Welcome to today’s DFS Delivery article.
We have a seven-game slate on our hands tonight, but we are in the last week of the season and we can get Pistoned or Thundered by any team, so trend with caution and stay on top of the news, otherwise, you are burning your money!
With that said, let’s go check out some of my best picks, at the time of the writing.
Jayson Tatum ($10,500) – The Celtics seem to want to get to the 1st spot in the east and that makes their studs very tempting since they will be getting their normal run. Tatum has over 40 fantasy points in three previous games against the Bucks and the possibility of him being in a close game for 35-40 minutes on the floor is something I cannot ignore.
Karl-Anthony Towns ($9,600) – Towns should be in for a normal workload Thursday night and has scored close to 50 fantasy points in three straight games. The Spurs cannot handle Towns, since he is averaging 70-plus fantasy points in the previous two games he faced them and the combination of motivation and matchup makes him look like an excellent option for tonight.
Scottie Barnes ($7,000) – OG Anunoby ($5,700; thigh) is already questionable and I have a feeling that he won’t be the only one in the injury report come game-time for Toronto. I can see Barnes being on the floor regardless and if he is going to have some other starters missing the game, he is going to be a must-play option.
Mo Bamba ($6,900) – Play Centers against Charlotte, right? Well, Bamba has been playing very well lately and seems to be getting a lot of minutes, in spite of some late-game shenanigans by the Magic. The Hornets have something to play for, so it could get ugly fast, but Bamba can produce a lot in limited time and again, I see him being out there for his normal run despite how the game is going.
Tre Jones ($5,300) – The Spurs have clinched a Play-In berth and Dejounte Murray will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday. In Murray’s absence, Tre Jones has started in all three games and has been playing 33-plus minutes. Also, he has 30-plus fantasy points in each game. The matchup is not the easiest one but the minutes are going to be there and he has shown that he can produce at a high level regardless.
Ignas Brazdeikis ($3,500) – Well, I have been winning money with the guy, so why not go to him again. Franz Wagner (ankle) has already been ruled out for this evening’s contest and that opens the door to huge minutes for Brazdeikis, who has logged 37.2 minutes and 36.2 minutes respectively in his last two appearances, plus he has a double-double in six straight games. He should see all the minutes that he can handle and let’s face it, how many times do you get to roster a guy with such a cool name!
Honorable Mentions: Nikola Jokic ($11,500), Brandon Ingram ($8,300), Jakob Poeltl ($6,500), Will Barton ($5,800), Mo Wagner ($4,600)
