Today’s slate revolves around what the Atlanta Hawks are doing. Here is the Hawks injury report that they released yesterday.
Dewayne Dedmon: OUT
Miles Plumlee: OUT
Omari Spellman: OUT
Alex Poythress: OUT
John Collins: DOUBTFUL
Taurean Prince: DOUBTFUL
This means that big minutes will come somewhere off their bench. Bazemore and Len are my favorites.
PG: Russell Westbrook – My gut tells me today is his day. In the past 4 hes been right at 1.37fppm with around 36mpg. Today he see’s a Lakers team that has trouble on D. Their is a blowout potential so dont make him your only PG tonight.
SG: Kent Bazemore (Dk only) – For some reason unbeknownst to me, Bazemore hasn’t been getting a lot of nods from his coach lately. 17.75mpg & 17fppg in his last 4. This will turn around and that means 30+ potential.
SF: Vince Carter (FD Only) – It makes me sad to think one of my childhood stars is in his last season, and hats off to the Hawks orginization for letting the man see some extended minutes this year. On the season Vinsanity has seen right under 20 in both mpg & ppg. With most of the roster out his bump should send him over 20 in both categories. Great value.
SF: DeAndre’ Bembry – Bembry has increased production without getting a minutes boost (1.44fppm) at right around 18mpg. That should increase tonight and he is a cheap option to give you room for PG or Harden.
PF: Kyle Kuzma – The Thunder have trouble with bigs. Therefore i am targeting two big guys who will be relied on to spark the offense. His production has been a little below his season average in his last 5(-1.4fppg) but in DFS we must have a short memory. His ceiling and price match his opponent so i will have plenty of Kuzma
C: JaValle McGee – I like his matchup vs Adams and the Thunder. McGee has been on a tear in the month of March averaging. 30.3mpg and a massive 49.3fppg in his last 6. He’s on a groove and having fun out there.
