I cashed GPP last night despite James Harden not scoring as much as I would have liked. It looks like I’ll be firing him up again tonight in both cash and GPP though. I’m looking to cash tournaments for a fourth straight night and I’ll leave you guys my favorite top priced players and values again. Any lineup questions, I am on twitter, @MonstarsDFS.
Damian Lillard @ HOU $9600
I’m going to start this off by letting you guys know there is some serious value at PG tonight and I don’t think Lillard will see any of my lineups for the Main Slate. Patrick Beverly makes his return tonight as well and is known for his defense. Lillard’s usage rate still makes him a GPP worthy play tonight. I plan on paying up for other guys tonight in both cash and gpp but no argument from me if you want to roster Lillard in your gpp lines.
Jerian Grant @ UTA $4000
It appears Grant is set to start at PG again tonight for the Bulls with news breaking that Rajon Rondo is doubtful for tonights game. Grant is a must start in my opinion if he starts at PG. In his first start of the season two nights ago, Grant exploded for 35 FD points. He should have no problem hitting his value tonight with another start.
James Harden vs POR $11700
Giannis Antetokounmpo @ MIA $9600
I’m writing both of these guys up under the top priced section because they are both extremely solid plays tonight and I also think I will find a way to get them both into my lines. Harden underachieved last night but even on an “off night” still put up 41 FD points. Expect a bounce game tonight against Portland in a game that should have lots of scoring.
The Greek Freak is averaging career bests in every stat category this year and and the Milwaukee Bucks offense continues to be run through him. He’s coming off of back to back 50+ FD points and look for him to continue to feast against a banged up Miami Heat roster tonight.
Dion Waiters $4500
If you need a cheap SG in your gpp lineups tonight, Waiters is worth a look. He has often disappeared in games before but still has high scoring potential. The Bucks don’t guard the three ball well and the Heat are extremely banged up right now, offering more chances on the offensive end for Waiters tonight.
Andrew Wiggins vs PHI $7000
Wiggins gets an excellent matchup against the Sixers tonight. Philly ranks near the bottom in most defensive categories, including dead last against small forwards. Current projections for Wiggins have him scoring around 35 FD points tonight, which would easily be him hitting value. Wiggins has been on fire the past 5 games as well, averaging 32.6 points per game in those last 5.
Trevor Ariza vs POR $5300
Ariza has hit value in 6 straight games and I’m looking to go back to him tonight against Portland. The Blazers rank 27th in the NBA in defensive efficiency and have allowed on average 37.7 FD points against SF this season. Ariza should exceed his value again tonight especially considering he’s been playing 35+ minutes most of the season.
I am not paying up for PF tonight. If you do, I’d go Porzingis because I dot’t think he’ll be high owned in GPP. I’m going to leave two value plays at the position tonight that should be considered tonight.
Gorgui Dieng vs PHI $5400
Dieng has been inconsistent as of late, but he gets a great matchup tonight against the 76’ers. Dieng is projected for 30 FD points tonight which is 6X value! He has high scoring potential tonight, making him an excellent GPP play.
Dario Saric @ MIN $4100
I think more people will play Trey Lyles tonight in tournaments so based off of % alone I’d rather go Saric. I believe he has the same amount of upside as Lyles anyways. Saric was moved to the bench but head coach Brett Brown still played him 26 minutes and just as much as starter Ersan Ilyasova. With Saric now running with the second unit, look for him to have more scoring opportunities.
Hassan Whiteside vs MIL $8900
I think Whiteside is a must in cash tonight, and I’ll also be playing him in some of my GPP lines tonight. I have a feeling KAT will be higher owned, but Whiteside is coming off of 4 straight really good games. He’s got a good chance at dropping another 20/20 game tonight against the Bucks. Milwaukee got torched by Roy Hibbert earlier this year, imagine what Whiteside is capable of tonight.
Clint Capela vs POR $5000
Capela has had three straight games with at least 10 rebounds and also has 9 blocks in those last three games. Portland ranks dead last against centers in their last 10 games, and I believe Capela should exceed his value tonight with the possibility of 6 or 7 times value.
Hopefully this article helps you out while you’re constructing your gpp lineups tonight and once again, Good Luck tonight everyone!
