We are back with another edition of Livi Locks. There’s a jam-packed night ahead of us starting at 7 p.m., EST. With eight games being played, there are a lot of players to choose from. Some high-scoring rookies are in play, as well.
Let’s get to it and find those players who will yield a high return.
LaMelo Ball – Charlotte Hornets at Sacramento Kings
LaMelo is playing out of his mind the past three games, putting up over 20 points, and at least four rebounds and four assists in each. Ball has put up over 40 fantasy points in three consecutive contests and gets a matchup against a Kings team that just gave up 140 points to the New York Knicks. On the year, he is averaging 15 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 6.1 assists while adding 1.6 steals per game. That is good for 35.6 fantasy points per game.
Add in the plus matchup, and LaMelo should thrive tonight. Lock him in.
Anthony Edwards – Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns
Edwards is coming off arguably his best game of the year where he put up 45.3 fantasy points and nearly recorded his first career NBA double-double. He had a nice stat line of 21 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and two steals. Edwards gets a nice matchup here against the Suns who give up the 13th-most points to opposing guards, so he should see a nice uptick in production.
Edwards is a sneaky play tonight and the production will surprise a lot of people. Lock him in.
Mason Plumlee – Detroit Pistons vs New York Knicks
Plumlee is coming off a two-game performance where he scored 21 points, adding nine rebounds, seven assists, and four blocks against the New Orleans Pelicans. He followed that explosive performance by putting up a much smaller stat line of six points, nine rebounds, six assists, and one block.
Tonight, he gets the Knicks in what should be a nice matchup against a Mitchell Robinson-less Knicks team. New York has struggled to keep opposing bigs out of the paint and will have their hands full with him.
Plumlee is oozing potential in this matchup and he’s a lock for a double-double. Lock him in.
That does it for this edition. Good luck in all your DFS lineups.
