Hassan Whiteside (7200 DK, 7400 FD) – From my analysis, the center position is a difficult one to find value at tonight, so this pick is as much about positional factors as it is someone who is likely to greatly exceed his season averages. This is mainly a price play; Whiteside has averaged 35.2 DK and 35.3 FD points this season. With his team total slightly higher than average, I expect him to slightly exceed those numbers. Based on pricing, he is a much stronger play on FD than DK tonight. Probability of top 3 positional value: 18% DK, 35.65% FD.

Tyrone Wallace (4000 DK, 4500 FD) – With Gallinari and Bradley ruled out the other night, Ty Wallace played 36 minutes and collected 32.6 Fpts. Since both are out tonight, I expect him to continue to get a great amount of run, but I am not projecting a repeat performance to be very likely. That’s ok given his cheap price and the lack of value options on the board. Probability of top 3 positional value: 17.4% DK, 26.65% FD.

Lou Williams (7200 DK, 7300 FD) – On the season, Williams has averaged 37.2 DKFP over 32.3 MPG. The return of Austin Rivers to the lineup has hurt his fantasy production a bit, but I expect the high total of the Clippers tonight will even that out. Since Gallinari and Bradley are out, it’s very possible Williams could get a bit more run than he has been seeing for the past couple of weeks. Probability of top 3 positional value: 20.6% DK, 20.75% FD.

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing support@awesemo.com.
