Well, we have a jam packed 11 game slate tonight as a majority of teams will be playing their last game before the All-Star break. Luka Doncic should be returning to action tonight so we have all the stars on tonight’s slate.
Portland is on the second half of their back-to-back tonight but are also featured in the highest game total for the night at 234.5 while they travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies.
De’Aaron ($7,700 DK / $8,200 FD) at Dallas Mavericks
Fox has picked up his play as of late and has a great matchup tonight against Dallas. The Mavericks are ranked 29th against the point guard position over the past 20 games, allowing 40.93 fantasy points per contest.
I like the price point for the usage the Kings Point guard as over his past five games he is sporting a 30% usage rate and averaging 20.2 points and 6.8 assists.
Fox also torched Dallas for 57 fantasy points earlier in the year and could replicate that tonight.
Andre Drummond ($9,400 DK / $10,200 FD) vs. Atlanta Hawks
It’s really hard to say what Drummond we will get in his second game with Cleveland. Will we get sleep walking Drummond from the Pistons or will we get a rejuvenated Drummond with his new team.
In his first game with his new team, he shot 7 of 17 with 14 rebounds, 1 block and 2 steals in just 29 minutes. He was on pace to play 30+ but the game was well out of hand in the fourth quarter against the Clippers.
Tonight should stay closer as they are only two point underdogs and have a 116.5 team implied total. The Cavaliers are also way up in pace tonight at +6 and the total pace for the game is set at 106.5.
I will take a shot on Drummond tonight in tournaments as I like his matchup with the Hawks.
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.
P.J. Washington ($4,400 DK / $4,900 FD) at Minnesota Timberwolves – I really like his upside for the price tonight. He logged 36 minutes last game and Charlotte is in a very favorable spot tonight against Minnesota.
Serge Ibaka ($6,300 DK / $6,400 FD) at Brooklyn Nets – He missed last game due to illness and if he suits up tonight has an excellent matchup against the Nets.
Malik Beasley ($4,800 DK / $4,900 FD) and Juan Hernangomez ($3,900 DK / $3,900 FD) vs. Charlotte Hornets – Both have really seen a minute increase since joining their new team and this should continue tonight. They have combined for 48 shots taken in their first two games with Minnesota.
