There are five games on tap for tonight’s main slate. Even though there aren’t that many options to choose from, there is still plenty of value to be found. Keep in mind that all $ values are for FanDuel. For optimal lineups that are updated as the day goes along, DM me on twitter @jackstatsblog.
Point Guard: $10,000 Isaiah Thomas
His production as of late has been absolutely absurd. Even at 5’9″, Thomas finds a way to routinely score north of 35 points. Add in ten assists to those points and you are looking at a 50 fantasy point game. Thomas has a solid floor with a fairly high ceiling.
Point Guard: $7,500 Mike Conley
Conley will get a boost of pace as he faces the up-tempo Phoenix Suns. This is one of the safer plays of the night, yet still offers upside.
Shooting Guard: $4,300 Seth Curry
The other Curry player has been playing a lot like his brother as of late. No matter what, Curry should be in your lineup. He is a lock for at least 5x value.
Shooting Guard: $6,400 Zach LaVine
LaVine went on a cold stretch for a couple of games, but that is all over with now. The past two games saw LaVine exceeding 35 points giving him over 5x value in both. This could end up being a very lucrative play if you are willing to take on the risk.
Small Forward: $6,300 Jae Crowder
Without Avery Bradley in the lineup, Crowder has shined. He has put together a very impressive string of games, headlined by his 42 point output this past Wednesday. Crowder should continue to be in your lineup as long as Bradley is sidelined.
Small Forward: $4,300 Bojan Bogdanovic
Bogdanovic has proved to be a lone bright spot in a dismal year for the Brooklyn Nets. He should have no trouble at all exceeding 5x value against the Heat.
Power Forward: $3,800 Channing Frye
With Kevin Love leaving yesterday’s game due to back spasms, Frye should garner the start for the struggling Cavaliers. The last time Love was injured, Frye put together a nice string of games.
Power Forward: $6,400 Zach Randolph
If JaMychal Green does not suit up, Randolph gets an added boost here. In a shallow pool of power forwards to choose from, this play makes the most sense.
Center: $10,900 Karl-Anthony Towns
Towns should be able to impose his will down low against the Orlando Magic. Excluding LeBron James, Towns has the chance to be the highest scoring player of the night.
