Tonight features a robust twelve game main slate. Since rosters on FanDuel lock at the start of the first game, make sure you pay attention to all the injury news. For a lineup that is updated throughout the day, DM me on twitter @jackstatsblog.
Point Guard: $7,900 Mike Conley- After a 60.7 point eruption against the Phoenix Suns in his last game, Conley draws a similar matchup against the Nuggets. He should be able to get you at least 40 fantasy points.
Point Guard: $5,900 T.J McConnell- Although the Mavericks are one of the best defensive teams in the league, McConnell should still be able to continue his hot streak.
Shooting Guard: $4,200 Norman Powell- If DeMar DeRozan does not suit up, Powell should be in your lineup. Powell has had an excellent recent stretch of games while DeRozan has been injured.
Shooting Guard: $5,600 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope- His price is still relatively low since he is coming off an injury. Caldwell-Pope has a relatively high ceiling, but his floor isn’t that high due to the injury risk.
Small Forward: $8,500 Carmelo Anthony- After recent trade talks surrounding Anthony broke out, he has been on an absolute tear. That should continue against the Nets lackluster defense.
Small Forward: $6,400 Robert Covington- This is one pick that I am not that confident about. However, Covington has played great recently and has the ability to put together a full stat line.
Power Forward: $6,900 Kenneth Faried- As long as Nikola Jokic doesn’t play, Faried has the chance to score 40 fantasy points. He will be one of the most popular plays of the night.
Power Forward: $5,800 Ersan Ilyavosa- Without Joel Embiid, Ilyavosa is the 76ers primary option on offense. The tough matchup for him shouldn’t provide that much of a problem.
Center: $8,700 Andre Drummond- Drummond should be able to impose his will down low against the Pelicans. He has been trending upward lately, and because of that, he should be featured in a lot of lineups tonight. A cheaper option here is Jonas Valanciunas facing off against the the Celtics.
