This feels like an opportunity to buy low on Mike Conley who is coming off a sub-par 23 DraftKings point game on Thursday night. That game was against the Clippers and certainly isn’t the first time that Chris Paul has shut down his point guard counterpart. Prior to that game, Conley scored 40+ DraftKings point in five straight, averaging 46.2 DK PPG in that span. This is easily the most productive stretch of fantasy basketball for Conley who is adept at getting to the free throw line and is being asked to shoulder much of the offense for the Grizzlies right now.
It’s hard to look past Dion Waiters with multiple position eligibility coming off two big games in a row. No one has ever accused Waiters of being afraid to shoot the rock, a task that he had done 40 times in the last two games, including 19 (!!) three point attempts. The concern here is his volatility and lack of consistent minutes. He’s scored 36+ DraftKings points in five of his last ten but has also laid out a few duds along the way. Consider him for GPP upside on this slate.
This Warriors/Spurs game was circled on my calendar for weeks, but it looks like it’s shaping up to be a snoozer. For the Spurs, Kawhi Leonard will miss the game and Tony Parker is questionable. The Warriors will be resting Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. So where does that leave us? It’s hard to overlook Patrick McCaw who has been earning a big influx in minutes with Kevin Durant out of the lineup. With the other studs out, it’s reasonable to think McCaw sees a big uptick in usage today. Outside of McCaw, I’ll be sprinkling a ton of players on both ends of this game.
What’s up, Wilson Chandler? A great run for the Nuggets forward who scored 64.5 and 34.5 DraftKings points earlier this week and followed that up with 23-8 game last night against the Celtics. Chandler will battle the Kings tonight who was the team he shredded for 64.5 DraftKings points on Monday night. Against Sacramento this season, he’s averaging 39.4 DraftKings PPG in three meetings.
