Injuries are running rampant right now and there are a few to deal with tonight. LaMelo Ball is expected to miss the rest of the season, which takes a lot of usage and minutes out of Charlotte's backcourt. Giannis Antetokounmpo will miss tonight's game against the Pacers. Expect Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton to soak up a lot of ownership because of this. Rudy Gobert is also questionable tonight against Chicago. Every game is over 220 tonight and spreads are no more than 8.5. There are no blowout concerns, although the Raptors handling Houston should be considered one.
Devonte' Graham - $4,800 - PG/SG
Because of the LaMelo Ball injury, we will see a lot of ownership flock to Devonte Graham and Malik Monk. The price tags are a major reason why, as they are both below $5,000 on DraftKings, which is essentially a free square tonight. Usually, I opt to fade such chalky plays but this is a great spot for them against a lackluster San Antonio backcourt defense. They are in the bottom half in defensive efficiency and fantasy points allowed to opposing backcourts.
Collin Sexton - $7,100 - PG/SG
The Cavs-Kings game has a 223 over/under tonight between two defenses that well, struggle to play defense. Collin Sexton remains a high usage option and his minutes are absurd. The Kings rank 25th against point guards this season and Sexton is averaging 35 fantasy points per game over the last ten and a 48.7 fantasy point ceiling in that span. Love the price tag and the pivot away from Jrue Holiday and Terry Rozier at similar prices.
Anthony Edwards - $7,200 - SG/SF
Minnesota has a 117 implied total this evening and Anthony Edwards has been on fire of late. He is averaging 40.8 fantasy points per game in the last ten with a 32% usage rate. Since the break, he is playing 36 minutes per game, shooting 22.5 attempts per game, and his percentages are up 7%+ for field goals and three-point shooting. He is also notching 1.5 steals per game in that span.
Pascal Siakam - $7,500 - PF/C
Not many have been more up and down of late than Pascal Siakam. He has posted 19, 50, 24, 12, and 48 fantasy point games over his last five. The shooting has been a bit off but he doesn't solely rely on it for big numbers, given he has averaged 7.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this season. It is a great spot against Houston, and I don't mind using him at these price tags.
Robert Williams - $6,000 - C
Boston has not had a reliable big in a long time but Robert Williams has been forcing Brad Stevens to play him more, especially because he does a lot of what the Celtics need. He rebounds well and is a shot-blocker. He is averaging 1.7 blocks per game this season and has averaged 2.4 over the last five games to go along with 11 and 10. I like the risk in tonight's matchup against Memphis who has allowed 2.3 blocks per game
Bogdan Bogdanovic - $3,900 - SF
Bogdan Bogdanovic has been injured for most of this season but has started to come back and see more minutes. He has played 30 and 29 minutes over the last two games, putting up 19 and 37 fantasy points. At $3,900 we are looking at a pretty big price difference for someone who should be at least $5,000 no matter the reasonings for his struggles.
