De'Anthony Melton , PG/SG $3,800 - Melton may be the chalk value play of the night outside of the 76ers players as his DK price tag makes little sense for him to still be under $4,000. Over the last three games he has given us 18.5 FP in 16 minutes, 22.75 FP in 21 minutes and 25.75 FP in 22 minutes. When on the floor this season he has a usage rate of 18.8% and he averages 0.98 FP/min. This is a great matchup for him against the banged up Cavaliers and there is an eventual path for him to play a bigger role in this Grizzlies rotation.
Cameron Johnson , SF/PF $4,200 - I love this spot for the Suns tonight as they face a Wizards team that ranks first in the NBA in pace which means a big pace up spot for a Suns team that ranks dead last in pace this season. Johnson has stepped up his play of late, averaging 26 FP over the last three games while playing 27 and 29 minutes over the last two. When on the floor this season Johnson has a usage rate of 20.3% and he is averaging 0.97 FP/Min.
Danny Green & Tyrese Maxey, SG/SF & PG $4,700 - Putting both Sixers players in here tonight as the short-handed team will have both of these guards on the floor a lot against the Hawks. Maxey played 44 minutes against the Nuggets and went for 61 FP. Green played 36 minutes and scored 27 FP while taking 17 shots. Denver is a much better defensive team than the Hawks and if playing 35-to-40 minutes again tonight I think they easily crush value at under $5,000 even with Joel Embiid back.
Kevin Huerter , SG $4,900 - Huerter has already been playing a decent amount of minutes lately but the injury to Bogdan Bogdanovic will only increase his usage when on the floor with the Hawks second unit. Huerter has played at least 30 minutes in each of the last three games and in four of the last five games he has scored at lest 24 FP with a high of 33 FP just a few nights ago against the Hornets.
Rui Hachimura , SF $4,900 - Hachimura played 25 minutes against the Miami the other night but that was the second night of a back-to-back. In the first game against Boston he played a season high 37 minutes. With the Wizards without Westbrook tonight I can see Hachimura taking on a bigger roll in the offense while seeing a boost in minutes than the 25 he played against the Heat. This is a big pace down spot for the Wizards as they face the Suns who rank dead last but the Wizards also rank first in pace so there will certainly be points scored here. Hachimura has a 22.7% usage rate while averaging 0.92 FP/min with Westbrook off the floor this season.
Mitchell Robinson , C $6,200 - We love to attack the Hornets front court, especially at the center position. Robinson has played over 30 minutes in two of the last three games and we are finally getting those blocks and steals we longed for. Yes, Julius Randle does take up a lot of the front court production for the Knicks but this is a good matchup for Robinson to have one of his better performances of the season.
