Point Guard

Coby White - Chicago Bulls (vs. Washington Wizards)

Russell Westbrook will be out tonight against the Chicago Bulls (rest). Bradley Beal will receive most of the offensive usage in one of the highest O/U’s on the slate (currently 237). Coby White will match up against Ish Smith and/or Raul Neto - two matchups that simply don’t worry me. White has averaged 32.6 minutes per game over his last five games. His output has been consistent but somewhat lacking, reaching a minimum of 25.5 DK points in each of his last four. With Otto Porter and Lauri Markanen OUT for Chicago as well as Russell Westbrook for Washington, this should be THE game to target for DFS purposes. The Bulls are - 4.5 point favorites with a 237 O/U. 

Other PG Option: Ish Smith - Washington Wizards (vs. Chicago Bulls)

Shooting Guard

Bradley Beal - Washington Wizards (vs. Chicago Bulls)

With Russell Westbrook out for tonight’s matchup with the Chicago Bulls, who will see an offensive usage uptick? The answer, Bradley Beal. If he can score at will tonight (which I believe that he can), this could potentially be a massive game for Beal. He should match up with Zach LaVine, a much improved defensive player. Although LaVine has improved his defense, he’s still going to come up short if trying to limit Beal (with Westbrook OUT). Players from Chicago that I would recommend investing in (as well), in order to have exposure to both sides of this, high scoring game are Patrick Williams, Denzel Valentine, and Zach LaVine

Other SG Option: Zach LaVine - Chicago Bulls (vs. Washington Wizards) 

Small Forward

Patrick Williams - Chicago Bulls (vs. Washington Wizards)

Love this play! With Otto Porter and Lauri Markanen OUT for Chicago, let’s let the rookie work tonight. The matchup should be no problem against Washington’s Rui Hachimura and/or Deni Avdija. Williams’ salaries on Yahoo, DraftKings, and FanDuel are way too low. He carries massive upside with a high floor to boot. Williams will have more looks to shoot tonight with Markanen out for 2-4 weeks with a sprained shoulder. 

Other SF Options: Denzel Valentine - Chicago Bulls (Washington Wizards)

Center

Gorgui Dieng/Xavier Tillman - Memphis Grizzlies (vs. Toronto Raptors)

The Grizzlies will be without Brandon Clarke tonight. Memphis was already banged up and now Clarke gets added to the list. Gorgui Dieng & Xavier Tilllman both become big-time DFS plays tonight. They face a Toronto Raptors team that simply doesn’t scare me this season. Without Gasol and Ibaka in Toronto, the Raptors don’t look as cohesive. Invest in one of these two remaining big men for the Grizzlies. At such low salaries, these two bigs will see major time on the court tonight.

Other C Option: DeMarcus Cousins - Houston Rockets (vs. Charlotte Rockets) & Jakob Poeltl - San Antonio Spurs (vs. Golden State Warriors)
