*I will be using DRAFTKINGS PRICING
With only 3 games on the slate for tonight, it’s going to be all about finding players with the highest ceilings. Tonight is not the night to concern yourselves with a player’s floor
Steph Curry ($9,500 vs NO)
He may be expensive, but I expect Curry to come out firing 3’s right from the opening tip. The Pelican’s don’t have a single player that can even come close to shutting down the reigning MVP in this game. I expect Holiday to play less than 25min, just in case you were thinking he could be that defender to give Curry problems. Look for Curry to prove that last year was no fluke, and what better stage to do so then opening night on national TV.
Mo Williams ($4,900 vs Chi)
I expected his price to be closer to $6,000 so at $4,900…Mo Williams is a good deal. His ceiling is extremely high tonight. He should find himself with plenty of open 3 point shots as the Bulls swarm around Lebron. It’s difficult to project stats for opening night where quirky things can happen, but I expect 30+ Min and 12+ FGA from Mr 50 points.
Jimmy Butler ($7,600 vs Cle)
Jimmy Butler may finally have the reins unleashed with a new coach and a much more complex offensive system under Hoiberg. Look for Butler to flirt with 24+ FGA and close to 35 points.
Draymond Green ($6,900 vs No)
Unless Anthony Davis plans on guarding Green for the entire game tonight, I expect big things from the newly signed Green. He was a stat stuffer last year. This year should be no different, and the pace of this game will be ideal for a player of Greens abilities.
Al Horford ($7,300 vs Det)
The Center options tonight are basically between Drummond and Horford on the high end of salary, or any number of low end salary centers that will be lucky to scratch out 15 Fantasy Points. I would suggest going with Horford and constructing your lineup around him. He has the most upside potential in comparison to other C options. Big Al Jr is fully healthy and should be able to take Drummond outside of his comfort zone on defense, where Horford will show off his newest skill..the 3 point shot.
Lots of luck to all my fellow DFS players!
