*** I’m using DraftKings’ pricing, so the picks will be geared towards that site.  But assuming there isn’t a major difference in salary, these plays can be used anywhere.  And as always, make sure to check for the latest injury news and lineup changes. ***

POINT GUARD

John Wall (WAS) $8,300 v. Phoenix

Wall has put together back-to-back 60+ point performances, and this game should be a fast-paced shootout (PHO -2, 214.5 O/U).  His price is still relatively low, and you should take advantage while you can.

Brandon Knight (PHO) $7,700 v. Washington

Knight should be good for 20+ FGA, and he does a nice job of filling out his line with peripherals.  As I mentioned with Wall, this is going to be a great game for fantasy purposes.  Load up on Suns and Wizards.

SHOOTING GUARD

James Harden (HOU) $10,500 v. Dallas

No Dwight tonight, so Harden will handle a bit more of the load.  He’s been averaging over 40 MPG in his last five, and he’s scored at least 51.5 DK points in each game during that stretch.  I expect that trend to continue tonight.

O.J. Mayo (MIL) $4,400 v. Detroit

A little bit of a flier here, but Mayo can get hot and fill it up.  When he’s hitting shots, everything’s gravy.  When he’s off, Kidd tends to yank the leash.  I think people will be scared off by only 24 minutes last game at San Antonio, so you should be able to get him at extremely low ownership.

SMALL FORWARD

LeBron James (CLE) $10,000 v. New Orleans

An up-tempo match-up against a bad defense; this is a prime spot for King James.  He hasn’t been showing off that 70 FP upside much lately, but we all know it’s there.

Jared Dudley (WAS) $3,800 v. Phoenix

The Wizards are extremely thin up front (Gortat, Nene, Humphries, and Gooden have all been ruled out), so Dudley should see a fair amount minutes tonight at the 4 (and maybe even the 5 given no Chandler on the other end).  Plug and play.

POWER FORWARD

Terrence Jones (HOU) $4,900 v. Dallas

Howard is out tonight, and I think a lot of people will naturally shift to Capela.  I think you should use Jones instead for a few reasons.  First, Capela’s minutes are highly volatile.  Even with Dwight out, he’s seen as few as 15 minutes in a game (Chuck Hayes got Howard’s minutes in lieu of Capela one night, and Hayes got released the next).  Next, Jones’ price is much better than Capela’s ($4,900 v. $5,800 respectively).  And Jones offers a little more flexibility at PF than Capela can at C.  Finally, as touched on initially, Jones will probably be lower-owned than Capela while having as much, if not more, upside.

Jon Leuer (PHO) $4,100 v. Washington

Markieff is allegedly giving it a go, but Tyson Chandler remains out.  As I pointed out when discussing Jared Dudley, the Wizards have very little depth and size up front tonight.  I think Phoenix will go small too and give Leuer minutes that might otherwise go to Alex Len.  As an aside, Leuer’s coming off a game where he played 38 minutes and scored 42 FP.  That should further tip the Leuer/Len scale in Jon’s favor.

CENTER

Greg Monroe (MIL) $6,900 v. Detroit

Revenge game.  Drummond has been putting up some phenomenal fantasy numbers this season, but he plays so soft on D.  He’s making a concerted effort to foul less, so he often sacrifices easy points inside to stay on the floor.  Monroe should feast tonight.

Al Horford (ATL) $6,700 v. Lakers

The only concern here is how many minutes will he see?  The Lakers are horrible against opposing bigs, and Horford should have a field day while he’s on the floor.  I think he’s in line for 1.5 FP/min (maybe more).  As long as he gets 28 minutes, he’s good to go.  There’s 50 FP upside here at less than $7k, so I’m willing to gamble a little.

That wraps it up for tonight.  Quick review: just stack the Wizards/Suns game.  Good luck tonight!
