Tonight’s slate features eight games. Five of these games being an Eastern Conference team against a Western Conference team. Here are my best value players and predictions for tonight’s games.
Buddy Hield (7,000 FD and 6,800 DK)
Hield is a career 41% three-point shooter. He has struggled to start the year only shooting 37%. Without De’Aaron Fox on Tuesday night he shot 21 times, scoring 20 points. He struggled to find his three-point shot as he went only 2-11. He did have his fingers taped which might have affected his shot just enough to cause him to struggle. If he can find his shot again he could put up his season-high in fantasy points.
Enes Kanter (5,200 FD and 4,900 DK)
Kanter has returned to the Celtics after missing seven games. In his first game back he played only five minutes scoring only two points. Wednesday he played 25 minutes and scored 13 points while grabbing nine rebounds. Look for Kanter to get double-digit minutes and be a great value play as he faces a Warriors team that struggles against centers.
T.J. Warren (6,400 FD and 6,000 DK)
Warren has actually played very well especially at his price. He has put up more than 35 fantasy points in four games this season. He faces the Rockets in a game that is going to be high scoring as they give up an average of 116.1 points per game. I like Warren to be able to have another big night and put up 35+ Fanduel points for the fifth time this year.
Trey Lyles (3,700 FD and 3,800 DK)
Lyles has only had double-digit points in one game this year. However, he does not have score points to get fantasy points. He rebounds very well and has actually gotten double-digit rebounds while scoring zero points twice this year. Lyles is a risky play but at his salary, if he can manage to get 20 or more fantasy points he will give you great value. Especially on a night where there aren’t many injuries that open the door for bench players.
Tyson Chandler (3,800 FD and 4,000 DK)
If you wanted to go the route of an even cheaper center than Kanter, Chandler is the best option. With Clint Capela out, Chandler is going to start at center. His salary is very low and he should be able to at the very least trip into some points and rebounds.
These are my favorite value players of the night. With these players, you should be able to squeeze in any superstar or two that you want. Good luck tonight and make sure to check your lineups for late scratches.
Pistons @ Hornets
The Pistons and Blake Griffin overpower the young Hornets team. Final score 108-101.
Spurs @ Magic
The Spurs roster isn’t the greatest but they still have some good players. Popovich will not allow them to overlook this Magic team that just took down the 76ers at home Wednesday Night. Final score 109-99.
Pacers @ Rockets
The Pacers have been on fire lately winning four games in a row. Although they didn’t face a team like the Rockets and will struggle even if Westbrook does sit out this game. Final score 128-117.
76ers @ Thunder
The 76ers should be back at full strength and will use their depth to beat the Thunder even though they have struggled on the road. Final score 112-104.
Jazz @ Grizzlies
In a revenge game for Mike Conley, he and his teammates will have his back and smoke the Grizzlies. Final score 117-105.
Wizards @ Timberwolves
The Wizards defense can’t stop anybody and the Wolves are able to slow Bradley Beal and the offense down enough to win. The Wolves win this game by a final score of 118-109.
Celtics @ Warriors
The Celtics have too much talent and put on a show out west against the depleted Warriors squad. Final score 117-111.
Kings @ Lakers
The Kings get out to a hot start with Hields three-point shooting and there improved defensive intensity. They use this to win the game by a final score of 121-117.
