We are back!! After a long week, we finally have basketball tonight!
The All-Star game has come and gone and now it’s time to win some massive money! We got games tonight and there is a lot of money to be made. Here we go, let’s get to it, and good luck!
Guard: Devonte’ Graham, Charlotte Hornets, (DK-$7,500)
Graham gets a nice matchup here tonight. Facing a low Chicago Bulls team that lacks defensive skills, Graham is going to feast. Besides the matchup, Graham has been having a superb season so far. He is averaging 18.1 points per game and 7.8 assists per game, good for 37.4 fantasy points per game. He is my LOCK of the night in what should be a high scoring game. I am expecting Graham to crack 40 fantasy points tonight!
Forward: Caris LeVert, Brooklyn Nets (DK-$6,700)
LeVert gets the start for me tonight, strictly because Kyrie Irving is hurt. Yea, he’s hurt again, the man just can’t stay healthy. LeVert has quietly had a very nice season. Averaging 26.7 fantasy points per game. With Irving out of the picture, LeVert should be in line for a very heavy workload and get as much run as he can handle. Especially in what should be a close matchup against the Philadelphia Sixers, both teams will play their stars early and often. He is my SLEEPER of the night.
Power Forward: Christian Wood, Detroit Pistons (DK-$6,900)
Wood has been a regular on my Fave Five list. He has been an absolute machine ever since Andre Drummond left. This kid can do it all and has gotten better over time. He can shoot the three-ball, drive to the hoop, and most importantly, he can rebound. The matchup against the first play Milwaukee Bucks doesn’t look great, but they are going to need someone big on the court at all times, given the Bucks height. He should get a lot of run. To top that off, he’s averaging 22.3 fantasy points per game. I’m expecting him to crack 25 plus fantasy points tonight.
Center: Jarrett Allen, Brooklyn Nets (DK-$5,100)
Allen is the type of player that plays better against better players. Tonight he gets the All-Star Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers. He is only averaging around 20-25 minutes a game but is stuffing the stat sheet in limited minutes. He is also coming off a massive double-double scoring 10 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Look for him to go for another double-double tonight.
Util: Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies (DK-$7,000)
Ja gets a matchup with the Sacramento Kings. If that doesn’t scream fantasy production, I don’t know what will. I don’t think anyone on the Kings will come close to stopping the rookie phenom. Ja is averaging 17.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game. Good for 34 fantasy points per game. He is going to put up an eye-opening performance tonight. Get him in your lineup and enjoy the ride.
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Fave Five! I hope you guys enjoy it and good luck!!
