Malachi Flynn (DK: $4,200; FD: $5,300):
The Toronto Raptors will take on the Los Angeles Lakers without the services of key guards in their rotation which include Gary Trent Jr. and Fred VanVleet. With significant loss of depth at the guard position, Malachi Flynn is our first Must-Have of the night! Coming in at a discount on both sites, Flynn looks to easily exceed his value on Sunday night. In similar matchups and price range, Flynn has 6x his value 100% of the time, 7x 78%, and 8x 44%. In a matchup against the Lakers, who have been courteous to the guard position as of late ( 22/30 in the last five games), Flynn should have no problem reaching value given his opportunity tonight. Don’t think twice and feel confident plugging in Flynn in your lineups on both sites!

Must-Have #2

Tyrese Haliburton  (DK: $7,300; FD: $7,600):
Tyrese Haliburton and Kings will take on the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night in what should be a competitive game. Currently sitting at the second highest total of the night (227.5), Haliburton gets a generous matchup against the Mavericks who rank top 10 in defensive efficiency. Still without the services of De’Aaron Fox, Haliburton is set to handle all that he can as one of the lead producers of offense on the Kings. Tonight we project him for 37 minutes of play and to produce at a 1.16 FPPM clip. In a game that should remain close throughout, Haliburton is our second Must-Have of the night with solidified minutes and opportunity against the Mavs.
