Last night was interesting to say the least.  With 10 minutes left till line ups locked, the news came down that LeBron James was going to play.  Then the scramble started because almost everyone was on Kyrie Irving after his 55 point performance.  One bit of advice I can give you guys is you need to use Twitter for news and you need to be able to be around till line up lock.  For example, you gotta leave the house for something an hour before line up lock and don’t have access to change your line ups, I recommend not playing that night.  With the way the NBA jerks us around with injury news you gotta be able to make that necessary line up change.  It could be matter of a winning night or a losing night.  Ok enough rambling. Tonight we have a big 11 game slate. That’s because there is some kind of “Big Game” going on Sunday night.  My prediction for the game is 24-13 and Tom Brady wins another Super Bowl.

Point Guards

Stephen Curry is going to challenge James Harden for top play of the day.  Golden St. will host Phoenix with the O/U opening at 227 ½.  This game features the two fastest paced teams in the NBA.

You can consider Russell Westbrook if Kevin Durant  is out again.  I do like Curry better if I had to choose between the two of them.  OKC is on the road in a pace down game.

John Wall should fly under the radar at home against Toronto.  Makes for a good GPP play.

D.J. Augustin had a terrible game Wednesday night at Philly.  It’s not a bad thing cause it keeps his price down.  He faces a tough on ball defender in Patrick Beverley but I’m going back to the well.

Brian Roberts is cheap and draws the start with Kemba Walker out.

Zach LaVine is a cheaper option if Mo Williams is out.

Take a look at Goran Dragic and even Isiah Thomas in a game with such a huge O/U.

Shooting Guards      

James Harden usage rate is 35.1% without Dwight Howard on the court.  I think that says enough.

Klay Thompson has been on fire lately.  Did I mention he plays in a game with a O/U of 227 ½.  If I could roster him twice, I would.

I like rostering Monta Ellis in fast paced close games.  The last three weeks or so the Magic have been a more uptempo offense.  It’s not a coincidence there defense has really struggled.  He should be low owned and makes for a GPP play.

Kevin Martin is back has his price hasn’t caught up on some sites.  Especially on Draft Kings where he is only $4,600.  He is coming off the bench and playing about 30 minutes.

Gerald Henderson is a nice value play with Kemba Walker sidelined with a knee injury.

Small Forwards

I don’t know if I mentioned but Golden St. plays in a home game with a O/U at 227 1/2 .  So Draymond Green is in play even though he hasn’t been overwhelming lately.

Kawhi Leonard is really the only player I like taking on the Spurs.  Clippers have a hard time guarding the wings.

Josh Smith has had this game circled on his calendar since joining the Rockets.  He has revenge on his mind and Dwight Howard is out.

Chandler Parsons was a surprised scratch on Friday.  If he is out again Al-Farouq Aminu will be a source of salary relief..

Power Forwards

LaMarcus Aldridge is playing through torn ligaments in his left thumb.  You would never know it.  He torched the Cavs on Wednesday and the Hawks on Friday.  Now he gets to feast on the Bucks.

Zach Randolph has a double/double in 15 out of his last 16 games.

Donatas Motiejunas played great against a Boston team on Friday that can’t defend PF’s.  He gets to go up against Detroit that gives up the 3rd most points to PF’s.

Kris Humphries is cheaper than Nene and been out playing him.  He has been doing most of his work on the glass. Nene is questionable as of right now.

If Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia are out again John Henson becomes a value play.


Al Jefferson is under priced on Draft Kings at only $7100.  Denver has on one to match up with him.

Tyson Chandler get to face the Magic and there terrible front court defense.  The Magic give up the 2nd most fantasy points to centers.

I’m not seeing much value at center.  Chris Kaman is about as far as I would go.  He’s never highly owned, so he’s a GPP play for sure.  Going up against a Milwaukee front court shouldn’t really strike fear in anyones eyes.

Don’t forget to check twitter for any late scratches and player news.  As always you can catch me on twitter @realdaddybigs or leave a comment below. Good luck this weekend in your games.

    H2H points league. Scoring goes 1/2/2/3/3/-3
    I have a dilemma tonight. We can play 8 guys a night and I’m stuck picking between Tobias, GHill, Conley, and nurkic for my 3 utility spots. If I were to leave one out, who would it be? Definetly think nurkic has to play, especially because bigs have a lot more upside in points leagues (DD worth extra 5). Any advice would great! Thanks!
