Names and Games:
Here are the Games and the Names I’ll be looking at, when building my line-up for today:
- ATL vs NY: It’s that same theme. Knicks defense continues to invite great match-ups and this afternoons game is no different. This is a high ceiling game for Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap and Dennis Shreoder of the Hawks. The Knicks do warrant a look as Lance Thomas is out with an injury, and Porzingis is a game time call, so consider Kuzminkas as a cheap option with a good upside. If KP doesn’t go, Derek Rose gets a boost in his value as well.
- POR vs WAS: This should be high octane right after the tip-off. Both teams like to push the ball and the the offense is all about the backcourt. Both big men in this game, Marticn Gortat and Plumlee deserve a look. They can both put up solid numbers in this game. Of course Lillard / McCallum and Wall / Beal are primed to have good numbers in a high scoring game
- PHI vs MIL: The 76ers are suddenly an exciting team full of DFS options. None of them are a sure thing, but Embiid is as close as you can come to one, and Covington is a nice mid-price option for your line-up as well. Defensively, they continue to have their issues, and that makes it a great opportunity for The Greak Freak to shine in this game, but don’t forget about Jabari Parker as well in this one.
Going Cheap: Midaugas Kuzminskas (NYK)
Going Big: G. Antitokounmpto (MIL)
