Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Aaron Gordon (left rib contusion) and Zeke Nnaji (right shoulder sprain) are out for Saturday's matchup with Memphis. With both AG and Nnaji sidelined, expect Vlatko Cancar to see plenty of rum against the Grizzlies. Cancar hasn't done much to inspire confidence as a starter, so he can remain on the waiver wire outside of deeper leagues.
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Jaren Jackson Jr. accounted for 18 points (5-of-16 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, four blocks, and one 3-pointer in Thursday's 110-105 loss to the 76ers. Jackson didn't have the best night shooting the basketball, but that can be said for any Grizzlies starter not named Desmond Bane. JJJ is shooting nearly 50% from the field and 78.4% from the foul line for the season, so the occasional off night isn't a concern. He continues to produce in the shot block category, averaging more than three per game. As long as Jackson avoids early foul trouble, he's a safe bet to be an elite fantasy player. Trip is a top-10 player in 9-cat formats and top-15 in 8-cat.
