Happy Thanksgiving Eve! We have a massive 14 game slate before the NBA takes a day off tomorrow. We just about have every team going today so there is no shortage of studs to choose from!
The Washington Wizards travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns with a huge 240 game total right ahead of the Atlanta Hawks versus the Milwaukee Bucks at 239.5. Here is an overview of the rest of the slate.
Top of the Key
Changing it up a bit today, going with a 3-2 Zone!
Jonathan Isaac ($7,500 DK / $8,000 FD) at Cleveland Cavilers
I really like Isaac tonight because of his increased opportunity with Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic missing tonight’s game for the Magic. With those two off the court, Isaac sees a 10.66 fantasy point per game increase and almost a 4% usage bump.
Isaac has scored 45 more fantasy points in two of his least three games including 51 against the Indiana Pacers last Saturday. Cleveland is middle of the pack defending the power forward this season as they allow an average of 33.1 FPPG.
Lou Williams ($6,900 DK / $7,700 FD) and Montrezl Harrell ($7,000 DK / $7,800 FD) at Memphis Grizzlies
As expected, Kawai Leonard is resting his old man’s knees on the back end of the Clippers back-to-back tonight, which means the Lou Williams/Montrezl Harrell combo is in play for tonight.
Here are the bumps both players receive with Leonard off the court this season.
I am not too worried about their minutes on the back-to-back as both players got reasonable run with Williams logging 33 minutes and Harrell played 28.
Here are a few players and situations I will be keeping my eye that could be in good spots depending on how news breaks or players I will look into a little throughout the day.
Malcom Brogdon ($6,800 DK / $8,300 FD) vs. Utah Jazz – Too cheap on DraftKings again. FanDuel actually dropped his price by $200. He seen 30 minutes of action his first game back so he is clearly not on a minutes limit.
Ricky Rubio ($5,500 DK / $6,800 FD) vs. Washington Wizards – It looks like Rubio will be able to give it a go tonight and is in a dream matchup for his return against the Washington Wizards. The game total is at 240 so sign me up for this tonight!
