Hello everybody, and welcome back to another DFS Karma Game Theory article by yours truly! Today there are a couple things to monitor regarding injuries and COVID-19 protocols. For injury news, please make sure to check our injury article.

Today is a great slate. Let’s go right into where I want to focus when building lineups tonight-

Milwaukee Bucks vs Washington Wizards- 

This game, if it stays close, will produce some massive fantasy scores. We’ve seen some crazy outputs from these two squads when facing each other in the past, and today both teams come in a lot healthier than they did when they faced each other the previous two times this season. If you stack the studs from this game- Westbrook, Beal, Giannis, you don’t have much salary to work with. However, I would like to have maybe one or two studs along with the complimentary pieces, (Gafford, Hachimura, Divencenzo, Holiday) just so I can have more exposure to this game. I think that Russell Westbrook is playing some of the best basketball he’s played in awhile, so I will like to have him as my stud. Giannis is a fine play as well, but I like two other PFs which I will talk about below.

Domantas Sabonis and Jayson Tatum- 

Today, I will likely use a lot of my salary at the PF position. I will obviously spend up for Westbrook in some lineups, but the other tournaments I will be playing I will want to pay up at PF. Sabonis is on a tear coming back from injury, and Tatum has the benefit of no Jaylen Brown. Pay up at PF today, there isn’t much value at the position anyhow.

Just keep an eye on news, I will have updates as news comes out. For me, my core plays at the moment include

CASH- D. Sabonis, R. Hachimura, D. Wright

GPP- J. Tatum, K. Martin, B. Simmons

Good luck tonight!
