NBA Core Four 12/08
Boogie, Boogie, Boogie, cant you see tonight’s the night you win us money! Helloooooo everybody! We have an awesome slate today with some great spots. As you can see by my opening line Demarcus (Boogie) Cousins is my favorite play on the board. I will get more into that later. Lets break down a solid core for tonight!
Kemba Walker PG CHI @ CHA (FD $8,700/DK $8,100)
Kemba has been playing very well as of late, especially at home. He is coming off of back to back over 40 fantasy point games and is going into one of the best matchups possible tonight vs the Chicago Bulls who are 3rd worst in the league against point guards on the season. They are allowing an average of over 48 fantasy points to the position this far. What’s even better is the last time these two teams faced each other Kemba put up over 60 Fantasy points. With 47 real points 6 rebounds and 5 assists he had a stellar game. Not only that, but it was in Chicago… So the matchup is even better since he will be at home tonight since he performs better there.
Jonathan Simmons SF DEN @ ORL (FD $6,100/DK $5,600)
Simmons is in a great spot tonight as Evan Fournier will be out for 2 games. That bumps Simmons usage up and he has a good matchup vs the Denver Nuggets in Orlando. Last time he faced the Nuggets he scored 18 points had 3 rebounds and 3 assists with 1 steal for 26 fantasy points. He comes in a little pricier on FD than on DK but I feel he easily has the potential to hit value and even more in this matchup. Simmons usage with Fournier off the floor is an astounding 30%. He will have many opportunities to score tonight so lock him in your lineups!
Jeff Green PF CLE @ IND (FD $4,500/DK $4,200)
Jeff green has been very consistent over the last 6 games. Coming off the bench he has been averaging 25 minutes of play per game and getting a fantasy point per minute per game as well. At his price and averaging 25 fantasy points per game over the last 6 he should easily hit value as he is facing one of the worst teams in the league against power forwards. His chemistry with the team whether its starters or bench players has been very impressive. I look forward to watching him tonight and watching the points go up up and up.
Demarcus Cousins C SAC @ NO (FD $12,000/DK $11,800)
Demarcus (Boogie) Cousins is a MUST PLAY tonight. He is facing his former team in the Sacramento Kings which last time they faced each other he DOMINATED the floor. he had 41 points 23 rebounds 6 assists 1 block and1 steal for almost 80 fantasy points on FD. Anthony Davis was out that game and it looks like Davis will also be out tonight too but there is no official word yet. Even is Davis does play, Boogie is still an elite option and will be all over my lines tonight. The Sacramento Kings are 5th worst against centers and Cousins is no average center so this matchup along with the revenge narrative is a great reason to lock and load him in your lineups.
Good luck tonight! If you have any questions make sure and message us on twitter @FanCaveDFS
