Point Guards

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors $9,700

Curry has been on fire lately, averaging 25.1 points, 7.5 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in his last ten games. Now tonight, he has the chance to destroy the Lakers yet again.

This season, Curry has averaged 22.5 points, nine assists, and 7.5 rebounds against the Lakers. There is no chance that the Lakers will stop him tonight based on their non-existent defense against point guards.

The Lakers allow the second-most fantasy points to point guards this season. They allow 25.2 points (most among all teams), 9.1 assists, and 7.1 rebounds per game to PGs.

Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies $3,900

Unlike Curry, Jones isn't a point guard tearing up the stat sheets. He has averaged 6.7 points, 2.8 assists, and 1.2 rebounds in his last five games. But he is facing off against the Magic, who has one of the league's worst defenses (112 Defensive Rating).

The Magic haven't been that great at stopping point guards this season. They allow 22.6 points, 8.2 assists, and 6.7 rebounds per game to PGs.

I need to save money to spend on some more stellar talent, so I'm willing to take a risky dart throw on Jones.

Shooting Guards

Devin Vassell, San Antonio Spurs $6,300

Vassell has been thriving in his new starting role, averaging 14 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists in his last eight games. Now, he has the chance for a breakout game against the Hornets, who allow the fourth-most fantasy points to shooting guards.

The Hornets allow 23.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game to shooting guards.

Vassell is dealing with an abdominal strain, but he is considered day to day and is questionable for tonight's game. If he is ruled out, I will switch to Jalen Suggs.

Terry Rozier, Charlotte Hornets $7,600

In his last five games, Rozier has been putting up Curry-like numbers recently, averaging 21 points, 5.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.8 steals. Now, Rozier has the chance to have his highest-scoring game of the year against the Timberwolves.

The Timberwolves allow 22.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to shooting guards. The last time Rozier faced off against D'Angelo Russell, he walked away with 25 points and five assists.

Small Forwards

Taurean Prince, Minnesota Timberwolves $3,500

Anthony Edwards is dealing with an injury that has increased Prince's minutes, and he has made the most of those increased minutes. He is averaging 13 points, three steals, two rebounds, and 1.5 assists in his last two games with increased minutes. Now, Prince has a terrific matchup against the Trail Blazers, who allow the second-most fantasy points to small forwards.

The Blazers allow 23.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to SFs.

Usually, Edwards electrifies the crowd, but Prince has the chance tonight with his prime matchup.

Ziaire Williams, Memphis Grizzlies $4,000

Welcome back, Williams, but I was hoping you could put up a better performance than what you did last week (Like an NBA player who read this article). Even though Williams put up a goose egg against the Bulls, I still believe Williams can have a great game, especially with his matchup against the Magic.

The Magic allow 21.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game to small forwards.

Power Forwards

P.J. Washington, Charlotte Hornets $6,000

After having a stretch of inconsistent scoring games, Washington has seemed to put together a consistent stretch, averaging 12.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in his last five games. His matchup against the Spurs will not derail his recent consistency.

The Spurs allow 20.7 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to power forwards this season. Plus, he has had success against Keldon Johnson in previous matchups.

Washington averages 13.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, five assists, and 1.7 blocks when guarded by Johnson.

Tobias Harris, Philadelphia 76ers $7,000

Harris is a reliable two-category contributor all season, averaging 18.2 points and 7.2 rebounds. Harris has a terrific matchup against P.J. Tucker.

He averages 18.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and two assists when guarded by Tucker. Plus, Harris shoots 50.4 percent from the field when defended by Tucker. So Harris is poised to have excellent production tonight.

Tucker has been dealing with knee pain, so I doubt he'll be able to step up defensively against Harris, and if Tucker is out, then Harris will tee off on Dewayne Dedmon.

Center

Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat $9,900

I have said this 500 times this season, but I love Bam Adebayo! He has had two 30-point games in his past four games. Now Adebayo probably won't put up 30 points against Joel Embiid, but he should put up close to 20 points.

He has averaged 17.5 points against Embiid in their last four matchups.

DFS players will be two treats when starting Emiid, the first one is getting a great player in your lineup, and the second treat is watching the battle between Adebayo and Embiid.
