Top Plays

  • LEbron JAmes – This needs no explanation.
  • Kyle Lowry – He’s facing a Hawks team who played last night. Hopefully his flu is gone and he should be able to work Jeff Teague the whole game.
  • Nicholas Batum – Ever since Aldridge has been sidelined, Batum has really upped his game. He now gets a plus matchup against Milwaukee. Just be cautious of the blowout factor.
  • Rudy Gay – This is just a gut pick and I really only like it if Cousins happens to sit again. Rudy Gay, in my opinion, is “due” for a good game.
  • Paul Millsap – He has been on fire lately and might be underowned due to his matchup, but when the Hawks need an offensive surge he is the force behind it.

Mid Tier and Value Plays

  • Spencer Hawes – He has played great lately and now gets a matchup with The Heat. He should be able to score some points and get plenty of rebounds. He’s good mid-tier center play today.
  • Amir Johnson – a PF against the Hawks is always a good play.
  • Draymond Green – His projection is misleading due to Klay Thompson return but both he and Andre Iguodala could make good GPP plays today.
  • Jonas Valanciunas – Just like Amir Johnson, interior players typically have good luck against the Hawks. If youre looking to go cheaper at C than Hawes – Jonas could pay off.

Good Luck, tonight!

    Surprised John Wall comes up so low, was definitely looking at him tonight.

  • liveride

    Aldridge is out so many are jumping on the Dorell Wright VP bandwagon. I like Wall and Isaiah as they can’t stop each other. Lowry and the new Curry usually deliver too.

    Hatchins – He is low because he hasnt been hitting value much as of late and is facing the 4th best PG defense over the last 15 days. I still wouldnt let that shy away from him though because he is still a force. But I like Bradley Beal better tonight.
