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.

*With only two games on slate for Tuesday’s schedule, only one stud and one value option will be suggested.

POINT GUARD TARGETS

Studs

  • Brandon Knight vs. PHO ($7,500) – Knight’s shot has been fairly decent over his last six games played, as he’s gone 43-for-94 (.457 FG%) while shooting 13-33 (.394) from 3-point land to give him a 32.2 FPPG average. Knight draws the Suns, who haven’t been able to defend point guards very well this season, so we should see another 30-plus fantasy point performance from Knight, with the potential for a 40-point night. Knight’s value gets boosted with his 1.8 steals per game average over his last six played, so if you’re looking for an undervalued, underrated play – here you go.

 

Values

  • Patty Mills vs. DET ($3,400) – Any dude that is comfortable enough to go by “Patty” is okay in my book, but getting 20-25 fantasy points for 3.4K is quite nice – that’s what I’m expecting from Mills if Tony Parker doesn’t play again due to his hamstring woes. We all know Cory Joseph is the one taking lead and getting the bulk of the points, but Mills is a “diggin’ deep” play. And, with only two teams to choose from to fill your DFS lineup you’re going to need to mine for values.

SHOOTING GUARD TARGETS

Studs

  • Eric Bledsoe @ MIL ($9,300) – Bledsoe is far and away the best shooting guard option on Tuesday, although the price is quite steep. Still, he’s worth it considering his 42.4 FPPG average over his last six games and that he’s been lights-out with his shot. Bledsoe is a great build-around option on Tuesday, so go ahead… build around him.

 

Values

  • Danny Green vs. DET  ($5,400) – On paper, Green and fellow teammate Manu Ginobili look like fantastic options for the price; however, their fantasy point per game averages are misleading do to their incredible inconsistencies. Green, for instance, hangs around the low-20’s most nights when it comes to fantasy points, but explodes for a 40 or 50 point night now and then, which skews his numbers. The 24th OPRK matchup for Green is good enough, and the price tag is not bad, so I’d give him a whirl over Ginobili or others like Gerald Green.

SMALL FORWARD TARGETS

Studs

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. PHO ($6,800) – There aren’t any true stud options at small forward, so Antetokounmpo is the best I see to choose from. Be careful, though, as he’s had some pretty bad games in 2014. On these type of game days/nights, you’re so limited that your lineup is almost always chancy in certain areas.

 

Values

  • P.J. Tucker @ MIL ($4,600) – Options are slim, although Tucker is one of the more consistent plays at this price range. Don’t expect more than 20 fantasy points, but I’m okay with that considering. Hope that Tucker continues with his rebounding and steals, and pray for a great night from the field with his shot.

POWER FORWARD TARGETS

Studs

  • Tim Duncan vs. DET ($9,100) – Duncan has shied away from his 60-point dominant days of just a few weeks ago, but you’re not going to find a better option at power forward on Tuesday… of course assuming he’s not rested facing the Pistons. Duncan’s salary usually flirts around the 9K mark, which is fair for the 39.7 FPPG production he gives.

 

Values

  • Boris Diaw vs. DET ($4,300) – Diaw gives DFS owners all-around production with his rebounding, assists and points scored, but is more of a gut play for me on Tuesday. His minutes played have been suffering of late, although except for his matchup against Memphis on 12/30, Diaw’s numbers have been fairly consistent around the 20-point FPPG mark.

CENTER TARGETS

Studs

  • Andre Drummond @ SA ($9,500) – Drummond is a rebounding machine, averaging almost 13 per game this season and almost 16 per game over his last five games played. I consider Drummond a pretty good value at 9.5K and don’t expect his salary to stay below the 10K mark for too much longer. Since Josh Smith was released off the Pistons roster, Drummond’s rebounding numbers have jumped significantly.

 

Values

  • Zaza Pachulia vs. PHO ($6,000) – Pachulia’s minutes and production has jumped up since he’s taken over the starting center job for the Bucks. Pachulia has only started two games, but has averaged 40 points per game while snagging two double-double’s in a row.

 

Good luck on Tuesday! Catch me on Twitter @TheRolyPolyBoy where I may sometimes answer your questions, but only if I really, really feel like it.
