Toronto Raptors DFS Spin
Pascal Siakam accounted for 29 points (9-of-19 FGs, 10-of-13 FTs), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks, and one 3-pointer in Saturday's 95-91 win over the Pistons. Siakam, who played 35 minutes, appeared to be the only Raptor to receive the early wakeup call Saturday afternoon in Detroit. He shot 5-of-8 from the field in the first quarter, with the other Raptors combining to go 3-of-14. Siakam ultimately finished with 29 points and a full line, with his free throws with 2.8 seconds remaining sealing the win. While still off of his Yahoo ADP of 29, Siakam's recent play has pushed him back into the top 50 in 9-cat, per-game value. The Raptors will play three games in Week 19, beginning Tuesday night against the Bulls.
Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Darius Garland logged 31 minutes in Friday's 136-119 loss to the Hawks, putting up 33 points (11-of-19 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), two assists, two steals, and four 3-pointers. Garland had a good night scoring-wise, but the assists were lacking, and Donovan Mitchell's off night did the Cavs no favors in Atlanta. Mitchell shot 6-of-17 from the field, finishing with 19 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes. By comparison, Hawks guards Trae Young and Dejounte Murray combined to score 59 points on 19-of-37 shooting. Garland, who's offering 4th-round, per-game value in 9-cat formats, has now scored 30 points or more in eight games this season, one more for his total during the 2021-22 campaign.
