Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Nikola Jokic was dominant in Saturday's 119-105 win over the Hornets, tallying 30 points (11-of-22 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), 16 rebounds, 10 assists, and two blocked shots in 34 minutes. Jokic is up to 20 triple-doubles on the season, and this was just the ninth time this season in which he hasn't attempted a 3-pointer. And there wasn't much reason to, as the Hornets struggled to keep Jokic from getting to his preferred spots inside the arc. And this was the week in which the Joker moved back into the top spot in 9-cat, per-game value, surpassing Anthony Davis. Good luck trying to knock Jokic from that perch before the end of the fantasy season. Denver is one of the few teams that will play five games during the "supersized" Week 18, which will run two weeks in fantasy leagues thanks to the All-Star break.
Miami Heat DFS Spin
Due to a sprained right ankle, Victor Oladipo will remain sidelined for Monday's game against the Nuggets. Oladipo has missed Miami's last five games, and Monday will make six due to the sprained ankle. This will free up additional minutes for Max Strus, who accounted for 12 points and seven assists in 39 minutes off the bench Saturday night. He's only worth adding if Tyler Herro (knee; questionable) is also ruled out for Monday's game.
