 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 12/15
Posted by Jeff Collins on Friday, December 15, 2017 - 16:11

The rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations in the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information. The idea is not that you use ONLY players from this article to build your lineups, but rather all of our content from other articles, to our cheat sheets and videos along with our projections algorithm and optimizer. If you’re trying to only use players under the “cash” section to build your cash lineups for instance, you’re going to have a hard time. Instead, use some of those players as building blocks and fill in around them.

  • Vegas: Hornets -5, 203.5
  • Heat: 23rd pace, 26th scoring, 8th points allowed
  • Hornets: 9th pace, 16th scoring, 20th points allowed

Heat: Couple injury things to discuss here. Whiteside is still out, but he has been for a while now. Tyler Johnson is expected back after missing Wednesday’s game with migraines. Justise Winslow is expected to miss after suffering an injury in the first half of that Blazers matchup. This is good news for us in fantasy. The biggest problem with the perimeter guys on Miami is minutes. They use a rotation of Dragic, Waiters, Winslow, Richardson, Tyler Johnson, and even Wayne Ellington on the perimeter. When you are getting decent minutes for 6 guys, no one really plays a heavy load and it caps the upside. The more people that are limited or out means more time for the other guys still left. Just look at the last game they played. With Tyler Johnson out and Winslow going down, you saw 30+ minutes from Ellington and 37 from Richardson and Waiters. Now technically they are adding a guy this time with Johnson back, so I would expect all those minutes to creep down a bit. You should still see 30+ out of Richardson and Waiters though. Ellington had a big shooting game putting up 24 points last time out, but chasing that doesn’t seem to be the smartest idea today. I would rather grab a guy like Waiters or even go cheap with Tyler Johnson if I was taking a wing player here. I am not a huge fan of the frontcourt guys, but James Johnson is starting to heat up (All pun intended). He has not really flashed upside though and this is not a soft spot. HE can make value, but it’s not a slam dunk.

Studs You can honestly make a case for any of the five high priced guys going off today. Westbrook is the top of the optimizer and the paced up matchup with Indiana is a nice spot for him. He may draw some Oladipo defense and all the other high usage guys are playing though.

 Scott's NBA GPP Plays - 12/13
Posted by Scott Christensen on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 17:02

Milos Teodosic ($3,900 DK, $4,500 FD) There’s a little risk here as Teodosic played only 21 minutes last game. However, he got up 12 shots in that time, including 9 threes, and we should expect him to take on a few more minutes going forward. Milos was 53% from two and $39% from three during his Euro League career so he should shoot better going forward.

  • Clippers: 17th pace, 16th scoring, 21st points allowed
  • Magic: 7th pace, 11th scoring, 28th points allowed

Clippers: This is a solid spot for a Clippers team that is paced up against one of the least efficient defenses in the league. Orlando has given up a ton of points, so this spot is soft. My favorite play in terms of raw points is Lou Williams, but man that price tag is getting expensive. He has gone for 42+ fantasy points in 5 of his last 8 games and this is a favorable pace scenario for upside. He’s the likely high scorer, but not a guy I want to go all in on. Another guy I am interested in is DeAndre Jordan. Jordan has gone for 40+ in 3 of the last 5 and 47 twice in his last three games. That’s really high upside for a guy in the low $7K range. The matchup here is favorable and the pace benefits him, so I do like him as well today. The return of Milos Teodosic hurt Austin Rivers a little. Rivers relies on volume to get stuff done. He saw a few fewer minutes and predictably underperformed his recent averages. I like Teodosic and the price, but he needs more than 20 minutes if we expect upside. Gallo is still listed as questionable after sitting out and burning a lot of people the other day. I still expect him to sit this one out, which means guys like Wes Johnson and Sam Dekker could see more run again. Neither has elite upside or a high floor, so I’m probably not using either of them. Montrez Harrell has picked up some of the Blake minutes since his injury. It has not been a ton though as he and Dekker seem to be splitting them with Dekker seeing more.
