Goga Bitadze (DK: $3,000 FD: $3,900): Our overall Must-Have on tonight’s slate is Pacers center, Goga Bitadze. With Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner, and Domantas Sabonis out tonight, Goga is the one true center left for the Pacers tonight. With these guys off the court, we’re projecting Goga around 1.2 FPPM tonight with a 16.3% usage rate. They need the size to match up with Karl-Anthony Towns, so Goga is going to see as many minutes as he can handle. We’re projecting him for high-20s in minutes, which makes him the best value on both sites by far. He should see high ownership on both sites tonight for good reason. There are some centers in great spots tonight as you can see in our model, so if you want to play a second center on DraftKings or fade Bitadze in tournaments, that is okay. However, we are locking him in as our Must-Have on both sites!
Doug McDermott (DK: $4,100): For our DK Must-Have today we have Doug McDermott. We think Doug McBuckets is a great piece for DK lineups today as he is safe for optimal lineups and has a nice 8x ceiling in this situation. With all of the studs out for Indiana today, McDermott rocks around a 1 FPPM rate at .95 to go with nearly a 20% usage rate. McDermott also has shown tons of safety this season going 6x his DK price 64% of the time and will get a nice matchup against Minnesota who has been 28th in the league to his position over their last five games. We want McDermott locked into your optimal lineups on DK tonight!
Terry Rozier (FD: $7,400): Scary Terry comes in very underpriced on FanDuel tonight and we love starting our lines with him. He has topped 40 fantasy points in four of his last six outings and one of the two misses is a game where he only played 22 minutes due to a blowout. With Hayward, Ball, and Monk all off the floor, Terry sees his usage increase by 8% to a rate of over 30%, and his per minute production goes up to over 1.15 fantasy points per minute. He is in line to see minutes in the mid to high 30s again tonight as a focal point of the offense, and with his cheaper price tag on FD, we believe he has a very nice combination of floor and ceiling to be good across all formats.
