Toronto Raptors DFS Spin
Fred VanVleet accounted for 24 points (9-of-19 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers in Monday's 114-106 loss to the Suns, playing 39 minutes. Since going on a three-game run of at least 25 points, VanVleet's scoring output has been like a roller coaster. The good news is that the field goal percentage has been solid outside of his 4-of-13 effort in Saturday's win over the Blazers. And the improvement in that category has enhanced VanVleet's fantasy value. Shooting 47.7% from the field and 96.2% from the foul line, he's providing top-10 value over the last two weeks. Mr. Bet on Yourself continuing to shoot at that level will go a long way toward improving his fantasy value and possibly keeping the Raptors brass from breaking up the team's nucleus at the trade deadline.
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Lauri Markkanen shot 11-of-20 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in Saturday's 108-100 win over the Mavericks, scoring 29 points with five rebounds, one steal, one block, and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes. Markkanen continues to make his case for an invitation to next month's All-Star Game in Salt Lake City, and at this point, it would be a shock if he weren't playing on his home court on February 19. He's now providing top 15 value in 9-cat formats, well above his Yahoo ADP of 93. We're past the point where fantasy managers should consider selling high; Markkanen's at the point where having him rostered could be the difference between winning and league and coming up short. He was the only Jazz player to score at least 20 points Saturday, with Malik Beasley finishing with 19 to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and five 3-pointers in 28 minutes off the bench.
