Willie Cauley-Stein ($4,600)– Our first Must Have on today’s today’s 12 game slate is Willie Cauley-Stein. The Sacramento Kings superstar DeMarcus Cousins is suspended from tonight’s contest verse the Boston Celtics because he picked up his 16th technical foul of the season. Without Cousins sky-high usage rate, all Kings players should have a huge boost in value and production. I’m targeting Cauley-Stein because he should be in for a terrific spot verse a Celtics team who ranks 9th worst against opposing Power Forwards and are known for being horrific on the glass! In addition, WCS has been terrific when he gets minutes! In his last 4 games when he’s received 20 minutes of playing time or more he’s had 20+ fanduel points in all of those outings! I would highly assume he plays 20+ minutes tonight if he stays out of foul trouble! This is my favorite value play on the board for tonight’s slate! Bold prediction: Willie Cauley-Stein hits 7x value tonight! Yes, you’re reading this correctly… 7x value!
Willie Cauley-Stein Bold Fanduel Projection- 32.2
Wilson Chandler ($6,000)- Our second Must Have on today’s slate is Wilson Chandler! The Nuggets are without Gallinari for the 4th straight game and in that 3 game stretch Chandler had two great performances and one very poor performance. The one poor performance was verse one of the leagues top defenders (Kawai Leonard). Tonight, Wilson Chandler is in a great spot verse the Hawks without Thabo Sefolosha yet again. Without Sefolosha, the Hawks are forced to start Tim Hardaway Jr. which means Bazemore will most likely be covering Chandler tonight. Bazemore has struggled on defense of late giving up a monster line to Gordon Hayward and even allowing 28 fanduel points to Aaron Gordon. Wilson Chandler has a much better skills set than Aaron Gordon and I see no reason why Wilson Chandler shouldn’t have 30+ fanduel points tonight. This guy has some major upside for just 6k on FanDuel. If I were you, I’d just plug him into your lineups and move onto the next position!
Wilson Chandler Fanduel Points Projection: 35.7
Ricky Rubio ($6,700)
This is my gut pick of the night! Statistics aren’t backing me up on this one but I just have a feeling on Mr.Rubio tonight. Without LaVine, Rubio should have the ball in his hands more often and have a slight increase in minutes as well. Even though Kyle Lowry’s defense is improving, I still like to pick on him. I’m calling a 15 point 15 game from Rubio with mad upside in your GPP lineups.
Ricky Rubio Bold Fanduel Points Projection- 38.8
