Category: Quick Picks

LeBrontourage

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.

We Beas Who We Beas

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.

Let the Drummond Kick

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.

Don’t Go Breaking My Hart

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.

The Tables Have Turn(er)ed

Myles Turner was rolling prior to his date with Joel Embiid in his last meeting but expect a bounceback in a big way against the Wizards tonight. Here are my picks for Monday, February...

Middleton Class

Malcolm Brogdon is out indefinitely, and both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe are listed as questionable, so Khris Middleton should enjoy an uptick in usage one way or another tonight. At his price, he is worth locking in regardless of who is active.

Buck-le Up

No team has allowed more points in transition this season than the Timberwolves and Giannis Antetokounmpo averages the most points per game in transition of any player in the league. The correlation here is unmistakeable.

Batman and Robin

In three games without Lauri Markkanen this season, Robin Lopez is averaging 25.7 fantasy points per game, and he has topped 29 fantasy points in two of those contests. Facing a Trail Blazers team he has crushed, Lopez should be a lock to reach/exceed value.

No Harden Feelings

The Magic rank dead last in defensive efficiency versus opposing backcourts and Chris Paul may or may not play tonight. Consequently, Harden is worth building around in all formats, and you would have to be crazy to fade him.

No One More Dis-Irving

Both of Kyrie Irving’s backups may be out tonight and the team is matched up against the 26th ranked defense in terms of defensive efficiency versus opposing point guards. Therefore, he is worth playing in all formats on FantasyDraft tonight.
