Lonzo Ball (DK: $6,900 FD: $6,300): Lonzo Ball has been elite when Jrue Holiday sits, topping 42 fantasy points in four of six games he has sat, and topping 35 in another. He has also hit his stride with 40+ fantasy points in four of his recent games, regardless of Jrue’s status. With everyone off the court for today’s situation, Lonzo averages just over one fantasy point per minute with a usage rate of over 17 percent. Given his great form, an increase in usage and production per minute, and having topped 33 minutes in seven straight contests, Lonzo is an elite option tonight!
Al Horford (FD: $6,200): Joel Embiid will sit out another game tonight, and we feel that Al Horford is underpriced on FanDuel given this situation. When Embiid sits, Horford is averaging over 30 minutes per game, and over 37 fantasy points per game. While the Pacers have been good against centers over the last ten games, they still rank 28th in defensive efficiency on the season against the position. With Embiid off the court, Horford owns a usage rate over 22 percent, and averages a very healthy 1.18 fantasy points per minute. Horford is a must play in cash games today, and while he can be faded in GPPs, there is a lack of other strong PF options on Fanduel so fade at your own risk. Best of luck tonight!
Enes Kanter (DK: $5,400): Daniel Thiess and Robert Wiliams will both be sitting out tonight, opening up more minutes for Kanter. Kanter is coming off of a monster game where he put up a 22/19 double-double in just 23 minutes. Tonight, he faces a Bulls team that allows the third most rebounds and ranks among the bottom half of the league in defensive efficiency. Kanter averages a fantastic 1.3 fantasy points per minute with everyone off the court tonight, and owns a very nice usage rate of 20 percent. Lock Kanter into your lines with confidence tonight, as he has an elite floor/ceiling combination and steps into a great matchup with an increase in usage and opportunity!
