Tipoff starts at 7:30 eastern time, which buys you a half hour to hopefully get some news in. There are a few spreads to watch out for with the Pelicans being -9.5 favorites against Detroit, the Suns are -10 against Charlotte, and Utah is -8.5 against the Lakers. None of these are really stay-away games for me. Every total tonight is one you can target, so we have a decent slate ahead of us.
Zach LaVine - $9,600 - SG
Zach LaVine gets a little revenge again tonight but overall he has been on another level. He has averaged 48.3 in his last five and has a 56 DK point ceiling in his last ten, all while shooting 53% from the field and averaging 1.37 FPPM. Chicago ranks 24th against shooting guards and the Bulls have a 115 implied team total to target. Coby White at $6,500 is also intriguing.
Dejounte Murray - $7,400 - PG
The Spurs continue to be in the hunt for a playoff spot and have played better than expected this season. The backcourt has been the main reason why Dejointe Murray continues his strong season. He is averaging 37 over his last five games and does have a 47 fantasy point ceiling over his last ten games. I like him tonight in a good spot against OKC, who ranks 20th against point guards.
Theo Maledon - $4,500 - PG
We have seen SGA come back but Theo Maledon and him have been together in the backcourt. His minutes have been safe of late and his play has been a bit all over the place. At $4,500 he is worth a shot, with the Spurs being a bottom-half backcourt defense. Maledon has a 29.3 fantasy point ceiling in the last ten games which would be excellent at $4,500.
Domantas Sabonis - $10,500 - PF/C
Domantas Sabonis is a bit expensive but is in a great spot tonight against the Warriors. This defense struggles overall but especially against the frontcourt. Sabonis has been terrific this season but the floor is a bit lower than I like for the price tag. However, this is someone with a 63 fantasy point ceiling over the last ten games and has a 29% usage rate. The Pacers have a 116 implied total to target this evening.
DeAndre Ayton - $6,900 - C
DeAndre Ayton is worth a look at $6,900 tonight. This is a pretty strong price tag for a mid-range center with upside. Especially against Charlotte, who we continuously like to target with bigs. They rank 24th against centers. The minutes have been down the last two due to blowouts but Charlotte has been competitive enough to keep this at least close until the end.
Jae'Sean Tate - $6,200 - SF/PF
With the injuries in Houston, we have seen Jae-Sean Tate pick up his play and see solid minutes of late. He has scored 30+ DK points in three straight and has been doing it across multiple categories. Cleveland's defense has struggled against just about every position this season so I don't mind rolling out some Rockets tonight, especially Wall again.
