Evan Fournier (DK: $5,000; FD: $6,100; Y: $17): Our first and only NBA Must-Have for tonight’s small slate is Evan Fournier. He is in a great spot tonight against a Hawks team that ranks dead last against shooting guards. This game currently has the second-highest total on the slate at 223 points with a close spread of only 1.5 favoring the Hawks. Over the past month, Fournier has only gone under 30 minutes one time, giving him the guarantee of 30 minutes and the upside for 39. We project him for around 35 in this close game, giving him ample opportunity to put up big numbers. Fournier is also in a huge pace-up matchup for himself and the Magic. The Magic currently rank 26th in the league in pace and will be facing the fastest paced team in the league. While Fournier is not benefiting from any injury news yet (waiting for Aaron Gordon news) he still sees the second-highest usage percentage of the starting five at 23.9% to go with a .83 FPPM. If Gordon does end up getting ruled out, Fournier sees nearly another 3% in usage and .05 increase in FPPM. On this small slate, we absolutely love Fournier’s established role and upside and want him locked into all of your lineups. Good luck!
