Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
James Harden vs BKN ($11,300) - This could be a monster night for Harden, as he faces one of the worst defenses in the league in the Brooklyn Nets. And with the tempo these teams play at, we could see a score in the 120s. My only concern is the possibility of a blowout, so take a little caution.
DeMarcus Cousins vs LAL ($11,000) - Cousins continues to put up numbers, scoring 50+ fantasy points in eight of his last nine games. Plus, the Lakers give up 48 fantasy points a night to centers and will be playing the second night of a back-to-back.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Trevor Ariza vs BKN ($5,500) - The Nets allow the most fantasy points to small forwards in the league. And, as mentioned above, their defense is not very good. Arzia also has a pretty high floor for his price, scoring at least 20 fantasy points in six straight games,
Tyler Johnson vs WAS ($,5,400) - Johnson has been solid, posting at least 22 fantasy points in seven straight games. Plus, with the all of the injuries in Miami, Johnson and seeing extra minutes and touches.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Dwight Powell vs DEN ($4,500) - If you need a punt play to fill out your lineup, Powell is not a bad choice. He has scored 20+ fantasy points in five straight games.
