A three-game slate is not ideal for my taste, but the show must go on! My personal strategy will be to fade the $13k Westbrook and hold a balanced roster overall. Let’s hope this works, but these are some guys I’ll be targeting:

Derrick Rose $5,800
DRose has been a sight to see all year, and is in a good spot tonight in a high PACE game. With the news of Carmelo battling through a shoulder issue, I’m thinking Rose will see more shot opportunities. Highest game total on the slate (215).
Dwyane Wade $6,200
Jimmy Butler is a game-time-decision tonight, so it’s only right that Wade picks up the slack. I do expect Butler to suit up, but I’ll roll the dice on a nationally televised game. Wade has been dishing at a high rate in his last 4 games as well, averaging 5 assists!
Nikola Mirotic $4,700
Mirotic is naturally a solid rebounder, and has recently seen more minutes. In his last 5 games, he’s hit at least two three-pointers & added a block in 4 of those games also!
Kristaps Porzingis $7,400
Porzingis has looked spry in his past two games following an achilles injury, scoring 35 & 41 fantasy points respectively. He’ll have an exciting matchup at home tonight, and has upped his per game average to two blocks a game this year.
Anthony Davis $11,100
Davis is my favorite play of the night! As my strategy is to fade Westbrook (typing this hurts) due to how expensive he is, I’m all in on Davis. The bright lights of MSG should bring out a big game in him, so I’m looking to roster him with Kristaps. He’s averaged 54 DK points in his last four games.
*JJ Barea $4,000
His minutes aren’t guaranteed, but his production is sweet. In his first game back he only saw 17 minutes of run, but was able to produce 7 points, 7 assists, & 4 rebounds. If he gets 20 minutes, the value’s there!
*Robin Lopez $3,900
This is a tough matchup for Lopez, as Steven Adams is a beast. The Bulls need to throw someone on Adams, so Lopez should see the court plenty. He could surprise and get double digit points & rebounds. Prior to his last game, he put up eight straight with at least 1 block!
