Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Dame Lillard vs NYK ($9,000) - Dame has been a monster of late, posting over 40 fantasy points in six of his last seven games, including over 54 fantasy points in his last two games. The Knicks on the other hand, aren’t a good defensive team and will be playing the second night of a back-to-back. Given the situation, it looks like Dame could have another 50 fantasy point performance.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Brook Lopez vs PHX ($7,200) - Lopez is playing some solid basketball, as he has posted 31 fantasy points or more in his last seven games. As for the Suns, they have been terrible against centers their last five games, allowing them to average over 64 fantasy points a night. This combination could lead to a huge game for Lopez.
Marquese Chriss vs BKN ($5,100) - I think Chriss is an easy play tonight against the Nets. He has posted over 25 fantasy points in four straight games, including a 39 fantasy points performance. As well, the Nets are allowing power forwards to average over 48 fantasy points a night. Other than Lopez, the Nets frontcourt is on the smaller side, giving Chriss opportunities to make plays above the rim.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Down)
Cory Joseph vs MIA ($5,000) - Kyle Lowry is still out, so Joseph is still receiving a good portion of the point guard minutes. As well, he has posted over 23 fantasy points in four straight games. I don't’ think Joseph is going to explode but he is a nice player fill out a lineup.
J.J. Reddick vs DAL ($4,400) - Reddick is another guy you could use to fill out your lineup, as he has posted over 20 fantasy in five of his last seven games. There isn’t a ton of upside with Reddick, but there isn’t a ton of risk either.
