We have a healthy 10 game slate tonight and it is without huge players like James Harden, Lebron James and of course Russell Westbrook. This leaves some interesting scenarios when lineup building tonight, and as of now I can't help but think big. Plays like DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis will certainly be in many lineups, so the key as always in GPP contests is to find value that will hit as well as mid tier plays who can exceed value as well. Tonight we should be able to do this, and in multiple ways which makes this slate very unique and a little challenging.
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.

DeMarcus Cousins is the Kings offense and tonight's matchup is simply too good to pass up. The Trailblazers and their 30th ranked DvP will not be able to slow Cousins down or keep him off of the boards tonight. He does cost $300 more than Anthony Davis on DK, but he should be worth it and with less risk. Tonight a slate without Westbrook and Harden leaves us looking big for our pricey players.
