We are back! Lots of money to be made tonight, lots of games to pick from, and lots of stars on the board tonight. And there are sleepers lots of sleepers, I’m talking deep sleepers. Let’s get to it and good luck.
Guard: Reggie Jackson, Detroit Pistons (DK-$6,600) (FD-$5,900)
R-Jax is a much better play on FanDuel than on DraftKings because of the price difference. He is averaging 28.8 fantasy points per game and has quietly put together a string of nice performances. Most notably, his last game against the New York Knicks. He scored a team-high 20 points and chipped in nine assists in 31 minutes. With Andre Drummond in a different state, the Pistons’ offense is going to run completely through Jackson. That’s exactly what’s going to happen tonight.
Forward: Kevin Huerter, Atlanta Hawks (DK-$6,300) (FD-$4,600)
PRICE ERROR IF YOU ARE USING FANDUEL! Huerter had arguably his best game of the season last night against the Knicks. Scoring 25 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. Tonight is his second game of a back to back, and he gets the Orlando Magic. He scored 38 fantasy points against the Magic in their first meeting. Huerter is also averaging 42.5 minutes per game, so he’s playing as much as he can handle. Look for him to continue his nice streak of games tonight.
Power Forward: Christian Wood, Detroit Pistons (DK-$7,200) (FD-$8,100)
Wood is a monster. He will certainly be on my Fave Five list often moving forward. As mentioned above, with Drummond gone, Wood is going to get all the minutes and has the ability to stuff the stat sheet. He is coming off a monster performance where he scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Good for 41.3 fantasy points. Wood gets a matchup with the Charlotte Hornets tonight and I see NO ONE able to stop him. He is going to eat anyone who comes near him tonight and going to have another massive double-double. He’s my LOCK of the night.
Center: Naz Reid, Minnesota Timberwolves (DK-$3,500) (FD-$3,700)
WHO? Yes, Reid is the backup center for the Timberwolves. With Gorgui Dieng traded, Reid is going to get minutes. He is coming off a nice fantasy performance where he scored 14 points and had nine rebounds. Good for 28.3 fantasy points. I’m expecting a similar outing from Reid tonight against the Toronto Raptors. Look for him to come close to another double-double, and at this price point, I’ll take 28 fantasy points any given night of the week! SLEEPER of the night.
Util: Jordan McLaughlin, Minnesota Timberwolves, (DK-$5,300) (FD-$4,600)
Umm, we still doing NBA players here? Yes, McLaughlin got the start with Andrew Wiggins gone. Boy did he put on a show!! He put up 24 points and 11 assists in 37 minutes! Good for 48 fantasy points! I am expecting his price point to continue to rise due to his exceptional performance, so better get him cheap while you can. Cracking 45 fantasy points again tonight is certainly not out of the realm of possibility. As long as he’s this cheap, get him in your lineup, and thank me later!
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fave Five! Hope you guys win some big money, and good luck!!
