Tyus Jones (FD: $4,000): Tyus Jones comes in entirely too cheap on FanDuel tonight, as he will continue to draw the start in the absence of Ja Morant. Last game, we saw Tyus get a one percent usage increase (up to just under 19 percent), and a nine percent increase in assist rate (up to 41 percent), while racking up 25 minutes. We can expect a floor of minutes in the mid 20s, with upside for around 30 tonight. Averaging .83 fantasy points per minute on FanDuel scoring, Tyus provides elite value for your lines with a very nice floor and some solid upside. Lock him in with confidence as he should have a great opportunity to capitalize on an increased role, and provide nice salary relief on tonight’s slate of games.
Frank Kaminsky (DK: $4,400 FD: $4,100): Aaron Baynes was ruled out, and we want DraftKings users lock in Kaminsky. Frank should now see around 27 minutes and has averaged .92 FPPM on DK this season. With a higher floor for his minutes now, Kaminsky is an excellent value play against a Charlotte team that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to power forwards and the third-most fantasy points to centers this season. In five games without Baynes this season, Kaminsky’s FPPM goes up over 1.0 on both sites. With his higher floor and great upside against the Hornets tonight, Kaminsky must be locked into all lineups on both sites!
Dennis Smith Jr. (DK: $3,200 FD: $3,600): We will be keeping the value Must-Have train rolling here and have everyone lock in DSJ on both sites. With Ntilikina out tonight, DSJ likely sees close to 30 minutes against Milwaukee. Milwaukee has allowed the sixth-most points to point guards this season so far making the matchup elite for DSJ. With a 21% usage rate this season that jumps up even more with Ntilikina out, DSJ will see a lot of action tonight. Smith played 38 minutes when Ntilkina went out last game and took advantage of the minutes, putting up 17 points and 7 assists against a much stingier Boston defense. Smith has to be locked in all formats tonight with great upside and a floor pushing 30 minutes!
