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.
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.
