Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for FantasyDraft.
In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for FantasyDraft for each night of the 2019-2020 NBA DFS season.
Mudiay should get the start with Mike Conley out and that makes him one of the top values on this slate. Mudiay should play minutes in the mid to upper 20’s tonight and has shown that when given the minutes he is productive. This season Mudiay is averaging 0.92 fantasy points per minute. Mudiay is not only going to get the boost with Conley out but I like the match-up against the Lakers a lot. This season the Lakers are allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to point guards.
F/C-Jaren Jackson Jr.-$12,200
Jackson was a player I was very high on last game with Brandon Clarke out and he paid off big time for me with 31 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks on his way to 45 fantasy points. Tonight with Clarke still out I like Triple-J to have a repeat performance of that game assuming he is able to stay out of foul trouble which I know is always a risk as the Bulls are a great match-up. This season the Bulls have the third-worst team rebounding rate and are allowing the most fantasy points per game to power forwards.
I know how much you guys love a “Revenge Narrative” and that is what we have here with Sabonis against the Thunder but that is not why I want to play him tonight. I want to play Sabonis tonight besides the fact he is damn good due to the fact the Thunder are one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA. The Thunder have the second-worst team rebounding rate in the NBA this season. Sabonis also already dominated them once this season. In that game, Sabonis had 18 points and 16 rebounds on his way to 43.5 fantasy points.
