NBA | Must-Haves | 1/18/17

Marcus Morris (DK $5,500 FD $4,900): In the absence of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope this year, Marcus Morris has been a huge beneficiary. Morris is averaging 5 more minutes per game, 7.5 more Fpts per game, and an insane usage increase of +5.4%, bumping his usage up to 27.2%, good for second highest on the team, behind Reggie Jackson. At his average of 37 minutes per game and .78 Fpts/min without Pope,…

NHL | Must-Haves | 1/18/17

Blake Wheeler (DK: $6,200 FD: $7,100): The Jets have struggled lately, having lost four in a row, but a home game against the Arizona Coyotes should be just what the doctor ordered. Arizona is the worst team in the NHL in a variety of metrics. At 5v5, they rank last in shots against/60 minutes, expected goals against/60 and scoring chances against/60. On the penalty kill, they’re marginally better, but still…

NBA | Must-Haves | 1/17/17

Will Barton (DK $5,600 FD $4,800): The first must have tonight is the Denver Nuggets’ guard Will “The Thrill” Barton. Before diving into his matchup, we believe we must address the Vegas lines for Denver’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Although the line opened at 227, it is now sitting at a massive 230, with Denver sitting as just a 1 point favorite. The highest over/under and tightest…

NHL | Must-Haves | 1/17/17

Tyler Bozak (DK: $4,800 FD: $5,500): Tonight, the Maple Leafs welcome the Buffalo Sabres into Toronto, in what should be a high scoring affair. As of the now, Vegas currently list the Maple Leafs as massive favorites; with an over/under of 5.5, we should see plenty of pucks finding the back of the net. Bozak will be centering the team’s top line alongside linemates James Van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner,…
