DAILY DUNKS WITH DOTO
Chris Paul - This is the ultimate revenge game for the fat baby Chris Paul. I think Houston lets him go bananas and he could go for a 50 burger tonight. His price on DK is way too cheap ($8,300) and when I get a chance for a discounted All-Star caliber player in a revenge game, I’m in. Solid play for cash tonight and he has big upside for GPP’s
Dejounte Murray/Patty Mills - I love the Spurs tonight and their back court could be in for a monster night. Murray doesn’t need to score much because he does a little bit of everything on the floor. Mills has been getting 30+ minutes a night and New Orleans almost refuses to play defense. Big night coming for the Spurs team.
Other plays I like: Andrew Harrison or Tim Frazier
I am not in love with anyone at shooting guard tonight. I don’t mind paying up for James Harden but I think Houston let’s tiny baby CP3 have his tonight. DeMar DeRozan is in a good spot tonight and he’s only $8,000 on DK. Tyrone “smoochie” Wallace is still under $5,000 and should have no problem scoring on Cheetos loving Harden. Khris Middleton is always a good play for cash and I like his price tonight. Danny Green is also a sneaky cash game play and getting to face the Pelicans doesn’t hurt.
Kevin Durant - He is under $10,000 tonight and he’s getting to play close to his friends and family. I remember this use to be a big deal for when he played in Washington and tonight the Warriors will probably let him ball out. CP3 and Durant are at discounted prices and in good narratives tonight, I don’t hate having both of them in cash and GPPs tonight.
TJ Warren- I am not scared about playing against Memphis. Warren will get around 35 minutes and get between 30-40 fantasy points. I like that safety in my cash games and this game can be sneaky fantasy gold. This isn’t your typical Memphis team of years past where they play lock down defense. They are awful at stopping every position but center. TJ Warren and Devin Booker are in good spots tonight and I like to play both of them in the same lineup with some Josh Jackson. Stay away from Phoenix bigs tonight (Daniel aka the Judge, I’m looking at you here!)
Other plays I like: Dillion Brooks and Andre Iguodala
LaMarcus Aldridge - My main man is back! I love this matchup and everything about Aldridge tonight. With Paul Gasol being listed as doubtful, LMA could be in for a monster game and he gets either Mirotic or A.D. defense which get the juices flowing! Lock and load tonight.
Draymond Green - He is way too cheap on DK at $7,200. He’s been around $8,000 all season and this allows for him to have some wiggle room to not be as sucky. Washington is an average team for rebounding the ball and Draymond should get us a triple double tonight. Good game to stack with the Warriors being at a discounted price.
Other plays I like: Davis Bertans or Serge Ibaka
Steven Adams- There are two teams that we stack against at center, Dallas and Sacramento. Adams is almost match-up proof and his minutes and production are as steady as anyone in the league. Who’s going to stop him from grabbing 15+ rebounds, (besides Westbrook) Dirk? Give me Steven Adams tonight and just move on to the next position.
Mike Muscala- You need to say money somewhere tonight and he has seen over 24 minutes in the last three games and he has scored 20 fantasy points in two of them. If you need a player under $4,000 I would lean towards Muscala. He’s dumb looking and extremely white but him and Davis Bertans make for one hell of a one two combo tonight.
Other plays I like: Anthony Davis or Jonas Valanaciunas
Dunks of the night: Kevin Durant, LaMarcus Aldridge, Chris Paul and Danny Green
