There are eleven games on tap for tonight which means there are plenty of options to choose from. Keep in mind that the $ values are based on Yahoo Daily Fantasy.
Point Guard: $35 Mike Conley- Anytime a player is playing against Houston their value goes up astronomically. Add in the fact that Conley has been one of the best guards in the league as of late, and you have a recipe for success. As I said yesterday, Conley has a very high floor as well as a fairly high ceiling.
Shooting Guard: $14 Austin Rivers- After Chris Paul went down with a major injury, Rivers was thrust into a major role in the offense. For that reason alone, Rivers is guaranteed shots and minutes, which makes him a strong fantasy play tonight.
Guard: $33 Eric Bledsoe- Bledsoe has been excellent as of late, and that success should continue against the Knicks. He has flirted with triple-doubles lately, and hopefully he gets one tonight.
Small Forward: $21 Robert Covington- Covington had one of this best games of the season last night, and even though he is on the second leg of a back-to-back, he should have another excellent game. Expect him to get something around the lines of 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Power Forward: $10 Channing Frye- This pick hinges on whether Kevin Love plays or not. If Love sits out, Frye has a high chance of getting a double-double.
Forward: $12 Kyle O’Quinn- Only start O’Quinn if Joakim Noah sits out. Without him in the lineup, O’Quinn should be able to grab plenty of rebounds in a game where plenty of shots should be hoisted up.
Center: $27 DeAndre Jordan- He has but together an impressive string of games, and that should continue against the Nuggets. If Nikola Jokic doesn’t play, this pick is even more enticing.
Utility: $48 John Wall- Wall has been great recently, and as long as the game doesn’t turn into a blowout, Wall should have another strong game tonight. He is able to rack up big numbers in points, assist, and steals. Because of this, Wall has a floor of 35 points with a ceiling of 60 points.
