Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have a very tricky nine-game NBA slate tonight with lots of injury news and lots of value. You should be smart tonight with your bankroll, as the variance tonight makes this a slate tailor-made for supercomputers. We will have to use all of our powers to come out on top tonight.
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.
Terry Rozier (4.3, 5.3)
Kyrie is out tonight for the Celtics, and that means several Celtics are intriguing tonight vs. Minnesota. There’s no way to sugarcoat it, Rozier has been awful this year. He has not learned to adjust to his 18 minute a night role as a backup. And even in the limited time, he’s gotten with Kyrie off the court, he has looked lost and been inefficient. However, this guy has legitimate talent, would be starting on a majority of NBA teams, and was paying off his salary with ease last year at 7K when starting. I have zero issue using Rozier on any site in any format tonight. He has 50 fantasy point upside if he can get in a rhythm, and obviously, without Kyrie he will get the minutes to find that rhythm tonight.
