Monday treated us very well, as Lillard and Nurkic got us in the green. Hopefully Nurkic can recover from his gruesome injury quickly. It was awful to see as he was having a career year. We have a massive 10 game slate on Tuesday with a lot of injury news. Injuries will shape this slate, so make sure you can edit your lineups around lock. I will be giving you some of my favorite higher priced plays because of all the value that we already and will have.

The Atlanta Hawks are on the slate, so we all know what to do. Stack the New Orleans Pelicans but today I want to fully game stack this game! This game has a massive 240 game total, so we want plenty of exposure to this game! The reason for the massive game total is that both teams rank top 3 in terms of pace. My favorite point per dollar play on the Pelicans is power forward Anthony Davis, he will also come at lower ownership because of his minutes restriction, as people will be scared to roster him. Davis has a fantastic matchup as the Hawks rank 26th vs the power forward position. This games pace will be high and the Hawks play no defense that Davis can crush value in his 22 minutes we are projecting him to play. He will only be in my GPP lineups because of the minutes restriction but Davis can score 50+ fantasy points in this terrific matchup and be the top value player on the slate.

I said my favorite game to game stack will be the Hawks vs Pelicans game and my favorite play on the Hawks is point guard Trae Young. He is a good play on both sites, but he is a better play on FanDuel as he is the same price on both sites. Again, this game's pace will be ridiculous, so we want high usage players and Young has a massive 30.26 percent usage rate. He also has a terrific matchup as the Pelicans rank 29th vs the point guard position. Trae Young has seen a solid minutes floor as of late, playing 31 or more minutes in 7 of his last 9 games. This game has 1 point spread so it should be tightly contested throughout and we are projecting him to score 36.77 fantasy points. Elfrid Payton is questionable for tonight's game and Young could see a lot of Frank Jackson defense. In this awesome matchup in this up-tempo game, Young could show us his ceiling and score 60+ fantasy points and be the main contributor to your GPP winning lineup.

Kyrie Irving has already been ruled out and we shouldn't be surprised, because last week Kyrie told us that he will be rested a few games down the stretch. Early in the season Terry Rozier was a lock into all of our lineups in this situation, but FanDuel has priced him up to $6,500. He is an awesome cash game option and he will be highly owned, but in large field GPP tournaments I will be pivoting to shooting guard Jaylen Brown. He sees a large increase in usage rate when Kyrie is out and Brown will come at low ownership. We are projecting him to play 26 minutes and to score 26.61 fantasy points. But the Celtics will be visiting the Cleveland Cavs in a game with a 6.5 point spread, this game could become a blowout and Brown would see more minutes if that were the case. If we get Brown at 30 minutes and become the main ball handler he could score 35+ fantasy points and at lower ownership he could be one of the top plays on the slate.

James Harden maybe the top scoring player on the slate and he will come in with high ownership, but my favorite point per dollar shooting guard play is Bradley Beal. The Washington Wizards will be visiting the Los Angeles Lakers in a game with the second highest over/under at 232.5. This game has 2 teams who rank in the top 10 in terms of pace, so this game is another one we want plenty exposure to. Recency bias will scare people from rostering Beal. In his last game, he had a tough matchup against the Miami Heat and only scored 25.1 fantasy points, the Lakers are one of the better matchups for shooting guards as they rank 29th vs the position. Normally Beal would be 35 percent owned in this spot, so we should take advantage of everyone's receny bias and roster him in this awesome matchup. He has the upside to score 60+ fantasy points in this matchup and be the best point per dollar play on the slate!

My favorite potentially low owned play is Charlotte Hornet's small forward Miles Bridges. Many times on bigger slates like today, the mid-tier players go under owned because most people like to go stars and scrubs in their lineups. This is why I believe $5,500 Miles Bridges will be under owned. The Hornets chances of making the playoffs are more and more thin by the day, and they have turned to developing their younger players. Bridges being a rookie is one of those players seeing extended run, he has played 29 or more minutes in 4 consecutive games. He also is averaging more than a fantasy point per minute as he has also scored more than 29 fantasy points in those games. Bridges has a solid matchup against the San Antonio Spurs who rank 19th vs the small forward position. We are currently projecting to play 19 minutes and 20 fantasy points, but due to his recent uptick in minutes, he could end up closer to 30 minutes and his minutes should be secure in a blowout. Bridges could end up scoring 35+ fantasy points and 7X his $5,500 price tag and be a huge contributor to your tournament winning lineup!


There are many ways to build your rosters tonight, with all of the value I believe people will go the stars and scrubs route. I gave you some of my mid to top tier plays because of all of the value, keep an eye on the injury news as it will shape the slate. How will you be constructing your lineups tonight? Who are your favorite high priced studs? Let's win big…together!
