Last week was amazing in NBA as I cashed in GPP every single day. The win streak is at 7 and today we go for 8! There are supposed to be some high scoring games tonight that you will want exposure to. As usual I will write up a stud and a value play I like at each position tonight. Any lineup questions can be asked on twitter, @MonstarsDFS.
John Wall vs PHO $9200
I think rostering John Wall is priority number 1 for me tonight. At 9200, look for Wall to blow past his value tonight against a Suns team that gives up the most points in the NBA (115 per game, yikes) and ranks 4th last against point guards, giving up 46.6 FD points per game. The over/under for this game is currently the highest, sitting at 219. You want exposure to this game tonight in cash and gpp and Wall should be on the top of that list.
Jeff Teague vs GS $6600
Here is my lock the day for both cash and gpp. The Pacers are without PG13 and CJ Miles again, creating way more upside for Teague. Last night Teague went off for 58 FD points and you need to chase this upside against the Warriors, who aren’t very sound defensively. Vegas expects this game to be very high scoring as well, with the o/u sitting at 218.
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs ORL $9600
There are some serious values at shooting guard tonight and I don’t think I will play the Greek Freak in the majority of my lineups, but i definitely want some exposure to him in a few of my gpp lines tonight. His usage rate is through the roof for the Bucks, and he’s been very efficient so far, shooting 49% from the field this year. His contribution to several stat categories can make his FD points jump up extremely quick, keeping him an elite gpp play tonight.
Bradley Beal vs PHO $5700
Another Wizard I want against the pitiful Suns defense is Beal. He’s coming off of a 34 point game, good for 45 FD points. Beal should crush his value tonight at only 5700 and I want exposure to him in tournaments tonight.
Kevin Durant @ IND $9900
You’re honestly playing with fire to break the ice if you want to fade KD tonight. He is clear and away the best and safest play at SF tonight. There is blowout risk, but KD will get his before he sits if tonights game is indeed a blowout. Durant is projected for 10 FD points more than any other SF tonight, which is a huge amount. At the very least, I think Durant’s floor would still be him hitting value tonight.
Glenn Robinson III vs GS $3500
Robinson drew the start last night and crushed value, putting up 30.2 FD points. He will start again tonight and should see around 35 minutes again which should allow him to crush his value at the minimum FD price. Fire him up at this price.
Blake Griffin vs TOR $9100
Like shooting guard, there are some really nice value plays at the position tonight. However, Blake Griffin is on absolute fire this season and makes for an excellent GPP play again tonight. Griffin is averaging 22/9/4 so far this season, and expect his numbers to look similar to those tonight. Toronto also ranks 7th worst against Power Forwards this season, keeping Griffins upside extremely high.
Dwight Powell @ SA $3700
The matchup isn’t ideal against the Spurs, but without Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) and Andrew Bogut (calf) both inactive, Powell should see an increased roll tonight. As long as he plays 20+ minutes as he’s projected for, he should easily hit value. He’s not safe in cash but makes for an intriguing gpp play tonight.
Hassan Whiteside @ PHI $9100
As stated earlier, John Wall is priority number 1 for me tonight. Not far behind Wall is Whiteside for me. I want to take advantage of him going up against the Sixers, who are one of the leagues worst against Centers. The upside is there for Whiteside tonight, and I am expecting one of those 20 points 15 rebounds and 5 blocks games out of him tonight.
Nikola Vucevic @ MIL $6400
If I ultimately fade Whiteside tonight it will be for Vucevic. The Bucks rank dead last against centers, giving up a whopping 51 FD points per game. He has torched the Bucks in years past, and look for him to hit at least value tonight, with his upside increased to roughly 7X value tonight.
Hopefully this article helps you make some gpp lineups tonight and as always, Good Luck tonight DFS nation.
