We are back! We had a monster few nights in a row! That’s exactly what we want! To win money and lots of it!!
We got a monster 8-game slate tonight with lots of star power and a lot of sleepers! Let’s get to it, and find those awesome plays to help you win some money!
Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks: (DK-$10,500)
I honestly wouldn’t care if Luka cost around $13,000. He is a superstar. In his last two games, he is averaging over 60 (!!!) fantasy points per game. It’s not surprising that the offense runs through Luka. Tonight he gets a cupcake matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves. No one, and I mean absolutely no one, is capable of stopping this dude. Just plug him in your lineup and move on to the forward position!
Robert Covington, Houston Rockets: (DK-$6,000)
Who remembers the two rules of DFS? Number one, start players against the New York Knicks. Number two, start players against the Rockets “big man” P.J. Tucker. Covington here gets a great matchup. Besides the matchup, he is averaging over 35 fantasy points in two of his last three games. He is also contributing in many other categories as opposed to just scoring. He is rebounding, playing defense, and just looks a lot more comfortable in the Rockets jersey. He is my SLEEPER of the night and I’m projecting him to go over 30 fantasy points tonight.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks: (DK-$11,400)
Giannis is arguably the most difficult dude in the NBA to guard. He is averaging 60 fantasy points per game and is getting better every single year. Tonight he gets the Washington Wizards. That’s all I’m going to say. Just lock him in your lineups.
Julius Randle, New York Knicks: (DK-$8,200)
Randle gets the pick here for two reasons. Number one, the rule of DFS: Start your players against the Rockets’ “big man”. Randle is going to eat Tucker alive tonight. Randle is good enough to shoot the three-ball and get to the hoop. Tucker will have a very difficult time guarding him. Besides the rule of DFS, more importantly, Randle is coming off one of his best games of the season. Scoring 35 points, grabbing 18 rebounds! Tonight the matchup is one he can only wish for! I’m expecting him to put up 50 fantasy points tonight!
Caris LeVert, Brooklyn Nets: (DK-$7,300)
LeVert played exceptionally well without Kyrie Irving. Last week it was reported Kyrie will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery. That can only mean one thing, you got it! LeVert is going to have to carry the load and play as many minutes as his body can handle. Without Kyrie, he is averaging 35+ minutes a game and is averaging around 40 fantasy points per game. Look for him to continue his beautiful play, in what should a pretty high scoring, defense lacking game.
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fave Five! Hope you guys enjoyed it, and good luck! Let’s go win some money!
