Rudy Gay (UTA) (PF/SF) – $3,500

  • With Bojan Bogdanovic and Danuel House out, Gay should get the start. Although the 35 year old won’t play a ton of minutes, he should play enough to pay off his cheap price tag which is min price on FD and only $100 away from being min price on DK. Definitely the best value on the slate, especially after he is announced as a starter.

Jordan Clarkson (UTA) (PG/SG) – $5,000

  • Staying with the same team, Clarkson also gets a boost with the injuries mentioned above. Just like Rudy Gay, his cheap price tag on FD makes him a lock on this slate. I’ll gladly pay 5K for the Flamer Thrower.


Rudy Gay (UTA) (PF) – $3,100

  • Lock on both sites.

Danilo Gallinari (ATL) (PF) – $4,500

  • Another injury plug in play, with John Collins out, Danilo should draw the start and push for around 30 minutes. Definitely underpriced if we expect him to play 30 in this matchup.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Evan Fournier (NYK) (SF/SG) – $4,500


  • Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,900
  • Evan Fournier (NYK) (SG/SF) – $4,900
