Last night featured a very eventful Sunday slate, but tonight’s slate isn’t looking anywhere near as good. Nevertheless, there are a couple of interesting situations and matchups that could make it an intriguing slate.
Our NBA player projections are now available down below. These projections are all algorithm-produced through a series of factors that include DvP, usage, Vegas team total, Vegas O/U, and many more. What makes our projection model special is how it is tailored to each individual player, and that makes for more accurate projections. The projections are available for FanDuel and Yahoo
Point Guard: $5,700 De’Aaron Fox- Each and every position on this slate is shallow, but point guard might be the least appealing of them all. Not a single player jumps out as a must-play since none of them are in positive matchups. You don’t really want to play any of these point guards, but it is simply a matter of being forced to play two of them. Russell Westbrook will likely garner a ton of exposure given his matchup with the Sacramento Kings, but the blowout potential makes me a bit weary. I will likely be going the path less traveled and will be rostering the player on the opposite side of the matchup. Russell Westbrook is not known for his defense and the Thunder as a whole have struggled since Andre Roberson went down. Fox should be able to hit value and shouldn’t be affected that much if the game turns into a blowout.
Shooting Guard: $4,300 Danny Green- This may sound odd, but Danny Green is my favorite play of tonights slate. He always gets up for games against star shooting guards and James Harden is the perfect example of a star shooting guard. He has an excellent track record against Harden and the Rockets and should be able to build on those prior performances. Ben McLemore is another strong play here as he should be in for a large amount of minutes yet again.
Small Forward: $11,900 Giannis Antetokounmpo- Antetokounmpo is probably my favorite superstar to pay up for in this slate. While his matchup doesn’t stand out, there isn’t a player on this Grizzlies that matches up well with the Greek Freak. Sometimes on these smaller slates it is important to have the raw points that a player like Antetokounmpo offers.
Power Forward: $4,400 Davis Bertans- With LaMarcus Aldridge sitting out this one, Bertans will be thrust into a larger role. He has flashed tournament winning potential before this season, and tonight could be one of those performances. His low price point means he only needs 22 fantasy points to attain 5x value. Bertans is a safe bet for 7x value and could possibly reach 10x value if his shot is falling.
Center: $7,800 Marc Gasol- It has been a very difficult season for the Memphis Grizzlies and Gasol hasn’t been immune to those struggles. It seems as if half the team is sidelined due to injury and that means Gasol will be in for all the usage he can handle. The Milwaukee Bucks have struggled to defend centers this year and that bodes well for Gasol. I will also be loading up on Steven Adams if he ends up playing.
