SG: Tony Allen: (4,200) Allen should be very busy tonight with PG Mike Conley (back), SF Vince Carter (hip), SF Chandler Parsons (knee), and SG James Ennis (calf) all ruled out. The Grizzlies will only have nine healthy players tonight vs The Raptors, and Allen should play 35+ minutes barring a blowout. He is the most experienced wing player that The Grizzlies have left, and this season Allen has seen his usage rate increase 2.2% to a solid 21.2% with all these players off the court.
Allen plays a reserve role off the bench when this team is healthy, but should start tonight at SF vs The Raptors who are the 3rd worst team defending SFs this season. As I said above, he should easily top 30 minutes tonight, and in the only other two games he has played 30+ minutes, he scored 26.5 DK points vs The Hornets, and 28 DK points vs The Heat. Allen isn’t a good scorer, but is a player who can fill up stat sheet, especially on the defensive end. He has a solid floor of around 20 DK points with upside depending on how the game plays out. Allen is an exceptional bargain at $4,200, and is my preferred play at SG on Wednesday night.
PG: Dennis Schroder: (5,900) Schroder is slowly starting to see the minutes I expected this season with PG Jeff Teague out of the picture. In his last two games, he has played 30 + minutes. During these games he scored 31 DK points vs The Lakers this past Saturday and 38.25 DK points vs The Warriors on Monday. He was very aggressive in these two games, posting a team high usage rate of 29.2%, which is nice bump from his season average of 26.3%.
Tonight The Hawks play The Suns who are 25th in defending PGs and play at the second fastest pace in the league so far this season. The Hawks have a Vegas team total of 106.75 points and are favored by 5.5 points in this game. Schroder should see 30+ minutes again tonight and has huge upside in this fast paced matchup with The Suns.
PG/SG: Rodney Stuckey: (3,900) Tonight The Pacers take on The Blazers in the highest game total of the night at 215 points. After missing the beginning of the season with a hamstring injury, Stuckey has started to look like himself the last week. With both SF Paul George and SG C.J. Miles out, Stuckey has stepped up and scored 31 DK points, and 21.25 DK points in his last two games.
His minutes were restricted to start the season, but he has played over 20 minutes in three of his last four games. In this span he is taking just over nine shots a game and has 26% usage rate off the bench. With both George and Miles remaining out tonight, Stuckey should play 20-25 minutes again and score 20+ DK points in this high scoring game. I don’t think he will be on many DFS players radars tonight. He is a great way to get exposure to the highest total of the night at a very cheap price.
Also Consider: Jae Crowder, Sergio Rodriguez , Mike Muscala (if Paul Milsap is out), Enes Kanter, Andrew Harrison/Wade Baldwin, Jamal Murray, Al Jefferson, Josh Richardson (if Tyler Johnson is out), James Johnson, Jarell Martin, Tobias Harris, and Mason Plumlee.
