TOP 3 SLEEPERS

Cory Joseph (FanDuel: $4,400)

Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks

Until Lowry returns from injury, Joseph will feature regularly in the sleeper column. In his past two starts, Joseph has made the most of his opportunity, Scoring 26.2 and 25.2 FD points.

Nik Stauskas (FanDuel: $4,100)

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Golden State Warriors

For such a cheap price, Stauskas is quietly flying under the radar in FanDuel. Stauskas has scored double-digit FD points eighteen straight times and an average of 22 his past seven. Stauskas is too cheap not to pass up on.

Skal Labissiere (FanDuel: $3,600)

Sacramento Kings vs. Golden State Warriors

Labissiere is quickly showing NBA fan’s why he was a first-round pick. Since Cousins departure, Labissiere is averaging 10 points, 8 rebounds, 1 steal and 23 FD points. His price is set to skyrocket if this production continues so don’t miss out while he is cheap.

TOP 3 VALUES

Seth Curry (FanDuel: $6,000)

Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat

Seth Curry has been the biggest beneficiary since Deron Williams was waived posting impressive numbers. Without Williams, Curry is averaging 22 points, 4 rebounds, 4.5 assists and an astounding 34 FD points.

Jahill Okafor (FanDuel: $5,700)

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Golden State Warriors

With Noel gone and Embiid injured, Okafor stepped up in a big way Saturday having his best game of the season posting 28 points, 10 rebounds and 41.5 FD points. With limited options on the 76ers at the moment, Okafor will continue to have a high usage rate.

Al Horford (FanDuel: $6,100)

Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks

I’m a true believer in when a player versus a former team, they play better than expected. Although Horford has been average so far this season, I expect a statement game tonight against the Hawks.

TOP 3 STARS

Stephen Curry (FanDuel: $9,300)

Golden State Warriors vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Stephen Curry is undervalued at his price tag. The former back-to-back MVP is still having a terrific year and averaging 24.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 42.7 FD points his past ten outings. Looks for Curry to exploit the weak defense of the 76ers and the possibility of no Kevin Durant once again.

Andrew Wiggings (FanDuel: $8,600)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Sacramento Kings

How good has Wiggins been since Zach LaVine’s injury? In the nine games since LaVine went down, Wiggins has been unstoppable, posting ridiculous averages of 30.6 points, 4 rebounds and 42.3 FD points. There is no reason why this shouldn’t continue.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (FanDuel: $10,900)

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The ‘Greek Freak’ has been a monster against the Cav’s this year averaging 29 points, 10 rebounds and 54 FD points in three games. With LeBron questionable due to illness, Antetokounmpo could be set for a massive game.
