Eight games is more than enough to fill your hearts with love and the chance to make money tonight:
Hornets at Magic, 7:00 PM (Eastern)
Charlotte has three players averaging over 33 Fantasy points per game over the past ten, with surprising Marvin Williams ($12,700) leading the way at 36.4. Kemba Walker ($14,700) has 34.2 while Nicolas Batum ($13,000) is putting up 33. Nikola Vucevic ($14,600) has had a stellar Fantasy season, but played sparingly in his two games against the Hornets this season, playing just 24.5 minutes in a pair of blowouts. Elfrid Payton ($13,800) is a reasonable play, averaging 41.5 FP in his last ten.
Pacers at Celtics, 7:30 PM
Paul George is in the midst of a month that has seen him average 25.7 points. 7.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists and while he struggled from the field in his previous meeting against Boston, George ($15,200) still put up 19 points, eight boards, five assists and two steals. He’s a strong play tonight. Jeff Teague ($12,300) comes off a 21-5-5 effort on Monday and will counter a healthy Isaiah Thomas ($15,000), who has averaged 27.3 points per game in 13 outings against Indiana. Al Horford ($12,300) has been torrid from the field in his last five, shooting 60 percent overall and 57 percent from beyond the arc.
76ers at Thunder, 8:00 PM
Might want to send some thoughts and prayers to the Sixers, who’ll face a Russell Westbrook coming off a season-low 15 points in Monday’s loss to the Warriors. Even at the steep price of $23,400, Westbrook is a must-play. Don’t be shocked if he adds his 35th triple-double of the season. Victor Oladipo ($12,700) has averaged 18.4 points per game over the last five for OKC. While Dario Saric ($14,000) and Robert Covington ($13,700) have been consistent producers the last two weeks, you might want to consider Richaun Holmes at $12,300. Holmes had a career-high 14 boards on Tuesday and added 24 points. He’s putting 14.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in his last five.
Hawks at Wizards, 8:00 PM
Losers of seven of their last ten, the Hawks won’t have Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee), so expect Dennis Schroder ($13,400) and Tim Hardaway, Jr. ($11,600) to continue with high usage rates while Ersan Ilyasova ($10,900) will get the start for Millsap. Washington has struggled on the glass of late, which makes Dwight Howard a nice play at $13,200. John Wall ($17,200) and Bradley Beal ($13,600) are carrying pretty high URs, but Wall has struggled this season against the Hawks, shooting 35 percent from the field despite averaging eight assists in the three previous meetings.
Pistons at Bulls, 8:00 PM
Both teams come off losses on Tuesday and are desperate for a win to boost their playoff hopes. Tobias Harris ($11,900) had 24 points and five boards against the Nets and has averaged nearly 31 FP per game in his last ten. You know Andre Drummond‘s going to give you rebounds. He pulled down 17 on Tuesday and has averaged 19 boards in his last three. Pay the $14,600 for Drummond and let him do thing on the glass. Reggie Jackson‘s increased usage rate certainly hasn’t translated into production for the Pistons. Rajon Rondo ($11,200) looked like vintage R-Double, scoring 24 points and adding eight assists in the loss to the Raptors. Considering he’s averaged 34 FP in his last five, he’s worth the risk.
Cavaliers at Nuggets, 9:00 PM
LeBron James treated the Nuggets in their previous meeting as if they were LaVar Ball, putting up 27 points, five rebounds and 12 assists in a 125-109 win on February 12. All hail the King at $19,900. Kyrie Irving ($16,000) is scoring at will, shooting 52 percent from the field and 46 percent from long range in his last ten. Denver will be without Danilo Gallinari (knee), but are still Fantasy rich with Nikola Jokic ($17,900) leading the way. Will Barton ($13,800), Gary Harris ($12,600) and Mason Plumlee ($12,300) are each averaging over 30 FP a night in their last five.
Bucks at Kings, 9:30 PM
Neither team has been Fantasy friendly of late, including Giannis Antetokounmpo ($16,900), who’s fallen to just 35.5 FP in the last five games, nearly 13 points off his season average. Khris Middleton scored 26 in Tuesday’s win at the Trail Blazers and appears close to breaking out. He’s a reasonable option at $12,300. The pickings are awful thin in Sacramento, but thrill seekers might want to look at rookie Skal Labissiere, who has averaged 17.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in his last four. He’s flying under the radar at $9,800.
Knicks at Jazz, 10:30 PM
Kristaps Porzingis returned to the lineup with a 39.3 FP night at the Clippers on Monday and should be a safe option at $12,200. With the team reducing Carmelo Anthony‘s usage the remainder of the season, one should be cautious with investing $12,700 on him. Melo has struggled the last two games, averaging just 14.5 points. Willy Hernangomez is also mired in a funk, one that will continue dealing with Rudy Gobert, who’s averaging 44 FP per in his past five. Gobert ($14,300) is shooting nearly 67 percent from the field while also averaging four blocks per game in the same span. Gordon Hayward shook off a mini-skid and put up a career-high 38 at the Pacers on Monday. Now back home, Hayward is a good play at $14,000.
