Dennis Smith Jr. (NY)

FanDuel ($7,000/26.75 FPPG)

DraftKings ($6,000/27.3 FPPG)

In New York’s unexpected win against the Spurs Smith Jr. performed well, draining 47% of his field goals and putting up 19 points, 13 assists, 6 rebounds as well as two steals giving him a double-double. This performance marked the 7th time in 9 games that Smith Jr. has played for the Knicks that he has scored double digit points. Smith Jr. should be seeing big minutes as one of New York’s only major and effective offense weapons, making him a great value pick for fantasy rosters. 

 

Danilo Gallinari (LAC)

FanDuel ($7,300/31.38 FPPG)

DraftKings ($6,300/32.6 FPPG)

In his less than average 23 minutes of playing time in the Clippers victory against the Knicks on Sunday, Gallinari sunk 53.3% of his field goals and 50% of his three pointers giving him 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. He’s put up above 25 fantasy points in his last 7 contests, 4 in which he accrued above 30 FP including a 40.3 FP performance in the Clippers’ win against the Grizzlies 10 days ago. He will probably return to playing more minutes tonight as the Clippers visit the Lakers, giving fantasy players an opportunity for a player with high upside with little risk involved.

 

Buddy Hield (SAC)

FanDuel ($7,600/31.60 FPPG)

DraftKings ($7,000/33.6 FPPG)

With Marvin Bagley III out with a knee injury, Hield will be seeing an increase in his usage tonight as the Kings face the Knicks. In half of Sacramento’s last 4 games, Hield has scored above 30 points, including 32 points in a one point loss to the Bucks and a team-high 34 points in a victory over the Thunder on February 23rd. His fantasy performance has been impressive lately with Hield having scored consistently above 30 fantasy points including a handful of 40 and 50 FP games since January 25th. Fantasy players and Sacramento Kings fans alike will be hoping that Hield can keep up with the extra pressure on him to perform up to par for increased minutes in Bagley’s absence. 

Trail Blazers vs Raptors 

Vegas Favorite – Raptors (-5.0), O/U – 229.5

Players to Watch 

 

Damian Lillard (POR)

FanDuel ($9,400/43.14. FPPG)

DraftKings ($8,400, 44.80 FPPG)

Damian Lillard has had a stellar month and has led the Trail Blazers across most categories. He has averaged 22.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 7.1 assists over the month of February. He has been a great, consistent option for fantasy players and will be a great pick once again tonight as Portland, the number 4 team in the Western Conference take on  Toronto, the number 2 team in the Eastern Conference.

 

Kawhi Leonard (TOR)

FanDuel ($9,500/45.31 FPPG)

DraftKings ($8,800/46.00 FPPG)

While Kawhi has only played 7 out of the 10 games Toronto has played in February, in those games he has put up pretty great numbers averaging 21.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists. Since the Raptors blew out the Celtics 118-95 in their game on Tuesday, Leonard only had to play 21 minutes or he may have put up even better stats. With the two days rest he has had, he should be able to put up great numbers again tonight against Portland.

James Harden (HOU) – ($12,800/56.72 FPPG)

Season Averages – 34.1 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 8.7 APG

James Harden has been playing better than anyone in the league lately. In January alone he has scored above 40 points in three of five games, averaging 39.8 points per game in that same period. Harden has also been putting up great rebound and assist numbers this month with an average 8.2 rebounds and 10.8 assists per game. These numbers have helped Harden achieve two triple-doubles and two double-doubles so far this month. In terms of fantasy points, Harden has been a great asset for fantasy players. In the five games thru January all his performances have been above 50 FP including two 80 FP contests. Tonight he will look to continue his dominance on the court and fantasy players will be watching closely. 

 

Warriors vs Mavericks 

Vegas Favorite – GSW (-6.5), O/U – 227.0

Player to Watch 

Kevin Durant (GSW) – ($10,000/48.34 FPPG)

Season Averages – 28.2 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 6.1 APG

Durant has been an essential part of Golden State’s offense, averaging 25.3 points per game across an average 34.5 minutes this January. Besides his scoring, he has also helped out the team with an average 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game this month. Durant has been consistent with putting up good fantasy points so far in 2019. In all four games he has put up above 39 FP with a high of 53.5 FP. If he continues playing as he has, fantasy players will be wise to add him to their rosters tonight. 

 

Trail Blazers vs Nuggets

Vegas Favorite – DEN (-5.0), O/U – 217.0

Player to Watch

Nikola Jokic (DEN) – ($11,000/46.04 FPPG)

Season Averages – 19.2 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 7.5 APG

Nikola Jokic has had a phenomenal January so far. In the seven games the Nuggets have played in 2019, Jokic has played an average 32.3 minutes per game and put up at least a double-double each game with three triple-doubles as well. Fantasy players who have chosen Jokic for their rosters have been well rewarded with five of seven games scoring above 50 FP and a high of 72.4 FP against the Charlotte Hornets. With Jokic looking to extend his double-double streak tonight against Portland, fantasy players who chose him have an elite pick with high potential.
