Here are some plays for the Sunday night games, enjoy.
Damian Lillard- This matchup looks like money for Lillard, the Kings struggle defending point guards, but even more in their last five games. They are giving 47 fantasy points a game to point guards.
D.J. Augustin- With Westbrook out, Augustin will start, and he has showed he is a capable starter when needed. Add in the fact KD is out, they will need Augustin to step up. Then throw in the matchup against the Lakers, I have no issue choosing Augustin.
Dion Waiter- Waiters will need to help in the scoring department with Westbrook and KD out, and should see plenty of minutes. Plus its against the Lakers.
Draymond Green- Green has been put up back-back, 40 point fantasy performances and with this matchup against Boston, I would not be surprised if we saw another. The Celtics have struggled against small forwards in their last five, giving up the second most fantasy points to them.
Harrison Barnes- Isn’t going to blow it up, but he has a nice matchup. He also has seen some minutes at power forward and could see more playing time. Keep an eye on him.
David West- West gets the Sixers, who really have no one to deal with his size or toughness inside, Even if he doesn’t put up a ton of points, the rebounds will be there.
Serge Ibaka- Ibaka has been a little disappointing, but he has no option to step up with the Thunder’s top guns injured. He also gets a matchup with the Lakers frontcourt, who should have trouble containing him.
LaMarcus Aldridge+Robin Lopez- Cousins is out and the Kings have already had trouble dealing with bigs, both of these guys could have above average games.
Alexis Ajinca- Ajinca is a nice play with Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson out, the Pelicans have no choice, but to play him. Denver doesn't have depth at center and it has shown. Over their last five games they have given up 57 fantasy point on average to centers.
