Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers ($11,100) vs. Lakers
Lillard is averaging 37.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists through 10 games, including seven with more than 55 DK points and a high of 89.3. He has a great chance to keep rolling against the Lakers, who give up the league's second-most points per game to point guards. He also finished with 49 DK points in his previous meeting with the Lakers.
Donovan Mitchell, Cavaliers ($8,700) vs. Spurs
Mitchell produced 58.5 DK points in the last game and is averaging 21.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.0 steals over five appearances. He has a great chance to excel against the Spurs, who give up the league's sixth-most points per game to shooting guards and allow opponents to shoot a league-high 50.9 percent from the field.
DeMar DeRozan, Bulls ($8,300) vs. Magic
DeRozan is coming off a couple of quieter outings, but he is averaging 23.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists in his last 10 appearances, with a high of 49 DK points on two occasions. He also generated 49.5 DK points in his last meeting with the Magic and should excel again, as they give up the league's fifth-most free-throw attempts per game.
Jimmy Butler, Heat ($8,500) vs. Nuggets
Butler is averaging 21.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.6 steals across five games, including three with at least 42 DK points and a high of 49. He recorded 44 DK points in his last encounter with the Nuggets, and he should prosper again as they allow opponents to shoot an average of 48.1 percent from the field and also give up an average of 14.3 turnovers per game.
Kristaps Porzingis, Wizards ($9,900) at Warriors
Porzingis has gone over 50 DK points in four of six outings, including a high of 57.8, while averaging 26.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 blocks per game. He must step up in the absence of Kyle Kuzma, and he has a good chance to shine against the Warriors, who give up the league's ninth-most three-pointers per game and 10th-most points per game to opposing centers. Porzingis also totaled 49.8 DK points in his previous meeting with the Warriors.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Thunder ($10,700) vs. Pelicans
Gilgeous-Alexander continues to shine, averaging 33.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 steals through 10 games, including seven with more than 50 DK points and a high of 66. He faces an advantageous matchup against the shorthanded Pelicans, who allow opponents to shoot an average of 47.5 percent from the field and also give up an average of 14.3 turnovers per game.
Malaki Branham, Spurs ($4,800) at Cavaliers
Branham is averaging 16.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists through five consecutive starts, with a high of 40.8 DK points in the game before last. He faces a hefty challenge against the Cavs' backcourt, but he should have room to get his shot off from long range as they allow opponents to shoot an average of 36.4 percent from deep.
Bennedict Mathurin, Pacers ($4,600) vs. Jazz
Mathurin continues to impress, averaging 16.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 10 games, including six with more than 25 DK points and a high of 43.5. He has a good chance to keep the momentum going against the Jazz, who allow opponents to shoot an average of 48.0 percent from the field.
Caleb Martin, Heat ($4,700) vs. Nuggets
Martin continues to play well, averaging 9.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists through 10 games, including seven with more than 20 DK points and a high of 39.8. He has to step up against the Nuggets' frontcourt but should also find room to get his offense going, as they allow opposing small forwards to shoot an average of 46.5 percent from the field.
Cameron Johnson, Nets ($4,900) at Knicks
Johnson recorded 12 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals in his Nets debut. He faces a tough matchup against the Knicks' frontcourt, but he should find a chance to get his shot going from long range as the Knicks give up an average of 13.0 three-pointers per game.
Jarred Vanderbilt, Lakers ($4,200) at Trail Blazers
Vanderbilt finished with 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and a steal for a total of 30 DK points in his Lakers debut. He has a good opportunity to thrive against the Trail Blazers, who are shorthanded in the frontcourt.
