Cash Plays

On FanDuel, after starting the season at $6600, Dwight Howard has finally cracked the $8000 mark.  It’s been a steady climb in price because Howard has exceeded projections in every game.  Considering he’s averaging 14.5 points, 17 rebounds, and 2 blocks, it isn’t a surprise that he’s had double-doubles in 4 of 5 games.  The bonus on DraftKings definitely makes him a viable cash play at $7700 there as well.  He gets a plus matchup at home against the Magic, who give up +3.33 to Centers.

The Pistons will be well rested when they face Golden State tonight.  They haven’t played since Wednesday.  You get a good discount on Reggie Jackson at DraftKings, priced at $5700.  He had an off game against Minnesota, but that has been his only dud this season.  He’s averaging 15 points, 4 boards, and 6 assists per game.  The Warriors’ quick pace should get Jackson and Detroit a few more possessions than their season average, so it will only take a solid game to hit value in our cash lineup.

GPP Plays

The Nets have had an exploitable front court defense for years now.  If I’m looking for maximum upside in my GPPs, I’ll take a look at Wilson Chandler.  He’s a better value on FanDuel at $4700, but even $4800 on DraftKings is decent value for starter minutes in a good matchup.  The early Vegas total has this game at 221 points.  Chandler is averaging .91 fantasy points per minute.  That number should get a boost playing Brooklyn, so if he gets better than 30 minutes of playing time, we’re looking at 6x value or better.
