Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $10,900

  • By far my favorite play on both sites. No surprise to target the Hornets tonight who played last night against the Brooklyn Nets. We all know Hornets struggle and give up a lot of fantasy points to bigs so Jokic should have a ceiling game here. No need to overthink but lock Jokic for 10.9k to start your cash game build.

Dejounte Murray (SA) (PG/SG) – $10,000

  • My other spend up will be Dejounte. Both Jokic and Murray are in prime spots to smash in great matchups. The game should be close and some what competitive for the Spurs point guard to get his usual run. Projected for 53.57, I can definitely see him hitting this and possibly have a ceiling game.


Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $12,200

  • More difficult to play him here for 12.2k but I feel like there is no way you can fade Jokic against the Hornets. There are enough value plays that you can feel comfortable playing him tonight.

Theo Maledon (OKC) (PG) – $4,500

  • With SGA out and Bazley doubtful, I will be on a few OKC players. My favorite is Theo who has been on fire his last two games posting 75 DK points. The Portland Trail Blazers are hobbled with injuries and with the spread being very close with a high total, this will be a great game to target.

Cash play Considerations


  • Caris LeVert (CLE) (SG/SF) – $4,900
  • Daniel Theis (BOS) (PF/C) – $3,800


  • Aleksej Pokusevski (OKC) (SF/PF) – $5,900
  • Tre Mann (OKC) (PG/SG) – $5,800
