- Averaged 17-18 Season stats after player’s names.
- FanDuel and DraftKings prices listed respectively.
• Point Guard
Terry Rozier – 10/2/4 [ $7,000 / $7,400 ] Going to the mid-tier section, Terry Rozier finds himself in a plus matchup against the Kings, who have allowed opponents to shoot an average of 47.2% from the field (25th) and 38.5% from three-point range (30th). Sacramento also possesses the 29th ranked defense in the entire association, as they own a terrible 109.7 team defensive rating.
Quinn Cook – 6/1/1 [ $5,600 / $5,600 ] Tonight, Golden State will not have the luxury of any of their All-Stars being available to play, which should allow Quinn Cook to be inserted back into the starting lineup and play close to, if not 40 minutes, in this one. Over his last 4 contests, Cook has been fantastic for the Warriors, as he’s put up a solid 33.6+ FanDuel points in 3 of those games.
• Shooting Guard
James Harden – 30/8/5 [ $11,800 / $11,600 ] Once again, James Harden will be without Chris Paul, which will boost him in both his potential minutes and usage and although he hasn’t been great without him (recently), this is a good spot against the Hawks. In his previous 2 matches, Harden holds a monster 39.2% usage and while it’s a very small sample size, it should carry on, here.
Bradley Beal – 23/4/4 [ $7,700 / $8,100 ] Although John Wall hasn’t been officially ruled out for tonight’s match (time of writing), Bradley Beal is in a nice scenario regardless, as he put up 36/7/5 along with 3 steals and 2 blocks in the last game with New York. While it’s to be noted that won’t likely happen again, the Knicks allow opponents to shoot an average of 37.0% from deep (23rd).
• Small Forward
Paul George – 21/3/5 [ $7,900 / $7,700 ] Priced just under the 8K mark, on both sites, Paul George is a bargain, in what should be a very competitive matchup versus the Trailblazers, who have been vulnerable to small forwards at times, throughout the year. This contest owns an over/under of 216 (LIVE) with only a 3 point spread in favor of the Thunder, which allows for a lot of time.
Jayson Tatum – 13/1/5 [ $6,500 / $6,500 ] For similar reasons to his teammate Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum enters the articles, but could see some regression, as Jaylen Brown is probable; however, he’s still in a targetable spot and should continue his hot play. During his last 3 games, Tatum has played well and will have to do so without the help of his teammate Marcus Morris, tonight.
• Power Forward
Al-Farouq Aminu – 9/7 [ $6,600 / $6,000 ] Few players have been more consistent than Al-Farouq Aminu has over his previous 3 matches, as he’s gone for 42.6, 43.6 and 46.5 FanDuel points in that span, while scoring 16+ points and grabbing 8+ rebounds. All of those games were considered, for the most part, tough spots and against Carmelo Anthony, Aminu shouldn’t have trouble.
Derrick Favors – 12/7/1 [ $5,800 / $5,500 ] With opposing power forward Draymond Green having now been ruled out, Derrick Favors is in a favorable matchup with versus a young Golden State front court (Bell and Looney), which will help him out a bit. Favors’ past 2 matches were highlighted by his scoring, as he’s put up 19+ points per game and should have a nice performance.
Clint Capela – 14/11/1 [ $7,100 / $7,000 ] Throughout the season, Atlanta has been a favorable matchup to attack with opposing centers and when the Hawks played Sacramento, they gave up a huge 55.7 effort to Kosta Koufos and will now face Clint Capela. Atlanta gives opponents an average of 44.4 points in the paint per game (14th) and ranks 29th in defensive rebound percentage.
Enes Kanter – 14/10 [ $6,400 / $6,100 ] News broke earlier that teammate Kyle O’Quinn would not suit up, which should afford Enes Kanter some more playing time and in his past 2 outings, he has played 30+ minutes and had back to back double doubles. In the previous meeting with Washington, Kanter put up 24 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists and a block, across 34 minutes played.
