Jordan Clarkson (DK: $3,900 FD: $4,500)For our first Must-Have for today’s slate, we’re going right back to the Must-Have from night one of the NBA restart, Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson is coming off of a massive game the other night, putting up 37 fantasy points while playing 32 minutes. While most people would have expected to see his price shoot up, he actually saw a $300 decrease on DK and just a $200 increase on FD. At these prices, Clarkson is a lock for us once again and is expected to see around the same minutes. With Bojan Bogdanovic out for the rest of the season, Clarkson not only sees some more minutes, but also gets a solid usage boost putting him at second on the team in usage at 26%. Clarkson is a tireless scorer off the bench and will continue to shoot no matter what, which is shown last game, dropping 23 points and shooting just 17% from three. At this price and with such high upside, we will absolutely be locking Clarkson in once again today.

Kawhi Leonard (DK: $8,900 FD: $9,500)Our second Must-Have is Kawhi Leonard as the Clippers take on the Pelicans. Leonard is projected to be one of the highest owned plays on both sites today. The Clippers and Pels are projected to have the quickest pace of play on the slate and the Clippers have the highest team total. Leonard is projected to see 34 minutes tonight and has averaged right around 1.52 FPPM on the season. The Pelicans have allowed the 10th-most points to small forwards this season, so Kawhi draws a solid matchup. We think his minutes are a little safer today than some other studs like James and Davis, who essentially have the one seed on lock. Kawhi has gone for 6x value 45% of the time at this price in his projected minutes range today. Kawhi is a lock today in cash and GPP contests with plenty of value plays available to easily fit a few studs into your lineups!
