Great night of daily fantasy NBA basketball action tonight with a full slate of games to chose from. Today I have my sleeper picks for the night.
G – AARON BROOKS
Make sure Derrick Rose is OUT – and if so, Brooks is a decent/cheap option at the point guard position.
G – JIMMY BUTLER
Was a sleeper last night and got you ~ 40 fantasy points. Likely the sites have his value the same for tonight’s game so you are free to start him again as long as he’s in the lineup.
G – ELFRID PAYTON
Risky playing rookies, and he hasn’t shot the ball well all year (.306% … ouch) but he gets assists and playing time due to injuries.
G – IMAN SHUMPERT
Has done well over the last 2 games and got 31 minuets last night and 19 points. He’s cheap enough to take a chance on, you just hope he can knock down the 3’s.
G – JAMAL CRAWFORD
Big game, the tensions should be high early on – which sometimes leads to foul calls. Crawford comes off the bench, so he could avoid all that and hit some 3’s.
F – TOBIAS HARRIS
Is still under average salary on a few sites I play on, and he’s a reliable option when healthy and not in foul trouble.
F – PATRICK PATTERSON
Risky, but with Amir Johnson likely out, and Jonas Valanciunas possibly out – that opens the door for more minuets for Patterson who had a nice game last night. You just hope he stays out of foul trouble against the Celtics bigs.
F – TAJ GIBSON
Make sure Taj is playing and Joakim Noah is out. Gibson should get the start if that is the case and he’s below average salary on most daily fantasy basketball websites.
