WALKER- 29.6 (4.4 X VALUE)
MITCHELL- 34.3 (5.5 X VALUE)
BARTON- 27.6 (4.4 X VALUE
AYTON- 24.6 (3 X VALUE)
Today we have a small three game slate that should see enough action to equal six. Im leaning towards the stars and scrubs approach because of the defensive matchups being so lopsided.
Doncic is a force to be rekoned with on a normal day and even more so when facing the 29th ranked defense against the PG position. Over his last 5? Luka has seen 51 FPPG while clocking in at 32+ MPG. Woth hos 38.5% Usage- Rate and 1.57 FPPM, Doncic is a solid play tonight.
Beal i11s still an Elite player even though he has only averaged 27 minutes in his past 5 outings. Over that same span he has put up 32.2 FPPG and has a usage rate of 33.6% at 1.19 FPPM.
Lebron and the Los Angeles Lakers travel to Brooklyn for a matchup vs the 22nd ranked defense against the Small Forward Position. Lebron has seen a steady 33.7% usage rate while maintaining numbers of 46 FPPG, 33.6 MPG , and a 1.36 FPPM.
Love gets Home Court Advantage vs the 17th ranked Washington Wizards and should be esrablished in the paint against an inexperienced Washington backcourt who has given up 41.4 FPPG to opposing centers this season.
I will start by saying that Dwight Howard is probably getting most of the ownership but I am opting to go with McGee who in his pasy 5 games has averaged 26.7 FPPG in 19.4 Min at a 1.37 FPPM clip. He gets the 27th ranked D vs centers and should have no problem hitting value.
