Core Plays

Stacking the Clippers without Paul George is tempting tonight

All four of Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell are popping off the page to me tonight, and frankly, I wouldn’t be afraid to go 3 or 4 men deep.

On a six game slate, and especially where they have one of the most favourable matchups overall as a group, they should all have plenty of opportunities to dominate the opposition.

With Paul George out of the lineup for the Clippers, Leonard dominates in the usage department – but Williams picks up a lot of the slack, too. Leonard checks in with a 36.9% usage mark in the split, with Williams not far behind at 30.3%. Both see additional minutes and touches overall, with Williams holding a healthy 33.8% AST% as well. Get both active with confidence here, with Williams holding more ROI upside at the price.

Beverley should be relied on for PG2 slots given a nice price and necessity for minutes against Collin Sexton / Darius Garland who are both playing pretty well these days. Despite low usage (13.5% in the split without George), he still averages nearly 30 fantasy points per 36 minutes and should easily eclipse the 25 point mark.

The last is Harrell, who is in a plus spot but may get slightly overshadowed by the likes of Deandre Ayton who is in a plus situation here against the Hawks. Don’t sleep on the Clippers’ big man here, as he’s eclipsed 41 fantasy points in 3 of his last 4 games with great usage off the bench lately. He’s a pretty streaky DFS play, but the value is still there at $6,600.
