Slate Summary

  • Round 2 of the NBA 2022 Playoffs! Although NBA is almost near the end, this is the most exciting time of the year. We will have 2 game slates from now on for a little while and it will come to the wire with the slightest tweak of a 2v2 that could make or break your day. BC Boy Brandon Clarke is my cover boy for FD. With Steven Adams out of the rotation and with COVID, Clarke has excelled and thrived off of the opportunity. Brooks was definitely up there as an option to be my favorite play today for 5.2k. He chucks the ball and gets quality minutes. Both of these two will be very high owned. My next two core plays are from the Celtics. Smart and Horford are both locks for me today mainly due to their price tag. All of them are the top 4 in terms of point per dollar and will be chalk.


  • Brandon Clarke (MEM) (PF/C) – $5,900
  • Marcus Smart (BOS) (SG/PG) – $6,300
  • Dillon Brooks (MEM) (SG/SF) – $5,200
  • Al Horford (BOS) (PF/C) – $5,300
