New York Knicks DFS Spin

Immanuel Quickley was impressive yet again on Sunday, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, three assists and a block in 27 minutes off the bench. After the game, Clippers coach Ty Lue said he had heard great things about Quickley and his work ethic from the Knicks coaching staff. He added that the rookie stayed on the court after his pregame warmup to learn by watching Kawhi Leonard go through his routine. Quickley is getting recognized and rightfully so. He made 9-of-16 shots with two triples and has 50 points in his last two games and 87 points in his last four. The guard has been picked up in 12% of leagues in the past week and is a must-have player in standard and deep leagues with the way he's playing right now.

Chicago Bulls DFS Spin

Zach LaVine accounted for 26 points (9-of-12 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 35 minutes Saturday vs. Portland. LaVine, who attempted just six shots in the first three quarters, made a couple big shots during the fourth to put Chicago in position to get the win. But Damian Lillard hit the biggest shot, with his 3-pointer giving the Blazers the one-point victory. Outside of the result, the only negative for LaVine was the turnover count as he was responsible for six of the Bulls’ 15 miscues. It’s worth noting that, even with the high turnover counts, he has been a top-10 player in 9-cat formats over the last week.
