-Stats are based off FanDuel rules
Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs IND ($10,000) - Before the Bucks got embarrassed in OKC, GIannis dropped 60+ fantasy points in back to back games. I’m expecting something similar in a bounce-back game tonight against the Pacers. Plus, the Pacers aren’t the lockdown defensive team they were a few seasons ago.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Jeremy Lin vs ORL ($6,000) - I don’t mind playing Lin at $6,000 at all. He sees steady minutes, gets plenty of touches, and the Nets play at the fastest pace in the league. Not to mention, he has posted at 28 fantasy points in five of his last six games.
Aaron Gordon vs BKN ($5,700) - Gordon has some big time potential tonight. He has put up 50+ fantasy points in two of his last three games, including a contest against the Nets last Saturday. With the Nets options at power forwards, their defense, and their pace, I could see Gordon going off once again.
Gorgui Dieng vs POR ($5,600) - Dieng could have a big night against Portland’s shorthanded frontcourt. Especially when you consider what he has done lately, posting 26 fantasy points or more in six of his last seven games. So, Dieng is a pretty safe play with big game potential.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Down)
Courtney Lee vs WAS ($4,600) - Lee's production has been a little more steady with all of the injuries in New York. He has posted 23 fantasy points or more in five of his last seven games. Lee won’t drop 40 fantasy points, but he should be able to hit around value.
