Well the NBA season has finally hit February, and the ASB is coming up, yay! Anyway, the number of games in the slate tonight is the same as last nights, so let’s just jump right into it.
BRANDON JENNINGS (5,600 FD , 5,100 DK)
With Derrick Rose out not only today but tomorrow, Brandon Jennings picks up the load at PG. Against the Hawks (keep in mind the 4OT) Jennings was able to produce an underwhelming 18/3/11- in 53 minutes. Although he won’t touch 53 minutes tonight, Jennings scores 29.5 FP with Rose off the court compared to 17.6 FP with Rose in the line up. This statistic may be skewed due to the 4OT game though. He will still be able to exceed value on both sites, though better on DK, on Fanduel he is still an amazing cash option that will exceed his value.
IVICA ZUBAC (3,900 FD , 3,500 DK)
I don’t know where to start with this young fella. From the beginning of the year til now, he’s progressed so much. Being a Laker fan personally, I’ve been watching him since he first played in the summer league. Now, Luke is giving him the ability to develop by giving him 20+ minutes in the past couple of games. It doesn’t look like Luke is going to stop giving him minutes either, with a recent quote that he might even start in the near future. Mozgov definitely won’t be needed tonight with Jokic out for Denver, which allows Zubac to get his usual 20+ minutes of playing time. One play I will pivot to in GPP’s will be Tarik Black, who recently got 30 minutes in the previous game against Utah with Julius Randle out. If he does gets the same minutes, I can assure you the production will be completely different from last game.
