1.) Michael Carter-Williams, PG, Orlando Magic
Yahoo: $14; DrafftKings: $5,500; FanDuel: $4,500
MCW has not only cracked the rotation but is the primary PG option for a decimated Magic team. He has not always been a good shooter and sometimes his shot selection is suspect, but he fills up the stat sheet every now and then. Case on point: Even with an atrocious 2-for-13 shooting vs the Warriors, he contributed four rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two blocks.
2.) Cam Reddish, SG/SF, Atlanta Hawks
Yahoo: $12; DrafftKings: $4,500; FanDuel: $4,900
Cam’s string of solid fantasy outings continued and even though he did not crack double-digits, he swiped a career-high 5 steals. He is averaging 14 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 dimes, and 2 steals over the past four games. What’s more important he has played at least 28 minutes in each of those. The opportunity is there so it’s good to see Cam grab it by the horns.
3.) JaVale McGee, C, Brooklyn Nets
Yahoo: $10; DraftKings: $3,800; FanDuel: $3,600
Andre Drummond is going to be held out Sunday night, which could pave the way for more opportunities for the three-time NBA champion. McGee has already proved time and again that he could produce in limited minutes, so if his playing time hovers in the 18-20 minute range, he could probably come up with a gem of a DFS statline.
4.) Nerlens Noel, C, New York Knicks
Yahoo: $14; DraftKings: $4,900; FanDuel: $5,300
If you want a big man that will surely play minutes in the high 20s, then Noel is your guy. He will cost a bit more than McGee and offers the same upside. He is averaging 7.3 points, 6.3 boards, an assist, and a total of 9 “steals + blocks” over the past three games.
5.) Patrick Beverley, PG, Los Angeles Clippers
Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $4,400; FanDuel: $4,500
I like the chances of PatBev having a good game against Brooklyn. He did put up 17 markers against the Jazz and he probably will bring his A-game in a marquee matchup against Kyrie Irving and James Harden. On the other end of the spectrum, he could be in foul trouble all night trying to contain one of the world’s best offensive forces.
