Not a ton of games tonight, but here are some players I like for tonight.
Chris Paul- Paul should give us another great performance, he has scored 44+ fantasy points in his last 4 games. Paul understands he needs to do a little more with Blake out. Plus, it is a friendly matchup against Minnesota, who gives up 41 fantasy points a game to point guards.
Tyreke Evans- Evans has been great when running point, the Pelican are also dealing with a few injuries. So Evans knows he needto produce, and he has. The Mavericks also don’t really have an answer him and have allowed point guards to score 40 fantasy points a game.
Demar Derozan- Derozan hasn’t produced anything spectacular of late, but tonight that could change. He gets a matchup against the Sixers and Lowry might be out again, so a bigger load for him.
Eric Bledsoe- Bledsoe put up a bad performance in San Antonio, after a game earlier scoring 62 fantasy points. I don’t think he puts up two bad games in a row. The Heat might not be the best matchup , but they could be shorthanded tonight. So I think Bledsoe bounces back.
Luol Deng- Deng has been a hard player to predict, one night it seems like he can score 30 fantasy points a night easily. Then the next thing you know he hasn’t hit 20. So approach Deng with caution, but he does have a nice matchup with the Suns. Two things favor Deng,the tempo the Suns play and the fact they have allowed 40 fantasy point a game to small forwards over their last five games.
Draymond Green- Green has scored 38+ fantasy points in his last three games and tonight should be no different. He is the type of player that can cause the Nets problems. He also has something to prove after Charles Barkley said he was too small.
Dante Cunningham- Cunningham is a nice value, with the Pelicans frontcourt banged up. He has seen 30+ minutes in the last 4 games. The Pelicans have no choice, but to play him.
Thaddeus Young- This will be Young’s first game in Brooklyn, so he should have a little more energy. He also has had some time to spend with the team, so I expect his role to only increase. Plus, this is the kind of game, the Nets will need Young for matchups.
Hassan Whiteside- Like I have said before Whiteside’s role is only getting bigger with the injury to Bosh. Now Birdman, might be out tonight look for Whiteside to have a nice night against a small Suns team.
DeAndre Jordan- Jordan has been amazing with no Blake Griffin, that will only continue tonight. The Wolves don’t have an answer for Jordan. They give up 47 fantasy points a game to centers.
