Kawhi Leonard (DK: $9,000 FD: $9,700): Paul George has already been ruled out for tonight’s game against the Nuggets in Denver. Leonard is elite on about any night, but without George, his usage goes up to nearly 40% with a massive 1.63 fantasy point per minute average. We can also tell you that across more than 10 games without George this season, Leonard has only gone below 48.5 DraftKings points three times, and just last game he scored over 60 fantasy points without George. This game tonight is anticipated to stay very close and higher-scoring since the projected total is over 222 points with a spread of just a point in favor of the Clippers, so we should see Leonard play a plethora of minutes and be leaned on heavily until the end. We will not be fading the safety and hefty upside of Kawhi Leonard across any lineups tonight!

Alec Burks (DK: $5,400 FD: $5,700): Our second Must-Have comes in the form of Alec Burks, who will play a major role on a warriors team that has been a mess all season. With Damion Lee and Ky Bowman both being out of two way days, neither will play this evening. While D’Angelo Russell is back, we expect a minutes cap on him this evening. In one of the highest expected game totals on the slate, Burks will play as many minutes as he can handle, and should provide a much needed source of scoring for the Warriors. In games where Burks sees 30 minutes, he is right at a 1 fantasy point per minute player, and he provides in all categories, as he has had 10 plus real points, five or more assists, and five or more rebounds in three of his last four games. His price tag is very serviceable on this Sunday slate as well, allowing for some very unique builds. Lock in Alec Burks this evening.
