Point Guards

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors $10,100


Curry has a fantastic matchup against the Lakers, and the two-point guards tasked to guard him - Russell Westbrook and Avery Bradley.

Curry has torched Westbrook and Bradley throughout his career. He averages 24.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and five rebounds when guarded by Westbrook and averages 26.1 points, six assists, and 5.5 rebounds when guarded by Bradley.

So, Currey should have a Curry-like game against those two, and even if Vogel changes the Lakers' defensive assignments, Curry will still shine against them. The Lakers allow the second-most fantasy points to point guards. They allow 24.9 points, nine assists, and 7.1 rebounds per game to PGs.

Devonte' Graham, New Orleans Pelicans $5,400

Graham has struggled in February, averaging 6.8 points, 5.3 assists, and 2.3 rebounds. Hopefully, his matchup against the Spurs, who allow 48.4 fantasy points to point guards.

The Spurs allow 23.7 points, 7.9 assists, and seven rebounds per game to PGs.

It also helps that this game at home where Graham has performed better this season, averaging 15.2 points, 4.7 assists, and 2.8 rebounds.

Shooting Guards

Desmond Bane, Memphis Grizzlies $6,000


Bane has been a solid contributor recently, averaging 16.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in his last seven games. Now he has a terrific matchup against the Hornets and Terry Rozier.

The Hornets allow 23.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game to shooting guards.

When guarded by Rozier, Bane averages 10 points, two assists, and 1.3 rebounds. Hopefully, Bane's number will get his road game bump.

He averages 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists this season on the road.

Duncan Robinson, Miami Heat $4,700

February has not been a good month for Duncan Robinson so far; he is only averaging 9.3 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.8 rebounds. Maybe, his matchup against the Nets will get his scoring back on track.

The Nets allow 22.6 points, six rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game to shooting guards. Now it will be a minute before we see the debut of Ben Simmons, but Kyrie Irving will be in the lineup, and Robinson has had success against him in the past.

When guarded by Irving, Robinson averages 12 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists.

Since I spent some big money on Stephen Curry and Domantas Sabonis, I need to save money with Duncan Robinson. He'll provide enough savings but won't be a waste of a spot.

Small Forwards

Mikal Bridges, Phoenix Suns $6,1000


Bridges has been killing in on the court recently, averaging 20.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in his last five games. He now has the chance to pad his stats against the Magic, who allow the fourth-most fantasy points (43.9) per game to small forwards.

The Magic allow 21.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game to small forwards.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Washington Wizards $4,300

The Wizards traded Spencer Dinwiddie, and Bradley Beal is out for the rest of the season. That now makes Caldwell-Pope one of Washington's primary scorers and best three-point shooters. That increased workload can only mean good things for DFS players considering his prime matchup against the Kings.

The Kings allow 21.4 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game to small forwards.

Power Forwards

Darius Bazley, Oklahoma City Thunder $6,000


Bazley has been fantastic in February, averaging 13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. Bazley will be a great value pick for DFS players; he is a double-double waiting to happen and has a great matchup against the Bulls.

The Bulls allow the third-most fantasy points (47.2) to power forwards. They allow 21.7 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game to PFs.

The last time Bazley faced off against DeMar DeRozan, he walked away with 11 points and 10 rebounds. So don't be surprised if Bazley has another double-double against the Bulls.

Evan Mobley, Cleveland Cavaliers $7,400

I have said this before this season, but you have to watch the Cavaliers because they are an exciting team (probably even more so with Caris LeVert), and Mobley is one of the main reasons they are electrifying. He is averaging 15 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.5 blocks in his last 10 games. He should have a similar stat line against the Sixers, who have been so-so against power forwards.

The Sixers allow 20.3 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game to PFs.

If you are going to watch only one game tonight, I would make it Evan Mobley and the Cavaliers against the Sixers.

Center

Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings $9,900


As a Pacers fan, it pains me to say this, but Sabonis looked really good in his debut with the Kings, with 22 points, 14 rebounds, and five assists. Now I have to watch my former love have a great game against the Wizards, who allow the third-most fantasy points to centers.

The Wizards allow 24.3 points, 16.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game to centers.

Like Dolly Parton said, "Sabonis, I will always love you." (Now I'm stuck with Myles Turner)
