Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Jrue Holiday logged 36 minutes in Saturday's 133-130 loss to the 76ers, scoring 26 points (9-of-13 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), four rebounds, 13 assists, and five 3-pointers. Holiday was highly efficient Saturday night, shooting well over 50% from the field while committing just one turnover. And he's been Milwaukee's best fantasy performer recently, providing top 20 per-game value in 9-cat formats over the last two weeks. And with the Bucks taking a methodical approach in working Khris Middleton back into the rotation, Holiday has been asked to shoulder more of the scoring load while also running the team. And that approach is why Holiday has managed to outperform his Yahoo ADP of 42.
Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Kyle Kuzma banged knees with another player during Saturday's loss to the Raptors and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucks. Kuzma was seen limping while leaving the locker room after Saturday's defeat, a game in which he played 42 minutes. The injury occurred during the first half, and as a result, there's no guarantee he'll be available Sunday night. In addition to Kumza, the Wizards saw Daniel Gafford suffer a sprained ankle. He exited with 8:09 remaining in regulation and did not return.
