Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Joel Embiid vs HOU ($8,400) - If Embiid is active tonight, he is a great play against the Rockets Over the Rockets last five games, they are allowing centers to average 54 fantasy a night. Embiid will also have some extra motivation after now being selected to the All-Star team. And to top it off, this game is on national television.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Robert Covington vs HOU ($5,600) - Covington's play has been a component of the Sixers recent success, as he has posted 25 fantasy points or more in four straight games. The Rockets are also allowing small forwards to average over 42 fantasy points a night over their last five games.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Courtney Lee vs CHA ($4,200) - Lee makes a solid punt play tonight, as he has posted over 21 fantasy points in three straight games. As well, he will likely have some extra energy facing his former team.
High-Risk, HighReward Players
Kevin Love vs BKN ($7,900) - Loves is coming off back-to-back big games (45FPS, 47FPS) and faces one of the worst defenses in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets. A team that also allows power forwards to average over 45 fantasy points a night. So, what’s the risk? The Cavs will come out firing after three consecutive losses and could end this game before halftime.
Dion Waiters vs CHI ($6,200) - Waiters is cooking right now. He has posted over 40 fantasy points in three straight games and has hit some clutch shots for the Heat. But, he is still Dion Waiters. So at $6,200, he could easily ruin your lineup.
