The Cavs-Wizards should be competitive and contains many high-quality players in the mid-tier, which can help fill in a balanced and effective lineup.
In the mid-range, Darius Garland, Evan Mobley, Lauri Markkanen and Ricky Rubio are all great options who can easily outplay their salaries while Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyle Kuzma are reasonably valued for those with more upside than risk. Additionally, Montrezl Harrell is a bargain after topping 24 DK points in eight of his last 10 games.
Injuries to Monitor
Cedi Osman (back): OUT
Dean Wade (calf): Questionable
Without Avdija and/or Holiday, Raul Neto would likely see more playing time.
Cam Reddish (wrist): Questionable
Without Bogdanovic or Hunter, Danilo Gallinari will remain a focal point off the bench while Kevin Huerter fills in the starting lineup. if Reddish is out, Delon Wright and Solomon Hill should get decent bench minutes.
Patrick Beverley (groin): OUT
Joe Harris (ankle): OUT
Jalen Suggs (thumb): OUT
Kevin Porter (thigh): Questionable
Jalen Green (hamstring): OUT
With Green gone, Garrison Mathews is expected to pick up the start. Eric Gordon has recently moved into a starting role, which means Danuel House, D.J. Augustin and Armoni Brooks would be in line for a boost off the bench if Porter is also out.
Josh Hart (knee): Questionable
Jaylen Brown (rest): OUT
Andre Iguodala (knee): OUT
Trae Young ($10,200)
Young has been playing great of late averaging 29.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 8.9 assists and 1.0 steals over the last 10 games, having topped 60 DK points in three of those. With a matchup against the 76ers, he should find himself in a competitive contest that will require 100 percent effort.
Donovan Mitchell ($8,800)
Mitchell has posted 20.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.2 steals in the last 10 contests while surpassing 40 DK in five. He's set to face a Celtics side tonight without Jaylen Brown.
Jayson Tatum ($10,100)
The Celtics will have it tough in Utah, but Tatum can be expected to carry most of the offensive load minus Jaylen Brown in the lineup. He's averaging 25.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.0 steals from the last 10 games and has gone over 40 DK points in seven - including four 50-plus efforts.
Domantas Sabonis ($9,600)
Sabonis and the Pacers host the Heat, who will be without their most formidable frontcourt presence in Bam Adebayo. The Heat don't carry much frontcourt depth and Sabonis should have an advantage against smaller defenders.
Joel Embiid ($10,500)
Embiid has posted major DK-point totals in three games since returning from a two-week absence. In his first game back, he totaled 70.5 and followed that up with 44.3 and 56.5. The Sixers will be in tough against the Hawks, but Embiid should be able to once again produce big numbers.
Luka Doncic ($11,800)
Doncic and the Mavs will be hosting the Pelicans in the second of a home-and-home series. Dallas came up with a convincing win in the opener with Doncic leading the way with 28 points, four rebounds, 14 assists and a steal across 27 minutes. He should find a similar opportunity to produce especially with a significant size advantage against the Pelicans' backcourt. If Kristaps Porzingis (questionable) is sidelined, then it will lead to more opportunties for the Slovenian star.
Dewayne Dedmon ($4,800)
Dedmon is primed to pick up another start in place of the injured Bam Adebayo. Dedmon came up big in the Heat's most recent contest with 11 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 31 minutes.
Marcus Morris ($4,700)
After missing a month, Morris has been working his way back into rhythm and averaging 7.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game over his last five appearances.
Gary Harris ($4,000)
Harris is expected to log another start in the absence of Jalen Suggs, and should be able to record solid stats against the Rockets' below-average defense.
Shake Milton ($4,100)
Milton is a key figure coming off the bench for the 76ers and has averaged 12.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists, in 26 minutes across his last 10. The Hawks are shorthanded in the backcourt, which should allow Milton more advantageous matchups.
Patty Mills ($4,800)
With Joe Harris still out, Mills will retain his starting role and have plenty of opportunity to turn in solid value having averaged 14.5 points and 2.2 assists in 31 minutes from the last 10 games while surpassing 25 DK points five times.
