Phoenix Suns DFS Spin

Devin Booker (left groin injury management) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Hawks. Booker played 26 minutes without any issues Tuesday night, but the Suns are clearly not going to take any risks. His absence should mean a return to the starting lineup for Torrey Craig, with Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson shifting to the shooting guard and small forwards positions, respectively. Craig is a deep league streamer at best when given the opportunity to start.

Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin

Trae Young shot 4-of-14 from the field and 6-of-6 from the foul line in Tuesday's 116-107 loss to the Pelicans, scoring 16 points with three rebounds, 16 assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.  Young had a tough night shooting the basketball, but he was better than De'Andre Hunter. Hunter missed all nine of his shots from the field, scoring three points with four rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Having two starters shoot 4-of-23 from the field is tough to withstand, especially when Brandon Ingram and C.J. McCollum combined to score 51 points. Ranked just outside the top 50 in 9-cat formats, Young scored 20 points or more in seven straight appearances before Tuesday's rough outing.
