NBA DFS last night was so sickening that it caused our usual writer, Josh Livi to feel under the weather. Hopefully, you were able to avoid the mess the Milwaukee Bucks caused last night. If you were able to avoid that then hopefully, unlike me, you faded Norman Powell. If not, chalk it up to a bad night and hopefully, my players hit big tonight. I’ll provide you with two studs and two values on this big nine-game slate tonight.
James Harden (11,300 DK and 11,200 FD)
Harden hasn’t put up a 70+ point fantasy game in a while. He’s got a good chance to tonight. The Houston Rockets will be squaring off against the Minnesota Timberwolves in what should be one of the higher scoring games of the night. The over/under is 246.5 and the Timberwolves give up an average of 117.6 points per game. Harden is going to put up some points and you can confidently pay up for him.
Devin Booker (8,800 DK and 8,200 FD)
Another game I expect to be high scoring is the Portland Trail Blazers vs the Phoenix Suns. The over/under is currently set at 233. Booker has been playing great lately with five straight 20+ point games. He also added 30 total assists in his last three games. You can expect Booker to put up a lot of points in this potential high scoring affair.
Lauri Markkanen (4,700 DK and 4,700 FD)
Markkanen is back from his injury and is starting to build back his minutes. Against the Brooklyn Nets, he went for 16 points in 26 minutes. He gets a matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers who struggle against shooting power forwards. They are also defensively the worst team in terms of shooting percentage allowing teams to shoot 49% on the year. With Zack Lavine still out, look for Markkanen to find his shot and be a big source of offense for the Chicago Bulls.
Josh Jackson (4,600 DK and 4,700 FD)
Jackson has been the man off the bench recently for the Memphis Grizzlies. They are in the midst of a playoff race and currently have the eighth seed. He has scored double-digit in four straight games. He also has 11 total blocks and steals in his last four games. If he can get some steals or blocks in this game, he will provide great value.
Good luck with your lineups tonight! Make sure to check for any last-minute lineup changes. Go win some money!
