Marcus Smart (4800 DK, 4800 FD) and Terry Rozier (4900 DK, 4500 FD) –  Kyrie Irving’s absence opens up a lot of opportunity for the other Celtics, particularly in the backcourt.   The Celtics haven’t announced who Irving’s replacement in the starting lineup is, so check for updates as we approach lock.  Rozier has been very effective when replacing Irving, notching a triple-double in his first start earlier this year.  But Smart has started at PG the three times this season when Irving was out and he was available (he was out for Rozier’s starts).   Whoever starts will be a great play, but I’d also recommend some exposure to the other who good easily garner more minutes based on performance and will see lower ownership.  Probability of top-3 positional value (assuming Smart starts): Smart 47.4% FD, 30.1% DK; Rozier 38.05%, 25.2% DK.

Larry Nance Jr.  (5300 DK, 5800 FD)-   The Cavaliers will be extremely thin in the front court tonight with Tristan Thompson, Jeff Green and Kevin Love all remaining out.  Nance, as the only big man left standing other than Ante Zizic (and LeBron who could be the league’s best PF if he played there), is going to log very heavy minutes as the Cavs will need to contend with the size of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond all night long.  The nearly 113 implied point total makes this a matchup too good to pass up, especially at  Nance’s price tag.  Probability of top-3 positional value: 31.0% DK, 30.2% FD.

A self-proclaimed U.S. history buff, stats enthusiast, and rabid fan of anything Detroit (yes, even the Lions), Alex started playing daily fantasy sports in 2013 and never looked back. After graduating with a degree in mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008, he began developing advanced statistical models and applied his unique skill-set first to poker, then as a full-time DFS player. He has since dominated DFS, becoming a fixture on leaderboards and cementing his position as the top-ranked overall player according to RotoGrinders. Competing in most guaranteed prize pool tournaments, he has ranked in the top 3 across major sports, including NBA, NFL, NHL, PGA, and MLB. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of fantasy sports with new and experienced players alike. Career Highlights: No. 1 Overall Ranking; 14x FanDuel $100k winner, 11x DraftKings Hundred-Thousandaire; 20x Live Final qualifier.
