HOLLYWOOD IS IN SESSION - 'MY GIANT'
We have a small 3 game slate tonight and looking at the field of choices there is only one question I am asking myself. Who will be My Giant? We have to decide is it going do be big Joel? Porzingod? The Brow? Kitty KAT? The Philly Phenom? The man known as Boogie? Tonight, you will be Sam Kamin (Billy Crystal) and you will make that choice.
FanDuel & DK
Joel Embiid (FD - $10700, DK - $9900)
As much as I like a lot of centers tonight I don’t see how Embiid is not the play. With RoCo out he owns a 38.7% usage rate. He was rested yesterday, and I am sure he is ready to shake up Boogie. This is going to be fun to watch. This game has the highest projected point total for the night and both teams are projected up in pace. He has shown 90-point upside and tonight he has to get you at least 60, right?
Ben Simmons (FD - $10300)
I don’t know what’s going on with the other two at this position, so it makes this easy. If I knew that AD would be getting 35 or more minutes I would be going to him but still dealing with his injury it is too much up in the air for me to feel good. And Porzingis? He hasn’t looked like he wants to do anything good for us in a while. I liked playing him last night and it was garbage. Holiday and Rondo will not be able to stop Ben Simmons tonight. The Pelicans rank as one of the worse teams in the NBA and I expect both Simmons and Embiid to capitalize on this.
Karl Anthony Towns (DK - $8700)
So maybe we can take last game as a positive when KAT got us 53.5 points. He is cheap and for good reason, but this is a matchup that should be in his favor. Dallas ranks 26th in the league in rebounding. Towns season DK average is 41.3 points. We need more but it does make me a lot less scared of this play. On more than 2 days rest Towns gets a 4.2-point boost as well.
Jarrett Jack (FD - $5200, DK - $4500)
