With tonight’s small slate of four games you have to able to set your line up apart. We have scouted out a couple of the top sleeper picks for tonight that might be your key to separating yourself from the pack.
Tony Parker ($4500)
Even with the small slate tonight Curry and Wall should dominate ownership at PG, allowing Tony Parker to fly under the radar against the lackluster 76ers. Barring if Parker gets the night off for rest, his minutes have been slowly creeping up since he returned from his foot injury three games ago. With the Spurs starting front court out tonight they will lean heavily on Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker to provide the spark on offense. Missing Aldridge and Gasol may also allow for this game to be closer than anticipated which could result in additional work for Parker as well.
Ersan Ilyasova ($5700)
Tonight’s slate provides some big names at PF as well, with Milsap, Griffin, and Morris being certified chalky Ersan Ilyasova provides a sneaky sleeper pick with high upside. With Joel Embiid remaining sidelined and Robert Covington considered doubtful the 76ers find themselves in a tough spot on the road against one of the best teams in the NBA. However with the Spurs starting front court likely to be David Lee and Dewayne Dedmon, Ilyasova is presented with a great opportunity to shine tonight. The 76ers will look to Ilyasova to provide offense and rebounding under the basket and he has proven throughout the year his ability to play well on the road. Ilyasova will be in line for minimal ownership and a high upside, the definition of a sleeper.
