The first note is that Tyrese Haliburton immediately moves into orange/cash consideration as one of the strongest plays on the slate if Fox were to sit.

This is a Covid/injury news-driven slate, I feel like we can take advantage of staying on top of news and using the late swap to gain an edge.

Jalen BrunsonDorian Finney-Smith, and Josh Richardson are all going to miss tonight. Trey Burke and James Johnson are building blocks on today’s slate. Luka Doncic is the best spend up on tonight’s slate.

Evan Fournier will miss another game tonight, James Ennis is an intriguing value play if he is once again in the starting lineup. Nikola Vucevic will be asked to take on a massive usage/scoring role due to the injuries the Magic are facing.

I plan on investing in Jusuf Nurkic until he is priced above 7k. Damian Lillard finally had his ceiling game last time out, he is an interesting GPP target with the masses flooding to Luka.

I am not very interested in Drummond for cash. He is a great GPP target at his current tag.

Russell Westbrook has been ruled out for tonight’s contest. Bradley Beal is a fantastic play and Raul Neto is an interesting value play. We have strong value on this slate so he may not be necessary.

Chris Paul is a rest candidate after playing massive minutes last night. Devin Booker would become an interesting play if he were to sit.

Jimmy Butler walks into a great pace up spot tonight. I believe he’s underpriced on both sites and a very strong play.

KAT is returning to the lineup tonight and will be limited. The Timberwolves are out of play with him back. DeMar DeRozan has really good usage to start the season and has great scoring potential every night. He is a better tournament target since he is so scoring dependent.
