-Stats are based off FanDuel rules
Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Andrew Wiggins vs SAC ($8,600) - Wiggins is riding a hot stretch right now, as he has scored 27 or more points in eight straight games.This scoring streak has helped Wiggins fantasy wise, as he has posted over 35 fantasy points in seven straight games, and in three of those seven he surpassed 49 fantasy points. Plus, the Kings have struggled against small forwards of late, allowing them to average 44 fantasy points a night over their last five games. There is plenty of reason to play Wiggins tonight.
DeMar Derozan vs NYK ($8,500) - DeRozan has been carrying the Raptors in Lowry’s two game absence. Not only did the Raptors win both of those games, but DeRozan posted over 45 fantasy points in both of them. And it looks like Lowry could miss tonight too, so these numbers should continue against a poor Knicks defense.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Myles Turner vs HOU ($6,500) - Turner is a solid option to consider tonight as he has had over 30 fantasy points in five of his last six games. The Rockets are also pretty friendly to centers, allowing them to average 50 fantasy points a night. As well, this should be a fast paced game with plenty of scoring, so there is plenty of fantasy potential.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Down)
Cory Joseph vs NYK ($4,400) - Like DeRozan, Joseph has taken advantage of Lowry’s absence, posting over 25 fantasy points in back to back games. And as mentioned, the Knicks are not good on the defensive end, which means plenty of opportunities for Joseph.
