Where did the weekend go! Hopefully everyone had a great weekend, let's start this week with a big win! We have a very interesting 7 game slate, as we have many different ways to construct our rosters. For you those of you who mass enter tournaments, this is the perfect slate to game stack. This slate has some insanely high over/under numbers, with the lowest one currently sitting at 224.

The New Orleans Pelicans will be taking offers this summer for power forward Anthony Davis and they want to make sure he makes it to the offseason 100% healthy. Because of this, the New Orleans Pelicans will find any excuse they can to sit Davis. The Pelicans rested Davis on Saturday and now he is questionable for Monday's game due to an illness. Power forward Cheick Diallo has been one of the beneficiaries by picking up extra minutes. He is the ultimate GPP play because he comes with a lot of risk. His minutes aren't secure, and the Pelicans are squaring off against the Utah Jazz who rank 2nd against the power forward position. Diallo has scored 31 fantasy points or more in 4 of his last 6 games. This game has a total of 230 with a 9.5 point spread. Without Anthony Davis, this game is projected be a blow out. I believe that won't change Diallo's minutes. In fact, I believe he will see an increase in his minutes once the Pelicans pull their starters. Diallo comes with some risk, but he can be a low owned player who helps you win a tournament. I will be firing him up as my potential drop score on FanDuel, but I will be expecting him score at least 31 points! Again only roster Diallo if Davis misses this game.

On Monday we have the battle of Los Angeles, as we have the Los Angeles Clippers “visiting" the Los Angeles Lakers. This game has a massive over/under at 237.5. Clippers shooting guard Lou Williams has huge upside on this slate. He is usually under owned because he comes off the bench, but we should actually prefer it that way. Williams, the two time sixth man of the year award winner, comes into the game and becomes the main ball handler for the Clippers. He is a score first guard, his fantasy output comes from his ability to make shots. These players are hard to roster because if they go cold from the field, their fantasy numbers suffers. But in this case we may be able to ignore that because the Lakers rank 29th vs the shooting guard position.This a spot we can see "Sweet Lou" drop 50 points and kick ourselves for not playing him in this awesome matchup.

Another game we want exposure to is the Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat game. This game has a 223 over/under which is the lowest on the slate and currently has a 9 point spread. There will be many people who look at the over/under and look at the spread and completely fade it, so there is a chance we can have some players in elite matchups at lower ownership. The Hawks are a young team who love to play at a fast pace on offense, but struggle on the defensive side of the ball. Those are the two main facts that make the Atlanta Hawks my favorite team to stack against. They rank 29th vs the small forward position, so that makes the Miami Heat's small forward Josh Richardson an awesome play on this slate. Richardson's current usage rate is 19.88, but that could see an increase as point guard Goran Dragic is questionable with a calf strain injury, and the Heat will turn to Richardson to facilitate the offense. Richardson is averaging 34.9 minutes a game this season, and if this game stays close as the spread suggest he has the ability to score 45+. That would be enough to 7X his price on this slate.

As I said before, this is a great day to game stack, now we are going to go to the late night hammer. Again the Clipper vs Lakers game is easily the highest over/under on the slate with 237.5, so this game will have a lot of ownership. LeBron will be heavily owned especially in a game like this, so we need to find a contrarian play in this game. The Clippers rank 29th against the power forward position, as they are giving up 52.5 fantasy points per game to the position. This bodes well for Lakers power forward Kyle Kuzma. We are projecting him to play 31 minutes and score 29.99 fantasy points. He has played 34 minutes in each of his last 4 games, so he could easily score 35+. I am projecting this game to go over its implied total. This game also has a 4.5 point spread, so we expect it to be a tightly contested game. Like Lou Williams, Kuzma relies on his shot making ability for his fantasy output, so he should only be in your tournament lineups. High total, close spread, and playing at home? Kuzma is primed to have a huge game!

The more research I do, the more I love these Miami Heat players, my contrarian mind loves the thought of lower ownership in these awesome matchups! Another great play in the Miami game is Justice Winslow, who is slated as a small forward on FanDuel. Rostering Winslow and Richardson will differentiate your roster from the field because most people won't roster two small forwards from the same team. Since Goran Dragic initially went down with his injury, Miami's head coach Erik Spoelstra elected to start Winslow at point guard. Winslow has the best of both worlds, no matter where he plays, he will have a great matchup! As I said above, the Hawks rank 29th against small forwards, but they also rank 29th vs point guards. Winslow's usage rate is 21.13 and we are projecting him to play 32 minutes. But like Richardson, I expect a slight uptick in minutes as well as usage rate in this fast pace game. With The Hawks being so poor on defense, I could see Winslow score 20 points, grab 6 rebounds, and dish out 5 assists. The Atlanta Hawks also turn the ball over at a high rate, and Winslow is a terrific defender. He could get us 2 or 3 steals and a block and end up having a huge night!

Monday's slate look like we should be game stacking in all of our lineups. You guys know my favorite game is the Hawks/Heat game. In the comment section let me know what games you will be game stacking. Let's win big...together!
