Monday’s Plays of the Day
With the Thunder fighting for their playoff lives, Westbrook has become an even bigger fantasy monster over his last four outings while averaging 65.8 fantasy points per game.
The Blazers have been incredible and have fought their way to the No. 3 seed to clinch a playoff spot. However, they only lead the 4th seeded Jazz by one game and only two games ahead of the Pelicans, Spurs and Thunder.
The veteran sharpshooter gets a very favorable matchup against a Kings team that tends to give up a lot of wide open jumpers. Mixed with his defensive abilities, Green should be able to put together a solid line and exceed his value.
This guy is on a tear as of late, scoring 20+ points in three straight games. Tonight’s game will be another revenge game against his former team, the Brooklyn Nets. In their last matchup, Kilpatrick finished with 20 points and four rebounds in just 22 minutes of play.
(*If Ginnias Antetakoumpo is ultimately held out of tonight’s game, Khris Middleton would be a top tier shooting guard to own)
Another Spurs player makes our roster. Why? The reason is quite simple, the Spurs are still fighting for their playoff lives as they only hold a one game lead over the Denver Nuggets. Oh, and they’re playing the Kings.
I almost didn’t put him on the roster, but he’s just too good and the matchup is too good that it’s hard not to put him in your lineups. The beef between him and Kanter could bring a little grittiness to this game which could make James a valuable high-end player.
I feel as if most people have forgotten how good Millsap really is, and his worth on the Nuggets has been showcased over the last five games. This is a big game against the Blazers tonight and, in my opinion, a very strong matchup for the veteran forward.
Z-Bo will have a tough matchup trying to defend All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge, but with Skal Labissiere already ruled out of tonight’s game, Randolph could find himself in line for a big chunk of minutes.
(*Ivan Raab is the next option)
The Joker and the Nuggets are in for a big game tonight against the Blazers. Jokic should be the X-Factor in tonight’s game for Denver and don’t be surprised to see this guy go off for a triple-double.
