Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Chris Paul struggled on Wednesday and only finished with three points (1-for-6 FGs), two rebounds, three assists, one block and two turnovers in a blowout loss to Atlanta. It was just one of those nights for CP3. He has actually played really well lately, providing top ten value over the past two weeks. However, like the rest of the team, it was just an ugly performance for him. In his 27 minutes, Paul posted a -26, and he scored his fewest points in a game that he finished since December 11th. CP3 has shown his age at times this year, which isn't surprising at all. It's more impressive that he's played so well that it's shocking when the 37-year-old has a bad game.
Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Derrick White recorded a double-double on Wednesday and finished with 14 points (6-for-11 FGs), 10 rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in a blowout win over the Celtics. Due to the lopsided score, only White and Jaylen Brown played more than 30 minutes in this game. A lot of guys played well, but it didn't result in dominant stats for many guys due to limited minutes. White recorded his second double-double of the season, the first of which was with points and assists. He's been solid all season, but he has averaged 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists over his last four games, which has allowed him to post fourth round value during that stretch.
