-No picks on nights of only four games or less.
-Stats are based off Fanduel rules
Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs HOU ($10,600) - This seems like a game that will have plenty of pace, giving Giannis plenty of opportunities to rack up fantasy points. Something he has done all season long. Giannis has posted over 40 fantasy points in 22 of his last 24 games, including a high of 71.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Al Horford vs NYK ($7,400) - Horford has quietly had a really consistent stretch, posting over 29 fantasy points in eight straight games. The Knicks have also struggled with centers all season long, allowing them to average just under 50 fantasy points a night.
Nicolas Batum vs POR ($7,400) - Batum has had 31 fantasy points or more in 12 of his last 14 games, making him a pretty safe bet, just like Horford (knock on wood). Plus, Batum should have some extra juice tonight facing his former team.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Sergio Rodriguez vs TOR ($4,100) - Rodriguez should see a boost in his minutes with TJ McConnell sidelined. So at $4,100, he should be able to at least hit value. Plus, the Sixers as a team have been playing better of late.
