Ricky Rubio (FDraft: $13,600 DK: $7,500 FDuel $7,400):
Guess who’s back? You guessed it, that guy Ricky Rubio. Though he didn’t blow us away in his last game, we believe that was about a floor game for him, and with prices failing to budge at all, we will take a 4.7x value game as a floor all day long. Rubio scored his lowest point total of the series, grabbing the least amount of rebounds, and leaving multiple assist opportunities up for grabs by a few missed shots from his teammates. Rubio should be well over 8k on DK/FDuel and over 16k on FDraft. However, he is not particularly close to any of these marks. With 25/10/10 upside (shown in game three), his price is just flat out too low for this matchup, as well as other values around his price. Rubio has played very well over the first four games this series and as the Jazz look to close out the Thunder tonight, Rubio will be an integral part in this game. He shot the ball the least of the series (very poorly from three as well) last game as Donovan Mitchell exploded, and even if Mitchell has another great game, Rubio has an incredible floor with massive upside. At a somewhat weak point guard position, we will gladly lock in the Spaniard as one of our overall Must-Haves for this four game slate!
Otto Porter (FDraft: $11,500, DK: $5,400, FDuel: $5,700):
Our second Must-Have for tonight’s playoff slate is the Wizards’ swingman, Otto Porter. Otto has been extremely steady in this series and just saw huge minutes in game four. After logging 40 minutes last game, Otto looks to be back at full playing time for the eighth seeded Wizards. If Washington wants to win this game, they are going to need production all around. Porter hasn’t flashed massive upside this series, but we know he’s capable of putting up 25/10 with some steals and blocks thrown in. Averaging 24 fantasy points per game this series, he has been very steady, while holding a fairly respectable price. In the playoffs, his scoring has been down from his season average by more than four points, and we expect that to regress to the mean soon. With Porter’s defensive prowess and extended minutes, we love the upside he brings to our teams along with the upside he could present. Lock in Rubio and Porter into your DFS lineups and let’s end the night in the green!
