Our Core Plays product gives you the ability to tail all of our analysts in your contests each night. We do the work for you, and you simply plug and play with our premium Core Plays. With that being said, let’s hop into the plays…
Aaron Gordon has already been ruled out again and Memphis is still missing Adams. both of these players being out should lead to even more success for the Joker. Our projection portal has him in for around 62 fantasy points but we all know his ceiling is near 100. Whenever the Nuggets are missing a high impact starter Nikola becomes a lock for me. This game should stay competitve and I think its very likely to see another triple-double from him!
With Tre Jones ruled out again we should see a solid 25+ minutes from Malaki here. Branham has made the most of his time on the court with some very solid outings against multiple teams. He is more scoring dependent but he has been shooting a lot more given all the injuires and minutes. Malaki isn’t projecting for a lot of ownership which also makes this a solid leverage play and he plays blowout minutes as well.
Note: Still waiting on some injury news that has yet to drop so stay tuned in the discord channels to get updated on it!
Sexton should be out again wwhich leads to THT playing a lot more. He shot horribly his previous game but gets a solid matchup against the tanking Spurs. Projecting to be around 50% owned and for good reason as he can add fantasy points in multiple categories and even with the price jump to 5.5k it is elite value here. Plug him in and move on!
