It feels like it has been an eternity since I last wrote one of these articles, but in reality it has only been a few days. Yesterday featured some interesting games and today does as well.

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

Point Guard: $4,700 T.J. McConnell- Ben Simmons being sidelined opens up plenty of minutes and usage for the rest of the 76ers. Because of that I will have tons of exposure to the 76ers. McConnell will most likely be the starting point guard in Ben Simmons’ absence and he should take full advantage of that. He turned in some big games last year when he was the starter and the same should be true of tonight. The Orlando Magic have played at a very fast pace and that bodes well for McConnell to rack up steals and transition assists. They have also struggled to guard point guards, which makes him a must play at this price tag. He should easily be able to hit 6x value, but I am expecting something closer to 8x value.

Shooting Guard: $5,200 Kent Bazemore- What I love about this slate is the value that it presents and Bazemore is one of my favorite value plays. DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors have been atrocious when it comes to guarding the two-spot and I have been streaming shooting guards against them because of it. Bazemore has one of his better outings of the year last night and that success should carry over for tonight. He has a relatively high floor and has a high ceiling as well. Tim Hardaway Jr is another strong play, but I would only use him in tournaments given his volatile style of play and the possibility of a blowout.

Small Forward: $3,700 Lance Stephenson- This play hinges on the availability of Victor Oladipo. Oladipo suffered an injury during the fourth quarter of the Indiana Pacers’ game against the Toronto Raptors and was unable to return. If he is unable to suit up tonight, Stephenson would become an elite play because of the usage he would see. He has triple-double potential when he gets enough time on the court and would be a viable option in both cash games and tournaments. Make sure you follow Oladipo’s injury situation throughout the day as that would open up plenty of value options on the Indiana Pacers.

Power Forward: $5,300 Dario Saric- Saric is another Philadelphia 76er that should benefit from the absence of Ben Simmons. Saric has since picked up his play after a sluggish start to the year and was inserted into the starting lineup. He is usually tasked with some playmaking duties, but that number should only increase with Simmons sidelined. Most of my favorite plays on this slate are value plays and that gives me plenty of flexibility with my lineups and allows me to spend up in certain spots. Some other power forwards I like are Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum, Serge Ibaka, and Derrick Favors.

Center: $10,100 Joel Embiid- I wish FanDuel would allow me to roster two centers since I am having difficulty choosing between the two. Both are very talented big men that are in excellent spots, but I have to give the edge to Embiid here because of the fact that Ben Simmons will not be playing. That means that the 76ers will lean heavily on Embiid and will feed him the ball. However, there is still a minutes limit in place for him and this price tag is a little high for a player that isn’t even averaging 30 minutes a game. If you would like to go an alternate route, Cousins should be able to dominate down low against a small Warriors team. Most DFS players should gravitate to these two guys, leaving the rest of the center position untouched. Therefore you can get some good talent at very low ownership; the type of thing that can win you tournaments. Embiid and Cousins are still my favorite plays, but you could get lucky with a tournament flier at the center position.
