DraftKings Must-Have
Tristan Thompson (DK: $4,500): Our Must-Have for our DraftKings users tonight is Celtics’ big man, Tristan Thompson. Thompson benefitted last game with Robert Williams being out and he will once again be out tonight paving the way for another great spot for TT. Thompson saw 25 minutes last game in this situation, but we anticipate him seeing a little closer to 30 tonight, boosting his upside even more. Last game he went for 30 DK points in 25 minutes, which slightly lines up with his normal FPPM in this situation as he sits at 1 FPPM and went for 1.2 last game. Thompson also gets an amazing matchup in the Warriors tonight who rank 26th in the league to opposing big men in terms of DK points allowed this season. Thompson is our favorite center tonight and we want him locked into all of your lineups on DK tonight!

FanDuel Must-Have
Daniel Theis (FD: $4,200): For our FanDuel users tonight we have Chicago big man, Daniel Theis as our Must-Have. Theis has grabbed a nice role with his new team and is still too cheap for his upside and safety as he garners a 1.02 FPPM rate in this situation to go with a 22% usage rate. Theis should see high 20s in minutes tonight as he faces off with the Cavs and actually gets to miss the tough center matchup and get the PF matchup that ranks 27th in the league, giving him some extra upside. Theis missed out on some minutes due to a blowout yesterday, so we think he will get back to his normal rotation tonight in a game with a low spread. We are looking to Theis in all formats tonight on FD! Good luck tonight!
