Last night featured an eventful slate and tonight sadly only has three games on its main slate. Albeit the fact that it is a condensed slate, there are still some intriguing matchups that should yield plenty of fantasy points. There are also some interesting tournament lineups that can be created. One of my main strategies for tonight is to try to fit as many Celtics in my lineups as possible.

Comment below who you think the top point-per-dollar player on the slate will be. Guess correctly and you will receive a free Seven-Day Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup package.

This is only a first reaction to players on a slate. For an in-depth researched premium lineup, purchase a subscription below.

Point Guard: $6,000 Terry Rozier- Thankfully we are allotted two point guard spots so I don’t have to make the difficult decision of choosing between Rozier and Dennis Smith Jr. They are by far my two favorite point guard options on the slate and I will have plenty of exposure to the both of them. Rozier is only a strong play if Kyrie Irving ends up suiting up. Hopefully Kyrie ends up sitting since most of my core plays hinge on whether he plays or not. Rozier stepped up in his absence a couple of nights ago and you should expect him to build on that performance tonight. He will face a porous Brooklyn Nets defense that has been very lax with the amount of fantasy points they have been ceding to opposing point guards.

Shooting Guard: $12,500 James Harden- Ownership on Harden will be very high tonight due to the lack of other top-tier players. Nevertheless, this is one spot where I want to eat the chalk. Harden started out a bit slow (by his standards) this year, but he has since come on strong. He showcased his sky-high ceiling by scoring 75+ fantasy points in two consecutive games a couple of nights ago. While you shouldn’t expect a replica of those performances, it is not completely out of the picture to expect something very close to it. DeMar DeRozan is one of the most offensively crafty shooting guards in the league, but does not pose a threat to Harden defensively. Marcus Smart is another very strong play if Irving is unable to suit up.

Small Forward: $6,200 DeMarre Carroll- D’Angelo Russell has already been ruled out of tonights game against the Boston Celtics. That bodes very well for Carroll as he should see an increase in usage and shot attempts. The Boston Celtics have been one of the best defensive teams in the league, but opposing small forwards have done very well against them. Carroll is one of my favorite cash game plays, but he does possess enough upside to be a viable tournament option. My second favorite small forward on the slate would have to be Jaylen Brown.

Power Forward: $5,100 Jayson Tatum- Tatum has proved himself as one of the leagues most NBA-ready rookies and has turned plenty of heads because of it. This price seems way too low for the type of usage and potential he has. He can score in a hurry and rack up other peripheral stats as well. His matchup with the up-tempo Brooklyn Nets is one that he should be able to take advantage of. He would also receive a fairly large boost if Irving is unable to play.

Center: $6,600 Pau Gasol- Gasol is usually someone that I don’t think of as a strong fantasy play, but I do when he is in a good a spot as this. He draws a matchup with Dirk Nowitzki and his conservative interior defense. Plenty of other centers with far less offensive talent than Gasol have fared well against the Dallas Mavericks. He is an excellent cash game play, but offers plenty of upside as well. Clint Capela is in a good spot as well.
