NBA has been great to us over here at Fancave so far this year and we’re looking to keep that rolling tonight with a 11-game slate! You know what they say…haters gonna hate, so we’re just gonna keep doing our thing and providing y’all with great content!
* I’m writing this article mid afternoon and there’s a couple injury situations to monitor.
– Justin Holiday
– Steve Adams
Make sure to follow the @Fancave account on twitter and me as well @FanCaveCody1 . You can tweet me questions before lock tonight! Value Plays I like tonight are below👇🏼
I personally like paying up at PG tonight, but if I was looking for some value I’d look at
Patty Mills $4,500 – Mills has taken over for the Spurs at PG and getting on average high 20’s for minutes. Mills is an excellent 3p shooter as we all know and Pop seems to like it better when the veteran is running the show. He gets a good matchup with Min tonight and he’ll get plenty of opportunity to hit value.
JJ Redick $5,000 – Redick is in a great spot tonight because of pace and matchup. Phi vs Lal has the highest O/u on the slate and should be the most popular as far as player selection. Redick has the freedom to shoot when he wants making his $5,000 price tag valuable. Before his last game where he put up 18 fps he had hit 25+ in 4/5 games.
Buddy Hield $4,600 – Buddy is slowly adjusting into his role for the Kings. They are a poor basketball team and he doesn’t get near as many minutes as he should, but he produces. He’s been above 21 fps in his last 6 games which is what we’re looking for tonight. He has a great matchup against another bad team tonight (Atl).
OG Anunoby $3,200 – If Powell is out again Anunoby becomes a great punt option. He played 29 minutes last night, started and scored 23 fps.
Bobby Portis $5,300 – since returning from his suspension Portis has been great coming off the bench for the Bulls. Each game he’s played more minutes than the last (including 29 last game). I think that’s the spot he sticks around in the future because of how he’s been playing. He’s been averaging 34 fps thru his 1st 3 games and he has a great matchup tonight. Lock him in and expect 5x + Value tonight!
Jerami Grant $4,700 – Grant becomes a really intriguing option if Melo sits again tonight. Because he should get the start and it looks like Adams will miss the game as well so OKC will be really short handed in the front court. At $4,700 he only needs 23.5 fps to hit Value and will get plenty of minutes if both guys sit. Plus he has a great matchup!
* I’m looking to spend up Center tonight, but if Adams is out then Robin Lopez $5,400 becomes an interesting play
