-No picks on nights of only three games or less.
- Fantasy points are referring to FanDuel points
Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Paul George vs CLE ($10,000) - Over the last three games, George has been averaging 55.67 fantasy points a game. It seems like he has found his groove in the month of February as he is putting up 30.7 points per game, 5.2 rebounds per game, 4.2 assists per game, and 2.8 steals per game. What makes this matchup even better? The Cleveland Cavaliers allow small forwards to score more fantasy points than any other team in the league.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Steve Adams vs CLE ($7,100) - I’m not sure if there is anyone on the Cavs’ roster that can deal with Adams’s size inside. Based off of what we saw in Boston, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Cavs preferred to play small-ball again tonight. Adams is a pretty safe bet too, as he has scored 30 or more fantasy points in 12 of his last 15 games.
Dwight Powell vs SAC ($6,700) - Powell has hit over 33 fantasy points in three straight games and has a nice matchup against a struggling Sacramento Kings team. Powell is also averaging around 28 minutes a game in the month of February compared his 19 minute season average.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
J.R. Smith vs OKC ($4,600) - Smith looked a lot better against Boston than he has most of this season, so the hope is this new Cavs squad will give him some much needed juice. Plus, Smith has posted 24 or more fantasy points in three of his last five games. I wouldn’t bank on Smith, but he is a solid punt play.
