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.
Harris is way too cheap tonight for the way he has been playing. Harris finally looks healthy after being beaten up most of the season and in his past five games is averaging 14 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 2.8 steals+blocks. Harris has at least 24 fantasy points in each of those five games and is averaging 28 fantasy points during this stretch.
Kristaps Porzingis has not played a back-to-back in almost two months for the Mavs so I am going to assume he is out tonight though we have no official word. If Porzingis is out I really like Kleber at his salary. This season in the 15 games that Kleber has played that Porzingis has missed, Kleber is averaging 12.1 points, six rebounds, 1.1 assists, 2.4 blocks+steals, and 27.13 fantasy points.
Rostering Maker tonight is a risky play but with him being the site minimum salary he is a risk I am willing to take. The reason why I am willing to take the risk with Maker is the fact that John Henson is out. With Henson out, Maker should start and Maker has solid numbers as a starter this year. In his 13 starts, Maker is averaging 8.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.9 steals+blocks. In his six starts since the trade of Andre Drummond, Maker’s numbers have been even better as he is averaging 25.4 fantasy points in those games.
