RJ Barrett (NYK) (SF/SG) – $7,200

  • Randle is out and if we take a look, Barrett has had a massive bump since the All-Star break in terms of usage. Everything will be run with the former 3rd overall pick and can’t ask for a better matchup in the Atlanta Hawks.

Obi Toppin (NYK) (PF) – $3,700

  • With Randle out, Obi should draw the start at the PF position. For 3.7k and 3.2k, he is the clear best salary relief and provides tremendous value.

Alec Burks (NYK) (PG/SG) – $5,200

  • Burks is another player I am looking to start my build around as he sees a boost with Randle off the floor. He should play a ton of minutes and should benefit from his matchup against Trae Young. These 3 players are a must for me on both sites and you should not fade them in cash games.


RJ Barrett (NY) (PG/SF) – $7,600

  • Must play on both sites.

Obi Toppin (NY) (PF) – $3,200

  • Must play on both sites.

Alec Burks (NY) (PG/SG) – $5,600

  • Must play on both sites.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Giannis Antetokoumpo (MIL) (SF/PF) – $11,200


  • Alex Caruso (CHI) (PG/SG) – $4,100

Key Injury News

  • Zach LaVine – questionable
