Smaller slate today. I think that correlating your spend ups to go along with value plays makes a lot of sense.

The Heat will be short-handed today. Nunn is a lock button play on both sites today. Look for Dragic to pick up some usage along with Kelly Olynyk. They are secondary plays. Make sure you get Nunn into your lineups today.

The Blazers will be without Nurkic for 8 weeks. McCollum and Lillard will continue to soak up even more usage for the Blazers and are really strong spend ups on today’s slate. Covington has not been producing at his normal levels this season, if they deploy him for a small-ball center lineup, we expect him to produce. I think this is very possible in this matchup when Capela is off the floor. Kanter got a price increase, he is an interesting GPP target.

The Sixers will be without Joel Embiid today, Howard will start but Tony Bradley will be a great value play for the minimum on Draftkings. Ben Simmons will look to step up in this spot, I think Simmons is a priority spend up today along with the Blazers guys.

Toronto and Charolette is a very sneaky game stack. I like the Toronto guys because we bank on massive minutes and usage from them. The Charolette side is tougher to get right but targets like PJ Washington and LaMelo Ball will look to produce in this back and forth game.
