Christmas is coming, and your stocking is full of DFS deals today.
Kendall Marshall, PHI, PG $3900
I'm a risk-taker.
There, I said it.
You gotta be a little crazy to grab Kendall Marshall in DFS in his season debut, but I'm that kind of crazy.
He's one of the most volatile assets in Fantasy Basketball, but also one of the most intriguing. On a Philadelphia team where the rules of time and space do not exist, it's not insane to think Kendall could get major usage tonight. When the dude is right, double doubles shoot out of his soul like stat candy... 10 points and 10 assists tonight?
He could also play 4 minutes.
If you're feeling lucky - and you're a little crazy like me - pull the trigger on Kendall Marshall.
Terrence Ross, TOR, SG ($3700)
Another wildly volatile asset, Ross is coming off a stinker. The game before though? Try 22 points on 8/12 shooting, with 4 3PM, 6 REB & 2 STL.
You can't get to this price point without risk, and Terrence Ross is inherent risk.
But he's also capable of beastly stat lines like the one above. (I mean, this is a player who once scored 51 points in a single game!)
You're on an upside hunt in the bargain bin, and Terrence Ross' name is lighting up in the sky like diamonds...
Matt Barnes, MEM, SF ($4000)
Fresh off a crazy game-winner (check this out), Barnes' confidence is high. He'll likely get some more run tonight, and last game his stat line looked like this: 8 points, 11 rebounds, 2 3PM, 3 AST.
He's always been a streaky player throughout his career, but winning a game from half court could really get him back on track... When he gets the minutes/usage, he contributes in absolutely every category...
Cody Zeller, CHA, PF ($4000)
He wasn't great last game, but the 2 games before he was averaging 18.5 PPG.
Al Jefferson is still nowhere to be found, and Zeller is really making strides in Al's absence.
If he gets the touches, he's a scoring machine with modest big man stats. For a steal of a price, Zeller is a no-brainer for discount production.
Kelly Olynyk, BOS, C ($4200)
Olynyk is white hot right now.
Averaging over 15 PPG the last 4 games (with modest counting stats), you want to plug in this youngster before he loses his mojo...
He can also hit the 3-ball - which is a nice little bonus from your C slot.
A breakout could be emerging long term, but short term, I'm fully behind Kelly tonight.
So Santa's not due for another couple weeks, but you're still getting presents.
You're so spoiled.
You know it's true.
You're such a Kardashian.
