But to the Nuggets rest their starters? Do the Clippers' players go the whole game when they are projected to win by 17 points? Will Karl-Anthony Towns be able to play in this critical game?

Favorite Players to Use for DFS Lineups

Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers

When Paul George does not play, Kawhi Leonard has a 30% usage rate and scores 1.29 fantasy points per minute. That's about all you need to know in this must-win game for the Clippers against the 27th-ranked Portland defense. Kawhi has the highest ceiling on the slate if Jokic does not play and the only thing that could keep him from going off would be if the Clippers are up by so much that Leonard does not play in the fourth quarter. 

Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves

The biggest games require huge performances from the top guys, and that is exactly what Minnesota will need from Edwards today. Especially of Towns is out, Minnesota will be looking to Edwards for offense and to set ths tone. The Spurs are the absolute worst team against shooting guards this season and have fallen all the way to 30th in defensive rating. Minnesota needs this game to have a hope of the eighth seed, so expect big minutes from Edwards. 

Kris Dunn, Utah Jazz

Kris Dunn wasn't even on this Jazz team before the end of February, but he has transformed into their most reliable fantasy producer in the wake of their top guys begin out with injury, rest, or tanking purposes. Dunn played his most minutes of the season (34) and dropped his most fantasy points (44) against the Thunder on Thursday, and while the salary has gone up everywhere, he is still one of the most reliable players today for minutes. 

Rudy Gobert, Minnesota Timberwolves

Over the last 30 games, the Spurs have been three and a half points worse than any other team against opposing centers. They allow 63.5 fantasy points per game to the position, including almost 27 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks. If Towns does not play in this one, Gobert gets a huge bump up in fantasy projections as well. 

Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

Jokic will suit up for just the second time since March 27th when he plays the Utah Jazz today. The Nuggets likely want him to get some reps in for the playoffs, so presumably he plays a full game today and is limited or out for the season finale tomorrow. The Jazz have not held Jokic in check this season, as he averages 56 fantasy points in just 31 minutes per game against them.
