low five:

Point Guard: Shaun Livingston, BKN ($3,800): Livingston has been getting about 25 minutes per game over his last four, while producing in the 20 FP range most nights.  With a value threshold of 19 FPs, that sort of production would be a welcome addition to any fantasy roster tonight for the price.  Especially given the roster flexibility it will allow you.

Shooting Guard: Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL ($4,200): Call this more of a hunch than anything, but I’m expecting that Antetokounmpo get 20-25 FPs tonight in a similar number of minutes,against a Pelicans squad that he matches up well against.
Also consider, Chris Douglas-Roberts, CHA ($3,700) who will be starting tonight and performed well in his last start (24.9 FPs)

Small Forward: Wilson Chandler, DEN ($5,600): Chandler has been averaging over 30 FPs in his three contests, and should against produce in that 25-30 FP range again tonight vs. a Los Angeles Lakers’ squad that has given up the 2nd most points to opposing SFs over the past couple of weeks.  Also consider, Jeff Adrien, MIL ($4,000) for your tourney rosters.

Power Forward: Amar’e Stoudemire, NY ($4,300): If Amar’e were to draw the start again tonight, I really like him against a Utah Jazz team that has performed poorly against the PF position recently.  In his last three starts, Amar’e has averaged over 27 FPs, value for him is just 21.5 and production in that range should be expected with a start.

Center: Kelly Olynyk, BOS ($4,200): Olynyk is surely a risky play for this evening, but I’m thinking that he gets 25-30 minutes and produces in the 20-25 FP range against a middling Brooklyn Nets frontcourt.  Also worth a look is Timofey Mozgov, DEN ($4,000), a FP/minute beast, against a horrible Lakers’ frontcourt.

Thank you and good luck tonight!!!
