Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin

Donovan Mitchell tallied 42 points (15-of-20 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), three rebounds, four assists, one steal, and eight 3-pointers in Friday's 119-115 loss to the Heat, playing 43 minutes.  With Darius Garland (quad) sidelined, Mitchell shifted over to the point guard role Friday night. And he went off, with this being the third time in five games that he's scored at least 40 points. Mitchell's closing in on 1st-round value for the season in 9-cat formats, outperforming his Yahoo ADP of 25. Garland's place in the starting lineup was taken by Caris LeVert, who finished with 16 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin

Terry Rozier provided a full line on Saturday with 22 points (10-for-23 FGs), six rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in a 119-111 loss to the Jazz. Rozier had another solid game as the focal point of Charlotte's offense, and he was able to take care of the ball once again, as he didn't turn it over. He has gone three straight games without a turnover and has one turnover in his last four games, which comes after back-to-back six turnover games. Whatever message the coaching staff gave him as paid off for fantasy managers, though his subpar shooting has still limited his value. Still, the lack of turnovers has been a huge boost, and he matched it with value across the board.
