Cash Plays

The obvious place to look for cash game value would be the available minutes left from Ariza and Green’s suspensions.  Watch for news leading up to the game, but one assumption would be PJ Tucker gets a big boost in playing time.  Hitting value should be a simple task at $3500 on DraftKings and $3700 on FanDuel.  Fair warning, there seems to be no upside with PJ.  I’m talking none.  He should rebound his way to value and he’ll take a couple of threes.  If there’s any indication that Tarik Black gets a significant boost, you can roster a higher usage rate and save a hundred bucks on each site going that route.

GPP Plays

There’s probably no stronger matchup on the board today than Point Guards against the Magic. Isaiah Thomas saw his minutes climb to 32 last time out. The best part may be that his salary has remained low. He’s $5700 on FanDuel and DraftKings. He flashed over the $6k mark when he returned, but has dipped back down. Thomas hit value against Golden State, scoring 26.25 DK and 25.2 FD points. Orlando ranks 7th in pace of play, just behind the Warriors, so the Cavs will be paced up in a similar situation.
