Tonight's 9 game slate feels so much better than last night's montrosity. There is plenty of injury news and players resting to be mindful of so try to stay on top of that. If Kristaps Porzingis sits again players like Joakim Noah and Carmelo Anthony receive a significant boost. Meanwhile in Toronto, it may be DeMar DeRozan's turn to rest after Kyle Lowry's late scratch last night and heavy minutes/workload. This would boost all of the Raptors starters, primarily Kyle Lowry.

All of these things will open up value tonight and Vegas lines will be changing or updating as well. As we learned last night stay on top of this as much as you can and have a backup plan.

GPP Plays are about finding low ownership and high ceilings to help take down a major tournament. We highlight two high-priced, mid-priced, and low-priced plays across the Main Slate. Be sure to check out our new revamped Colossus lineup optimizer.

Giannis is one of my favorite plays each and every night and his last start was slowed significantly when he got into foul trouble against the 76ers. Tonight he faces the 10th ranked team in DvP but Antetokounmpo has proven he is essentially matchup proof. This should be a fast paced and high scoring game which Giannis tends to excel in. We have him projected for a 4X tonight, but with a very high ceiling especially if this game remains close.

DeMarcus Cousins (PF/C), Sacramento Kings

Cousins is in one of the best matchups of the night facing the Pacers and their 27th ranked DvP. Cousins usage is always through the roof, and the minutes are there as well. This feels like a very safe high priced play, and I am willing to pay up for him tonight even in GPP.

Portland actually fares well against point guards, but this team has not looked very energetic or competitive over the past week. The Blazers aren't very good at rim protection and Kemba Walker at home performs much better than on the road. His ceiling is much higher than his projected 5X value tonight. He will also be lower owned due to the sheer amount of point guards on tonights slate.

Draymond Green (PF/C), Golden State Warriors

Green has only scored 35 or less FD points once in his last 7 games. He has been as consistent of a DFS commodity as they come and with a just under 5X nearly locked and loaded, his ceiling is much higher. The Thunder can guard big men relatively well but if Steven Adams remains out Green should be able to rumble with Enes Kanter (who makes another great play tonight) and others just fine. This game will be a fast-paced and high scoring affair.

Low-Priced Picks

Gordon has been a roller-coaster player over his past few weeks. He has been having big games and followed them up with sub-par performances. If you believe in trends and DvP he is in a good spot tonight. Facing the 25th team in DvP and coming off of a 14.8 FD point performance in his last game. Prior to his 14 point game he had 30.8, 18.4, 34.1, 8.7, 35.7 FD points. I like Gordon in this spot and he should have a low enough ownership percentage with all of the potential value on the slate.

Jodie Meeks (SG), Orlando Magic

Meeks has been starting in place of Evan Fournier and having mixed performances. Tonight his price and minutes have him on my value plays targets. In his last 3 games with over 28 minutes he has produced 18.8, 24.6 and 33 FD points. Tonight we have him at 26.6 FD points so a 7X value. Meeks will likely be a chalkier play tonight, but I can't pass up a 7X potential play tonight with all of the elite options on the board. He is significantly cheaper on FD so he may make the most sense there.
