Everything is new and optimistic on Opening Day, and that means there is a lot to be both optimistic and excited about playing both some prime and value picks among the host of FantasyDraft...
Category: Today’s Plays
John Wall’s price tag is unreasonably cheap for a matchup against a poor transition defense so go ahead and lock him in tonight.
Clint Capela will face an undersized Mavericks frontcourt on Wednesday evening and he is about $1,000 underpriced. Consequently, he is one of the easiest plays of the entire slate.
Dejounte Murray is averaging 1.14 fantasy points per minute without Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol, Rudy Gay and Manu Ginobili (all ruled out) on the floor and he is facing one of the league’s worst defenses. Do not miss out on Murray night.
Malcolm Brogdon is crazy cheap and yet the team is missing Giannis Antetokounmpo and the matchup is elite. Roll with Brogdon in both cash games and tournaments.
With Jamal Murray out yet again, Will Barton should prove to be fantasy gold tonight against a team that has allowed the second most fantasy points this season to opposing guards.
Facing a defense that struggles against ball-handlers in the pick-and-roll, Jrue Holiday is an elite per-dollar investment on Wednesday’s slate.
J.J. Barea is out tonight, and Yogi Ferrell has topped 30 fantasy points in each of his last three games, so make sure to lock him in on FantasyDraft tonight.
Athletic centers have been dominating the Wizards lately so fantasy owners would be crazy to not fire up John Henson on the early slate today.
Marquese Chriss has already been ruled out for tonight, and Josh Jackson is doubtful, so plenty of minutes should be available for Dragan Bender once again. Fade him at your own risk.
