Top Tier Core Plays

Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks

He had a bad game yesterday, so what? He's one of the best fantasy producers in the game and even with Kyrie Irving this year, he has a 36% USG and averages 1.6 FP/min.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder

Even if Jalen Williams returns, it doesn't matter, SGA has been an MVP candidate with Williams all year long. On the year, SGA has a 33% USG and averages 1.58 FP/min. This game has the highest implied total and is the only game on the board with two teams in the top 10 in pace.

Jalen Brunson, New York Knicks

So yeah, Jalen Brunson. Good at basketball. He's put up 47+ DKP in five straight games and has 32+ actual in four of five without Julius Randle. With everyone that's out/traded for the Knicks, Brunson sits at a 34% USG and 1.33 FP/min. He's also playing 40+ minutes a night.

Alperen Sengun, Houston Rockets

He's used a hub to start and now every possession will run through Sengun. With FVV and Eason out, Sengun has a 27.4% USG and 1.37 FP/min. This is an amazing spot for the Rockets considering Indiana is second in pace and 26th in DRtg.

Mid-Tier Core Plays

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves

On the year, Towns has been good, but outside of the 62-point game, all the talk around Minnesota has been on Anthony Edwards. Despite that, Towns has a 27.8% USG and 1.23 FP/min, which is second and T1 respectively. He's shooting north of 40% from three and the Bulls are the worst 3PT defense in the league.

Donte DiVincenzo, New York Knicks

Another 40 minutes are incoming for DDV here. I understand it's a little bit of sticker shock when it comes to 7.4K on DK, but he's topped 40 DKP in three of four games and has scored 20+ points in four straight. He's taken 15+ threes in all four games too, so if they fall at a high clip, he has slate-breaking upside.

Jalen Green, Houston Rockets

Nobody on the Rockets gets a bigger usage bump on than Green when Fred VanVleet's out. Green's bump is +6.3% up to a robust 33.8% while also putting up 1.13 FP/min. Big pace up spot, great match-up and all the usage. Sounds great to me!

Franz Wagner, Orlando Magic

The minutes are ALL the way back for Wagner and so is the production. He's coming off 38 actual points and has now put up 37+ DKP in four straight games, which is right on par with his seasonal average. He draws a Heat team that's 2-8 over their last 10 games and during that span are 21st in DRtg.

Jalen Williams, Oklahoma City Thunder

I love the Thunder tonight in Utah. It's hard not to want as much exposure as possible. Williams has stepped into such an elite playmaking role with this team and after missing a week, it looks like he's going to be back here. We'll see if there are any limitations if in fact he does return, but this spot against Utah is ELITE.

Isaiah Hartenstein & Josh Hart, New York Knicks

I like both guys to collect a LOT of rebounds against a short-handed Memphis team that is poised to miss a lot of shots. Hartenstein has 12+ rebounds in three straight games and 31+ DKP in all three as well, despite facing limitations and foul trouble in two of them. If Josh Hart ever makes shots, he'll break a slate because four times in five games he's given us 33+ DKP but has only one shot better than 43% during that span.

Value Tier Core Plays

Jabari Smith Jr., Houston Rockets

Look, I understand how poorly Smith Jr. has played, but whatever THIS version has been won't continue for much longer. The Rockets are playing without Fred VanVleet tonight and Smith gets a 3% USG bump and averages .94 FP/min without FVV. His price has cratered to the lowest number of the season tonight and it's in an ELITE spot against the Pacers.

Amen Thompson, Houston Rockets

The field is expecting Amen Thompson to start here and the last time we saw VanVleet sit, he started over Aaron Holiday and had a monster game. He's a chalk monster but he's a REALLY good FP/min player. Thompson's at 1.09 FP/min this year and with VanVleet off the floor he's at 1.15.

Dennis Smith Jr., Brooklyn Nets

There isn't a massive sample with Johnson, Sharpe, Finney-Smith, and Walker being out, but with those four off the floor, DSJ has a 23% USG and averages 1.3 FP/min, which is first on the team amongst all those that have a decent sample of minutes. He's going to be very popular and we saw when Walker left after four minutes on Monday, Smith played 31 minutes.

Royce O'Neale, Brooklyn Nets

After playing 27 minutes on Monday, O'Neale will be in line for an even heftier workload with Dorian Finney-Smith, Lonnie Walker IV, and Cameron Johnson ruled out. O'Neale isn't an amazing FP/min producer, but the opportunity is right in front of him.
