Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have a nice six-game NBA slate to start the week, so let’s get down to business.
Here are some of my top tournament plays for tonight’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.
Chris Paul (7.3, 6.6)
At some point, Harden will want a little help, right? CP3 rested last game, and he should play 30-32 minutes tonight. I would be wary if the Rockets had a back to back, as it would make sense to be cautious with CP3 going forward – but the Rockets only play three games this week. It is no secret that we want to attack Phoenix, so this is an excellent spot for CP3 to stuff the stat sheet with ease. This is just the ideal matchup for him to work himself back into game shape and to ease Harden’s workload. CP3 still has 50 fantasy point upside, and I want exposure before his price rises back up to 8K. Also, CP3 may get a few more minutes/usage with Eric Gordon out tonight.
