Head Coach Terry Stotts says he anticipates Mo Williams will not play in Game 3.
Williams is dealing with a groin injury that he continue to aggravate in each of the first two games of the team's second round series with the Spurs, so the team is leaning towards giving him the night off with the hopes he could be ready for Game 4 at home on Monday. If Williams sit that only increases Damian Lillard and Wes Matthews value in DFS contests as they would see a few extra minutes with either Earl Watson and/or Will Barton picking up reserve minutes, but not enough to warrant them become a sleeper play in daily league contests.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jonathan Gray is expected to start for the Rockies Tuesday.
Gray was the third overall pick in 2013, but his minor league numbers have not exactly lived up to his lofty draft status. In 21 games at Triple-A this season, Gray has a 4.33 ERA, 3.89 FIP and 2.68 K/BB rate. While he probably needs to be owned in deeper leagues and keeper leagues, it is going to be awfully hard to feel confident starting him in Coors until he has some big league success. He could be a sneaky tournament play for DFS Tuesday against the strikeout-prone Mariners, but Gray could easily give up five home runs as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Nationals on Sunday.
Duda is absolutely on fire and is a must-start until he shows signs of slowing down. He became the first Mets player in franchise history to hit nine home runs in an eight-game span after his 21st bomb of the season tonight. Duda was middling around this summer until coming on strong this past week. In his last eight games he has nine homers, 11 hits and a ridiculous 1.393 slugging percentage. This is obviously something Duda won’t be able to keep up, but until he drops off keep him in your lineup. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
