Guards Forwards/Centers
Top-TierJames Harden (HOU) FP – 63.61 Harden played significant minutes last time around against Portland and did not disappoint. It was partially because they were missing a lot of their key members and because the game was relatively close the whole time. We shouldn’t expect 44 points, 4 boards and 17 assists but he remains a chalk play tonight  

Trae Young (ATL) FP – 47.22 It seems like Young is going to take a step forward from the stellar season that he had last year. Even after only playing 35 and 26 minutes in the last 2 games, he averages 36.5 points per game. What’s more surprising is him getting those consistent assists and also the fact that the TOs are limited. Look for him to also have a big game tonight.  
Nikola Jokic (DEN) FP – 51.45 Denver lost both their games so far but Jokic has been playing an average of 40 minutes/game. In addition, he is also shooting the ball well and raking up assists and rebounds. He was just 1 rebound short in his last game from getting another triple double. Averaging 12 assists/game is also a great sign. He is very much involved in the game and with those minutes, he should have no problem filling up the stat sheet.
Mid-TierDonovan Mitchell (UTA) FP – 39.95 He isn’t shooting the ball great this early in the season but that could change today against Utah. He’s only priced in at $7,600 and is still able to average more than 20 points and 5 assists per game.Christian Wood (HOU) FP – 44.76 Another day and Wood makes it on the list again. Just like Harden last game, Wood also had a monster game playing 44 minutes putting up a great double-double. He also shot the ball well and that should continue tonight against Denver.
Low-TierCam Reddish FP – 19.90 / Bogdan Bogdanovic (ATL) FP – 26.3 Reddish has played great minutes in both of his games. Last game he didn’t shoot the ball great and only ended up with 5 points and 3 rebounds but in the game before, he had 15 points and 6 rebounds in just 24 minutes. This was a very similar story to Bogdan as well. Both of them have played significant minutes and it could be either of their night tonight against Detroit.  Mason Plumlee (DET) FP – 37.22 Plumlee averages a solid 32.5 minutes/game in the last 2 games. We know he will be involved especially if Detroit can keep this one close. A double-double is also a possibility tonight.  

Josh Jackson (DET) FP – 29.35 Another fellow Piston makes it on the list as well. He is only priced in at $4,200 and has the potential to play mid-20 minutes. He played great against Minnesota but not so great against Cleveland. We have also seen Coach Casey complement him and he could get an extended role in this high scoring matchup against Atlanta.
