Slate Review

Spoiler alert : We have seen that name before !

Well done Chris1337 , once again ( please leave something for us also next time )

This lineup is a perfect example of how you need to combine , high owned players that are projected to go well , like Porter Jr. , Jokic and Embiid , with smart picks , low owned , like DeRozan , White and of course Grant .

Players to watch

5 games for tonight’s 20K main Slate and here are our suggestions.

Point Guards

In addition, check the NBA Fantasy Strategy Guide if you are new to the game.

Luca Doncic – Mavericks – 17.2m

Luca is 17.2m and if i am not mistaken it’s the highest salary we have seen until now in the bubble but how can i avoid him when he has 64.25 fantasy points in the bubble and just had an 82 points game. It’s a tough game against the Clippers but Luca is match proof.

James Harden – Rockets – 16.5m

Westbrook is questionable for the game , Eric Gordon is out. If Westbrook is out , Harden is a must. The problem is that we will not now before lock , so it is kind of risky choice but , at the end of the day , we are playing Harden , he can explode at any point.

Lou Williams – Clippers – 8.6m

Williams returned in the previous game after the chicken wings incident but looked like he did before the break , scoring 22 points in 21 minutes. I have a feeling that he is gonna start playing more minutes , in order to get back in shape , so i will take a chance on him tonight.

Aaron Holiday – Pacers – 6.7m

If Brogdon gets ruled out , then Holiday will come in play for me. He plays the minutes ( 36 mpg ) and he can produce close to 1 point per minute ( 0.97 for the season ).

Shooting Guards

Devin Booker – Suns – 13.5m

Booker is their go to guy and the Suns are 3-0 in the bubble . His price tag is fair and i think he is the best payup option at SG.

Victor Oladipo – Pacers – 8.1m

If Oladipo plays , i like him a lot at 8.1m. He gets the minutes and i beleive they will get him more minutes going forward and he is a player that can give us 40+ minutes anyday.

Kendrick Nunn – Heat – 6.5m

With Jimmy Butler ruled out and Goran Dragic questionable , all the Heat guards become an excellent value. You can shoose Nunn or you can go to Herro ( 5.7m ) , both of them would get a lot of minuts and have a very good price.

Gary Trent Jr. – Blazers – 5.9m

Blazers are playing very well in the bubble and Trent is a key part of their lineup. Not the best per minute performer ( 0.89 ppm ) but he gets up a lot of shots and can get us to 30+ points.

Small Forwards

Kawhi Leonard – Clippers – 13.3m

I really like him tonight against the Mavericks. His price is fair and the game had the game has an 232.5 o/u in Fanteam Sportsbook , one of the highest tonight. Paul George is in play also , so you can mix and match them in your teams.

TJ Warren – Pacers – 11.5m

How can i avoid a player that has 69 points per game?

Andre Iguodala – Heat – 4.8m

With Butler out and Dragic questionable , Iguodala will need to ge more shots. He already plays 25.5 minutes , so i think he will have 30+ minutes tonight. The good thing with Iguodala is his peripheral stats , so if we add scoring to this , he becomes an excellent choice , especially at this price.

Power Forwards

Kristaps Prozingis – Mavericks – 13.1m

Prozingis has a dream match up against the Clippers and i will target him . The price is fair and i think he can hit value.

Kelly Olynyk – Heat – 6.1m

35.75 points in the bubble and had 41 in the last game. Yes , he is gonna be in my lineups.

Michael Porter Jr. – Nuggets – 5.9m

So according to his points average in the bubble , he should cost 8.7m. That’s all i have to say. Play him.


Nikola Jokic – Nuggets – 13.7m

I like Jokic against the Blazers . I am a little worried because it is the second game of a back to back , so the minutes might get limited but just for the matchup , i like him.

Jusuf Nurkic – Blazers – 12.8m

I cannot ingore Nurkic and i am going to play him as long as he continue to have 50+ points.

Ivica Zubac – Clippers – 6.5m

He has 25 minutes per game and 30 points per game in the last 2. I like him , especially at this price.
