Happy humpday! Hopefully some of you took my GPP advice from yesterday, Brook Lopez and D’Angelo Russell helped me take down some smaller GPP’s last night. Tonight we have a full slate. I will leave you with an expensive GPP play and a cheap play tonight for each position. Any questions for lineups you can find me on twitter, @MonstarsDFS
John Wall @ PHI $8900
From a GPP standpoint, I like Wall over Westbrook tonight. Not only is he almost $2000 cheaper, but the ownership should be lower too which is what you should look for when constructing a tournament style lineup. The Wizards are without Bradley Beal tonight which should increase Wall’s already high usage rate. Philly also struggles against point guards and I don’t think there is blowout risk in this one. I’ll take Wall over Westbrook tonight in tournaments but NOT CASH!
Jamal Murray vs PHO $3700
With Gary Harris getting hurt again, Murray stepped up last game and scored a career high 19 points. The Nuggets just signed Alonzo Gee today which could seriously effect Murray’s playing time so you’ll want to see if Gee is eligible to play tonight and if he is, look into how many minutes he’s expected to get. As of now if Gee doesn’t play, Murray is an extremely cheap punt that could see 25+ minutes again tonight.
James Harden @ OKC $11500
I’m playing Harden in all formats tonight. Hate on him for not playing defense all you want, but the man is one of the most, if not the most talented player offensively in the NBA. He’s ripped off 7 straight 50+ FD points and I don’t see him stopping tonight. His floor right now is pretty much 25 points and 10 assists which I’ll take every night out of him. Expect another 50+ FD game from Harden which would be once again hitting his value.
Seth Curry @ BOS $4200
If you need a punt at shooting guard tonight Curry has played 30+ minutes in three straight games and has gone over 35 FD points in two of those games. He’s been pretty inconsistent this season but if you like chasing points Curry is your punt at the position. Personally, I think I’m going to pay up for a more expensive SG tonight to pair with Harden.
LeBron James @ IND $9900
I don’t think you need to pay up at the position tonight in cash, but I’m all for playing the King again tonight in tournaments. He’s still priced way too cheap and his floor is him hitting value. Expect LeBron to continue to score around 50 FD points again tonight, and his ownership shouldn’t be too high in tournaments either.
Otto Porter @ PHI $6300
Porter has been pretty inconsistent this season but without Bradley Beal again tonight, I expect Porter to be more involved offensively tonight against a Sixers team that has proven they don’t always play good defense. Porter has the potential to not his value or literally double his value, making him an intriguing GPP play tonight.
Paul Millsap vs MIL $7400
Anthony Davis is clearly the best option but I’m not paying up for him tonight. Millsap typically hoops against the Bucks and he should be low owned in tournaments tonight. I went to a Bucks Hawks game last season where Millsap dropped 60 FD points on my squad. It also sounds like the Hawks will be without Dwight Howard tonight. If he’s out, I love Millsap for tournaments and he will most likely make my GPP lines.
Mike Muscala vs MIL $4000
Another Hawks PF here but this play is directly effected by whether Howard plays or not tonight. If he’s out, Muscala will start at Center and should see a nice increase in minutes. Do not roster him if Howard ends up playing but if he’s out, he makes for a great punt option at PF.
All of the top Centers are sketchy plays tonight with either bad match ups, or injured players. I advise saving the money at the position tonight and look to pay up for guys at other positions tonight.
Steven Adams vs HOU $5100
In games against fast paced offenses, Kanter takes a back seat to Adams. Houston will look to run and gun tonight against the Thunder meaning Adams should play a good chunk of minutes tonight. If he gets to 30+ minutes tonight like I expect, he should contribute to your lineup and exceed his value tonight.
Hopefully this article can help you fill holes in your GPP lineups tonight! Good luck again tonight everybody!
