Happy Humpday, let's keep the hot streak going through the week! We have an abnormally small slate for a Wednesday, as we only have 5 games. There is a ton of injury news for each team and this news will change the whole slate. We do not have many game totals because of the injury news, but we do have the game spreads, and 3 of the 5 games have a 7 point spread or greater. Today is all about rostering the correct value plays as they all will be highly owned. Pivoting off of high owned players could be the reason you win a large field tournament!

The Portland Trailblazer are dealing with injuries to two of their top three players as shooting guard CJ McCollum and center Jusuf Nurkic have suffered injuries this month. Because of the injuries, I love Portland Trailblazer center Enes Kanter. On both FanDuel and DraftKings he is a phenomenal play. On DraftKings he will be extremely high owned as his price tag is only $5,000, but I love Kanter on FanDuel because they priced him up to $6,500 and that will scare people off him. Kanter has a terrific matchup, as the Trailblazers will be visiting Chicago as they take on the Bulls who rank 26th vs the center position. He is an awesome cash game play because of his solid fantasy points floor, so he will be my cash game center. He is also a great GPP play on FanDuel because of the lowered ownership, in this great matchup he has the upside to score 40+ fantasy points and be the best point per dollar play on the slate.

We are going right back to the well with Kanter's teammate Damian Lillard. He has been in most of my lineups since McCollum hurt his knee. I've loved Lillard because of his huge increase in usage rate with McCollum out, and now we also have Nurkic out, and Lillard will get even more of an increase in usage. In this great matchup, Lillard would normally be extremely high owned but like Kanter, FanDuel rose Lillard's price as well. Another reason he will be lower owned is because this game also has a 7 point spread and the blowout risk will scare people off of Lillard. He was already one of my favorite plays because he has a terrific matchup as the Bulls rank 21st vs the point guard position and now he may potentially be low owned because of price tag and the blowout factor. If this game stays close and Lillard gets his full complement of minutes, he could score us 55+ fantasy points and be the main contributor to our GPP winning lineups!

Two nights ago, I wrote about the Memphis Grizzles value plays and they all were phenomenal and they are once again on Wednesday. Grizzles point guard Mike Conley is currently questionable for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors. The Memphis Grizzles are dealing with a lot of injuries so we currently do not have a game total in this game. If Conley is held out on Wednesday, my favorite value play on the Grizzles would be Tyler Dorsey. Most projections systems will have a low fantasy output for Dorsey because Conley hasn't been ruled out of Wednesday's game. We are projecting Dorsey to play 12 minutes and score 11.40 fantasy points. Dorsey has played 20 or minutes in 5 of his last 6 games, and if Conley is out he would see an increase in minutes as well as usage. I like Dorsey more than Justin Holiday because Dorsey has a higher usage rate, and I like Dorsey over Delon Wright because Dorsey will be lower owned. I love all three of these players and I will have exposure to all of them. Keep an eye on the Conley news, as that would change a lot on this Grizzles team!

The Washington Wizards vs the Phoenix Suns game will be the game with the most ownership. This game has a massive 231 game total and only a 2 point spread. This is the best game to game stack as it will be a back and forth scoring affair. Normally, I would be game stacking this game every possible way, but I am weary of the Wizards as they are on the second night of a back to back. My favorite play in this game is Suns shooting guard Devin Booker but he will be extremely high owned. So I will give you my favorite point per dollar play, who is Wizards power forward Bobby Portis. He did not get the start last night against the Lakers because Trevor Ariza came back from his groin injury. Ariza played 6 minutes and re-aggravated it and now is doubtful for Wednesday's game. Portis should reenter the starting lineup on Wednesday and get his normal run of minutes. He has an awesome matchup as the Suns rank 23rd vs the power forward position. The Wizards also play Portis at the center position and he will get Deandre Ayton's defense, and he has been awful all year as the Suns rank 29th against center. We are projecting Portis to play 32 minutes and score 35.56 fantasy points, but in this terrific matchup he can easily score 45+ fantasy points if he gets hot and be one of the top value plays on the slate!

I told you guys I love Portland's Enes Kanter and Damian Lillard, so I want to run it back with some Chicago Bulls. The Bulls, like the Grizzles are a team dealing with a lot of injures, so this is a team we can turn to for low priced value plays. My favorite play on the Bulls is shooting guard Wayne Seldon. On Tuesday played 40 minutes and scored 30.4 fantasy points because the Bulls lack healthy bodies. This is the case again for the Bulls on Wednesday, so I expect more of the same for Seldon. Everyone will be turning to point guards Shaquille Harrison and Ryan Arcidiacono who are great plays, because of this I believe people will ignore Seldon. He has a higher minutes floor and because of that minutes I believe he has a higher scoring floor. All of the Chicago Bulls value players are safe in the case of a blowout because of all the injuries. Have exposure to them all as they could end up 7Xing their salary and be a huge part of your winning lineups.


March basketball is in full effect, as we have all these teams tanking and resting their players. Another player availability will affect tonight's slate, that player being LeBron James. The Lakers said he will not play on second the second night of back to backs. I plan on him sitting on Wednesday and frees up a lot of usage for that Lakers teams. Make sure you can edit your lineups right before 7 P.M. lock, as injuries will change everything. I gave you some of my favorite low to mid-tier players so you can spend up on the high priced studs. What stud will you he rostering? Let's win big…together!
