GUARDS

Rajon Rondo (at MIL, DK - $9,300, FD - $8,400) – Rondo has been playing entirely too well to ignore right now. His price on FanDuel is ridiculously low, while his price DraftKings is just a bit under where it should be. Over the last 10 days, Rondo is averaging 13.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 14.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in 41.1 minutes per game. He’s playing minutes in the low-40s each game, and he’s nearly a lock for a double double and a threat to triple double every time he steps on the court. The matchup against the Bucks isn’t ideal, but Rondo has been playing absurdly well recently, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.
 
Avery Bradley (vs PHI, DK - $5,900, FD - $6,000) – Bradley is another player who is too cheap on each site. He has been a pure scorer since returning from injury, and he’s going to be playing big minutes with Marcus Smart out. Over the last 10 days, Bradley is averaging well over 1 fantasy point per minute, and he could see upwards of 40 minutes tonight. He’s also taking a ridiculous amount of three-point shots, and the Sixers have had a terrible perimeter defense this season. Bradley is one of the hottest shooters in the NBA right now, and he can be used in all leagues for his price tag.
 
Tony Parker (vs DAL, DK - $5,100, FD - $5,500) – Parker got off to an extremely slow start, but he has been playing much better recently. Over the last 10 days, Parker is averaging 16.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game. He has been scoring much more efficiently recently, and he gets a fairly good matchup tonight. Parker has had a few dominant games recently, but he’s most likely going to hit right around value tonight. He’s a guy that will allow you to get a few top players in your lineup. He also has the opportunity exceed value as a cheap play.
 

FORWARD

Anthony Davis (at PHO, DK - $10,800, FD - $11,100) – The Brow’s price is ridiculous, but so is his potential. In his last three full games, he’s averaging 29.3 points, 16.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 3.3 blocks, and 1.0 steal per game. He gets a great matchup against the Suns, who are one of the fastest paced teams in the NBA. The Pelicans also love to run, and there should be plenty of opportunities for Davis to score fantasy points tonight. Davis’s price tag is tough to swallow, but he has 60+ fantasy point upside, and he also has a fairly high floor, as long as he doesn’t get injured.
 
Kristaps Porzingis (at ORL, DK - $7,000, FD - $6,700) – Porzingis had loads of potential when he was drafted, and it looks like he’s finally putting it all together. He has huge double doubles (24.3 points and 13.0 rebounds per game) in three of his last four games. He gets a great matchup against a weak Orlando frontcourt, and the games tend to get out of control quick when the Magic play. Porzingis is an extremely high upside guy, and his price does not quite represent that. Still, I’ll be using him more in tournaments than cash games because he also has the ability to flop or get in foul troubles.
 
Robert Covington (at BOS, DK - $4,800, FD - $5,700) – Covington’s minutes restriction was removed, and he has quickly become a great fantasy option. He has scored at least 18 points with 6 rebounds in each of his last two games. He has been playing heavy minutes while the Sixers to try figure out who can play with who in their rotation, and Covington’s versatility helps him play with anyone. He gets a good matchup against the Celtics, who have struggled on defense at times this season. Covington is price extremely low for how well he has been playing, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.
 

CENTERS

Marc Gasol (at HOU, DK - $7,300, FD - $7,800) – Gasol has been playing extremely well, as he has been contributing at a high level in points, rebounds, and assists, while adding a few blocks and steals per game. He gets a good matchup against the Rockets, who haven’t covered the center well this season. They also play at a fast pace, which means Gasol will have extra opportunities to score fantasy points tonight. He triple doubled a few games ago, and he has come somewhat close to a triple double a couple times. He can be used in all leagues for his price.
 
Jahlil Okafor (at BOS, DK - $6,900, FD - $6,600) – Okafor has been as advertised this season, as he has flashed some great post moves this season, but has struggled defensively at times. Recently, he has been rebounding and blocking the ball well, which gives him great upside with his scoring abilities. Earlier this season, he popped off for 26 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 blocks, and 1 steal against the Celtics, and Okafor makes a great tournament option tonight.
