Good afternoon fellow FanCavers! Happy February! You guys voted and GPP plays was the main winner, so below I will give you some guys with high risk and high reward upside for your tournament lines tonight! Let’s get right into it! I will use Fanduel pricing for reference:
Kyle Lowry ($7,400) – This being a smaller slate. I could see Lowry gaining a bit more ownership than we are used to. There are a few reasons that we will want to target Lowry in our tournament lines this evening. He certainly has flashed that he has 50+ point upside, his price has decreased to a very affordable point, and he is going up against the Wizards who are without John Wall. He is likely to see a lot of Satoransky defense who he should just torture. On top of all of this, Van Vleet has been ruled out for tonight’s contest which should just open up even more minutes in the back court for the Raptors. CJ Miles is questionable and is another status to keep our eyes on moving closer to lock.
Wayne Selden ($3,600) – This play WILL be popular, but for very good reason. If you read my article yesterday chances are you had Selden at least on your radar. Chalmers and Parsons have already been ruled out for tonight’s contest while Ennis and Green remain questionable. Selden hit for over 10x last night in 30 minutes and I expect to see him receive similar run this evening. Selden should be a lock in all formats as he is a must play.
Detroit Guys – I want to lump this all into one category. I’m probably playing a more wait and see approach to see how rotations pan out with new addition Blake Griffin taking the court. I won’t have any Pistons if Blake plays and would limit myself to only using Ish and Drummond, but if Blake were somehow not able to suit up, give me all the Bullock, Tolliver and Stanley Johnson as well!
Malcolm Brogdon ($5,400) – Brogdon should see a bit of a boost with Bledsoe sidelined. I won’t recommend him in cash due to just coming back from injury, but I think he makes a fine tournament option. We’ve seen Brogdon’s upside and want to continue to throw darts at it. On top of all of this Jeff Teague is far from a good defender, ranking towards the bottom spot for all PG’s. If Brogdon starts at the 1 he should see a lot of Teague defense.
I’ll be in the slack to answer questions up until lock
