HOLLYWOOD IS IN SESSION
Khris Middleton (FD - $7200, DK - $7000)
On top of his last name being Middleton, Khris lands in the middle on a lot of things. He lands in the middle in age between Bledsoe and Giannis. He lands in the middle in height between Bledsoe and Giannis. The Bucks also currently land in the middle of playoff seeding at 5 in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors and Bucks went on a scoring frenzy when they met two games ago. I don’t think this game will be quite as high scoring, but it is coming in from Vegas as a 216.5 over/under. Although in that meeting he only gave us 34.6 FD points and 29.75 DK points, I believe this game will be higher. He was only 7-17 and 0-4 from 3. That should come up in this game.
Kris Dunn (FD - $7900, DK - $7100)
Kris is looking really good in his second year. Over his last 10 games he is averaging 39 DK with a high of 52. On FD over that time he is averaging 35.21 with a high of 54.4. I know he is high on FD, but this is GPP and he is facing the defense of Dennis Smith Jr which means…. No defense.
Serge Ibaka (FD - $5900, DK - $5500)
At 28, he is one of the older guys on the squad and like Francis he owns a slightly lower usage rate versus the two guards on the team. However, at 17.4% I like him if he is getting minutes in the 30s as he did the last time these two teams met. In the last game against the Bucks, Ibaka had 38 minutes, took 19 shots in which he had a season low of 26.3% shooting from the field and still ended up with 39.6 FD points and 35 DK points.
Reggie Bullock (FD - $4500, DK - $4400)
Reese was consistent on the show. He would bully some kids and then learn his lesson and show his heart of gold. Reggie Bullock has been relatively consistent himself over the last 8 games. Scoring over 22 FD points in 5 of those games with an average of 21.39. On DK scoring over 21 in 6 of his last 8. Until more value opens up he is one of my favorite cheaper plays. He is playing minutes in the mid-30s and I expect that to continue. It also helps that this game is up in pace for the Pistons and I think he will do enough against RoCo D to get you at least 20 tonight.
