After last night’s minuscule slate, tonight and its eleven game slate is a welcome sight. Because of the size of the slate, there are plenty of strong plays to choose from and worrying about ownership won’t be nearly as important as it usually is since ownership will be dispersed rather evenly across each player.
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: $7,800 Lonzo Ball- Ball’s entrance into the Association has been heavily scrutinized. A lot of that has to do with his loud and brash father LaVar. Lonzo struggled with his shot early on, but he has since improved upon those early woes. He was out for an extended period of time with an injury, but he hasn’t shown any lingering effects from that injury since returning. His matchup with the Denver Nuggets is one of the best you could ask for and he should be able to thrive in this fast paced game environment. I like him more as a tournament play, but he is viable in cash games as well.
Shooting Guard: $9,500 Victor Oladipo- Shooting guard and power forwards are the two positions the Philadelphia 76ers struggle to defend the most so I will be targeting the Indiana Pacers’ players at those positions. Oladipo has justified his large price tag with some big games recently and I expect one of those big games to be tonight. He thrives in up-tempo game environments like what this one projects to be. I expect the 76ers to guard Oladipo with Robert Covington, but I still like Oladipo’s chances of hitting value.
Small Forward: $7,400 Otto Porter Jr- One of the best ways to attack the Minnesota Timberwolves is through small forwards. Because of that and the fast pace that the Timberwolves play at, I tend to stream small forwards that are playing against them. 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. Robert Covington stands out as an intriguing GPP play, but I would be wary of him in cash games.
Power Forward: $5,100 Thaddeus Young- Young is one of my favorite tournament plays of the entire slate. Given the surplus of strong options at each position, I fully expect him to get lost in the shuffle. He tends to perform better in fast-paced game environments which this one should be. Dario Saric is not a player known for his defense and that only strengthens the case for Young. Young’s price is also dirt-cheap, making him an excellent value play.
Center: $9,800 Joel Embiid- I am toying with the idea of a Pacers/76ers game stack given the staggering amount of players I like in this game. There are a ton of strong center plays on this slate, but Embiid stands out thanks to his excellent matchup and floor/ceiling combination. The price tag is a bit high, but there should be enough value that opens up throughout the day to make it easier to fit his salary in.Follow @jackstatsblog
