Davis is the most expensive player on the board tonight and definitely has the most upside out of anyone. There is some slight injury concern with him since he missed last game, but I think the team was just being careful with him, realizing they can beat the Nets without him. His last game before getting hurt, he had 40 points and 18 rebounds in just three quarters of play. His upside is honestly 100 points and he is going to be a tough player to fade tonight.

This game is a complete clash of styles, with the Spurs being one of the slowest teams, and the Suns being one of the fastest paced teams. Everybody on the Spurs team gets a boost in this one, but Kawhi Leonard should get the most out of everyone. Leonard is the leader of this team and excels in faster paced games. In this same matchup last month, he had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds with 4 assists. I think he posts a similar line in this one and even gets a few extra steals and blocks. With the question marks on the health of Butler and Wall, I prefer Leonard at this price point.

Gobert is a beast, and there is nobody on this Magic team that has any chance at stopping him. The Magic are 23rd in the league at defending centers and they give up 50.93 FanDuel points per game at the position. Gobert is a walking double-double and he should have no issue getting another one tonight. He has immense upside with his ability to block shots. The Magic are getting 5.3 shots blocked per game on average and Gobert should be projected for at least 3 in this one. Gobert is my favorite center tonight for GPP's

Evans is healthy again and is starting to see his normal minutes. The other night against the Nets, he scored 29 points, which would already be 5x his value. When Evans gets 30 minutes, he has 50+ fantasy point upside. I project him for around that tonight and if Butler misses this one for the Bulls, Evans would get a very easy matchup. He is very risky due to his inconsistency in minutes since coming back from injury, but the upside he carries is very good for GPP's.

Embiid is already ruled out for the game tonight and Saric is way too cheap for the amount of opportunity he will be getting. Saric is averaging around 20 fantasy points in the games where Embiid did not play. You can expect around the same performance tonight, and he has shown 35+ point upside multiple times this season also. Washington is not a very good defensive team, and I think Saric has a solid game tonight. The only risk is the potential of Noel taking minutes away from him.

This suggestion could completely blow up in my face if he gets a DNP-CD, but that is what makes this a GPP play. We have no idea what Rondo's minutes will be, especially if Butler is back. However, I am willing to take that risk on a few teams tonight in a short slate. The Pelicans are the third worst team in the NBA at defending point guards, and Rondo still has that triple-double upside every time he steps on the court. We have no idea what we will get out of him tonight, but I am willing to take that risk for the amount of upside he brings.
