Tuesday Pickups of the Day

Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

In daily play tonight, Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Andre Drummond all look like must-plays to me. You can swap LeBron for Stephen Curry, but I think LeBron is much more valuable than most of the alternatives at small forward, but you can live with a Reggie Jackson or Jeff Teague if you can't afford Curry. In short, I'd rather have LeBron than Steph. I also have Nikola Mirotic in all my lineups, along with the following cheap guys. 

 

Tony Snell - He's starting for the Bulls and the price is right. You'll need guys like this to fill in your lineup. 

 

Kent Bazemore - He's starting for ATL and I have Snell and Bazemore in all my lineups so that I can afford the big guns. 

 

Dante Cunningham - He's another cheap starting forward and he works out well alongside Brow.

 

Aaron Brooks - Derrick Rose should be on a minutes count and Brooks should get plenty of run tonight. 

 

Nate Robinson - Jrue Holiday is also on a minutes count and Lil Nate could be a sneaky play tonight. Ish Smith is another option here.

 

Mo Williams - He's playing for Kyrie Irving, but his price tag's a little high. If he gets hot, he could be worth it. 

 

Enjoy opening night!!
