Koufos tell me Towns is in for a big game. The man has been on an absolute tear of late, posting 40+ fantasy points in 13 of his last 14 games. It may be a little difficult to squeeze him into your lineup, but if you can, definitely reach up for KAT.

 

GPP Plays

Derrick Rose ($6,100) – Derrick Rose was our GPP point guard on Saturday and had a decent game against the 76ers. Tonight, he faces a Toronto team that will be without Kyle Lowry and have been struggling to defend the point guard position lately, as they are near the bottom of the league over their last 10 games. Also keep in mind that the Knicks waived Brandon Jennings early Monday morning, opening up more minutes for Derrick Rose. He usually sees minutes in the mid-30s but he may even see upwards of 40 tonight as New York attempts to figure out their backcourt.

Tim Hardaway Jr. ($5,500) – Hardaway Jr. has had a rough couple of games since the all-star break. This is great news for your tournament lineup as his price continues to drop and people steer clear of him. If Avery Bradley comes back tonight he could give Hardaway some trouble, adding to his risk. If Bradley does not return, however, expect Hardaway to have his way with a Celtics defense that is in the bottom 3 in the league defending the SG position over their last 5 games. He should have no trouble reaching value for your GPP lineup tonight and offers great upside.

Harrison Barnes ($6,100) – With a lot of big name small forwards taking the floor tonight, most will probably go with one of them and a value play to compliment it. This leaves middle-priced guys like Harrison Barnes with low ownership. Considering Barnes is the Mavericks #1 option, he should have no problem scoring tonight against a Miami defense that allows the 6th most points per game to opposing teams.

James Johnson ($6,100) – Johnson has been a little inconsistent as of late, posting 2 games with less than 20 fantasy points over his last 3. Tonight, he faces off with a tough Dallas frontcourt that just recently acquired Nerlens Noel. Johnson may have his work cut out for him but he his low ownership tonight will make him a great tournament play.

Al Horford ($6,100) – Horford’s lack of production has finally caught up to him on Fanduel as he is now listed at only $6,100. He hasn’t shown anything of late to suggest he can put up huge numbers, but a revenge game may be in order for him as he gets to take on his former team, the Atlanta Hawks. If you’re looking for a risky, middle-priced center for your GPP lineup I highly recommend plugging Horford in.

Cash Plays

Cory Joseph ($4,200) – Kyle Lowry is technically considered a game time decision tonight, but the team has already announced he is out indefinitely with a sore wrist. That being said, there have been a couple instances in which we’ve seen Joseph get the start when Lowry sits, and he hasn’t disappointed. He filled in nicely against the Celtics on Friday and Fanduel still hasn’t raised his price past $4,200. Joseph will be highly owned and should have no issues reaching value tonight against the Blazers.

Demar DeRozan ($8,600) – Sticking with the Raptors guards, the next player on everyone’s radar should be Demar DeRozan. For the same reason as Joseph, DeRozan should be in just about everyone’s lineups tonight. He gets an insane amount of usage anytime Lowry doesn’t play, and that proved to be true against Boston when he dropped 53.5 fantasy points. Fanduel did slightly raise his price since Friday night, but the $8,600 price tag shouldn’t be enough to scare anyone away. DeRozan needs around 40 to reach value, and he should have no trouble doing that tonight when he faces off with Portland.

Andre Roberson ($4,500) – Roberson has proven to be more consistent of late, posting 20+ fantasy points in 6 of his last 7 games. On Friday he stepped up against LA with Victor Oladipo out, putting up 30.9 fantasy points. Tonight he gets a decent matchup against a Pelican team that is still figuring things out with new acquisition DeMarcus Cousins. With Oladipo still sidelined tonight, he should easily hit in the low 20’s and reach value for your team.

Anthony Davis ($9,900) – The DeMarcus Cousins trade has done little to halt Davis’s production. In the 2 games with Cousins as a Pelican Davis has still been able to put up 46.3 and 59.8 fantasy points. The most intriguing part, however, is that he is still priced under $10,000 headed into tonight’s matchup with OKC. Steven Adams should be occupied covering Boogie, leaving guys like Taj Gibson, Domantas Sabonis, and Enes Kanter to guard Davis, all matchups he should feast on.

Jusuf Nurkic ($5,500) – Portland went and got Nurkic for a reason. With no one physical in their frontcourt, Nurkic can be that tough big down low for them. In his first 2 games with the team he has put up 28.1 and 40.9 fantasy points. He got the start against Orlando on Thursday and played 34 minutes. Tonight, he should draw another start against the Raptors and see over 30 minutes yet again. His price has been raised a bit but he should have no problem getting 25-30 fantasy points and reaching value for your lineup.

 

GPP Plays

George Hill ($6,100) – With most people probably buying up at one of their PG positions to go along with Cory Joseph, many of the middle priced guys will be overlooked. This is great news for guys like George Hill when it comes to GPP games, being that he’s an inconsistent player with some great upside on certain nights. With his own % likely to be low tonight you should definitely consider Hill as one of your tournament point guards. He doesn’t have the easiest matchup going up against John Wall who is a great individual defender, but the Wizards have been struggling as a team lately when it comes to defending the point.

Alex Abrines ($3,600) – Abrines may be fairly owned since news on Oladipo has already been released. But considering no one really thinks of Abrines as being particularly consistent, he’s still a tournament play in my mind. With Oladipo out on Friday Abrines got the start and saw 29 minutes. OKC will be going up against a New Orleans team that typically defends the SG position well, but have been struggling of late as they rank in the bottom 8 in defensive efficiency against the position in their last 10 games.

Otto Porter ($6,300) – The SF position is rather bland this Sunday, leading most people to probably target some value plays in order to buy up for a guy like Westbrook. Because of this, middle-priced guys like Otto Porter can greatly benefit. Porter does not necessarily have a favorable matchup tonight against a defensive minded Jazz team. This, mixed with his low own %, makes him a risky, but good, tournament play.

Nikola Jokic ($9,800) – If you’re looking for a risky GPP play tonight, look no further than Nikola Jokic. His last 2 games have lowered his price to a reasonable $9,800, but in both of those games he posted 18 fantasy points, which isn’t exactly great numbers for a guy who is priced as a superstar. Tonight he matches up against a Grizzlies team that is generally great at defending the power forward and center positions, something that will more than likely draw people away from his name, making him a great GPP option.

Steven Adams ($6,300) –Adams made it into my GPP picks 2 nights ago against a bad Laker defense. Tonight, he gets a little tougher of a matchup against Boogie Cousins and the New Orleans Pelicans. Adams is a consistent guy who will generally get you 25 fantasy points a game (he has 8 straight of at least 25+). But he has shown that he has GPP upside, like on Friday when he put up 43 fantasy points against Los Angeles. Tonight, I think his low ownership is what makes him a great GPP play, as he could easily slide under the radar and help your lineup get to the top.

The Pick of the Day has done nothing but satisfy so far. Another great performance from our player, Iguodola. He easily exceeded the 5x value by scoring in the high 20’s for fantasy points. For tonight’s main slate, our pick of the day is Corey Joseph of the Toronto Raptors. Joseph is a really good player but has been riding in the back seat to all-star PG Kyle Lowry. While Lowry is out “indefinitely” with a wrist issue, the Raptors are going to lean heavily on DeRozan and Joseph. With Joseph’s price tag being at $4,200, it’s an obvious must play here. Joseph should easily be able to get his 5x value with a decent chance to reach up to 10x value. Plug him in and don’t look back.
