LeBron James is coming off of his first 40 point game of the season and is a must start despite the fact that he has a tough match up against the Pelicans front court.
Will Barton also has a tough match up going up against Fred Van Vleet and Kyle Lowry but I think the Nuggets are going to play smaller in this matchup and spread the floor so they can create for their guards. Barton should benefit.
I loaded up on the Washington, Golden State match up. I like all of the players I am playing to have big night.
Andrew Wiggins is starting to get his feet under him and despite missing time with injuries and transitioning to the Warriors.
Golden State’s interior defense has been a problem all season long for the Warriors. I am expecting Davis Bertans, Moritz Wagner and Rui Hachimura to have match up advantages and all get to their DFS averages for the season.
Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes are being relied on heavily right now to care the scoring load for the banged up Kings. Expect both to play big minutes and get a lot of scoring opportunities tonight at home against a bad Pistons team.
