Point Guard

Malcolm Brogdon - Indiana Pacers (vs. Chicago Bulls)

The Bulls are going to have a problem matching up against the Pacers lineup tonight. The size and speed of Brogdon and Sabonis are tough asks of a Bulls lineup that are expected to be without Lauri Markkanen for 2-4 weeks as well as Otto Porter. Wendell Carter could return tonight which would help immensely but we are not sure of his confirmed status at the moment. The Bulls have allowed 116.1 points per game this season which is ranked 4th highest in the NBA. The Pacers are favored by - 5.5 points with a 225 O/U courtesy of Pointsbet.com. The Pacers seemingly have many advantages over this Bulls team that has lost four of their last six. Tomas Satoranksy is an interesting play for GPP purposes tonight. He has the speed and size to keep up with Malcolm Brogdon. Sabonis on the other hand, good luck! The Pacers have the matchups tonight, let’s see if they can capitalize.

Shooting Guard

Bradley Beal - Washington Wizards (vs. Houston Rockets)

Eric Gordon OUT - 6:04 PM EST Update: With Gordon OUT, David Nwaba & Danuel House enter the starting lineup.

The Wizards are coming off of a 13 point win against the Boston Celtics last night. Riding high, they will now match up against the Houston Rockets on the back end of a back-to-back. The Rockets come into this one losing each of their last five games. Bradley Beal has been as consistent as ever over his last five averaging 42.1 fantasy points per game. His best efforts over this span were two 55+ fantasy point performances. The Wizards are + 2 point underdogs with a 231 O/U courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other SG Option: David Nwaba - Houston Rockets (vs. Washington Wizards)

Small Forward

David Nwaba - Houston Rockets (vs. Washington Wizards)

Nwaba will join Danuel House and enter the starting lineup tonight against the Washington Wizards. Nwaba is at value pricing on Fanduel, Draftkings, and YahooFantasy making him a perfect GPP play. He sees a usage uptick and a solid matchup against either Bradley Beal or Garrison Matthews. These pairings now have me on Rui Hachimura. He's expected to match up against Danuel House. This is a favorable matchup for Hachimura.

Other SF Options: Doug McDermott - Indiana Pacers (vs. Chicago Bulls)

Power Forward

Domantas Sabonis - Indiana Pacers (vs. Chicago Bulls)

As mentioned above, I expect the Bulls to struggle to maintain Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis. Satoranksy should be a solid matchup for Brogdon but Sabonis shouldn’t have a problem scoring on Patrick Williams, Garrett Temple, or Thaddeus Young. This is a sheer matchup call. I simply don’t see a player on the Bulls capable of limiting Sabonis. Thaddeus Young must step up in order for the Bulls to keep this one close. The Pacers are favored by - 5.5 points with a 225 O/U courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other PF Option: Julius Randle - New York Knicks (vs. Atlanta Hawks)

Center

Jarrett Allen - Cleveland Cavaliers (vs. Golden State Warriors)

With Andre Drummond choosing to sit until being granted a trade, Jarrett Allen will assume the starting duties. Allen’s start comes on a perfect night. The Golden State Warriors allow a league-high 11.1 offensive rebounds per game. The offensive rebounds allowed stat has proven to be worth monitoring this season. Offensive rebounds often get overlooked as a stat but the truth is, attacking smaller teams who have trouble securing defensive and offensive rebounds can be a solid DFS strategy. Last night these stats pointed to Jakob Poeltl, who ended the game with eight offensive rebounds. Two nights ago, these stats allowed us to roster Bruce Brown who exceeded value in a big way with 18 points and seven rebounds over just 22 minutes on the court. Who was this game against you ask? The Golden State Warriors. With their current injuries, the Warriors simply don’t have the size to consistently protect the boards. The Cavaliers are + 9.5 point underdogs with a 227.5 O/U courtesy of Pointsbet.com. Despite the odds, I’m calling a Cleveland win tonight on the back of Jarrett Allen who has monster potential tonight.

Other C Option: DeMarcus Cousins - Houston Rockets (vs. Washington Wizards)
