Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have an excellent eight-game NBA slate to kick off the week– 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.
Dennis Smith Jr. (5.1, 4.5)
It has been incredibly depressing to watch DSJ play this year. The combination of Carlisle and Doncic has destroyed his confidence on the court. And it doesn’t help things that he barely gets to touch the ball on the offensive end if he doesn’t get off to a quick start. But, with that said, he is now at a price I simply cannot ignore. Playing way up in pace against the Lakers, I think there is a very good chance DSJ plays 28-30 minutes and gets us 35 fantasy points. If you’re watching the game, we’ll know within the first few minutes what kind of night we’re in for…so let’s hope he comes out aggressive (and Donic lets him touch the ball).
