- FanDuel and DraftKings prices listed respectively.
• Point Guard
Fred VanVleet [ $5,000 / $4,800 ] Over his prior 4 games, Fred VanVleet has been very consistent, as he’s put up 30.7+ FanDuel points, only failing to reach that goal in his last outing, where he only played 22, which was a big hit compared to 29+ minutes. In a meeting with Denver, VanVleet is in a good spot with this match implied for an over/under of 225.5 and an 8.5 point spread.
• Shooting Guard
Dwyane Wade [ $4,800 / $5,300 ] During his last contest, Dwyane Wade was productive over his 26 minutes played, as he went for 13 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 blocks, which was nice to see in just his 2nd game back from a tough hamstring injury. Tonight, Wade will play his buddy LeBron James and former Cavs, who possess a 112.9 defensive rating since the All-Star break.
• Small Forward
Gerald Green [ $3,700 / $4,700 ] With teammates James Harden and Clint Capela being ruled out for rest purposes against the 24-49 Chicago Bulls, this could be a nice spot for Gerald Green to see some extra run and to continue his upward trending play. Recently, Green has been playing 32 minutes per game, to which he has put up 23.6 and 38.4 FanDuel point efforts, respectively.
• Power Forward
Serge Ibaka [ $5,300 / $4,900 ] Going back to the Toronto Raptors, Serge Ibaka remains a relatively inexpensive roster and with Denver’s hardships versus power forwards lately, he’s a strong play for what his matchup entails, as well as his late consistency. While it’s important to temper expectations here, Ibaka should be able to return his value fairly easily and possibly some more.
Cristiano Felicio [ $4,500 / $4,500 ] As mentioned above, Clint Capela is set to rest, which will impact Houston’s inside defense a bit and with Cristiano Felicio seeing 28+ minutes in 4 of his past 5 matches, he’s a solid salary saver for your line(s) on this slate. It’s a possibility that he comes off the bench, as he did last game, which could limit him, but he’ll get decent minutes, regardless.
Extras: Cook, Gordon, Ferrell, Tucker, Turner.
