Monte Morris – Jamal Murray is dealing with a leg contusion and his statis is questionable for Tuesday’s game. That gives Morris a chance to shine against the league’s worst defense. He is a core play for me if Murray sits.
TJ Mcconnell – Ben Simmons left last game so McConnell becomes one of my top value plays on the slate.
Gary Harris – He’s benefiting from Barton’s absense and took 20 FGA in his last game. The Kings are going to gave up a ton of points and Harris will score at will in this matchup.
Iman Shumpert – He entered the starting lineup in last game and put up a monster stat line. He still too cheap and becomes a top value play.
Nikoa Mirotic – Hooray! Fanduel moved Mirotic to the SF so we can play both Anthony Davis and Mirotic. He’s 2nd in the NBA in scoring (33 ppg) and is a lock on this short slate. The Pelicans offense should shine even though they are facing the NBA’s 3rd best defense.
E’Twaun Moore – He played limited minutes because the Pelicans blew out the Kings last game. The Clippers are a good defensive team in the NBA and should keep it competitive. Mirotic and Moore are my favorite SF plays.
Anthony Davis – He put up 54 FDP in only 26 minutes of play in last game’s blowout. AD averages over 2 FDP per minute! Even at his price tag, I find it hard to fade him tonight. It’s a short slate and should easily be the highest scoring player.
Nikola Jokic – He flashed his upside against a defenseless Suns team but has been held in check when facing the top two defensive teams in the league – Clippers and Golden State. Now, he faces the worst defense in the league and could top 70+ FDP. He’s is my favorite play of the night.
Zaza Pachula – The matchup isn’t great but I’ll be hard to fade Pachula if Drummond sits. He frees up a lot of salary to fit in guys like AD and Jokic.
Miles Plumee – A minimum salary put who will help you stack the studs. The Nuggets will score a lot so I don’t mind any Nugget who plays around 20+ minutes.
My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night
Nuggets – Going against the worst defense in the NBA and will be without possibly two starters – Will Barton and Jamal Murray. Guys like Garry Harris, Milsap and Jokic are in great spots.
Pelicans – Scoring a ridiculous 140 ppg and at home with the current frontrunner for MVP, Anthony Davis.
