With Golden State short four stars, Patrick McCaw should see a huge increase in minutes. Couple that with an increased usage rate compared to his normal output and a minimum salary on both sites, and you’ll have the building blocks to a successful punt play.
FD: $8400 | Fpts: A | Value: A
DK: $8100 | Fpts: A | Value: A
Quite possible the best overall play on the board, Chris Paul gets the opportunity to fly the plane without his normal co-pilot. Paul will be able to dictate the entire offense for the Rockets, which means increased usage to cover for Harden, along with increased opportunities for assists. And for the icing on the cake, he has one of the best match-ups of the night.
FD: $3700 | Fpts: C | Value: A
DK: $4700 | Fpts: C | Value: B
Note the prices and value ratings above. Since the Rockets are shorthanded tonight, and Mike D’Antoni is famous for short rotations, Gerald Green will be looking at minutes similar to his last two games. Those elevated minutes create a huge amount of value, specifically at FanDuel, where he is priced $200 above the minimum.
FD: $4000 | Fpts: D | Value: A
DK: $3800 | Fpts: C | Value: A
Meet Opposite Gerald Green. With Clint Capela out, Anderson will have the opportunity to capitalize on the minutes that are up for grabs in the Rockets frontcourt. Price is key, with Anderson being the slightly better play on DraftKings, as opposed to FanDuel.
