He is Averaging 35 DK points and 34 FD points per game, Dennis Schroder seems to be in great form. Part of this is due to his 30.1 usage rate this season. He comes into a matchup against the Cavaliers that ranks 24 against point guards as they allow an average of 39.1 fantasy points to their opposition. Not to mention they allow an average of 223.64 fantasy points per game this year and the game is projected to be played at a decent pace.

A lot of skill and a good matchup for Dennis Schroder tonight! Projected Points 30.


Emmanuel Mudiay DEN @ DET Fanduel 3700 Draftkings 4400

He is on the road facing the Pistons tonight that ranks 18 against the opposing guards this season, Emmanuel Mudiay makes a case for himself as one of the best options on the slate, relative to his price. He averages 19.7 DK points and 18.5 FD points per game beside his 0.87 pts/minute.  He typically gets a decent amount of opportunities per game as he maintains an average usage rate of 24%. Another reason why the matchup is good for Emmanuel Mudiay is that the Pistons has been giving up around 210.32 fantasy points per game this year. All signs pointing in the right direction for Emmanuel Mudiay, give him a look! Projected Points 14.


Reggie Jackson DET vs DEN Fanduel 6100 Draftkings 5900

A great price for a great all around player. He is worth heavy consideration. Projected Points 32.


John Wall WAS @ BKN Fanduel 9300 Draftkings 8200

Set to matchup against the Nets, there is a lot to like about John Wall . Not only is he facing a team that ranks 8 against the point guards this year, with around 46.3 fantasy points given up to them per game, but, he also has a pretty good pt / minute ratio of 1.22 . It has translated into an average of 42.3 DK points and 41.7 fanduel points per game. This can be heavily contributed to his 28% usage rate, which implies he is getting decent production on both sides of the court, especially on offense. Stuffing the stat sheet against a not so great defensive team in the Nets as they give up 233.46 points per game seems highly probable for John Wall. Projected Points 56.
