The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Kemba Walker (9) – He has been on fire lately, averaging 34.8 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists over his last 4 games and he faces the Kings in one of the highest Vegas totals of the night
  • James Harden (9) – Has 2 triple-doubles in his last 3 games, rebounding totals have gone up with Dwight Howard out, which he will likely be again tonight and the Rockets are playing in the game with the highest Vegas total tonight
  • Kawhi Leonard (8) – Should see big minutes tonight in battle of Western Conference powers against the Warriors
  • DeMarcus Cousins (8) – He has been on fire, averaging 32.6 points and 14.8 rebounds over his last 5 games
  • Danilo Gallinari (7) – Scored 30 points with 6 rebounds in his last game, averaging 36 minutes in his last 3 games
  • Spencer Hawes (7) – Averaging 33 minutes with 9 points and 10 rebounds over last 2 games with Cody Zeller out, which he will be again tonight, cheap option

Recommended

  • Emmanuel Mudiay (6) – Averaging 34+ minutes, 13.8 points and 6.8 assists over last 4 games with Jameer Nelson out
  • Rajon Rondo (6) – Coming off back-to-back triple-doubles and could be involved in a shoot-out tonight
  • Josh Smith (6) – Looks comfortable back with the Rockets and has played about 22 minutes in each of his 2 games, cheap option
  • Anthony Davis (5) – Has put up solid production over last 6 games, but it has been a while since he had a monster DFS game, maybe tonight against the Rockets if Dwight Howard is out
  • Willie Cauley-Stein (5) – Has seen increased minutes with Rudy Gay out, check on Gay’s status for tonight before considering Cauley-Stein
  • Avery Bradley (5) – Has scored 19+ points in 4 straight games 

Suggested

  • Paul Millsap (4) – Missed one game due to personal reasons, but is expected back tonight in a favorable matchup against the Nuggets
  • Andrew Wiggins (4) – Playing against the team that traded him, scored 35 points against the Cavs a couple of weeks ago
  • Manu Ginobili (4) – Coming off game with 20 points and 5 steals and will likely see an increase in minutes tonight against the Warriors
  • Victor Oladipo (4) – After missing a couple games, he returned to score 29 points in his last game
  • Norris Cole (3) – With Eric Gordon out, Cole has averaged 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists over his last 2 games, cheap option
  • Kevin Love (3) – New head coach Tyronn Lue says he wants to get Love more touches in the post, we’ll have to see if that can translate into fantasy production, plus he faces his former team the Wolves tonight
  • Jae Crowder (3) – Celtics have a high Vegas total tonight against the Wizards which could increase Crowder’s production tonight
  • Marcin Gortat (3) – Has been a consistent double-double machine this season
  • Jrue Holiday (3) – Has 9+ assists in 5 of his last 6 games
  • Gordon Hayward (3) – Consistent production every night
  • Aaron Gordon (3) – Started his last game and will likely start again tonight which could lead to an increase in minutes
  • Tobias Harris (3) – Had to predict how he will perform any given night
  • Corey Brewer (3) – Has seen a few extra minutes when Dwight Howard is out
  • Trevor Ariza (3) – Increased scoring output the last 2 games with Dwight Howard out
  • David West (3) – Should see an increase in minutes tonight with Tim Duncan out, cheap option
  • Derrick Rose (3) – Scored 20+ points in 3 of his last 4 games
  • Marc Gasol (3) – Only has 6 rebounds over his last 2 games

Hope you find the right combination to cash!
