DFS contests tonight will be won and lost based on which studs we choose to put in our lineups. With 11 games on the slate, there are plenty of value plays that will allow us to stuff at least two studs into our lineups. With James Harden on the road against San Antonio, I won’t have much exposure because I hate the matchup. We’ve got Russell Westbrook at home against Toronto (slow paced team). With Kyle Lowry being a top 5 defender in the league, I’m having trouble spending almost $12,000 for Westbrook. So, which studs are we putting in our lineups?
PG: Chris Paul – love the matchup with Damian Lillard
SG: None – not paying up for Harden or DeRozan
SF: Kawhi Leonard – fantastic matchup at home against a high paced team
PF: Blake Griffin – with Al Farouq Aminu out, Blake should be guarded by Moe Harkless/Noah Vonleh
C: Karl Anthony Towns – Vucevic is arguably the worst defensive Center in the league
PG: JJ Barea and Shelvin Mack (if George Hill is out)
SG: Sean Kilpatrick – has been running point guard with Jeremy Lin out
SF: CJ Miles and Tomas Satoransky (if John Wall is suspended)
PF: Ersan Ilyasova, Domantas Sabonis, and Moe Harkless
C: Marcin Gortat
