Trae YoungHawks ($9,400) at Lakers
Young is averaging 26.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 10.9 assists over his last 10 games and has produced more than 60 DK points twice. He should do well against the Lakers, who give up the league’s fifth most points per game, including a league-high 26.4 to point guards.
Caris LeVertCavaliers ($5,800) at Nuggets
LeVert is up for a fourth consecutive start after reaching 39 DK points twice and averaging 18.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals in the last three outings. He faces a favorable matchup against the Nuggets, who will be on the second game of a back-to-back and also allow opponents to shoot an average of 48.3 percent from the field.
Kevin DurantNets ($10,000) at Pelicans
Durant continues to be highly effective on both ends of the floor averaging 30.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.0 blocks through five games, including two with more than 60 DK points. He recorded 47.8 DK points in the last meeting with the Pelicans and has an advantage as they’re without Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
Tobias Harris76ers ($6,600) vs. Bulls
Harris tallied 39.5 DK points in the last matchup and will continue to take on a bigger role in the absence of Joel Embiid. He averages 16.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals and has an opportunity to stand out against the Bulls since they give up the second-most points to power forwards.
Kristaps PorzingisWizards ($9,600) at Thunder
Porzingis is averaging 24.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.4 steals across five games, including two over 50 DK points. He should keep it rolling against the Thunder, who are shorthanded in the frontcourt and average the most rebounds against.
James Harden76ers ($10,100) vs. Bulls
Harden needs to step up again with Joel Embiid out after he led the way with 26 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and a steal for a total of 50.5 DK points last time out. He also topped 60 DK points in four of his last 10 – including a high of 71.8 – and is likely to do well against the Bulls, who give up the third-most 3s per game.
Jalen DurenPistons ($4,900) at Spurs
Duren is averaging 9.5 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists across the last 10 games, with more than 25 DK points in six. He should excel against the Spurs considering they allow the league’s most points per game to centers.
Rui HachimuraWizards ($4,700) at Thunder
Hachimura is averaging 18.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in seven games since returning from a month-long absence. He has a good chance to flourish against the Thunder, who gave up the sixth-most points.
Norman PowellClippers ($4,800) at Timberwolves
Powell averages 15.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists and surpassed 30 DK points in three of the last seven outings. He has a favorable matchup against the Timberwolves, who allow the second-most three-pointers and third-most points per game to small forwards.
Isaac OkoroCavaliers ($3,100) at Nuggets
Okoro is in line for a second consecutive start while averaging 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists from the last 10 games.
Victor OladipoHeat ($4,700) at Suns
Oladipo has been finding his groove of late averaging 10.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.1 steals in 29 minutes over the last 10. He should do well against the Suns, who remain shorthanded in the backcourt.
