Awesemo's slam dunks will help you start your lineup with a solid core. The slam dunks article is a free feature of Awesemo.com. Slam dunks will be posted by 5 PM ET.

 

Marc Gasol (7200 FD only) –  In an up-pace game against the defensively challenged Suns, Gasol will be leaned on heavily to make up for Tyreke’s absence.  He’s also in line to get few more minutes with backup Deyonta Davis sidelined.  Given his pricing on FanDuel, the situation is way to juicy to pass up.  DraftKings, unfortunately, seems to have accounted for these factors in his salary, so steer clear.  Probability of top-3 positional value: 43.7% FD only.

Clint Capela (6900 DK, 7700 FD) – There’s some risk here.  Capela sat out the last game with an illness, so it’s possible he gets winded early and plays less than expected.  But if he gets his usual complement of minutes, which is what I anticipate, the upside is huge in light of the 117+ implied team total.  Probability of top-3 positional value: 21.6% DK, 24.7% FD.

Draymond Green (7200 DK, 7600 FD) –  The Warriors tie the Rockets for the highest implied team total of the night and there are decent plays across this team, including Steph.  But there’s an easy tiebreaker here for me, since this is what happened the last time these two teams met:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrpZJ8Vr3aA.  Trust me, Draymond will be pumped.  Probability of top-3 positional value: 18.2% DK, 19.15% FD.

A self-proclaimed U.S. history buff, stats enthusiast, and rabid fan of anything Detroit (yes, even the Lions), Awesemo started playing daily fantasy sports in 2013 and never looked back. After graduating with a degree in mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008, he began developing advanced statistical models and applied his unique skill-set first to poker, then as a full-time DFS player. He has since dominated DFS, becoming a fixture on leaderboards and cementing his position as the top-ranked overall player according to RotoGrinders. Competing in most guaranteed prize pool tournaments, he has ranked in the top 3 across major sports, including NBA, NFL, NHL, PGA, and MLB. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of fantasy sports with new and experienced players alike.
