General Slate Info

  • # of Games tonight: 10
  • Lineup Lock: 7pm EST

Juke’s Quick Take

We have a huge 9 game slate tonight with several studs playing including Harden, Westbrook, Lebron James and Anthony Davis. Tonight, there is enough value to plug in a few value plays then build your lineup around your core.

My favorite game targets are:

  • BOS vs HOU
  • OKC vs NOP
  • LAL vs POR
  • PHI vs MIL
  • SAC vs CLE
  • MEM vs TOR

My Top 5 Picks of the Night

PG – Kyrie Irving

The young PG is on a scoring tear of late and Lebron James has given him the green light to carry the offensive load. He’s coming off 49 real points against the Pelicans and gets dream matchup against the Kings. The Cavaliers have scored at least 120 points in their last 3 matchup against the Kings so Kyrie is in the play in all formats.

SG – CJ Mccollum

With guys like Wade soaking up all the ownership in a tough matchup, I want to pay up for CJ in a dream matchup. He’s averaging 42 FDP against the Lakers and gives you a nice pivot from more popular plays. The Lakers are terrible, and while I think Lillard is in play, I like CJ because he’s cheaper. SG has lots of options so I’ll take the safety of CJ Mccollum.

SF – James Ennis

I want to fit Anthony Davis in my lineup so you need to find value somewhere. Memphis has a lot of injuries tonight and only have 8 or 9 players available. Ennis has been good in his previous starts, averaging around 22 FDP. He has upside too, and with the Raptors coming off a tough loss against San Antonio, I like all the Grizzlies.

PF – Anthony Davis

Be greedy when others are fearful. He has a super high ceiling and has dominated OKC in the last 2 matchups. I predict his ownership to be super low even though he has rested for almost 2 games. He’s averaging 66 FDP against OKC and could possibly be the highest scoring player tonight. OKC has nobody to stop him and if he stays in the game, he could really go off.

C – Marc Gasol

Again, Memphis is one of the best value spots on the night. Marc Gasol is averaging around 44 FDP in his last 3 home games and hit the 40+ FDP mark in 4 straight games. He will be overlooked yet can put up Demarcus Cousins numbers at a significant discount. His ownership will be super low so I have him in all my lineups across the board.
