Three-Game Slate

Dallas Mavericks @ Charlotte Hornets
Detroit Pistons @ Cleveland Cavaliers
Los Angeles Lakers @ Washington Wizards

Point Guards

Raul Neto, Washington Wizards $4,300

Heads up, I'm spending big money on other players, so I need a cheap starting option with a decent matchup, and Neto fills that criteria.

Neto has a great matchup against the Lakers, who allow the second-most fantasy points to point guards. The Lakers allow 25 points, nine assists, and 6.9 rebounds per game to PGs.

Darius Garland, Cleveland Cavaliers $8,500

Garland has been fantastic lately, averaging 26.5 points, 10.4 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.4 steals in his last eight games. This walking double-double machine has the second-best matchup tonight for points guards against the Pistons.

The Pistons allow 21.6 points, 9.1 assists, and 6.9 rebounds per game to point guards.

So spend big money on the first-time All-Star Garland.

Shooting Guards

Jalen Brunson, Dallas Mavericks $5,200

Since returning from his tight injury, Brunson has been playing well, averaging 16 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in his two games back. He has a great matchup against the Hornets to get his shot back and get his legs feeling good.

The Hornets allow 22.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game to shooting guards.

The last time Brunson faced off against Terry Rozier, Brunson walked away with 16 points and eight assists, so even if he doesn't explode for a big game, you can count on him to stick to his recent averages.

Malik Monk, Los Angeles Lakers $5,700

In his last nine games as a starter, Monk has averaged 14.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.8 assists. He is starting to show some consistency that hasn't been there since the end of December and the beginning of January (where he averaged 21.9 points).

Tonight, Monk will have the perfect test to show his consistency isn't a fluke with his matchup against Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. The last time they faced off against each other, Monk walked away with 21 points, four assists, and three rebounds. That solid production at his low asking price is too good to pass on for tonight's small slate.

Small Forwards

LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers $10,700

James has been on a ridiculous scoring run recently, averaging 30.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 6.2 assists in his last five games.

NOW, he has another matchup against Corey Kispert, who struggled at guarding James in their last matchup! Psst, that's when LeBron scored 50 points!

Saddiq Bey, Detroit Pistons $5,600

Saddiq Bey falls into the Raul-Neto category of a starter with a decent opportunity to provide solid production. But unlike Raul Neto, Bey is coming off a 51-point night against the Magic; I doubt he'll have that big of a game against Cleveland.

He should be able to put up 16 points and six rebounds which is close to his season averages of 16.3 points and 5.8 rebounds. It also helps that the Cavaliers allow 19.7 points and seven rebounds per game to small forwards.

Power Forwards

Evan Mobley, Cleveland Cavaliers $7,900

I have my two building blocks of Garland and James to make sure I can compete, so I got to build my own Big 3. Mobley is my last piece of the puzzle.

I'm sure this is the 100th time I have suggested Mobley, but can you blame me? He averages 15.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists for the season and has turned a corner recently. He averages 20.2 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in his last five games.

Other players going around Mobley's price are Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma. Porzingis is always one bad jump from being injured again, and Kuzma is a better scorer than Mobley, but Kuzma is boring old news. Take a chance on the future and enjoy watching this young player Mobley continue his rapidly progressing development.

Jerami Grant, Detroit Pistons $5,900

Grant is dealing with a knee injury but is only considered day-to-day, so there is a good chance he plays against Cleveland. Now that I've put out the injury disclaimer, you should try to use it to your advantage. It's not unlogical to avoid players with injuries, especially rebounders with knee problems. Still, we spent a lot of money elsewhere, and that other options here scare me more than Grant's injury.

The players around Grant's price are Lauri Markkanen and Marvin Bagley. Markkanen is more of an injury risk than Grant and is a streaky scorer. Bagley has been scoring consistently lately (averaging 16.4 points in last seven games), but Grant has proven to be a better scorer and more consistent for the whole season (19 points).

If Grant is out, then switch him out with Bagley, but Grant is the best option out of this tier of players if he plays.

Center

Mason Plumlee, Charlotte Hornets $5,700

I have my Big 3 of superstars; well, Plumlee is the last piece of my semi-big 3 of reasonably priced starters who can put up decent production. I know the name is too long and sucks.

Plumlee is a lumbering rebound machine who is averaging 8.4 rebounds in his last five games. He has three double-digit rebound games in those five games. So if he could put together a decent scoring night against the Lakers, Plumlee would be a great value.

The scoring task shouldn't be challenging for him since he averages 11 points when guarded by Dwight Howard. So it's highly probable that Plumlee walks away with a double-double.
