Point Guards

Tre Jones

  • DraftKings: $6,000
  • FanDuel: $6,000

Jones has been lighting up the box score recently. He's had at least 27.9 FanDuel fantasy points in every game but one throughout the year.

Jones has also taken at least ten shots in his last four games and has two straight games with seven rebounds. Jones can also earn a high rate of assists and can easily add a steal or two per game.

His floor is always pretty high. Even on a bad shooting night, he'll do all the other things to help earn fantasy points.

Dennis Smith

  • DraftKings: $6,300
  • FanDuel: $6,800

Dennis Smith scored at least 25 fantasy points in his last four games with the Hornets. He's earned at least 10 points in every game since starting for Charlotte and is coming off a game against the Knicks where he tallied 11 assists. He's starting to get more comfortable with the Hornets and their offense.

Take a shot at Smith with the cheap price tag.

Shooting Guards

Kevon Harris

  • DraftKings: $3,000
  • FanDuel: $3,500

The Magic are running out of options at guard.

Cole Anthony, Markelle Fultz, Gary Harris, and Jalen Suggs could all be out of tonight's lineup. Therefore, the Magic have just Terrence Ross, RJ Hampton, and Kevon Harris available.

Harris played 22 minutes against Cleveland on Wednesday, and if he earns 22 minutes again, at his price tag, he's someone you should consider plugging into your lineup.

Small Forwards

Justise Winslow

  • DraftKings: $3,900
  • FanDuel: $5,000

Winslow has consistently been putting up solid fantasy numbers when his name is called. He doesn't have a high usage but has earned at least 20 fantasy points in three of four games he's played this season.

Winslow has added three assists in his last two games and is always good for a steal and block per game.

Nassir Little

  • DraftKings: $3,200
  • FanDuel: $3,900

Little isn't getting an insane amount of playing time. But the Blazers signed Little to an extension, thinking he'd continue to develop and earn minutes.

He's earned at least 12.1 fantasy points in three of five games, although his last one against Miami wasn't too impressive, with just 5.2 fantasy points.

His usage dropped tremendously, and he only scored two points. Look for him to bounce back and put together a much better performance against the Rockets tonight. He might even get extra minutes due to garbage time.

Power Forwards

Kelly Oubre

  • DraftKings: $6,200
  • FanDuel: $6,200

Oubre is dominating right now. He's getting at least 30 minutes a night over the last three games and has scored at least 15 points in each of those three games.

Against Atlanta, Oubre brought down ten rebounds to go along with 24 points. Against the Knicks on Wednesday, Oubre scored 17 and hauled in five rebounds with two steals and a block.

Oubre still isn't priced correctly heading into tonight's game against the Magic.


Jusuf Nurkic

  • DraftKings: $7,200
  • FanDuel: $6,800

Nurkic has been a bit inconsistent. There are games where he's scored 19.9 fantasy points and others where he's scored 39 or more.

Against the Rockets, Nurkic has an excellent matchup. His ceiling is much higher in this one. He can earn at least 15 rebounds at times and already has three games with at least 12 rebounds.

Nurkic hasn't been scoring as much as Portland would like. He's only had double-digits in three games this season. But against the Rockets, again, he's got a strong probability of earning a double-double.
