So, we hope you have a great Christmas and play FanDuel as well! Top heavy plays, medium plays and lowkey plays right here for you! Remember, just my take, do what you like!
HIGH - James Harden vs the Cavaliers
Cleveland is on a back-to-back and Harden will have to be super active and productive to keep the Rockets in this one. Look for him to score 30+ points, and see what he does with assists and rebounds.
MID - Brook Lopez vs the Blazers
Portland typically gives up a lot of fantasy points to center and Lopez has been playing good. He is usually a solid pick, but here I think he will exceed his value.
LOW - Tyler Johnson vs the Nuggets
Without Goran Dragic, the Heat will play Johnson more, hopefully. Udrih may still start, but it is probably time for him to get some extra burn and he could score well for them in this one.
HIGH - John Wall vs the Celtics
Boston doesn't really have a stopper at point guard. Isaiah Thomas should just get out of the way. Wall plays well on back-to-backs to make up for his team and should drop a good game here I think.
MID - Gordon Hayward vs the Lakers
At home, I see Hayward having a hay-day against a team that doesn't defend well. He should contribute all around and score well.
LOW - Jae Crowder vs the Wizards
On the flip side, I think Crowder will take advantage of how the Wizards will play a little small and lanky. Crowder can get easy bucket and pick up miscellaneous stats for you.
HIGH - Russell Westbrook vs the Heat
No one will be able to stop him. I don't want to talk about it.
MID - Karl-Anthony Towns vs the Suns
An up and down game will produce plenty of rebounds and block opportunities for Towns. He should even score well against a small front line.
LOW - Gerald Green vs the Thunder
The Heat will probably be playing from behind a lot, and so more bench time and more shots from Green. You don't get penalize for missing, so Green will take them.
I hope that helps you pick your team! Choose wisely, have fun and join us on FanDuel!
