Damian Lillard – $9,700
He’s 2nd in the league in scoring and always performs well against the Lakers. Kemba Walker will be highly owned but there is a good chance that the Hornets blow out the Cavs at home and Kemba only plays reduced minutes. The Trailblazers-Lakers game should stay close with Lebron playing and that gives Lilliard a safe floor with a massive ceiling.
Jamal Murray – $7,200
The Nuggets are 7-1 and host the Jazz on Saturday night. We all now the best way to attack the Jazz is with PGs and Derrick Rose dropped 50 on the Jazz earlier this week. Murray has b2b 38+ FDP games against the Jazz and should have his way with Ricky Rubio all the night
Demar Derozan – $9,900
The Spurs are my favorite stack of the night and I’m starting things off with Derozan who is the scoring engine of this Spurs team. If he plays 35+ minutes, he can easily hit 60+ FDP against the 2nd worst defense in the NBA.
Malik Monk – $4,400
Monk is a solid scorer off the bench and he’s hit 20+ FDP in 3 straight. He’ll get plenty of run in this game and should easily hit value.
Rudy Gay – $6,600
He’s seen a price reduction and posted b2b 40+ FDP games at home. The Pelicans are a dream matchup for Fantasy goodness and Anthony Davis should help keep the game close.
Evan Turner – $5,000
Maurice Harkless is out, which opens up minutes for Evan Turner. He’s a solid producer off the bench and pairs nicely with Lillard in tournaments.
Wendell Carter Jr. – $7,400
The Rockets are the worst in the league at defending the PF. PJ Tucker is a good defender but he’s undersized for the position. Carter has 60+ FDP upside and went off during his last home game VS the Nuggets.
Al-Farouq Aminu – $5,000
He’ll log heavy minutes as he and Evan Turner will take turns guarding Lebron James. He’s coming off a strong performance at home and should play 30+ minutes. The Trailblazers are a good team, especially at home, so Aminu is a fine play at this price.
Cody Zeller – $4,600
Don’t love the play but he’s simply too cheap for the matchup. Tristian Thompson is not a good defender and he could get lots of easy dunks and putbacks. He has a solid floor of 20 FDP with a potential 35+ FDP game.
My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night
Spurs – Forbes, Derozan, Gay, Aldridge
Spurs are in great spot to produce tonight. The Pelicans play at a fast pace and don’t play defense.
Trailblazers – Lillard, McCollum, Turner, Aminu
The Lakers-Trailblazer games provide plenty of fantasy goodness and Portland has 15-game winning streak against the Lakers. Portland is a safe and secure stack.
Hornets – Walker, Batum, Monk, Zeller
The Cavs could get blown out and the Hornets may empty the bench so there is risk. If it stays close, Walker and company should have big nights.
