Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?

Notorious: Of any notable player in the slate, Clint Capela has the second best FP/min at 1.38. He is playing at an elite level and has basically improved every part of his game. We should take note that his minutes are trending upward.

STLCardinals84: Spencer Dinwiddie appears to be on track to return tonight, and he should slide right into the starting lineup with D’Angelo Russell sidelined. He has largely been productive this year on a per-minute basis and filled in competently for Russell earlier in the year. Assuming he has no limitations, Dinwiddie is a fine value tonight.

Stevietpfl: Over the last five games, Harrison Barnes is averaging 36 minutes per game. He’s averaging 23.8 actual points in that span, and he’s averaging 16.2 shots per game. He’s gone for at least 40 DK points in four of the last five games, and he’s still only $6,100.

TheSeige: Spencer Dinwiddie, without D’Angelo Russell on the court, has averaged the same number of fantasy points than without him. The big winner? DeMarre Carroll, who sees a 8% usage spike and averages 1.37 DK points per minute when Russell is off the floor

What’s your hot take of the day?

Notorious: Clint Capela scores over 40 fantasy points for the fourth straight game.

STLCardinals84: DeMar DeRozan drops 40 points on the Rockets.

Stevietpfl: Dinwiddie, Carroll, and RGJ all play 32+ minutes tonight

TheSeige: Carroll puts up 36 fantasy points tonight

Who will you be most overweight on compared to the field and why?

Notorious: Spencer Dinwiddie – We are starved for value in this slate, so it makes sense to hit the lock button on the one that we can count on. A matchup against the Celtics isn’t ideal, but Dinwiddie is averaging a fantasy point per minute and he should see close to 30 minutes tonight.

STLCardinals84: Toronto value – With Norman Powell poised to miss tonight’s game, both O.G. Anunoby and C.J. Miles should step into increased roles. Anunoby started the second half in Powell’s absence the other night. Both are basically minimum priced on every site and are a great way to help fit the likes of James Harden into your lineups.

Stevietpfl: Harrison Barnes – I think he’s way underpriced for his current usage and minutes.

TheSeige: DeMarre Carroll – This is one of those classic situations where a guard exits the lineup but the guy who benefits the most is another starter on the same team; I’m going to go overweight here and hope he doesn’t get shut down by elite Celtics wing defense.
