Top Fantasy Picks to Watch Tonight

Raptors vs Spurs 

Vegas Favorite – Spurs (-2.0), O/U – 216.5

Player to Watch 

Kawhi Leonard (TOR) – ($10,300/45.90 FPPG) has been on top of his game lately. He rang in the New Year with a 45 point performance against the Utah Jazz, scoring with 72.7% of his shot attempts. Kawhi also has a season high 17 free throw attempts in this game, making 12 of them. He has had relatively steady performance in his last five games averaging 32 points and 7 rebounds while playing around 33 minutes per game. Fantasy players will be wise to take a look Leonard’s way if his performance this month is anything like December’s where he had only three games below 40 FP. He will have a chance to shine again tonight as the Raptors take on his former team in San Antonio. 

Nuggets vs Kings

Vegas Favorite – Nuggets (-3.5), O/U – 227.0

Player to Watch

De’Aaron Fox (SAC) – ($8,700/37.52 FPPG) had a slower performance than usual on January 1st due to a slight shoulder injury making it one of only eight contests where he put up below 30 FP since November 10th. He may not be Sacramento’s highest scorer but in his past seven games he has recorded three double-doubles due in large part to his impressive assist totals, averaging 8.7 per game across those contests. Even with his shoulder giving him trouble he has still played over 30 minutes in the past two games, giving him plenty of time for scoring opportunities and enough time for fantasy players to get some good use from him. 

Rockets vs Warriors 

Vegas Favorite – Warriors (-8.0), O/U – 224.5

Player to Watch

James Harden (HOU) – ($13,000/55.07 FPPG), who currently leads the NBA with an average 33.3 points per game is playing better than any other player in the league at the moment. He continued his dominance on New Year’s Eve where he led the Rockets with 43 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists in Monday’s victory over the Grizzlies, giving him his 4th triple-double of the season. With eight straight games scoring at least 35 points and 5 assists, he also broke a little known record set by Oscar Robertson. Harden was a strong asset for fantasy players thru the month of December, scoring over 60 FP in just over half of the 15 games. Tonight Rockets fans and fantasy players alike will be watching and hoping for him to continue his elite performance as the Rockets try to move further up in the standings.
