    We have ourselves a quiet little four-game Tuesday slate on our hands with every game starting at a different time. This is an interesting slate with half the teams on one end of a back-to-back during silly season.

    Even with a small slate there’s some quality options throughout the mid-range and value that is likely to open up. With two players in the Super Saiyan tier and only one other above 10K, we have the potential to load it up with the right mix of value later.

    Keep an eye on the injury report as we approach, as there has already been a few things break as I’ve been typing that’ll change plays. I’ll keep this one brief on such a small slate.

    Player Tiers

    Expensive Tier

    Trae Young ($10,400) “Say hello to the bad guy” (RIP Scott Hall). Young returns to New York for the first time since sending the Knicks home in the first round of the playoffs last year. Trae is averaging nearly 48 fantasy points in two games against the Knicks this season, but we should expect more from him in this one as he feeds off the crowd once again. In the two previous games he’s averaging under 10 combined rebounds and assists, which is a far cry from the over 14 he is averaging on the year. For a nice extra boost, Bogdan Bogdanovic is questionable, meaning Trae might get some extended minutes running the second-unit on top of his already full plate.

    Mid-Tier 

    Jordan Poole ($7,400) – In Poole’s last nine games his lowest DK output is 32.5 points. He’s been absolutely cruising. Now Steph Curry is out for the foreseeable future, a spot in the starting lineup is his for the taking, and the lowly Magic are on the schedule next. 20 points scored is practically a given here, and there is so much upside for more with all of the opportunity that he has in front of him.

    Value

    Chuma Okeke ($4,400) – Okeke has quietly played over 30 minutes in his last two appearances, Jalen Suggs is once again out to shuffle the rotation, and they’re playing against a Warriors team that only has one true center on the roster. I think it’s very conceivable to see Okeke get over 30 minutes in a third straight contest while seeing time at both forward spots, and potentially a couple as a small-ball center. He hasn’t been making his shots, but the majority of them come from beyond the arc, so if he can connect on a few extra it’ll be a nice bonus to what he already brings to the table.

    Obi Toppin ($3,200) – This is a change I made as I was typing, as Julius Randle got ruled out this morning. With Randle out of the game, Toppin should slide into the starting lineup (or at least a heavier workload) and make for an easy bargain play. Toppin has only made two starts this year, and in the last one he went off for a 19/6/6/2/1 line with a three for good measure, in a whopping 45 minutes. And no, this game did not go to overtime. He may not replicate that here, but at this price we should be giving him the chance to.
