A lot of good matchups tonight, here are a few.
Tyreke Evans- Evans has put up 40+ fantasy points in two of his last three, and has a great matchup against the Lakers, who allow the most fantasy points to point guards.Evans should have no problem tonight.
John Wall- Wall’s last three game: 55,49,and 51 fantasy points. No reason not to expect the same against the Sixers tonight, who are allowing the third most fantasy points to point guards, and the second most over the last five games. It is safe to say the Sixers struggle against point guards.
DeMar DeRozan- Lowry is likely out again, so the scoring load falls on DeRozan. Which we like, especially when going against the Timberwolves, who are allowing 38 fantasy points a game to shooting guards. I expect DeRozan to continue his hot streak tonight.
Joe Johnson- Joe looks like he is starting to come alive, he put up 33+ fantasy points in his last three games. He also faces the Knicks, who are unlikely to have a solid defender for him.
Kawhi Leonard- Leonard is coming a big game last night, no reason he can’t do the same against Orlando, who are allowing 41 fantasy points a game to small forwards over their last five games.
Gerald Henderson-I still like Henderson after last game, with Kidd-Gilchrist out he’s seeing a bigger load. Detroit is also allowing 38 fantasy points a game to small forwards over the last five too.
Anthony Davis- I love this game for Davis, the only way he doesn’t score 55+ is if it’s a blowout.
Andrea Bargnani- Brooklyn gives up 39 fantasy points a game to power forwards, and Bargnani has had success against them in the past.
Brook Lopez- Lopez should dominate the Knicks inside, he has in the past, and today is his birthday. I’m expecting a big stat line.
Jonas Valanciunas- Minnesota struggles against centers allowing them to score the second most fantasy points. They also are shorthanded at center, and Valanciunas has picked up his game of late.
