C Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves
DraftKings: $10,000 , FanDuel: $11,400, Yahoo: $51
Karl-Anthony Towns is in a good as spot as he will be this season. The Wizards are one of the worst defensive teams in the league. They are particularly bad when it comes to defending opposing centers. This game has the highest implied total on the slate. You should start your lineups with Towns.
SG Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards
DraftKings: $8,500 , FanDuel: $9,300, Yahoo: $39
Sticking with the Timberwolves and Wizards matchup Bradley Beal is also a top play. Beal is coming off a 40 point night in which he put up over 60 fantasy points. Washington has an implied team total of 117; Beal will be responsible for most of that.

PG/SG D'Angelo Russell, Golden State Warriors
DraftKings: $8,000 , FanDuel: $9,300, Yahoo: $39
Russell has picked up the scoring slack for the Warriors. He has scored at least 30 points in four of his last five contests. The Warriors average 110 points per game at the Chase Center.
PF Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors
DraftKings: $5,300, FanDuel: $6,900, Yahoo: $27
Green has struggled with injuries and poor play to start the season, as he gets more time on the floor I think he will get into a good rhythm, let's not forget how much of a stat stuffer he can be. Boston struggles vs. opposing power forwards and allow over 20 points and 13-plus rebounds per game.
PG/SG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder
DraftKings:$5,900 , FanDuel:$7,300, Yahoo: $26
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game, yet he remains reasonably priced. Tonight's opponent, the 76ers, are ranked 19th vs. opposing shooting guards. Gilgeous-Alexander has a great shot at exceeding his fantasy value.
SF/PF P.J. Tucker, Houston Rockets
DraftKings: $4,500 , FanDuel: $5,000, Yahoo: $18
With Clint Capela out, Tucker should get more opportunities. Tucker averages 25 fantasy points per game. The Rockets also have one of the highest team totals on the evening.
