We are back once again to give you our large field fantasy rankings for FanDuel tournament plays. We have 7 games tonight but not to many games that look that great for fantasy points. We subscribe to the multiple GPP lineups school of thought. We diversify a number of GPP type lineups and then choose our best one to use in all of our heads up and 50/50 games. This heads up lineup is one that we feel has a higher floor and may not have as much potential as other lineups but is the most stacked and consistent lineup that we enter into our tournaments. We are not feeling that great about many games tonight and as such will be heavily invested in the two games below.
Games to Target
|away||home||spread||o/u||Vegas Score Away||Proj Pts Away||Vegas Score Home||Proj Pts Home|
Unless Goran Dragic ends up sitting, tonight may be the night to pay up for Point Guard. If he doesn’t go Ish is obviously in play. Jarrett Jack is also another cheap option with all the guards from Cleveland still sitting.
Isaiah Thomas – Our play of the night with Boogie out. He should see a ton of minutes in this fast paced game. It seems like everyone is leaning on Rudy Gay tonight but Thomas will be in almost all of our lineups.
Stephen Curry – Went off last time he was in the big apple and everyone seems to have him pegged for another big night. His price has dropped across the industry which makes him much more appealing and you would be wise to fit him into some GPP lineups tonight.
Kyrie Irving – Had a monster game on Wednesday with very low ownership. Seems to have good games in streaks and we will try to ride his wave up as he did see a price jump but should still have plenty of opportunities to put up some fantastic fantasy numbers tonight against the Jazz.
Appears to be a punt position. The combination we have below should have a very high % ownership on Fanduel tonight.
Jimmy Butler – The only real mid range option we are looking at tonight. He looked good in his first game back and because of his injury his price has come down across the industry. Should be looked at in a couple lineups as he looked on after returning from injury on Wednesday.
Kent Bazemore – Completely shocked that his price is still so modest on FanDuel. He is basically a must play in tonights game and will have a very high % ownership tonight. Fading is not wise with a player this cheap however as he showed on Wednesday he can do nothing for 3.5 quarters and still meet value at such a cheap price tag.
Ben McLemore – He draws the start tonight with a shorthanded Kings squad after they moved both Federette and Thornton out of town. He should see a ton of minutes in this track meet game and as such be able to put up plenty of points to justify his modest price tag.
Kevin Durant – I think Durant makes for an interesting discussion tonight. His ownership may be lower than usual do to his perceived tough matchup. The grizzlies are tough defensively but small forwards have had some modest success. The question will be whether to fade Durant or not. Personally if you multi lineup GPPs you should have some lineups with him in it but definitely not every lineup.
Rudy Gay – Seems to be everyone’s favorite play tonight. Will definitely have some combinations with him in it but definitely won’t have him EVERYWHERE.
Carmelo Anthony – Continues to pile up points in Knicks losses and tonight should be no different. Golden State has no one that can stop him and he should put the Knicks on his back once again in a valiant losing effort.
Zach Randolph – Call this a hunch but I think ZBo is a sneaky good play tonight. Most people will either pay up for Melo and combo him with a cheap PF option like Ajinca, Williams or another King but the mid range options could be overlooked. If someone does go midrange they will most likely look at Pau Gasol who has put together a few good games since returning from injury. I like ZBo though and think he could be a very interesting contrarian play tonight.
Alexis Ajinca – Filling in if Anthony Davis cannot go is Ajinca who has put up some respectable games recently. If Davis cannot go he should see even more minutes giving him a chance to be a very sneaky value play of the night.
Joakim Noah – Other than his Birthday performance he has been on a pretty consistent tear for the past couple months. With no Boogie tonight he will be the top center most people have. He is able to rack up fantasy points in so many ways that his floor is unbelievably consistent right now.
Spencer Hawes – Has looked good for Cleveland and with Varejao still on the shelf he should see some nice run tonight. He is a mid-priced option that you should take a look at when rounding out your lineups.
Marc Gasol – One more midpriced center option. He hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire since returning from injury but he should have plenty of opportunities to produce tonight with Kendrick Perkins sidelined for the Thunder.
