Today is a day of many things to be thankful for. I’m thankful it’s the start of Mardi Gras season. I’m thankful that I’s Friday. I’m thankful for the free tickets I got to go see the Clippers and the Pels play tonight. And finally, I’m thankful we have a full slate of games tonight to choose from tonight in daily fantasy basketball. I hope to keep he hot streak going for the playbook, so let’s make some more cash. As always, my prices are according to DraftKings. Good luck
Chris Paul ($9,400) – Maybe it’s because I get to see him at the Smoothie King Arena tonight, but I am really high on CP3. Jrue Holiday is still out, and I highly doubt Tyreke Evans will be guarding him. I also firmly believe in revenge games for players who return away against their former teams. Paul has proven to play better against his friends, so I am going all in on him returning to New Orleans tonight.
Jarrett Jack ($6,200) – Jack continues to run the show really well in Brooklyn while Deron Williams is sidelined. He’s been out playing his value pretty consistently, and it’s hard to pass on a guy who hit 34+ fantasy points in five out of his last six games.
Mario Chalmers ($4,800) – Chalmers gets a bump tonight because of the lack of Dwayne Wade and Luol Deng. I think Bosh will be the biggest benefactor, but I really like Chalmers as a sneaky play. He put over 30 fantasy points against the Mavs the first time they played. I see Chalmers as a snaky cash play/great GPP play.
James Harden ($11,000) – What can I say about Harden that hasn’t already been said? He’s an absolute monster and one of the best daily fantasy players out there. With Dwight Howard probably missing tonight’s game, I can’t find a reason not to roster him.
Kevin Martin ($4,600) – Martin doesn’t appear to be on a heavy minutes restriction and played very well in his first game back since November. His price tag is extremely low for a guy who can consistently score 20 points with a couple assists and rebounds scattered in there. It won’t take much for him to hit value, and I easily see that happening tonight against the Sixers.
Draymond Green ($7,600) – Don’t sleep on Green with Klay Thompson and Steph Curry taking the spotlight. He is a guy that can easily hit 40 fantasy points on a given night. Utah is thin at the position as well, and Green should have his way with them on the court.
Danny Granger ($3,600) – Boy is this a blast from the past. Granger is coming off a game in which he played 36 minutes. I’m not going all in on the Heat tonight, but that have a lot of great value in their players tonight. Granger is strictly a GPP play for me, but he can easily hit over 20 fantasy points for next to nothing in cost.
Jared Sullinger ($6,600) – I keep recommending Sully and I don’t know why I can’t quit him. Maybe it’s because the last time he played the Rockets he dropped 35 fantasy points. Or maybe it’s because the Rockets will be without Dwight Howard tonight and neither Josh Smith nor Terrence Jones scare me away from using him. Either way, Sully should be in line for a solid game.
Thaddeus Young ($) – If you haven’t caught on, I am a big fan of revenge games. Young is going back to Philly to face the team that traded him. He’s been averaging almost 40 fantasy points a game, and I got to think he’ll get that extra push tonight to make Philly’s defense look even sillier than normal. If you can fit him in your lineup, I’d pay up for him.
Blake Griffin ($9,600) – I like Griffin tonight as I always do, but I really like him if Anthony Davis sits tonight’s game. Keep an eye on if Davis plays tonight. If he doesn’t, I’d try to find a way to get Griffin in my lineup.
Chris Bosh ($7,700) – It’s really hard to pass up on Bosh tonight. His price is very favorable and he’s going to be the focal point of the offense with Dwayne Wade and Luol Deng out tonight. I’m using him across the board tonight and not looking back.
Chris Kaman ($4,300) – Kaman has been getting consistent minutes every game to warrant a shot in a GPP. He has been hitting value consistently and the Blazers will rely on him tonight to help slow down the backcourt of Atlanta.
