Last night most of my picks were proven correct with Eric Bledsoe, Carmelo Anthony, Otto Porter, and Kyle O’Quinn all doing better than expected. Tonight there will be more options to choose from with nearly twice as any games featured. Keep in mind that all $ values are based on Yahoo Fantasy Sports.
Point Guard: $33 Mike Conley- Conley is one of the most reliable playmakers in the NBA and that attribute carries over to fantasy. His ability to take over a game makes him an enticing option. Conley has a high floor and a fairly large ceiling.
Shooting Guard: $62 James Harden- With the two best offenses in the league going at each other tonight, Harden could have one of his best games of the season. He has been stellar on offense this season due to his scoring ability and improved passing. Harden will likely be tonight’s top performer, so he needs to be in your lineup.
Guard: $29 Klay Thompson- As I stated in the aforementioned paragraph, the game between the Rockets and Warriors should cede plenty of baskets. That bodes well for Thompson as he can heat up quickly. When Thompson is playing well, he is one of the best shooters in the NBA. Expect him to have a strong performance, with the only downside being the fact that the Warriors have plenty of mouths to feed.
Small Forward: $11 Dario Saric- Saric has been playing surprisingly well in the minutes he has gotten, which puts him on this list. This is a risky play, but is needed in order to stomach the price of Harden.
Power Forward: $16 Terrence Jones- This is another risky pick, but since the Pelicans are playing the Nets, the game could get ugly quickly. If the game turns to a blowout, Jones could see more court time in order to give Anthony Davis rest.
Forward: $11 Matt Barnes- With Rudy Gay out of the picture for the foreseeable future, Barnes becomes a sneaky play in daily fantasy. Barnes offers the best value for this price.
Center: $27 Rudy Gobert- He has been slowly developing into one of the league’s premier two-way players. Rudy’s scoring and rebounding makes him an excellent play.
Utility: $12 Buddy Hield- As I said before, this game could get out of hand. That means for minutes for Hield to shine. Because of his shooting ability, he can go off on any given night.
