Guards

Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks, ($9,400)

Young has been shooting inconsistently the past few games and for the most part, has reached value due to his high number of assists, averaging the third-most per game in the NBA (9.5).

Foul trouble looked like it was going to cause him to have a bad game but he made some big shots in double overtime to help win the game and reach value last night against the Spurs. Look for him to carry that momentum in tonight’s game against the Pelicans.

The Pelicans perimeter defense has been bad all season and they are giving up the second-most DK points per game (51.71) to point guards. They also are the worst at defending beyond the arc, allowing the most three-pointers made per game (15.2)

Look for Young to have a big impact in this game with John Collins being out (sprained ankle), he’s already second in the league in usage (37.1).

Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors, ($9,700)

Steph has bounced back from his tailbone injury, scoring over 30 points in both games since returning.

The Raptors have been playing terrible defensively all season, and they have given up the third-most points per game to opposing teams over the past three games.

The biggest issue with the Raptors is their perimeter defense which Curry will take advantage of, currently leading the league in three-pointers made per game (4.7).

The NBA three-point champion will be going against a shorthanded Raptors team missing Kyle Lowry (foot infection).

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns, ($8,600)

Everybody has been able to score at will against the Thunder and that bodes well for a player of Booker’s caliber. The Thunder allow the sixth-most (23.90) ppg to opposing shooting guards this season.

Booker has averaged 27 ppg since returning from the All-Star break. Look for him to be aggressive from the beginning, averaging the sixth-most shot attempts (20.4) in the league since the break as well.

Booker is coming off a 45 point performance against the Bulls on Wednesday night.

Forwards

Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves, ($7,100)

Last week when I picked Edwards against the Rockets he disappointed me coming out with a 25 DK point performance, shooting 4-17 from the field.

Edwards’ salary has dropped $800 since then and he’s going against a Grizzlies defense that has had problems guarding forwards all season. They currently allow the most DK points to small forwards this season.

Since the All-Star break, Edwards is second in the NBA in shot attempts per game (20.9) and just outside the top 10 in minutes per game (35.3).

Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers, ($9,300)

The All-Star forward is scoring 20 ppg and 6 apg, both career highs. Since the All-Star break, he’s averaging 12.1 rebounds per game (4th most in NBA).

The Hornets allow the most ppg to power forwards (23.53) and DK points (50.59) as well.

The Hornets don’t have anyone in their frontcourt that can guard Sabonis, as he displayed the last time he faced Charlotte. He ended the game with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks, ($10,900)

The former MVP is quietly having another dominant season, averaging 28 points and 11 rebounds per game. Giannis has been on a scoring tear lately, scoring at least 30 points in half of his last eight games.

The Trail Blazers are playing at the third-fastest pace over the past three games which should give Giannis more opportunities.

The last time the Greek Freak faced the Trail Blazers he scored 18 points and 6 assists in 26 minutes due to a blowout. With Jusuf Nurkic and Norman Powell now playing on the Blazers I expect this to be a closer game.

Giannis is a must-start anytime he’s below $11K.
