NBA Thoughts: Safe Stud Plays

John Wall ($10,800) : The Washington Wizards, the league’s most hottest team, are the favorites tonight heading into Cleveland. John Wall has dropped at least 50 FDP in three of his last five games and tonight, and in a game where a statement should be made, a 50+ FDP game should be no problem for him. In Wall’s 19 games he faced the Cavs, he averages 20.2 ppg, 4.6 rebounds and 9.4 assists. Something noticeable to point out here is that this is his best numbers against any team in the Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers themselves are one of the worst teams in the league defending the point and in a potential game sans Kyrie Irving, whoever has the misfortune of guarding John Wall will definitely struggle tonight. Wall is a safe target if deciding to spend up at the point tonight, but I would rather use him tournaments than cash games tonight. Continue reading “NBA Thoughts: Safe Stud Plays”

1/31 Must-Haves

Kyle Lowry ($8,700)– News has just been released that DeRozan will miss the next two games, that being said, Lowry is our first Must-Have on this nice looking 6 game slate. From what Lowry looked like in 2 weeks ago, to what he looks like now, it seems to me he has found his offensive game by having 3 straight games above 44 fanduel points! With DeRozan being out, Kyle Lowry’s usage rate goes sky high. I expect this game to stay in reach until maybe the final couple of minutes so Lowry should hit value with ease. Not much else to say here!

1/24 Must-Haves

Kyle Lowry ($8,400)– With All-Star guard Demar DeRozan being sidelined for tonight’s game, Kyle Lowry is our first must have of the night. The Raptors will be at home tonight going against one of the league’s best teams: the San Antonio Spurs. They are on their 2nd end of their back to back so fatigue should play a factor in this game. Kyle Lowry should play a ton of minutes tonight and see a ton of shots go up. Rookie PG Murray should not be able to stick with Kyle Lowry. I expect this game to stay close in Toronto. The one thing that worries me is if Pop decides to stick Kwahi on Lowry.

1/24 Slate-Talk

Throughout all the hard work the team and I put together to make this site a reality, I am glad to say we are finally ready for business!  Tonight’s spicy 6 game slate features a ton of back-to-back games from teams playing yesterday and a lot of key injuries to focus on. From what we know now, both Derozan (ankle) and Embiid (knee) are ruled out tonight. One thing to note however, is that Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin will be probable to play tonight against the 76ers. So, without question, it will definitely be interesting to build a lineup tonight.

With that being said, let’s get into the slate!
