Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have a very tricky 10-game NBA slate, and I have a way too expensive date with Chipotle tonight – so let’s get right down to business.
Here are some of my top tournament plays for today’s slate.
Note: The numbers in parenthesis refer to the salaries of that particular player. The first number is the FanDuel (“FD”) salary, while the second number is the DraftKings (“DK”) salary.
Lonzo Ball (6.8, 7.7)
This is obviously easier to stomach on FD, but I am fine with Lonzo in tournaments on either site. LeBron is out and Kuzma is questionable for the Lakers, so Lonzo should be featured prominently tonight on both ends. He has been inconsistent and benched for (gasp) KCP the last two games because the Lakers wanted to space on the court. However, Lonzo possesses rare upside that most other PGs cannot match due to his ability to stuff the stat sheet. Everyone is going to play Rozier tonight (and that makes sense in cash), however, just keep in mind that Rozier had 6 steals and blocks last game. So, Lonzo is a nice pivot in tournaments against the disgusting Knicks.
