Wow! We went heavy on a New York Knicks stack last night and man did it pay off! We won big money!! We have eight games tonight, so let’s get to it!!
Guard: Lonzo Ball, New Orleans Pelicans (DK-$7,300)
Ball is coming off arguably his most efficient game of the season. Putting up 19 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists. Tonight he gets a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The T-Wolves will have trouble guarding the high powered offense of Lonzo and Zion Williamson. I like the ball to go for about 35 fantasy points tonight which is slightly above his average of 33.8 points per game. He could easily crack a triple-double tonight.
Forward: Mikal Bridges, Phoenix Suns (DK-$5,400)
With way too many stars at the forward position, I am going to go deep sleeper here and draft Bridges. He has quietly put up over 28 fantasy points in three consecutive games while averaging 38 minutes a game. The numbers don’t look great on paper, but he’s been on a nice hot streak. The Suns get a tough matchup against the Toronto Raptors tonight. However, given the hot streak Bridges is on, I like him to go for 30 fantasy points tonight. The minutes are there and the production will keep coming.
Power Forward: Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors (DK-$8,700)
Here we are going to spend big on some star power. Siakam is a monster and averaging crazy stats this year. He is averaging a whopping 42.8 fantasy points per game. I don’t think anyone on the Suns will be capable of slowing down the Raptors star. He is a threat at a double-double on any given night. Tonight is one of those nights. Averaging 23.5 points, and 7.5 rebounds a game, he’s going for a double-double tonight. Lock him in your lineup and enjoy.
Center: Harry Giles III, Sacramento Kings (DK-$5,600)
Giles has been a monster in his last five games. During that span, he’s been averaging over 30 fantasy points per game. Looks like the Kings took off the training wheels on Giles and are letting him get all the minutes he can handle. During this five-game stretch, he’s been averaging 12 points and six rebounds. The matchup against the Washington Wizards tonight is a great opportunity for Giles to showcase his full arsenal. Look for him to go for another double-double.
Util: Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans (DK-$7,700)
Here we go. Now you all know why we went so conservative throughout this Fave Five article. We want to spend on arguably the best player in the NBA right now, Zion. It’s scary to realize how he is only getting better as the season progressed. In his last game, Williamson broke Carmelo Anthony‘s record for the longest string of games to score 20+ points by a teenager. Anthony’s record was nine-straight, a number that was toppled by Williamson when he finished with 24 points in a victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Williamson put up 35 points (12-16 FG, 11-13 FT) and seven rebounds in 33 minutes during Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Just get him in your lineup, and win money!
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fave Five! Hope you enjoyed it! Good luck and let’s win some big money together!
