Here's my picks for you this weekend as you play. Top heavy plays, medium plays and low-key plays right here for you! Remember, just my take, do what you like!

FRIDAY
HIGH - Chris Paul vs the Lakers
The Lakers will be on the backside of a back-to-back, and they are terrible at guarding opponent point guards when it comes to fantasy points. Paul should have a well rounded game, and he won't be your most expensive top choice.

MID - Giannis Antetokounmpo vs the Heat
He had a really solid game against Miami last time around. Heat are on their 5th straight road game and 11th out of 12, probably tired and banged up with no Whiteside at the rim. He's going to have a ton of stats.

LOW - J.R. Smith vs the Pistons
He's been shooting well lately, and this is a defensive game plan that will take the ball out of LeBron's hands and will end up more to his shooters -- Smith.

SATURDAY
HIGH - Paul George vs the Nuggets
High. Scoring. Game. That's what's on tap here and I think George will take advantage of his matchup, Big night ahead I believe.

MID - Kevin Love vs the Spurs
Listen, this is a tough matchup, but I think Love is going to have to play well, and trust me the Cavs can't get embarrassed again. He should be good for 20/10 I think.

LOW - Harrison Barnes vs the Sixers
Curry, Thompson and Green should be sitting out the 4th quarter and giving more time to Barnes and others. He should benefit from extra time.

SUNDAY
HIGH - Stephen Curry vs the Knicks
I mean, it's the Garden. Curry is going to do his thing and you should jump on board and enjoy the benefits.

MID - Andrew Wiggins vs the Trail Blazers
Wiggins is gaining experience and confidence and has been putting up good numbers. Portland is fluttering and Wiggins should jump on it.

LOW - Dennis Schroder vs the Heat
The Heat's first game back from a long January and the Hawks will have an extra day off. With the Heat having all these point guard issues, Schroder should take advantage in the second unit.
