De’Aaron Fox ($8,800) vs Nets- De’Aaron Fox has quietly had an excellent year for the Kings. He comes into this game averaging 29.3 PPG 7.8 APG and 3.5 RPG on a very respectable 48.9% from the field in the last 4 games. He will be up against a Nets team tonight that is having issues stopping anyone and lacks real rim protection. This means there should be ample opportunity for Fox to drive and finish at the rim, and this is what he does best. Even if it’s the 2nd game of a back-to-back I have confidence in Fox.
Joe Harris ($5,400) vs Kings- Joe Harris is one of the best shooters in the league and even with the talent around him in Brooklyn, he has still been able to put up some respectable numbers. Those numbers should improve even more with Kevin Durant out of the lineup due to injury. When Durant has been out, Harris has been able to get up more shots and he has easily been able to eclipse 25 FPTS. This is very solid for someone at this price and if he gets hot we should see him score even more against a poor Sacramento defense.
Kevin Huerter ($6,200) vs Knicks- The Hawks are down multiple key pieces on the offensive end which has allowed Huerter to step up and have a bigger role in the offense. In the last 5 games, he has put up 14.6 PPG 4.4 APG, and 3.8 RPG and has shot an excellent 45.2% from 3. This is good for 30 FPTS and his floor is relatively high because of his ability to run the offense with Trae Young is off the floor and his habit of hitting shots from long range. At this price, I don’t see many options that have as much upside as Huerter vs the Knicks.
Domantas Sabonis ($9,100) vs Bulls- Sabonis continues to be one of the better PFs in the NBA and his numbers prove that. Coming into this game he is averaging 17.2 PPG 9.0 RPG and 5.2 APG which is even down from his averages on the season. He stuffs the stat sheet in a way a lot of big men in the NBA don’t. It is also a plus that he is going up against the Bulls, who are allowing the 2ndmost FPTS to opposing big men this season on DK. There isn’t a huge selection of big men in tonight’s slate so I am going to pay up for the big man that I think is the best.
Richaun Holmes ($6,000) vs Nets- Richaun Holmes has built on the success he had last year and has put up some solid numbers for a good offensive team in the Kings this season. He is averaging 13.2 PPG 6.8 RPG and 1.2 BPG in the last 5 games and has shot it at over a 60% clip as well. The Nets don’t’ have a real center other than Deandre Jordan and they usually go small which should benefit from Holmes. He should be able to attack the glass with more success in this matchup so at this price I am willing to have Holmes on my roster.
Deni Avdija ($4,000) vs Rockets- Rookie Deni Avdija has struggled shooting the ball by the %’s but he is still getting up a good amount of shots and his confidence doesn’t look completely shaken. It is also good to see him averaging over 7 boards in the last 4 games and even though he hasn’t scored it well, been able to put up over 20 FPTS in those games as well. In my opinion, he offers the most upside of all the players in this range, especially if he can just get a couple more shots to start falling.
