Dennis Smith Jr. (DK: $4,000): DSJ should draw the start again tonight against a Magic team that ranks 23rd in defensive efficiency against the point guard position this season. He should also see safer minutes with Delon Wright and Killian Hayes expected to both be out tonight. He saw 23 minutes last game even with Wright in, and scored a very solid 23 fantasy points. With Wright out, DSJ should see his minutes push to the 30 range, and should see an uptick in usage. He has averaged around .8 fantasy points per minute so far this season, and we believe he has very nice point per dollar upside at a value price point for your lines. Lock him in with confidence!
Michael Porter Jr. (FD: $5,700): The Nuggets will be thin again at forward tonight, with Green, Harris, and Millsap all out. Last game when Green went down injured, we saw Porter see 33 minutes on his way to over 33 fantasy points. He has seen 30 minutes in back to back games now, and we expect this to continue tonight. Porter is averaging over one fantasy point per minute so far this season, sporting a usage rate of over 20 percent. He faces off against a Hawks team that ranks amongst the bottom half of the league in defensive efficiency against both forward slots this season, and is a great option for upside in tournaments tonight
