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.

This should be one of the better games on the slate, and will likely be game stackable if you can scrape up enough value to pay the price. Both sides have some good matchups, and all of the Cavs big three should be in play. I am liking Kevin Love the most of the big three however for both his price, recent production (67, 47.5,12.5, 39.5, and 52 DK points in his last five) and the Pacers likely being without Thad Young will not be able to beat Love on the boards.

The Lakers are considerably weak against bigs and Drummond should be in a fantastic spot tonight in this one. The last time he faced the Lakers he produced 48.25 DK points, and he should be able to come close to similar output tonight. We have him projected for 42.5 DK points, but I can see him exceeding this. Over his last five Drummond has produced 47.5, 26.75, 44.5, 29.5 and 69 DK points.

Teague is in a good matchup tonight against the Cavaliers who have struggled against Point Guards and Small Forwards over the past few weeks mightily, Teague should be able to push tempo, and keep up with Kyrie Irving as well. The game should remain close enough according to Vegas and Teague and Paul George will be in solid spots. I prefer Teague in GPP's and his ownership should be low enough to both meet value and save money.

Wade has been a usage monster without Jimmy Butler, and even if Jimmy Buckets returns tonight Wade will need to be a big part of this offense to try and hang with the Warriors. If Klay Thompson in fact misses the game it will also give a boost to Wade as well. Wade over his last 5 games has been a 4x Lock with 6X upside (49, 38.25, 41.25, 34.5, 29 DK points). His price has jumped $800 on DK, but I still like him plenty in GPP's tonight. If Butler is out he will be a near lock for me.

Low-Priced Picks

Willie Cauley-Stein (PF/C), Sacramento Kings

This one was a toss up between Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos, but I am leaning towards Cauley-Stein. Especially if this game becomes a blowout, which is very likely. Big Willy will see more run in this scenario and should easily meet value if he plays more than his projected 20 minutes. No DeMarcus Cousins will boost value for other Kings such as Darren Collison so value is here, but it is a high risk for blowout. At this price though you can't pass it up, and if you really want to catch all of the minutes play both Cauley-Stein and Koufos and load up elsewhere.

Nelson will likely be starting and playing 30 plus minutes once again in what should be an up-tempo game. The Hawks are notoriously vulnerable against point guards and Nelson should be able to attack. He is very cheap and when he was getting full workload his ability to score close to a Fantasy point a minute was there. Tonight we like him to do the same with a projection of 32.3 DK points.
