Today we have an 9 game slate on the main slate. Before I dive into the games I am going to explain the format I will use in my articles. I specialize on Fanduel but I am starting to try out Draftkings and I will see how it goes, so, for now, the articles will be for plays I like on Fanduel. Each article will have my 5 favorite plays, 1 from each position. I will also include my favorite game to target for each slate. I won’t just point out obvious high priced plays either. I will involve value plays as well. If there are any terms you don’t understand you can view my Guide to Daily Fantasy Sports or just tweet me @DfsSwaggyC . Now time to get into tonight’s games.
My Fab Five
Lonzo Ball $7,600
Points Needed to Hit Value= 38
Lonzo Ball is my target at PG for tonight. After coming off his huge night on Saturday against the Bucks, I see him hitting at least 5x value without a problem today against the Suns. This game has the highest projected over/under with it being at 229. In his last game agaisnt the suns on 10/20 he scored 54.7 FDP. I expect him to be highly owned tonight coming off of last games performance but I think it is well worth it. The Suns are the seventh worse team against PGs this year. This is also a very high paced game so that helps out Ball. Look for Lonzo to have a big night, with the possibility of another triple double.
E’Twaun Moore $4,400
Points Needed to Hit Value= 22
E’Twaun Moore is my target at SG. He is receiving an average of 31 minutes a game this year. When you are receiving a player at a sub 5k salary and he is getting over 30 minutes a game you can’t complain. Now when he is facing the worst defense against SGs it gets even better. This game between the Pelicans and Hawks has a pretty decent over/under as well. There are a few good plays at SG tonight so Moore is not the only play at the position but I do believe he has the best match up. Look for Moore to hit Value tonight in this great match up.
Thabo Sefolosha $4,100
Points Needed to Hit Value= 20.5
Thabo Sefolosha is one of my two locks at SF tonight. With Rudy Gobert out for 4-6 weeks the Jazz need someone to take up those minutes and produce. In Gobert’s first game out, Thabo put up 35.3 FDP and stacked the stat sheet. He also received 32 minutes that game. Just like I stated for Moore, a player receiving 30 plus minutes and sub 5k is a solid play. Thabo will play PF today and the Wolves have been one of the worst teams against the 4 spot. Thabo should hit value and he should be a staple in your line ups tonight.
Dario Saric $4,600
Points Needed to Hit Value= 23
Dario Saric is my play at Power Forward tonight. The Clippers rank about right in the middle when it comes to stopping 4s. Saric has been getting extra minutes recently and has been taking advantage of them and producing. We have seen that when Saric is given the chance he produces in bunches and puts up big numbers. I believe he has a safe floor and a high ceiling tonight. This game has a high over/under and should stay pretty close so we don’t need to worry about the blowout factor.
Dewayne Dedmon $5,400
Points Needed to Hit Value= 27
Dewayne Dedmon is the final member of my Fab Five tonight. Center was my hardest position to pick once again. I went with Dedmon for a few reasons. Dedmon is facing the Pelicans. Without looking into details that may seem like a tough match up. Surprisingly the Pelicans rank as the 7th worst team against big men. Dedmon has a solid floor and has potential to put up 40.
My Game of the Night
Denver vs Portland
This game has great value and should stay close since the projected total is 210 with it being a pick em. I will have many pieces from this game in my lines tonight.
