Kevin Porter Jr, SG/SF HOU ($3,200) - KPJ made his Rockets debut last night and played 29 minutes, scoring 13 points with five rebounds, 10 assists, one block and three steals. He benefited from injuries to John Wall and Eric Gordon . Tonight, Wall, Gordon and Oladipo have already been ruled out. KPJ is likely going to start and play a boat load of minutes. This game also has a 17.5 point spread so in the likely event of a blowout we can expect KPJ to get those minutes as well.
Markieff Morris , PF LAL ($4,300) - Back from the break but the same news for the Lakers with Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol ruled out. We had seen Morris start three straight for the Lakers while playing over 30 minutes in each of the last two while producing at least 23 fantasy points in each of those three games. I think Morris should be starting here once again and is a good price.
Derrick White , PG/SG SAS ($4,900) - It wasn't a great return for White who shot just 1-of-8 from the floor but I loved seeing the 27 minutes and with DeMar DeRozan ruled out tonight we should see White play a similar role for the Spurs this evening against a banged up Orlando team. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I think a bounce back from White is in order here in a good matchup.
Michael Carter-Williams , PG ORL ($4,900) - We love to attack the Spurs with opposing point guards and here we have MCW with Evan Fournier , Terrence Ross and Aaron Gordon already ruled out. We saw him go for 17 points, four rebounds and seven assists last night in a tough matchup against the Heat. Against the Hawks prior to the break he dropped 20 points with six boards and seven assists. I like the upside and the price in this spot.
Kenyon Martin Jr, SF HOU ($3,500) - So, let me get this out of the way first, Martin is ALSO a great value on DraftKings tonight at min-price $3,000 so feel free to use him there as well as most will. That said, the small forward position on FanDuel is a struggle tonight once you get past LeBron and Jimmy Butler and I think many will look at Martin here at min-price and Kevin Porter Jr who is also a SF at FanDuel though priced up to $4,900. John Wall , Victor Oladipo , Eric Gordon and Danuel House have already been ruled out. Martin is going to play a lot of minutes. Last night he scored 13 points with nine rebounds and three blocks over 32 minutes.
Kelly Olynyk , C MIA ($4,500) - With Joel Embiid expected to play we move off Dwight Howard and focus on Olynyk here against the Bulls in a prime matchup. With Bam Adebayo missing the last two games we have seen OIynyk thrive, finishing with 38 and 40 FP. He is my top spend down at the center spot for those not playing Embiid.
