The Shot Dude: Makin' Jay-Z Proud
Can I get a woop woop?
It's Sunday, and there are NBA games to watch, so no need to be glum.
Your favorite Shot Dude has hip-hopped all over today's tilt and found some jammers to help your fantasy team.
Sample these ballers and build your own squad into the winning team I know you can. Check out all six games on the schedule with the help of the Bovada data tool located on our Home page:
FanDuel is the place to play fantasy games every day. They never stop producing the best variety of contests around, so include them in your daily routine.
Jrue Holiday, New Orleans ($7700) ... is coming off a monster 30-point effort against Portland and has 30 or more fantasy points in six of his last nine. Holiday's usage rate is at 25.0, and he's now averaging over a fantasy point per game. At home against the Clippers, let's put dude down for 34-36 fantasy points.
Isaiah Thomas, Boston ($7700) ... has been super-consistent with at least 30 fantasy points in eight of his last nine, and should be a staple in your cash games. I like all the Celtics to put up phat stats against the 76ers today, considering Philly gives up the 28th-highest fantasy point totals to opposing teams. Watch Thomas score in the 35-37 fantasy point range today.
Khris Middleton, Milwaukee ($7700) ... has come back to earth in his last two games after three heavenly outings of 40 or more fantasy points. I think he gets his batteries re-charged in today's home tilt against Utah. The Jazz are like a much worse team on the road, going 11-23 this season. I foresee a 32-34 fantasy point outing from Middleton.
Avery Bradley, Boston ($5000) ... never seems to stray from making fantasy value for long. Boston has the highest team total on today's slate at over 113 points. This total is also the highest at over 215 points. Avery will get his share in this track meet to the tune of 25-27 fantasy points.
Gordon Hayward, Utah ($7000) ... has been over 28 fantasy points in five of his last eight games and faces a Milwaukee team that ranks 24th in the league against opposing small forwards. I see Hayward being hard for the Bucks to stop, so put him down for 32-34 fantasy points in this one.
Evan Turner, Boston ($5500) ... is another Celtic who will find success against the sieve of a defense that Philadelphia employs. The 76ers are the NBA's third-worst team at defending small forwards, and Turner has averaged almost 24 fantasy points a game this season. I think he obliterates that average today with 31-33 fantasy points.
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia ($7000) ... has stepped up into a heavier offensive workload with Jahlil Okafor out for the season. Dude's rung-up five 30-point fantasy games in his last six. The Celtics play great defense, except against bigs. They rank 25th against power forwards. Noel will eat today and grab 35-37 fantasy points.
Ryan Anderson, New Orleans ($6100) ... has scored 29 and 30 points in his last two outings. Dude's also rewarded fantasy players with at least 38 fantasy points in three of his last five games. Since Anthony Davis will not play today, Anderson will see even more offensive responsibility. I put him in the 39-41 fantasy point area today.
Robin Lopez, New York ($5600) ... has been over 26 fantasy points in six of his last eight games with no sign of slowing down. The Knicks have loved his unexpected outpouring of production that should continue today against the Kings. New York has a team total over 107 points, and I think Lopez finishes with 27-29 fantasy points tonight.
Your favorite Shot Dude sincerely hopes you'll be bouncing after a winning night.
