Stephen Curry (FDraft: $18,100 DK: $10,300 FDuel: $10,700): Our first Must-Have of the night is the two-time MVP winner Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at the Oracle tonight with the highest game total of the night, set at 240 points. The Warriors will be shorthanded tonight without the likes of their do-it-all guy, Draymond Green. With Green off the court this season, Curry has a crazy 44.2% usage and is averaging 1.75 Fpts/min in 134 minutes. Since 2017, when Draymond Green is off the court, Steph is averaging 60.3 DK points/ 36 minutes. While Curry’s individual matchup isn’t ideal as he deal with Eric Bledsoe, Durant will have to deal with the long Giannis Antetokounmpo, so we believe Curry is the much better play of the two. Not only does Curry have a safe floor in this game with the high pace and game total, but we believe Curry is in a great spot for a ceiling game. We are locking Stephen Curry into our lineups tonight!
Lou Williams (FDraft: $11,600 DK: $5,900 FDuel $6,200): Our second Must-Have for this short slate tonight is Lou Williams. Lou and the Clippers will be taking on the Blazers in Portland tonight with the second highest game total on the slate at 224 points. Williams has thrived this year when Luc Mbah a Moute and Avery Bradley are out this season gathering a whopping 35.6% usage rate to go with 1.35 fantasy points per minute. The Clippers may also be even more shorthanded with Tobias Harris being questionable due to the news of an illness that just came out. He missed shoot-around this morning and if he misses the game Lou Williams becomes an even stronger play with his usage rate spiking up to nearly 40%! His FPPM also jumps to 1.77 making him an elite play at such a discounted price on a small slate. Lou Williams is also projected to be guarded by Nik Stauskas primarily tonight who is slightly worse than league average as a defender with a defensive rating of 107.28. Lou Williams is primed for a great performance tonight and we want him locked alongside Steph tonight in all of your lineups. Good luck!
