New York Knicks DFS Spin
Julius Randle hit 7-of-18 shots, 1-of-1 3-pointers, and 10-of-11 free throws for 25 points, five assists, seven rebounds, and two steals with five turnovers in a loss to the Blazers on Sunday. The No. 45 player in 9-cat leagues had another strong night featuring a pair of steals to go along with 25 points, seven rebounds, and five assists. Randle’s been awesome all year, and a big reason why the Knicks are a competitive group. His percentages have dipped recently, shooting below 39% in three of his last four games, but he's providing a ton of value rebounding and passing the ball. A year after placing outside the top-100, he appears to be a top-50 fantasy player for real.
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Donovan Mitchell shot 9-of-18 from the field and 2-of-3 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over the Warriors, posting a line of 23 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes. Two days after a rather awkward appearance on “Inside the NBA,” Mitchell put up another quality performance as the Jazz rolled to their eighth straight victory. After getting off to a slow start to begin the season, “Spida” has been a top-20 player in both 8- and 9-cat formats over the last week. He and the Jazz are rolling, and at this rate Mitchell may find himself in some MVP conversations before long.
