We had a killer night last night over at the HQ with a few takedowns! Hope everyone did well also!
Tuesday’s slate features a perfect sized seven game slate with three game totals checking in at 230 or better. Here is what we are dealing with today.
Top of the Key
Paul George ($8,200 DK / $9,300 FD) vs Portland Trailblazers
George checks in at a pretty juicy price tonight with a game total sitting at 231 and the Clippers team total coming in at 120.
He has seen his minutes stabilize around the 30 minute mark as of late and has averaged 20.4 points and 6 rebounds over his past five games. His 28% usage rate over that time does not justify his price tag, especially on DraftKings.
As always, Kawhi Leonard could also be a rest candidate (no indication of that) but if that would happen today, George would be a great play in all formats.
Evan Fournier ($6,200 DK / $6,900 FD) at Washington Wizards
Since Nikola Vucevic went down, Fournier has been rock solid as he has really picked up his scoring as he has been averaging 24.8 points over his last five. He is also logging 35.9 minutes per game during that time frame.
He gets a matchup with Washington that has proven all year it cannot stop any opponent and Orlando comes in at a huge pace up spot. He is not getting many peripheral stats as of late, but if he can grab a few more assists and rebounds because of this, he is in a prime spot to exceed his 34 fantasy points per game tonight.
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.
Kevin Porter Jr. ($3,500 DK / $3,900 FD) vs. Detroit Pistons – Starter Cedi Osman is currently listed as a GTD with an injury, and if he sits and Porter Jr. gets the starting nod we could be looking at a dirt cheap player who could log 30+ minutes.
Danuel House Jr. ($4,600 DK / $5,500 FD) at San Antonio Spurs – Currently listed as a game time decision, should House Jr. suit up tonight he should be able to exceed value in the highest game total on the slate.
Jaxon Hayes ($4,400 DK / $4,500 FD) vs. Dallas Mavericks – Both Derrick Favors and Kenrich Williams are listed as out for tonight’s contest and if Hayes gets the starting nod, I can see using him in any format tonight. Jahlil Okafor drew the start last game, but Hayes started the second half.
