SG/SF: Josh Richardson: (4,900) The Heat are going to be very short-handed tonight against The Celtics with Justice Winslow, Tyler Johnson, and Dion Waiters all out. Richardson is one of the only healthy ball handling guards on this team and is going to have to play a ton of minutes tonight. He only averages 28 minutes a game this season, but should see 35+ plus minutes will all these wing players injured. It is an extremely small sample size, but this year when all three of these players have been off the court, Richardson has an extremely high usage rate of 36.6%. 

This number is obviously very dramatic, but it is safe to say that he will be one of the most heavily used players in this offense tonight. Richardson and Rodney McGruder should both play heavy minutes and are both superb values at their respective prices. Richardson has the higher ceiling and is a better overall player, but I have no issue locking both into my lineups. Also The Heat may be without PG Goran Dragic (Elbow) and center Hassan Whiteside (Knee) who are both currently listed as questionable. I think both players will play, but it is a situation to follow all night because if either of these players are out, there will be even more value plays to attack on this Heat roster.

PF/C: Kelly Olynyk: (3,700) The Celtics will be without starting center Al Horford tonight who is away from the team after the birth of his second child. In the other nine games Horford missed this season, Olynyk started in five of those games alongside Amir Johnson, and he should reenter the starting lineup tonight against The Heat. In the five games’ he started for the concussed Horford, Olynyk averaged a solid 20.4 DraftKings points in 27 minutes a game. He was very effective in his first two starts, scoring 34.25 DraftKings points vs The Knicks and 31 DraftKings points vs The Pacers.

Tonight he should play 25-30 minutes in a nice matchup against The Heat who rank 24th against centers this season. He is a very streaky player who could easily score you 10 DraftKings points or 40 DraftKings points, depending how well he is shooting the ball. But either way, I think he is worth the risk tonight at his super cheap $3,700 price tag that has dropped $1,500 since returning to a reserve role with Horford back. Even though his game log has been all over the place this season, Olynyk should easily return value at this cheap price and is value that can’t be ignored on Monday night. Update: Reports are that Tyler Zeller not Olynyk is expected to start in place of Horford. Zeller becomes the safer play at $3,000, with Olynyk more of a GPP play. 

PG: Derrick Rose: (6,000) Saturday night Rose had one of his best games as a Knick, posting a near triple double of 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and two steals in 34 minutes vs The Hornets. The veteran who is known for his injury problems hasn’t been limited at all the past two games, playing 38 minutes on Friday and 34 minutes on Saturday. Most of the time a player like Rose is usually limited or rested for one night of a back to back set.

But the high minutes in both games shows us this that The Knicks coaching staff is pleased with his play and are confident that he can remain healthy under this type of workload. Tonight Rose is in a great spot to keep producing great fantasy numbers playing against The Thunder who rank 23rd against PGs, and play at 6th fastest pace in the league. I don’t think he is a great cash game target tonight with a ton of value opening up, but I think he is a great GPP play, that should be lower owned.

Also Consdier: Rodney McGruder, Amir Johnson, Jae Crowder (no more minute restriction), James Johnson, Nik Stauskas (Bayless is out), Richaun Holmes, Sergio Rodriguez (Bayless is out), Willie Reed (if Whiteside is out), Troy Williams, DeMarre Carroll, and Tony Allen.
