Tonight features a very weak three game slate. That means that each player will be highly owned, making it both difficult and important to be a contrarian. If you want a lineup that will be updated throughout the day, Follow @jackstatsblog .
Point Guard: $8,900 Kemba Walker- Walker is the best point guard option for tonight. He draws the best matchup for point guards, and should be able to capitalize. Expect him to get 5x value.
Point Guard: $5,600 Patrick Beverley- I am not 100% sure about this pick. Due to lack of other options, Beverley makes his way into my lineup. However, Beverley has a very high floor, but also has a pretty good ceiling.
Shooting Guard: $12,700 James Harden- Harden is the only player playing tonight with at least a $10,000 price tag. He has a floor of 45 fantasy points with a ceiling of 95 fantasy points on any given night.
Shooting Guard: $6,100 Seth Curry- The other Curry brother has made the most of the opportunity given to him. This price tag may be steep, but Curry is easily one of the best shooting guard options for tonight.
Small Forward: $5,200 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist- The Charlotte Hornets is one team that I will be targeting tonight seeing as they draw a matchup with the inferior Brooklyn Nets. Kidd-Gilchrist should be able to get a double-double tonight. Because of that, he has a solid floor with a relatively high ceiling.
Small Forward: $4,600 Aaron Gordon- The up-tempo style of the Houston Rockets should benefit Gordon. He is sort of a risky play, but he offers excellent upside.
Power Forward: $4,500 Frank Kaminsky- Kaminsky should be able to get some garbage time points against Brooklyn. Add in the fact that he has been playing well lately, and Kaminsky could be in for a big game.
Power Forward: $5,200 Trevor Booker- Booker has played very well recently and should be able to continue that against the Hornets.
Center: $6,900 Nikola Vucevic- There should be plenty of shots hoisted up in this game which means more rebounding opportunities for Vucevic. He should be able to impose his will down low against the Rockets.Follow @jackstatsblog
