The Knicks' point guards have a fantastic matchup against the Lakers, who allow the second-most fantasy points to point guards. But Kemba Walker, Immanuel Quickley, and Alec Burks have split the point guard's minutes evenly for the Knicks. It's a dart throw on who will be the star to shine tonight, but I'm aiming my dart towards Quickley.

He has been the more consistent scorer but, more importantly, has been reliable in the assists category. He averages 20.2 minutes, eight points, 4.4 assists, and 2.3 rebounds in his last 10 games. Hopefully, Quickley can get more buckets against the Lakers.

The Lakers allow 25.1 points, 8.9 assists, and 7.3 rebounds per game to point guards. It bodes well for Quickley that will face off against Russell Westbrook, who he has had success against in the past.

Quickley averages 15 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists when guarded by Westbrook.

Jrue Holiday, Milwaukee Bucks $7,500

Speaking of point guards with great matchups ahead, Holiday has a terrific one against the Trail Blazers.

The Blazers allow 23.2 points, 8.8 assists, and 6.2 rebounds per game to point guards. Portland will most likely either have Anfernee Simons or Dennis Smith Jr. guard Holiday, which is nothing but good news for him.

Holiday averages 20 points, 8.3 assists, four rebounds, and two steals when guarded by Simons. Holiday's numbers against Smith Jr. are not much different, 19.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, five rebounds, and one steal.

Shooting Guards

Tyrese Haliburton, Sacramento Kings $7,600

Halliburton has been on fire recently, averaging 18.4 points, 7.8 assists, three rebounds, and 2.2 steals in his last five games. Tonight, he has one of the better matchups for shooting guards against the Thunder.

The Thunder allow the most fantasy points to shooting guards, allowing 22.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and five assists per game.

Josh Giddey, Oklahoma City Thunder $6,500

I mentioned how Haliburton has a great matchup; well, the guy facing off against him, Josh Giddey, has a great matchup as well.

After struggling against the Bulls and Cavaliers, Giddey has gotten back on track. He is averaging 14.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in his last three games. Since he has gotten his scoring back, maybe, tonight he has a career game against the Kings.

The Kings allow 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game to shooting guards.

Small Forwards

Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings $5,700

Barnes is another King who has a great matchup. In fact, his matchup against the Thunder bodes better for him than Haliburton because the Thunder have allowed the second-most fantasy points to small forwards.

The Thunder allows 21.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game to small forwards.

Barnes will likely be guarded by Lou Dort, who has struggled to keep Barnes at bay in their previous matchups. Barnes averages 14.4 points, four rebounds, and two assists when guarded by Dort.

Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks $8,200

HE'S IN!!

Middleton is averaging 21.3 points, six rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.4 steals in his last 10 games. Now has a matchup against the Trail Blazers, who allow the third-most fantasy points (44.1) to small forwards.

The Trail Blazers allow 23.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game to small forwards. Now that Portland traded Powell, they probably will struggle more to stop Middleton.

Power Forwards

Carmelo Anthony, Los Angeles Lakers $5,200

Lebron James is still dealing with knee soreness, so other shooters have had to step up, and Carmelo Anthony has been one of those shooters.

He is averaging 14 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in games with James, and tonight Anthony has a decent matchup against the Knicks.

The Knicks allow 20.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, and four assists per game to power forwards.

Anthony did leave Thursday’s game with a strained hamstring, but it isn’t serious and he is considered day-to-day. If Anthony is ruled out, switch him out with either P.J. Washington of Trevor Ariza.

Jae Crowder, Phoenix Suns $4,800

Crowder appeared to regain some of his shooting in his second game back from his wrist injury, posting 10 points, six rebounds, one steal, and one block against the Hawks. Tonight, he has a great matchup against the Wizards.

The Wizards allow 22.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game to power forwards. Crowder has had great success against Kyle Kuzma, the poor wizards tasked with stopping Crowder.

He averages 11.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.3 steals when guarded by Kuzma.

Center

Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat $8,700

I love Bam Adebayo, so anytime I can suggest him for DFS players, I will not hesitate to recommend my beloved. He is averaging 17.1 points, 9.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 2.3 steals, and 1.1 blocks in his past 10 games. Now, this double-double machine and Adonis of a man has a fantastic matchup against the Hornets.

The Hornets allow 25.7 points, 17.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game to centers. Adebayo will destroy the two Hornets (Mason Plumlee and P.J. Washington) assigned to guard him.

Adebayo averages 14.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, and three assists when guarded by Plumlee and averages 21.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 5.2 assists when guarded by Washington.
