Stacking the Clippers without Paul George is tempting tonight
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.
