AS NBA is a game where last-minute real-life changes are made before tipoff, always monitor breaking news up to last second!
The plays below in this daily article are low owned pivots and GPP plays. This means that these players will be RELATIVELY low owned and ‘contrarian’ relative to the more highly owned, chalky plays of the night. Remember you can access the more “safe”/”cash” plays by visiting ackarmasports.com > NBA > NBA Premium Articles. I would recommend taking a few of Bens players to build a “core lineup” around and then sprinkle in a few players from my article. THIS IS HOW YOU WIN TOURNAMENTS!!!!
Top GPP Play: De’Aaron Fox – Frank Mason is going to see double-triple the ownership as Fox tonight while seeing less minutes at a pretty close price point. These are awesome matchups at the PG position for both of them in pace up games and I’ll have a lot of GPP lineups where I plug both of them into the PG position since we’ve seen rotations for the Kings recently where Fox/Mason are on the floor at the same time.
FADE: Quinn Cook – Price is just too high for me to pay in a slower paced matchup against a team that isn’t THAT bad against the PG position.
Top GPP Play: Klay Thompson – The Warriors are going to need Thompson to step up big time and I think we see a pretty high volume shooting day from Thompson who is projected over 30 minutes coming back from injury.
FADE: Caris LeVert – Price is just way too high for a player on the Nets who are only going to get 24 minutes. He needs to have a huge FP/M game to be able to COVER his salary at this price.
Top GPP Play: Vince Carter – If you’re looking to take a punt tonight at SF, Vince Carter is your guy. He’s showed some upside when he wants to play and I guarantee he’ll be giving it all in this matchup with the Warriors. If he gets the minutes he could crush his price tag.
Fade: Josh Richardson – Priced up way too high with all these mouths to feed. Carroll/RHJ are solid defenders and should be able to contain Richardson.
Top GPP Play: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – PF is the best position of the night and I know we’re going to see a ton of ownership on all these guys but you can’t play them all. RHJ has 50 FP upside and should be very active tonight.
Fade: Serge Ibaka – Please don’t pay 5.8k for Ibaka tonight. It would basically be an automatic loss for you with these other options in the high tier.
Top GPP Play: Al Horford – The key tonight at the center is finding one that is going to play over 30 minutes. Al might be that guy and has been playing extremely well with all the injuries the Celtics have been experiencing.
Fade: Jonas Valancuinus – 7k for a player who might not even hit the 20-minute mark tonight? 7k for a player who’s usage is split between that teams two high volume scoreres while he’s on the floor? Pass.
