HOLLYWOOD IS IN SESSION
You The DFS player
Shabazz Napier (FD - $4800, DK - $5400)
There is going to be a lot of debate tonight, but I personally feel Shabazz is the number one option. I will not be playing Delon Wright on FD (maybe in one lineup). Delon should do well tonight but I don’t think he has the same upside as Napier and he is going against all of these Miami guards who can be a bit stingy. Shabazz has shown big numbers in his starts including a high of 45.6 on FD and 45 on DK.
Harrison Barnes (FD - $6800) only
Your buddy your friend Randy. Harrison is just like a good brother or friend. Very consistent. With the little flexibility that is available on FD, I think that will lead me to just playing it safe in at least one spot in my GPPs. He is higher priced than I would like to pay for him, but Dallas is playing up in pace and putrid at defending basically all positions. With the highest over/under of the day. Barnes should be able to get to 35.
Demar DeRozan (FD - $9300, DK - $8300)
Seeing Demar go up a level this year makes me very happy. Seeing Catalina always makes me happy. Are they the same person? He will be in 100% of my DK lineups tonight and most likely all of my FanDuel lineups even though he is priced $1000 more. He gets a 12% usage bump with Lillard out and that also makes me giddy to throw him in my lineups. I know there is some worry about the back to back but if this game is going to stay close he will have to step it up.
Russel Westbrook (FD - $11800, DK - $11500)
Just like Joy, Westbrook nags and nags and nags at us. Should we pay up at point guard or should we not? Depending on if we get news on Jonathan Simmons he will be making 80-90% of my lineups. His floor is so high that is tough to get away from on such a small slate. I will however have some lineups where he is faded to chase glory of fading what will most likely be high ownership. That being said with Delon, VanVleet, and Napier available he could have lower ownership than you would think.
Others I Like
Tyler Johnson (FD - $5400, DK - $5400)
Julius Randle (DK - $6100)
Brook Lopez (FD - $5100, DK - $4600)
Aaron Gordon (FD - $8300, DK - $8600) if Simmons out
