Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs NYK ($10,700) - Giannis already had a great game against the Knicks this week, scoring 53 fantasy points against them on Wednesday night (including a game-winner). The Knicks don’t really have an answer for him (not many teams do), so I don’t see why he can’t put up another big performance against them at home. Plus, hitting a game-winner always adds to your confidence.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Marcin Gortat vs MIN ($6,500) - Gortat has posted over 32 fantasy points in four straight games. The Timberwolves have also allowed centers to average 56 fantasy points a night over their last five games. So, Gortat should be able to have some nice value tonight.
Ersan Ilyasova vs BOS ($5,800) - The Celtics have struggled with power forwards their last five games, allowing them to average over 48 fantasy points a night. As well, Ilyasova has posted over 26 fantasy points in four straight games.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Aaron Gordon vs HOU ($4,800) - Gordon could be a solid option if you need a small forward to fill out your roster. He has posted over 24 fantasy points in four of his last five games.
