It’s Halloween & it’s Friday! Got a nice lineup of daily fantasy basketball games to pick through tonight. Below are my sleeper picks for the night. Remember, no need to stack your lineups with these guys (you will lose your money) – just use one or two when you fill your lineups up with studs.
G – 76ers – TONY WROTEN
His price has gone up, but still is a good option because the 76ers have nobody – and Wroten is a “me” guy who can fill up the stat sheet.
G – Indiana – DONLAD SLOAN
His price has gone up, but he’s still under avg price. Faces Memphis, which isn’t ideal – but with George Hill and CJ Watson out – the team will rely on him to score.
F – 76ers – HOLLIS THOMPSON
Is near the bottom of the price bucket and should get 30 minuets.
F – Indiana – LUIS SCOLA
Looks like David West is out, which should open the door up for Scola to play a bit more tonight. He’s always ready to roll early in seasons (then wears down) because he plays overseas during the offseasons.
F – Chicago – DOUG McDERMOTT
Got more minuets than Mike Dunleavy and performed well. He’s still around minimum price which makes him an attractive option even if he comes off the bench.
F – Phoenix – MARCUS MORRIS
His brother is more expensive, but comes off the bench and usually plays limited minuets. Marcus fills a need in the Suns linuep and is a solid option.
F – Bulls – TAJ GIBSON
Still under avg price on some sites despite a huge opening night line where he was 10-12. I wouldn’t expect the same scoring, but his rebounds and other stats could tick up a bit.
