Six-Game Slate

Chicago Bulls @ Brooklyn Nets
Miami Heat @ Milwaukee Bucks
Memphis Grizzlies @ Dallas Mavericks
San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors
Boston Celtics @ Portland Trail Blazers
Los Angeles Clippers @ Sacramento Kings

Point Guards

Dennis Smith Jr., Portland Trail Blazers $4,400

Both Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons are dealing with injuries, which means the Trail Blazers will have to rely on Dennis Smith Jr. to run the offense. Here's the secret, the Trail Blazers' offense is to get the ball to CJ McCollum, so assists should come easy for Smith.

Alex Caruso, Chicago Bulls $5,700

In November, Caruso had a solid month, averaging 8.9 points, 4.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and two steals. He averaged 12.2 points, 4.8 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.4 steals in his last five games.

Tonight, he has a decent matchup against the Nets, who allow 23.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game to point guards this season.

Shooting Guards

Jordan Poole, Golden State Warriors $6,700

Jordan Poole has been on a crazy tear lately, averaging 23.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists in his last six games. Now he has a great matchup against Derrick White and the Spurs.

Poole scored 20 points last time he was guarded by White, and Poole should probably hang another 20-plus game on White again.

Eric Bledsoe, Los Angeles Clippers $5,100

Bledsoe didn't have a spectacular night against the Kings last time they played them. He scored eight points, three rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

Tonight he'll have a chance to improve those numbers against Sacramento. The Kings allow most fantasy points to shooting guards, allowing 24.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, and five assists per game to SGs.

Small Forwards

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics $9,700

Tatum ended November with a dud with an eight-point performance but was able to bounce back with a 26 point game against the Sixers. Tonight, he has a great matchup against the Trail Blazers.

This season, the Blazers allow the third-most fantasy points (45.2) to small forwards. They allow 23.5 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to small forwards.

Jaylon Brown will likely miss another game which forces Tatum to be the Celtics' primary scorer.

Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers $9,100


George got the night off Wednesday when the Clippers played Kings and will get his chance to destroy them tonight.

He has owned the Kings throughout his career, averaging 21.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.

Plus, the Kings have been great at stopping small forwards this season, allowing 20.2 points, seven rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game to small forwards.

Power Forwards

Doug McDermott, San Antonio Spurs $4,800

McDermott is a decent three-point shooter that qualifies at power forward, and since we spent big bucks on Tatum and George, we need a value pick that won't be a complete waste.

Jaren Jackson, Memphis Grizzlies $7,200


NBA fans were dealt a death blow with Ja Morant's knee injury, but Jaren Jackson has taken over as Memphis' primary scorer and is doing it well. He averaged 23 points, six rebounds, and three blocks in the three games without Morant.

Tonight, Jackson is facing off against the Mavericks front court that has been pretty solid against power forwards, but the injury bug is plaguing them now. So, Jackson has the perfect chance to take his scoring to the next level.

Center

Steven Adams, Memphis Grizzlies $5,400

Adams is a great value pick who has a great matchup against Dallas.

The Mavericks allow third-most fantasy points (57.9) per game to centers. They allow 25.8 points, 17.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game to centers.

Adams will most likely face off against Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber, who Adams has owned in previous games. He averages 10.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 1.3 assists when guarded by Powell. When guarded by Kleber, he averages 10.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists.

So no matter who guards him, he will score and grab boards.
