PG Terry Rozier ($3,900)
Kyrie Irving is OUT tonight so that makes Rozier a chalk play on tonight’s slate. He’ll be the highest owned player on the slate and averages 34 FDP as a starter. He’s the first player I’m locking into my lineups tonight.
SG James Harden ($13,300)
He shot 1 for 17 (5%) from 3pt range yet somehow finished with 74 FDP. I expect him to shoot much better from 3 point range tonight because the Grizzlies are allowing opponents to shoot just under 40% from 3 over the last 5 games. He dropped a massive 40 point triple double in his last home game Vs the Grizzlie and finished with 71 FDP. Continue to play him until CP 3 returns.
SF Royce O’Neale
He’s entered the starting lineup and scored 36 FDP in his last start. The Jazz are rolling now with Donovan Mitchell running the point so continue to play them both.
PF Montrezl Harrell ($7,800)
He finally cracked 30+ minutes and dropped 51 FDP in his last home game. This guy is a major FPM producer averaging 1.62 FPM over his last 2 home games. Karl Anthony Towns destroyed this Pelicans front court and he should have a monster game as the Clippers try to matchup against the likes of Anthony Davis and Julius Randle.
C Jusuf Nurkic ($8,800)
The Trailblazers are coming off a b2b so there’s some risk with this play. However, Nurkic is the ultimate GPP center on tonight’s slate. He dropped 88 FDP in a few weeks back against the Kings and the Blazers have won 4 straight games VS Sacramento. I love him in tournaments while you can pivot to a guy like Al Horford in cash games.
My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night
Celtics – Rozier, Brown, Morris, Horford
The Celtics have won 10 straight games against the Nets and are shorthanded tonight as Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart are OUT. Rozier is a must play while Brown, Horford and Morris will get more shots. Hayward is a nice GPP coming off the bench who exceeded 40+ FDP during the last 2 games Kyrie missed.
Spurs – White, Mills, Bertans, Aldridge
The Hornets are struggling and the Spurs have a great matchup tonight. There is blowout risk but the Spurs should produce if they get their minutes.
Pelicans – Clippers
This game has a massive total and you can slack up both sides of this game. You can play Anthony Davis, Holiday and Randle on the Pelicans side and run it back with Lou Williams. Galinari, Harrell and Tobias Harris.
