Today’s NBA targets break down the 2-game NBA slate we have with a look at the studs, sleepers and mid-range players you want to have rotating in your lineups (since there are only two games to choose your NBA targets from on Tuesday, only one stud and one value option will be listed at each position).

POINT GUARD TARGETS

Stud

  • Ty Lawson vs. SA ($8,900) – While I list Lawson as a stud option, and rightfully so, he’s also a value in my mind considering the only other superstar stud option at point guard is Russell Westbrook. Of course Westbrook is the option you won’t if salary-pinching is not your thing, but you’re going to get very similar production out of Lawson on Tuesday at $1,300 less. Lawson is averaging 43.1 FPPG over his last four played.

Value

  • Patty Mills @ DEN ($3,500) – Mills provides some decent consistency for the price tag, especially when you consider Tony Parker isn’t getting consistent minutes or putting up consistent production of late. And, Cory Joseph can’t seem to put together a good night with the minutes he’s played recently over the last week or so, although he’s seen a drastic cut in minutes over his last two games played. Mills is the one to rely upon for consistency, and getting him for much less than you would Parker ($5,800) right now? Gimme, gimme. Parker is going to eventually get healthy and bust out again, although I don’t expect it to happen tonight.

SHOOTING GUARD TARGETS

Stud

  • Dwayne Wade vs. OKC ($8,300) – Expect Wade to play with his participation in Monday’s practice, although stranger things have happened – like Wade injuring himself further and missing weeks on end. But, I don’t expect that to happen. Wade has missed two games and left last weeks game against the Lakers after only playing 15 minutes. Before the hamstring injury, Wade was tearing it up on the court making DFS owners remember the good times. Look for a 35-plus fantasy point night out of Wade – not bad considering the options and salaries at SG on Tuesday. Blech.

Value

  • Danny Green @ DEN ($5,500) – I was tempted to slot Arron Afflalo here, and don’t be afraid to use if that’s what you’re thinking. Afflalo will give you 25-30 fantasy points for the price, although his matchup isn’t nearly as good as Green’s is. Plus, Green is giving owners solid production for a better salary. Go with Green if choosing between the two.

SMALL FORWARD TARGETS

Stud

  • Kevin Durant @ MIA ($10,700) – Wouldn’t you say that Durant is back? I mean, really, really back? He’s averaged 50.8 FPPG over his last four played and gives owners a money-in-the-bank play, albeit for a massive salary. If you think you can find enough values on Tuesday to counterbalance Durant, go for him.

Value

  • Kawhi Leonard @ DEN ($7,400) – I don’t mind paying extra dough for Leonard considering the points he gives DFS owners on average.  Do you really want Luol Deng over Leonard, even with his salary $1,400 less? Not me. I’m carving out a special spot for Leonard on my roster tonight, dumping salary at another position.

POWER FORWARD TARGETS

Stud

  • Tim Duncan @ DEN ($8,500) – Duncan stunk up the court against the Utah Jazz on Sunday, although I expect him to rebound nicely facing Denver… unless Duncan is going to sit this one out. It’s always a possibility, so make sure you’re watching the news closely. I like the salary on Duncan and see a double-double in his Tuesday future.

Value

  • J.J. Hickson vs. SA ($5,300) – Hickson is the best value to choose from regardless of position on Tuesday, considering the minutes increase he’s received since Timofey Mozgov was traded. Since his last game out, Hickson has seen a $900 jump in salary but that doesn’t mean you’re not finding value here. Over his last four games, Hickson has averaged 27.8 fantasy points – that’s quite yummy for the 5.3K salary. And, I mean, deliciously yummy.

CENTER TARGETS

Stud

  • Chris Bosh vs. OKC ($8,400) – Not that Bosh is a bad play, but he’s the only stud option you can count on at center and his personal matchup isn’t the best. The price tag isn’t bad for him at all, although inconsistencies do creep up with Bosh.

Value

  • Hassan Whiteside vs. OKC ($5,500) – Whiteside is a good value considering what he’s been putting up points-wise for owners, although he’s not dominant. The matchup is tough, as it is for Bosh above, but if you’re looking to save at center and avoid Bosh you could do much worst than Whiteside for the dollars spent.
