Mastersball is excited to now be supporting NBA DFS, where you can indeed play against me at FantasyScore.
Alright folks, one day until you loosen your belts and tuck into some turkey. Before you sink into a food coma and spend all day watching the NFL, let's take a moment to look at tonight's very full slate of NBA games.
Russell Westbrook ($9900): This is one of the more obvious picks of all time. My only worry is that Russ won't have enough time to really pour on the points in what promises to be an easy matchup against the Nets.
Kawhi Leonard ($8000): Leonard has truly turned into a superstar this season, and in this all-Texas showdown, I expect all of that to show. Dallas is on the tail end of a back-to-back and Leonard has scored more than 20 points in seven out of his last ten games.
Kevin Love ($7900): I am loving the production and focus on Love so far this season. The former Minnesota man has shown why the Cavs were willing to trade so much for him. Against a Raptors team that still hasn't figured out how to consistently defend, Love should have a field day.
Willie Cauley-Stein ($4400): The former Kentucky standout has had an up and down start this season. With a matchup against the struggling Bucks, Cauley-Stein will have plenty of opportunities to showcase his obvious talents. He's one of those players I would only suggest if you are trying to rely heavily on some of the most costly players as I haven't seen enough consistency out of the big man to put him in many of my lineups.
T.J. Warren ($3000): Warren isn't a versatile player that stuffs the stat sheet, but the former NCST man can score. The Suns face off against the Pelicans in a game that promises points, so if you need a cheap option to score some fantasy points, Warren's your guy, with potentially bigger upside with the easy matchup.
There are plenty of role players I like tonight, especially given their FantasyScore salaries, so I will keep their explanations short.
Kristaps Porzingis ($4600): Can you find a better deal for a player averaging 30 fantasy points per game? Porzingis has taken flgiht recently and look for that trend to continue.
Jeff Teague ($6000): Teague has continued his impressive play from last season and continues to lead the Hawks potent attack. A matchup with the Timberwolves, even on the tail end of a back-to-back, is nothing to scoff at.
Evan Fournier ($4900): One of the many underpriced overperformers this season. The Knicks, despite their improvement, aren't a defensive powerhouse, so look for the overperforming to continue.
Marcus Morris ($4800): Somehow $200 less than his twin, Marcus is having a remarkably steady season. I have relied on the regularity of the Detroit forward's production on many occassions and will continue to do so tonight.
