DraftKings Must-Have
Trey Burke (DK: $3000): With Jalen Brunson and Josh Richardson out, Burke is likely to get 30+ minutes and see usage in the high teens to low 20s. When Burke gets a lot of minutes he tends to produce in fantasy because of his aggressive style of play. In the only game this season in which Burke had over 20 minutes, he scored 17 points and hit four threes. Priced at the stone minimum on Draftkings, it would be hard for Burke to not return value at his price.

FanDuel Must-Have
Tim Hardaway Jr. (FD: $5500): The Dallas Mavericks are the most recent team to have been hit by COVID-19 protocols. Players out due to tracing protocols are Josh Richardson, Jalen Brunson, and Dorian Finney-Smith. Without these players, it makes the backcourt of Dallas relatively thin, which brings us to our FanDuel Must Have, Tim Hardaway Jr. On the season, Hardaway Jr. obtains a 22.2% usage across an average of 29.1 minutes a game at a rate of .95 FPPM. Tonight, we are projecting Hardaway for 35.3 minutes and a usage rate of 23.04% at a rate of .98 FPPM for 32.71 FD points. With the lack of depth in the backcourt and slight up in pace matchup, feel confident utilizing one of your shooting guard spots on Hardaway Jr.!
