HIGH - Paul George vs the Nets
You saw what Dwyane Wade did to them on their court. Paul George has been playing well, and at home should be very productive against one the lesser teams in the East.
MID - Brandon Knight vs the Pelicans
The Pelicans are giving up the second most FD PPG to point guards. He's on the high end of a mid-level player but should be worth the money for this game.
LOW - Gerald Green vs the Raptors
Green has been on a role lately, and he should continue to get the playing time even with Tyler Johnson returning. He's a good add at a small value to help you get other big name players.
HIGH - John Wall vs the Hornts
At home, against an undersized back court, Wall should be getting anything he wants. He should score you 40+ FD points in this game and worth the 9k plus he will cost.
MID - Zach Randolph vs the Pacers
Both teams will be on a back-to-back but the Pacers have no inside depth to guard both Gasol and Zach. With Zach coming off the bench lately, this may be the perfect game for him. He cost only about $6,200 FD and is worth every penny in this game.
LOW - JJ Redick vs the Rockets
Rockets give up 6th most points to SGs. Redick should be open from the poor defense of Harden, and the always beneficiary to the overhelp on Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
HIGH - Damian Lillard vs the Heat
Are you serious? He's going to light us up. Hopefully we still get the win, but Lillard has what it takes to make Miami scream help.
MID - Hassan Whiteside vs the Blazers
On the flip side, the Blazers give up the most FD points to centers. Whiteside is mroe of a high end player, but I thought I would add him in there. As long as Friday doesn't give you concerns, he's a good play here.
LOW - Jabari Parker vs the Suns
High scoring game ahead and he's been putting it all together lately. At about $5,000 I like him as a lower option for you to play.
I hope that helps you pick your team! Choose wisely, have fun and join us on FanDuel!
