Blake Griffin (7400 DK, 7400 FD) – Two factors contribute to Blake’s appeal in this spot. First and foremost, he’s way too cheap. The 7400 price tag is the lowest it’s been all year on FD and since December on DK. On top of that, Detroit’s implied point total is up to 109 which is significantly higher that their average of about 103 per game. Griffin, the Piston’s number one offensive option, stands to benefit the most from the soft match up. People may be turned away by DvP statistics but I’m not particularly concerned. Probability of top-3 positional value: 20.6% DK; 25.9% FD.
Dwight Howard (7500 DK, 7700 FD) – Howard’s situation closely resembles Griffin’s. His 7500 salary on FD is the lowest it’s been in two months and has dropped 1500 within the last week. Similarly on DK , Howard’s price has dropped 3400 in a matter of days and is at its lowest point in a month. As long as he stays out of foul trouble versus Embiid, the match up isn’t bad either with an implied total of 105. Probability of top-3 positional value: 16.9% DK; 29.2% FD.
