Keep up to date with the latest projected & Confirmed NBA starting lineups in real-time at @nbastartlineups.
Collin Sexton ($6,200) vs Kings–Like a lot of young players Collin Sexton has been playing great to close out the season, he comes into this one averaging 22.5 PPG and 3.0 APG at a solid 46% from the field. You would like to see some more assists out of the point guard but when he is scoring this consistently I think he still offers fantasy value. There is only 3 games in tonight’s slate so Sexton at $6,200 vs the Kings, who allow the most fantasy points to opposing PGs, feels like a solid play to me.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($5,700) vs Warriors– With the numerous injuries to the Lakers, Caldwell-Pope has stepped up his scoring by putting up 19.8 PPG and 4.5 RPG on 43% shooting from behind the arc. He and Rondo seem to have a connection and since he took over the offense he has gotten some more open looks. He also hasn’t shot it under 14 times in the last 3 games and in a fast paced game vs Golden State tomorrow it should be more of the same from Caldwell-Pope.
Kevin Durant ($8,700) vs Lakers– We had Durant when he scored 21 PTS with 6 AST on 9/13 shooting but he was ejected after only playing 21 minutes. He has been shooting it at an amazing 66.1% over the last 5 games and as long as he doesn’t get ejected again tonight he should be great at this price. Even if it gets out of hand he showed in their last game that he can contribute in limited minutes. With his increase in assists along with the scoring and rebounding as of late he is a easy play for me tonight on the road in LA.
Marvin Bagley III ($6,400) vs Cavaliers– Bagley comes into this game averaging 17.6 PPG and 8.2 RPG and has seen a slight increase in minutes. He continues to come off the bench but with the minutes he is getting I wouldn’t be too worried and with the new that the Kings have shut down Harry Giles that should open up even more time for the rookie. He continues to get up tons of shots and has made a solid impact on the glass which has translated to over 32 FPTS per game over the last 5. The Cavs are allowing the 9thmost fantasy points to big men this season and with the tank in full effect I think there will be minimal defense in this one.
JaVale McGee ($6,700) vs Warriors– JaVale will be up against his former team tonight and he should have the advantage in the pick and roll vs Demarcus Cousins which is where he struggles. McGee has shown the ability to put up big fantasy numbers lately and he is averaging 16.0 PPG and 12.3 RPG in the last 6 games while playing almost 30 minutes per game. This matchup suits McGee and his game well in my opinion.
Reggie Bullock ($3,600) vs Warriors– Sticking with the Lakers I was drawn to Reggie Bullock at only $3,600 tonight vs Golden State. Bullock missed some time but in his last two games he has put up 15.5 PPG on 53.8% shooting from behind the line and if they want to keep up with the Warriors they are going to need his shooting. In a slate with only 3 games I see no issue rostering Bullock who has scored 30.25 FPTS and 19.75 FPTS in his last two games and is priced this low.
