I love the smell of fresh dollar bills, don’t you? We had another monster night last night, courtesy of Julius Randle and Christian Wood. Only three games tonight, so the slate is a little more difficult. Have no fear, I’m going to help you make the best possible lineup! Let’s get to it!
Guard: Terry Rozier, Charlotte Hornets: (DK-$6,600)
Rozier is on a nice little hot streak. He is averaging 31.7 fantasy points per game and gets a matchup with the Atlanta Hawks tonight. Over his last six games, he’s scored over 35 fantasy points twice, over 22 fantasy points twice, and over 40 fantasy points his last game against the Houston Rockets. Tonight’s matchup is a pretty good one for Rozier. I am going to LOCK him in my lineup. Going to have a nice Hornets stack tonight, so keep reading to find out who my other play is!
Forward: Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks: (DK-$7,600)
Middleton is another great play here tonight, especially if Giannis Antetokounmpo is out tonight. He put up 47 fantasy points last game with Giannis out on 35 minutes. That’s an extremely impressive stat line. Giannis should be out tonight as well, so Middleton is going to lead the charge against the Denver Nuggets. No Giannis means YOU START MIDDLETON TONIGHT! Get him in your lineup and get ready to win some money!
Power Forward: John Collins, Atlanta Hawks: (DK-$9,000)
The Collins start tonight is strictly for two reasons. Number one, the matchup. Collins is facing the Hornets, who, if you watch basketball, you know they aren’t very good. Collins is going to eat Cody Zeller alive. On to reason number two. Collins has scored over 40 fantasy points in his last two games. In that span, he has scored over 25 points and grabbed over 18 combined rebounds in two games! With the matchup and the hot streak, he is my SLEEPER of the night!
Center: Dewayne Dedmon, Atlanta Hawks: (DK-$4,100)
Dedmon has also been riding a nice little hot streak the past couple of games. Averaging over 20 fantasy points his last two games, and the matchup with the Hornets on hand, he makes for a very intriguing start tonight. He is only getting around 20 minutes a game and putting up a nice return for fantasy owners. On the year, Dedmon is averaging 15.7 fantasy points per game and 5.4 rebounds per game. The numbers don’t look pretty, but with such a small slate tonight and a plus matchup, Dedmon will do more than just fine to hold his own.
Util: Trae Young, Atalanta Hawks: (DK-$10.300)
One of my favorite plays of the night, Young is a must-have. Young is averaging an absurd 51.7 fantasy points per game and is going to really push guys like Luka Doncic and Zion Williamson for the Rookie Of The Year award. He is averaging 29.4 points per game and 9.3 assists on the year. Put that together and a matchup with the Hornets and you are going to get one eye-popping, stat-stuffing, monster performance. Young is playing like a top player in the NBA and that will continue tonight. Get him in your lineup every night, especially tonight and enjoy the ride!
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fav Five!! Hope you guys enjoy it and good luck!
