Andre Iguodala (DK: $4,000; FD: $4,300):
Our first Must-Have of the night is former Finals MVP, Andre Iguodala. Iggy will see a solid bump in minutes tonight in the absence of star Kevin Durant. He comes in at a very depleted price point, giving him an opportunity to be an elite value play given his increased opportunity in this contest. He is a solid fantasy point per minute producer, averaging .87 with Durant off the floor. His usage is not ideal, at under 12 percent, but given his price, we still believe he has a clear path to value tonight in a game with the second highest total on the slate. In his last two matchups against the Rockets, he has averaged right at 20 fantasy points per game, both of which Durant was active for. Lock him in with confidence tonight as he will use an increased role to create nice value for tonight’s slate.
Jerami Grant (DK: $4,800; FD: $5,900):
Oklahoma City squares off with Brooklyn tonight in a matchup that favors the Oklahoma City big men. Brooklyn has been horrible against centers and forwards and they will be without DeMarre Carroll, who is arguably their best defender. Grant has a safe floor of minutes and production and his upside is boosted tremendously if Markieff Morris is ruled out for tonight’s contest (which we believe he will be). Brooklyn’s lack of frontcourt defense also increases the upside for Grant. Lastly, the power forward position is barren tonight outside of Grant and a few other decent options. Grant is by far our favorite forward and we will be locking him into our lineups. Join us in the War Room for our other favorite plays on tonight’s slate!
