Deep night of daily fantasy basketball action tonight. There’s plenty of mid-range sleepers you can get in your lineups, so I’m gearing today’s pick more around some really deep sleepers most people won’t have in lineups tonight. It’s a risky strategy, however you should have no problem getting a good lineup together given all the games on the schedule.
G – AARON BROOKS
I’m not in love with Brooks, but he can catch a heater and have a big game. Likely the coach will limit him somewhat unless he’s going-off so my advice would be don’t overpay or stretch Brooks across a ton of lineups.
G – WILL BARTON
Who? Super gamblers special here, he’s probably not going to play 30 mins … but he’s the type of guy who’s going to play hard this time of year because his job isn’t safe like 90% of who he’s playing against.
F – TAJ GIBSON
Looks like Gasol is out, plus you have D-Rose out …. Gibson was dealing with an illness earlier in the week so you’ll want to double-check that he’s in tonight, but he usually steps up when guys down down in Chicago.
F – DANILO GALLINARI
Looks like he’s stepping up the last few games, and Denver is in really bad shape injury wise so he should get plenty of shots.
F – DANTE CUNNINGHAM
Very risky here and only a pick for someone really wanting to gamble. He should be around minimum price and get about 30 mins on an injury filled Pelicans team.
