We have seven decent NBA games tonight and honestly, there are quite a bit of plays we can make. Anthony Davis is the only really high priced play so we can certainly make a really nice balanced lineup if you choose not to play him. Much like Harden, it is really hard not to play him right now, but I do think you can get away with it on this slate. Let’s dig in!
SIDE NOTE: Last night, I think I went off the board too much with Giles and Holmes where in reality on most nights you donâ€™t need to go that far off the board to take down tournaments. Last night for example in the $40 SE contest, the winning lineup only had one player under 10 percent, and it was Thad Young at six percent. The lineup also had five players over 20 percent, including a 69 percent owned Bobby Portis. My point here is that in the NBA on most night, the good plays are the good plays for a reason. It is much easier to predict the NBA that it is the NFL. So after all of that, I am just going to focus on my favorite four plays tonight instead of trying to find the one percent play who goes off because honestly, I may nail that 1 play maybe once every two weeks. Never mind trying to nail all four in one night. That, in my opinion is doing much more harm than good for you guys.
Nikola Vucevic (FD $9,500) (DK $9,400)Â
Really awesome FD price combined with an awesome matchup certainly has me intrigued. Vuc has been solid recently. Nothing really stands out but we all know that he has major upside and this is certainly a matchup where we could see that upside come through. Brooklyn has been giving up points to centers in bunches and that certainly isnâ€™t going to stop here. I also like the fact that he has a really nice floor, the Vuc â€śpoorâ€ť games recently have still netted us right around 40 DK points and youâ€™ll certainly take that for a floor.Â
