The NBA is back after a quick break with a short two-game slate. There isn't much to go around, but there are a number of bargain options to round up your DFS roster.
1.) Justise Winslow, SF, Memphis Grizzlies
Winslow has been up and down since his return but the only constant is his playing time. The former lottery pick has played at least 20 minutes a game with varying results. We hope the break helped him recuperate, but he is an integral part of the Grizzlies rotation. He just needs to give Read More
Justise Winslow, PG, Miami Heat
Winslow has been tearing it up statistically over the past three games, averaging 19 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists over that span. The Heat will be playing a Hawks team in the second night of a back-to-back so this will generally be a favorable matchup for Winslow and the Heat.
The only causes of concern are the return of Dion Waiters and Jimmy Butler but I think JW has proven enough to keep his place as the Heat's starting PG.

Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers ($8,800)
The Houston-OKC tiff is intriguing with a lot of big names but if you want to spread out the wealth with the same ceiling for a huge outing, try Ben Simmons. The Aussie has just torched their would-be opponent Charlotte four days ago with 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and a block. It would be nice to add more scoring and defensive stats but that should still be one heck of a stat line.
Jrue Holiday, SG, New Orleans Pelicans ($8,500)

An NBA rookie's life is difficult but once figured out, it could be a gateway for more opportunities and eventually, success. Aside from Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis who turned out to be formidable sources since Day 1, these 5 sophomores have " FANTASY SUPERSTAR" written all over them. Will they take the next step this season? Only time can tell but we sure hope they do.

Winslow will step into a bigger role in Miami this season with the departure Read More
