We are getting into a really nice set of slates here getting nice six to nine game slates. Tuesday features a seven game slate with a great real life matchup between Milwaukee and Toronto.
The Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans feature the highest game total at 239.5, 8.5 points higher than any other game.
Top of the Key
Anthony Davis ($10,300 DK / $10,600 FD) vs. New Orleans Pelicans
If I am venturing into the 10K range today, I think Davis might be my pick slightly ahead of Giannis.
With the highest game total, the Lakers also come in with the highest team implied total at 123.5 and are playing this game up in pace.
Davis has been on a roll as of late topping 50 fantasy points in five of his last six games.
During his last five game stretch, he is averaging a double-double with 29 points and 11.2 rebounds but has also added four block plus steals over that time.
Even with LeBron James, Davis is sporting a 32% usage rate.
Jayson Tatum ($8,800 DK / $8,800 FD) at Portland Trailblazers
With Kemba Walker out again tonight, Tatum is looking more and more like the franchise player he sees himself as.
In his past three games he has tallied 56, 53 and 57 points while attempting 20 plus shots in each of those games.
The Celtics forward has also been logging a ton on minutes in Walker’s absence and his usage rate increases by 4.87% with him off the court. Averaging 30 points and 9 rebounds over his past five games, he has the potential to add the double-double bonus tonight against Portland.
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.
Harry Giles ($4,400 DK / $4,000 FD) at Golden State Warriors – Giles had a career game last time out scoring 35 fantasy points in 32 minutes. I see it highly unlikely he sees that kind of run tonight but he has averaged 25.7 minutes over his past three games.
Coby White ($5,600 DK / $5,200 FD) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder – His price point is getting up there but so has his production. He may not hit 43 and 50 fantasy point performances like his past two times out but you know the kid is going to shoot. He has attempted 22 and 18 shots in his past two games with a banged up Bulls team.
Paul Milsap ($5,100 DK / $5,300 FD) vs. Detroit Pistons – More of a tournament play for me today but Millsap has had some solid games returning from injury. I really like him as a ceiling play tonight in the 5K range.
