Derrick Rose – $7,200
Jeff Teague and Andrew Wiggins are both questionable so fire up Rose for a high upside play in GPPs. While I don’t like the matchup Vs Jrue Holiday, Vegas lists the Timberwolves with the highest total on the slate. They just lost their best player, Jimmy Butler, so expect Rose and Towns to pick up the scoring.
CJ Mccollum – $6,400
Damian Lillard is listed as questionable and this looks like a blowout spot for CJ Mccollum. The Lakers are ranked 29th in SG defensive effiency and if Lillard sites then Mccollum will get all the usage.
E’Twaun Moore – $4,900
He dropped 30 points against the Raptors and is still priced under 5k. This game has the highest total on the slate and you can stack both sides.
Serge Ibaka – $6,900
Toronto is getting excellent production from both PF on Fanduel – Siakam and Ibaka. If I had to choose 1, I’d take Ibaka but Siakam could get into foul trouble guarding Blake Griffin. They are both in play though and Ibaka will play heavy minutes dealing with Andre Drummond.
Andre Drummond – $10,000
There’s a lot of Center plays I like tonight (Thompson, Lopez, Towns) but I’ll go with the lower owned play in Drummond. People will get scared of the matchup VS Toronto but Anthony Davis dropped 60 FDP against them and had a good game. Drummond will play heavy minutes and has 60+ FDP upside. Towns is a great play but I don’t like the matchup with Anthony Davis.
My Favorite Team Stacks of the Night
Washington Wizards – Wall, Beal, Green, Morris
The Wizards get to face a Cavs team coming off a b2b. This game is extremely fantasy friendly and a great target for stacks. I prefer the Wizards here since the Cavs face a tough situation playing a road game on a b2b.
New Orleans Pelicans – Holiday, Moore, Davis, Randle
The Pelicans dominated the Raptors at home (not an easy task) and they are red hot right now. The Timberwolves have one of the worst defenses in the league and are still ranked 2nd to last in the Western conference. Plus, they lost their best player, Jimmy Butler. Pelicans should roll in this one and I expect big games from Holiday and Davis.
Minnesota Timberwolves – Rose, Gibson, Towns
A trade can do wonders for a struggling team so let’s see how they respond without their best player. The Timberwolves have the highest total on the slate so expect a fast paced, back and forth matchup.
