TOP 3 SLEEPERS

Cory Joseph (FanDuel: $4,200)

Toronto Raptors vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Joseph is one of the best backup points in the league and proved that Friday when he replaced Kyle Lowry in the starting line-up scoring 11 points, 6 assists, 3 steals and 26 FD points. If Lowry is unable to play tonight Joseph, then becomes an excellent sleeper.

Alex Abrines (FanDuel: $3,600)

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Abrines is cheap, really cheap. Oladipo is once again under an injury cloud and is a game-time decision. Last game, Abrines posted solid numbers in the absence of Oladipo with 19 points, 5 threes made and 21.4 FD points.

Khris Middleton (FanDuel: $4,600)

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns

Khris Middleton is really starting to find his groove. Middleton is averaging 13.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 22.5 FD in his past three games and this should only improve. Get Middleton in your team before his price surges.

TOP 3 VALUES

T.J Warren (FanDuel: $5,200)

Phoenix Suns vs. Milwaukee Bucks

T.J Warren played a high 38 minutes on Friday against the Bulls. These increased minutes lead to terrific production as Warren scored 17 points, 8 rebounds and 32.6 FD points. With Tucker now gone, Warren is the standout small forward at the Sun’s.

Jusuf Nurkic (FanDuel: $5,500)

RECOMMENDED ARTICLES

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Toronto Raptors

Nurkic has fit right in with his new team the Portland Trail Blazers. His past two games he has been terrific averaging 12.5 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.5 blocks and 34.5 FD points. Nurkic solid production should continue.

Michael Beasley (FanDuel: $5,700)

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns

Beasley’s play has gone to another level since the injury of Jabari Parker and the former #2 pick is showing why he was picked so early. In his past three games, Beasley has averaged 20 points, 4 rebounds and 30 FD points.

TOP 3 STARS

Blake Griffin (FanDuel: $9,500)

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Charlotte Hornets

Griffin is one of the few superstars under $10,000 and is a must have in his game against the Hornets who have been horrid defensively the past thirty days. In his past five games Blake has averaged 21 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds and 43 FD points.

DeMar DeRozan (FanDuel: $8,600)

Toronto Raptors vs. Portland Trail Blazers

When Kyle Lowry isn’t in the line-up, DeMar DeRozan is a must have in ALL FanDuel lineups. DeRozan went off against the Celtics with Lowry out scoring 43 points, 5 rebounds, 5 dimes and 53.5 FD points.

Russell Westbrook (FanDuel: $12,800)

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New Orleans Pelicans

For a bloke that shoot 4 of 18 from the field you would have thought it is near impossible to score 60 plus FD points? You thought wrong. Russ provided 18 rebounds and 17 assists to surge his FD score on Friday to 64. Russell is so versatile that even if he isn’t scoring he is contributing in some way, shape, or form.
