I’m not sure whether I like this slate or whether I hate it. Some positions feel very deep, but other positions feel very shallow. There are a couple of games that I will be targeting, but other ones that I will be avoiding at all costs.

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

Point Guard: $4,900 Tim Frazier- Frazier has been thrust into the role of starting point guard for the Washington Wizards after John Wall’s injury. Frazier offers upside in both steals and assists, but can add in other peripheral stats as well. He is an excellent value play that offers a very high floor, but has a lofty ceiling as well. If Jeff Teague is out for another game, Tyus Jones would become a near must-start option. Ricky Rubio is a player I really want to roster given his absurd $5,700 price tag. However, his recent play makes me hesitant to have a ton of exposure to him, but I will have him in a couple of lineups.

Shooting Guard: $5,500 Justin Holiday- This is an atrocious player pool for shooting guards, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any strong options. Holiday is a very strong value option that has a very high ceiling as well. The Phoenix Suns are one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA and play at one of the fastest paces as well. That means they yield plenty of fantasy points and it will be nearly impossible to win a large tournament tonight if you don’t have any exposure to the Chicago Bulls. If I had to choose my second favorite shooting guard option, I would choose Dion Waiters in a revenge spot.

Small Forward: $7,300 Otto Porter Jr- The best way to attack the Minnesota Timberwolves is through point guards, small forwards, and centers. Because of that, I will have exposure to those three positions on the Washington Wizards. Porter Jr has an ability to rack up points in a hurry and that leads to some big games. He has seen an uptick in usage with John Wall sidelined and that makes his already high ceiling even higher. In my opinion small forward is the most loaded position on this slate. I really want to play LeBron James against the Heat, Denzel Valentine against the Suns, and Jimmy Butler against the Wizards alongside Porter. I wish Butler had a lower price as his $8,800 price tag is way too high, but I will still have exposure to him in tournaments.

Power Forward: $5,800 James Johnson- I never really enjoy rostering James Johnson, but he makes sense here given the dearth of options at the power forward position. Johnson has an ability to stuff the stat sheet and draws an exploitable matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Those aforementioned reasons should lead to plenty of fantasy production at a very cheap price. He is easily my favorite power forward option of the night.

Center: $4,900 Marcin Gortat- The centers on this slate aren’t very appealing to me so that makes Marcin Gortat my favorite center option, which is a very scary thought. Gortat has shown a limited ceiling but a high floor, making him a strictly cash game only play. Nevertheless, he should be able to net 7x value at this low price.
