The Core Four
Chris Paul and Blake Griffin– Not sure how you play anyone else tonight. Los Angeles has lost three straight and get the tempo of a Denver road game.
Jimmy Butler– Shooting Guard is a complete waste of time so you might as well take someone who is playing really well with a good matchup against McCollum.
Nikola Jokic– In order to afford all three of the above listed players you have to play Jokic today. He will get another start and should have a solid game for his price.
Darrell Arthur– This play is based solely on Faried being out.
Jared Sullinger– In my opinion he is the only person you can play besides Arthur tonight. Atlanta will be focused on stopping Thomas so I can see the defense giving up the open jump shots to Sullinger.
Thabo Sefolosha– With Bazemore missing the game tonight Sefolosha will get the solid playing time bump in the starting lineup.
Jae Crowder– See Michael McClure
Paul George– If you can afford George (you should with all these cheap plays I am posting) you might as well pay up for him. George is playing against a below average Washington defense who he should torch with relative ease.
Jordan Clarkson– He might be a little risky because of the blowout, but realistically he will get you 20 fantasy points so you might as well play him.
Courtney Lee, Gary Harris, Allen Crabbe, Will Barton– You can pick any of these guys as your second shooting guard. Realistically this is the position you should not worry about much and spend the least amount of money on.
Al-Farouq Aminu– It seems like he will be guarded tough tonight by Snell and will not see tons of open looks.
Damian Lillard– He is a bit expensive for this matchup with Rose.
Isaiah Thomas– Atlanta will try and take Thomas away so I imagine him having a off game.
