Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

Fred VanVleet provided 25 points (9-of-16 FG, 6-of-11 3-Pointers), 10 assists, four rebounds, three steals and two blocks in Saturday’s win over the Wizards. After missing three straight, FVV returned to the Raptors’ lineup a bit rusty to say the least. He totaled just 17 points and three triples on 6-of-28 shooting over his last two games prior to Saturday but roared back with an efficient outing in the victory. He shot better than 50% from the floor in this one and even delivered the go-ahead three-pointer in overtime with just over a minute to play. In addition to the improved shooting, Toronto’s star guard posted just his second double-double since February 1 and accounted for his most stocks since January 28. He’ll look to keep it rolling Monday when the Raptors travel to Denver for a mile-high matchup with the Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets DFS Spin

Nikola Jokic put up 18 points (7-of-10 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), 18 rebounds, 10 assists, and one blocked shot in Friday's 113-97 win over the Grizzlies, playing 35 minutes. Jokic recorded his 25th triple-double of the season Friday night, and the Nuggets are now 25-0 in those games. He's firmly entrenched atop the fantasy rankings in 8- and 9-cat formats and is on track to become the first center to average a triple-double for a full season. The only negative for Jokic and fantasy managers is that this was a two-game week for the Nuggets. Denver will play four games in weeks 20 and 21, which is good news for those who will begin fantasy playoff play during that stretch.
