In his previous six meetings agaisnt the Rockets, Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 31.0 points per game, 17.5 rebounds per game and 64.0 fantasy points per game, so do not even dream of fading him tonight.
Only the Timberwolves have yielded more offensive rebounds per game to opposing centers this season than the Magic and Enes Kanter has been rolling since the injury to Kristaps Porzingis. Despite the rising price point, he is a player to build around on FantasyDraft tonight.
With only two games on the slate, fire up Julius Randle against a team he has averaged at least 1.1 fantasy points per minute against in five consecutive meetings.
Damian Lillard is going to have the carry the offensive load against the Warriors at home tonight and the pace of the game should be elite. Look for a monster game from the Trail Blazers point guard to close out the first half.
Over the course of the last two seasons, Karl-Anthony Towns has faced the Rockets on five separate occasions, and he has topped 59 fantasy points all five times. Expect a similar performance from him tonight against a defense that allows a ton of points in the paint.
Since the beginning of January, LaMarcus Aldridge has missed two games, and Pau Gasol has averaged 29.2 minutes per game, 14.5 points per game, 11.0 rebounds per game and 4.5 assists per game in those contests. At just $9,900, Gasol is way too cheap to pass on.
After making multiple trades right before the deadline, the Cavaliers are going to be awfully thin on Friday considering their newly-acquired players will not be active. Expect LeBron James to dominate the usage.
Without both Kristaps Porzingis and Enes Kanter on the court this season, Michael Beasley is averaging a ridiculous 1.25 fantasy points per minute, and he is destined to see over 30 minutes this evening. Play him in all formats.
Andre Drummond has transitioned to life with Blake Griffin incredibly well as he has topped 53 fantasy points in two of his three games alongside his new frontcourt mate. Tonight, he faces a Nets defense that ranks dead last in defensive efficiency over the last 10 games and they have allowed by far the most rebounds to the position during that span.
Over the course of his last two games, Josh Hart has averaged a whopping 37.0 minutes per game and 36.9 fantasy points per game, and now he will face a Suns defense that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency versus opposing backcourts.
