Here are my cheaper picks I have on my radar today. Lots of great games, so plenty of stars you should have in your lineup tonight.
PG – Isaiah Thomas vs Brooklyn
The Kings are going to shake up their starting lineup, possibly inserting Thomas, and likely Ben McLemore. Thomas might actually be more effective as a back-up (since he doesn’t have to guard the teams best PG) … but getting into the starting role migth give him upside.
PG/SG – Gary Neal at Orlando
Don’t normally like players on back-to-back games, but Neal is coming back from injury and played well last night (all in the second half). He’s a solid player, who’s cheap on most daily fantasy basketball sites right now. If you want the starter, Nate Wolters is the starter, and usually only a little bit more.
SG/SF – Mike Miller vs Toronto
With Quincy Pondexter out, Miller could see more time. He has upside if he makes some 3’s.
PF/C – Jordan Hill at Denver
Was a beast last night in his first start, and most daily fantasy sites don’t reset their salaries daily, so he still should be at pre-starter pricing. He’s on a back-to-back, but the Lakers were crusing in the 4th and he only played 26 minuets. Provides upside at a value price.
C – Steven Adams vs LAC
This is a stretch, but Kendrick Perkins is out and Nick Collison is just coming back. The Clippers have a solid frontline with both Jordan and Griffin playing well. Adam’s had a solid game a few games ago, but this is a gamble with upside.
