Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have a massive ten game slate tonight with options galore at almost every position. Let’s get right 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.
Kemba Walker (9.7, 9.3)
I talk all the time on the podcast and in this article about how I want to attack pace. There is simply no substitute in DFS for a team playing up in pace and getting all those juicy extra possessions. Charlotte plays Atlanta tonight, and the Hawks continue to provide fantasy gold on a nightly basis. Last night, we saw 33 steals in the Hawks/Heat game. When the pace is warp speed, players literally stumble in to steals. Accordingly, I love the Hornets tonight, specifically Kemba and Lamb. Kemba already has scored 45+ fantasy points against the Hawks in their first two meetings, and there is zero reason to think that will not happen again tonight.
