NBA | Must-Have | 5/20/18

Chris Paul (DK $12,000 FD $14,500)After a few days off, the Warriors and Rockets travel back to the Bay Area for Game 3 in a tied series. Over the first five games of both conference finals series, we’ve had five games that have been decided by more than ten points. The Rockets played very poorly in Game 1 and the Warriors did the same for Game 2, evening out the series at one game a piece. Though we think the Warriors win this game, they are all priced more correctly than this Rockets player. Chris Paul has been playing very well over the past four games and is seeing 37 minutes per game over that stretch. He is averaging over 30 points, about 10 rebounds, and 6 assists per game and has been a pivotal piece to the Rockets success during the playoffs. His price is very advantageous at just $12,000 on DK and $14,500 on FDuel. We can see that Paul virtually has a 35 fantasy point floor with a 75 point ceiling which he flashed in Game 5 of the series vs the Jazz. Also, Paul has recorded a double-double in three of the last four games. Shooting the ball 20 times a game while chucking eight three pointers on average, the usage, shot attempts, and fantasy production is all there with the all-star point guard. His price is too low for this matchup and game flow, and we will be locking in Paul across all formats tonight.
