 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 1/27
Posted by Jeff Collins on Friday, January 27, 2017 - 17:09

As always, 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 Benny’s article, 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. Congrats to csx261, who won the $12 FD qualifier last night with the lineup that Tommy built on the show. Tommy is sick that he never hit “enter,” but at least a Guru Elite member is going to Miami because of it. Point Guard Cash: Dragic, Lowry, Dellavedova GPP: Dragic, Lowry, Irving, Payton Notes: We like Dragic because he’s going to play 35+ minutes on the floor with the thin rotation due to injuries to Whiteside, Johnson, and Richardson. The matchup is a little worse with Jerian Grant starting, but you still should play him. Lowry has seen his usage jump from 24.4% with DeRozan, to 30.1% the last two games without him. He’s taking 20+ shots each game and I’d expect that to continue moving forward. Dellavedova is starting to get extra run again, and is probably safe enough in cash at his current price (though a little risky). Irving and Payton have a much point per dollar upside as anyone on the slate in a couple of great matchups.

Sacramento Kings @ Indiana Pacers

Vegas: Pacers -4, O/U: 212

Kings: 25th Pace, 22nd Scoring, 12th most points allowed

Pacers: 9th Pace, 14th Scoring, 8th most points allowed

DeMarcus Cousins - Boogie has picked up his game across the board with Rudy Gay out. He had to, because the rest of this team is nothing but role players. In his last six games he has gone for 55+ in five of them. He is averaging 28 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 defensive stats along the way. He gets to face a team with soft interior defense too, so the matchup is ideal.

Garrett Temple - Temple has been starting lately and while I do not expect a monster 35+ point game out of him, a nice solid 27-30 would be fine for the price.

Darren Collison - Ty Lawson is still playing about 20-24 minutes a game, but Collison has has been closer to 30 a game or more lately. He is still pretty cheap and the increased minutes raise his floor. The matchup is nice as well against a high paced weak defensive team.

Dallas Mavericks @ Oklahoma City Thunder

Vegas: Thunder -8, O/U: 200

Mavericks: Slowest pace, fewest points scored, 4th fewest points allowed

Thunder: 7th Pace, 12th Scoring, 13th most points allowed

Russell Westbrook - This is a short slate and it is tough to fade the guy who is the likeliest high scorer. With that said, he is pricey and this is the worst possible matchup. The Mavs play a very slow pace and OKC is a big favorite. There is so much risk here and the potential reward is not great due to Westbrook having a lower ceiling with the pace. He is definitely still capable of that 50-60 point game, but can he get upside into the 70s to make the salary justifiable? There is a lot of value tonight, so it is doable if you choose to go this route.

Steven Adams - Adams came back two games ago and is playing his normal minutes. His price is a tad below its normal levels though. Dallas struggles against big men, especially if Bogut is out. Even if he plays, he is playing limited minutes. I really like Adams for a slight discount today and likely low ownership.

Sacramento Kings @ Cleveland Cavaliers

Vegas: Cavs -11, O/U: 214

Cavs: 14th Pace, 5th Scoring, 13th fewest points allowed

Kings: 25th Pace, 22nd Scoring, 12th Most points allowed

Whenever the Cavaliers play, I always want exposure to the big three if I take anyone. I do not mess with guys like Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert unless one of the big 3 sit. My guess is all three are active here. LeBron is cash game only for me. The price tag and the fact he has help tend to give him a solid 55-60 point day, but that is not enough upside at the price. Kyrie Irving has been throwing up some massive scoring games lately and Kevin Love has a tough matchup with DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is not a good defender, but guys tend to get into foul trouble guarding him, which would push me more towards Kyrie as my favorite Cavalier to use here.

DeMarcus Cousins - I do not really love paying up for Boogie today either, but he is always a tournament option. With Rudy Gay out, he has been doing more on the offensive end. Hell, he basically has to. The scoring and rebounding numbers are up slightly, but he is racking up assists now as the offense runs through him and he is seeing more double teams. Cousins always has the ability to go off for 65-70 fantasy points, but I prefer a faster paced game to take that chance where he is also not an 11 point underdog.

Boston Celtics @ Washington Wizards

Vegas: Celtics -2, O/U: 218

Celtics: 18th Pace, 9th Scoring, 13th fewest points allowed

Wizards: 15th Pace, 10th Scoring, 10th most points allowed

This is the highest total on the board here and one of the better spots to target tonight.

Isaiah Thomas - My first reaction was I would rather have John Wall for $100 more. After I dug into the stats, I realized I was dead wrong. Both guys are capable of 50+ fantasy points, but IT@ has 47+ fantasy points in nine of his last eleven games. That is insane production. Avery Bradley is out for this one as well, so he gets a slight tick up there too. You can stack them up in tournaments if you choose, but I have Thomas > Wall if you can only afford one.
