12-Game Slate

Cavs @ Hornets
Nets @ Sixers
Spurs @ Raptors
Clippers @ Pistons
Magic @ Bulls
Bucks @ Wolves
Knicks @ Pelicans
Pacers @ Rockets
Warriors @ Thunder
Mavs @ Grizzlies
Heat @ Nuggets
Wizards @ Kings

Point Guard

T.J. McConnell, Indiana Pacers $5,500

The Pacers can’t seem to stay healthy, which has increased McConnell’s workload. This increased workload is fantastic for a player like McConnell because he contributes in every offensive and defensive category.

He is averaging 12.2 points, 8.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals in his previous five games.

Tonight, he faces the Rockets, who have one of the worst defenses in the NBA (112.8 defensive ratings). The Rockets allow 23.5 points, 8.3 assists, and 7.1 rebounds per game to point guards.

Shooting Guard

Derrick White, San Antonio Spurs $6,400

White has been on a tear lately, he is averaging 18 points, 3.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and one steal in his last ten games.

Tonight, he has a great matchup against the Raptors, who allow fourth-most fantasy points to shooting guards. Toronto allows 23.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game to shooting guards this season.

Kyle Lowry will likely guard White, and he averages 11.3 points, four rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.3 blocks when guarded by Lowry.

Small Forward

Tim Hardaway Jr., Dallas Mavericks $4,900

After two bad outings against the Spurs and 76ers, Hardaway is looking for a bounce-back game, and his matchup against the Grizzlies will help.

Memphis allows the most fantasy points to small forwards this season. The Grizzlies allow 22.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to small forwards.

Even with his two bad games, Hardaway is still putting up decent numbers recently. He is averaging 14.3 points, 3..5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in his previous ten games.

DFS players should expect a similar stat line from Hardaway since Dillon Brooks will guard him.  Hardaway averages 16.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, and one assist when guarded by Brooks.

Power Forward

Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers $6,400

After missing most of the season, Love is back and is putting up decent numbers, considering he hasn’t played basketball for months.

Love is averaging 14.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists since returning from injury and has a fantastic matchup against the Hornets to show DFS players that he is back to being the old Kevin Love.

The Hornets allow 23.5 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game to power forwards this season. Charlotte allows the second-most three-pointers made to power forwards, which bodes well for Love, who has shot 37 percent from three-point range for his career.

Center

Nerlens Noel, New York Knicks $4,300

Noel is a deep discount play for tonight’s game. He hasn’t had a double-digit point game in almost a month, but he is a rebounding machine. He is averaging 7.4 rebounds, 5.4 points, 2.7 blocks, and 1.4 steals in his previous ten games. Maybe, tonight’s game against the Pelicans will be Noel’s first double-digit game of April.

The Pelicans allow the most fantasy points to centers this season. They allow 22.7 points, 12.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists per game to centers.

Save money and take the risk on Noel.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
