1 deal at every position...

Justise Winslow is coming off a great game. Can he do it again tonight?

Valentine's Day is not too far, but don't fall in love with your...

That didn't work.

Sometimes it's better to quit while you're ahead.

Let's begin.

Shane Larkin, BKN, PG ($4000)

He's been underwhelming recently, but he put up 7 points and 7 assists last game. He was also given permission to jack up 10 shots - which means more could be coming... He's volatile, but dropped 17 only a handful of games ago. There is upside here. As his confidence rises, his stock could go with it...

Terrence Ross, TOR, SG ($3800)

Terrence's up and down production is very predictable in an unpredictable way. (Wait, what?) You're always guessing with T Ross, but he dropped 14 points and 4 3PM last game - playing 28 minutes. 5/9 from the field too. The game before? He shot a perfect 5/5 from the field with 12 points. He's been really solid 3 of the last 4 games, and that could mean a breakout is emerging.... It could also mean absolutely nothing. It is Terrence Ross, after all. For such a cheap price though, I'd roll with him if you need to save money tonight...

Justise Winslow, MIA, SF ($3700)

He's got the coolest first name in the league, but I find him very enigmatic in DFS. Injuries are giving him more run recently, and he's coming off perhaps his finest game as a pro (approached a triple double with 9 points, 6 boards, 6 assists). He's teased us before though, so the other Justice is far from a guarantee... Since Miami is banged up right now, I'm gonna take a risk here tonight. If you're in need of a bargain swing, plug him in.

John Henson, MIL, PF ($3800)

Henson is really hot & cold, but you gotta plug him in when he's right. One of the best block artists in the NBA (according to advanced stats), Henson is pretty much a lock for 2 blocks on any given night. When he plays significant minutes, he has 15 points/10 boards/5 blocks potential. It's all basically about minutes with this kid. No way to know how much time/usage he'll get day to day, but upside in the power forward slot is right here...

Steven Adams, OKC, C ($4300)

One of the safest value picks tonight, Adams is coming off a 10 & 10 double double. He's a pretty good bet to double double (or approach it) every night, so if you're not in need of a huge game, Steven is pretty safe. He won't win the night for you - but he won't lose it either. That's something. If you're more conservative, Adams is a good way to save some dough tonight...

So start researching the best prices on those red fluffy teddy bears, and start working on your lamb recipe.

You only got a couple weeks to make it the night of her life.

Don't get stuck in the friend zone.

I'm only telling you this because I care.

You complete me.
