Last night only had three games, but most of my picks proved to be accurate. Tonight there will be far more options to choose from with a twelve game slate.
Point Guard: $9,900 Stephen Curry- At this price point, Curry must be inserted into your lineup. He has excellent potential to score 70 fantasy points on any given night, but also has a high floor of about 45 fantasy points. There has been a very murky point guard situation in Chicago, and because of that, Curry gets an added boost.
Point Guard: $5,400 Darren Collison- DeMarcus Cousins is currently serving a suspension administered by the NBA, so Collison should be the focal point of the offense. Collision has been very streaky at times this year, but now is his chance to prove that he deserves the starting spot over Ty Lawson.
Shooting Guard: $5,600 Tim Hardaway Jr- Hardaway has benefited immensely from the departure of Kyle Korver. However, his matchup with Denver is the reason you want to start him. The Nuggets have had pitiful perimeter defense this year, and have been very lenient towards shooting guards. In a similar matchup with the Rockets last week, Hardaway exploded for 43.7 fantasy points.
Shooting Guard: $5,000 Jamal Crawford- His ceiling is limited due to the fact that he comes off the bench, but his recent production has been hard to ignore. Crawford is as close to a sure bet as there is for 5x value.
Small Forward: $3,700 Kelly Oubre Jr- This will be my favorite contrarian play of the night. The game between the red-hot Wizards and the slumping Nets should get ugly quickly. All that means is more minutes for Oubre.
Small Forward: $11,500 LeBron James- James has carried the Cavs on his back for the last month. LeBron is always a safe pick, but he has excellent upside as well.
Power Forward: $4,600 Willie Cauley-Stein- As I said earlier, DeMarcus Cousins will be suspended for a few games. Cauley-Stein is a lock for 6x value and could get you 8x value.
Power Forward: $5,900 James Johnson- This is one pick that I’m not very sure about. If there is another power forward option that you are more comfortable with, I advise you to go with your gut.
Center: $8,300 Andre Drummond- Drummond should have a field day against the Lakers’ horrible paint defense. He should be able to impose his will down low and grab multiple rebounds. A 20-20 game is something that can be expected tonight.Follow @jackstatsblog
