The Portland Trail Blazers will host the Phoenix Suns tonight. With Ayton and Labissiere both out in this game, there are some players that are must-buys in daily fantasy.
The Portland Trail Blazers and the Phoenix Suns square off tonight, in what should be a hotly contested game between two teams jostling for position at the bottom of the playoff ladder.
This game’s implications aren’t limited to the real world however, as there are several daily fantasy basketball steals waiting to be picked up here.
Devin Booker, $7,500 – Coming off a 32 point, 10 assists game against the Kings, Devin Booker should continue to produce against Portland tonight. The $7,500 price tag on Booker is a little low for what Booker provides for the Suns. With the lack of perimeter defense from the Blazers, Booker is a must-buy tonight.
CJ McCollum, $6,600 – The last time Portland played against Phoenix, McCollum had a big game. Scoring 30 points, to go along with 7 rebounds and 6 assists. This was a great game for McCollum, as he ended with 50.8 fantasy points on DraftKings. If CJ can score anywhere close to that same mark in this game, $6,600 is a steal.
Aron Baynes, $4,900 – With Deandre Ayton out tonight, Aaron Baynes will get the start. Baynes played great basketball for Phoenix while Ayton was out for the first chunk of the season. Following Ayton’s suspension, Baynes was promoted to the starting lineup where he averaged 15.5 points, 6 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game while shooting 42.9 percent from deep across 12 games before succumbing to injury. Aron’s value at $4,900 is will allow you to have a quality center in your lineup tonight while having extra money to spend on the more expensive players.
Anthony Tolliver, $3,000 – With Skal Labissiere out tonight, Tolliver should get some more playing time. While Tolliver hasn’t been a consistent contributor this season, he’s hit 11 of his last 22 attempts from deep. In his last outing against the Lakers, he put up 12 points, 3 rebounds and an assist while drilling four triples. At $3,000, Tolliver could easily end up with at least 17 fantasy points tonight, making him a potential great value pick.
Hopefully implementing these strong value picks will help you excel in daily fantasy.
