Slate Summary

  • We have a week left of the NBA regular season which means there will be players sitting giving us an abundant amount of value on this 8 game slate. The teams I am looking to focus on are the Timberwolves and Knicks. The Rockets have been the worst defensive team all season long so players like KAT for 8.7k and Dlo for 5.3k are just way too cheap in this matchup. There are blowout concerns but even in limited minutes, they can pay off their price and even crush which I am expecting them to do. Julius Randle is out which gives Barrett and Toppin the biggest bump for the Knicks. With all this value, my favorite spend up is Dejounte at 10.3k. We can easily play him in one of the best matchups. Again, there are blowout concerns and playing DFS in the last week is always more risky but it’s too good to fade tonight. I really like KAT today but McGee starting instead of Ayton today for almost min price is definitely in the back of my mind. Unfortunately, you can only roster 1 center on FD so there are ways you can attack this slate but the two-time Shaqtin’ a Fool winner is someone you can pivot off KAT if you think the game gets out of hand.
