Ahh, smell that? That’s the smell of a lot of money we won last night!! Thank you Luka Doncic and Julius Randle. We got another jam packed slate tonight with seven games! Lots of good games and good players, so let’s get to it and keep the hot streak rolling!.
Guard: De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings (DK-$7,600)
Fox is a freakishly talented athlete. His speed is insane and can pretty much get to the hoop at easy. He is averaging 38.5 fantasy points per game and gets the Golden State Warriors tonight. Fox is also coming off a nice solid game where he dropped 26 points, two rebounds, and four assists. He is more of a score-first point guard, and I believe his offense will be on display tonight!
Forward: Eric Paschall, Golden State Warriors (DK-$5,000)
Paschall has a nice little hot streak going as of late. He has scored over 23 fantasy points in three straight games. His minutes have risen dramatically as well. He is getting 30 plus minutes a game! The Warriors get the Kings tonight as mentioned above. It is going to be a very high scoring game as both teams pretty much suck at defense. Paschall is a good bet for 30 plus fantasy points tonight and he is my SLEEPER of the night.
Power Forward: Christian Wood, Detroit Pistons: (DK-$7,300)
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. A famous motto I am going to use here with Wood. He’s an animal. He’s playing absolutely out of his mind and is a man on a mission. He’s scored over 40 fantasy points in four of his last six games. He is seemingly getting better as the season progresses. He gets a tough matchup in the Denver Nuggets tonight, but given his performances recently, I want to label him matchup proof. Get him in your lineup and enjoy the ride while you can!
Center: Steven Adams, Oklahoma City Thunder, (DK-$6,700)
Adams has been on a torrid hot streak over the last couple of games. Over his last two games, he’s put up 58.6 and 41.5 fantasy points per game. Tonight, he gets the Chicago Bulls. Another possibility for him to drop over 45 fantasy points. It certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility, as his season averages for fantasy points per game, is 30. He is playing at a very high level right now, and I want to see him continue! Cleaning up the boards, and being a force down low are all recipes for success.
Util: Victor Oladipo, Indiana Pacers, (DK-$6,300)
Oladipo missed the last game due to a back injury but should be good to go. Fellow guard/forward, Jeremy Lamb, just tore apart his knee and is undergoing major surgery. Oladipo is going to start seeing heavy minutes due to the absence of lamb. Coming off a major injury of his own, Oladipo has held his own all season. A nice matchup with the Charlotte Hornets can do wonders for his confidence as well. This is a prime spot for a “get-right” type of game. The 18.3 fantasy points per game don’t look pretty, but expect that to go up tonight!
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fave Five! Hope you enjoyed it and good luck!
