Jarrett Allen (at DEN – $4,200 on DK; $4,900 on FD): Allen maybe doesn’t always get the playing time due to DeAndre Jordan but I’m feeling him in this game because he’s mobile. His athleticism is going to hurt Jokic and Jordan doesn’t seem to have that same level anymore. He won’t hurt you much at this salary either.
Spencer Dinwiddie (at DEN – $5,700 on DK; $5,500 on FD): The loss of Caris LeVert and Kyrie Irving potentially being out means it’s going to be a lot of Dinwiddie on Thursday. We know he is big game potential and given his salary along with the circumstances, he feels like a must play against the Nuggets.
Aron Baynes (vs ATL – $5,900 on DK; $6,500 on FD): Baynes continues to turn in consistent performances for the Suns. Even if he’s not recording a triple-double, he’s also not going to hurt you at this salary. He’ll get his usual numbers and at the salary, is a safe bet for your team.
DeAndre’ Bembry (at PHX – $3,900 on DK; $4,400 on FD): The loss of Huerter means someone will have to step up. Bembry has been getting minutes for the Hawks, and even if it hasn’t always translated into increased production, the circumstances do benefit him in this one. He’s also not going to hurt you much at this salary. Look for him to step up in a big way.
Derrick Favors (vs LAC – $5,500 on DK; $6,600 on FD): Favors looks more like himself in recent games and that’s good news for fans who want to add him on their DFS team. The Clippers are on a back-to-back, so there’s a chance they have tired legs, which would certainly benefit Favors and the rest of the Pelicans.
