Phoenix Suns DFS Notes

Deandre Ayton scored 23 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to go with two assists, one steal, and no turnovers as the Suns beat the Lakers 140-111 on Sunday night. Ayton was extremely efficient on Sunday as he went 11-of-14 from the floor and made his only free throw attempt. The bad news is that he has now gone five-straight games without a block. He did snag a steal, which ends a streak of three games where he didn’t tally a single defensive stat, so hopefully he can start to get back to impacting the game on that side of the ball as we hit the stretch of the regular season.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

Jonas Valanciunas poured in 32 points on 12-of-18 shooting (7-of-7 free throws) and grabbed 10 rebounds to go with three assists, one steal, one block, and one turnover as the Pelicans beat the Rockets 130-105 on Sunday night. The Hornets blew out the Rockets on Sunday, and Valanciunas had a huge night. This ends a four-game losing streak that came on the heels of a three-game winning streak. Valanciunas has now reached the 30-point plateau in two of his last three games. We don’t expect these types of nights to become routine, but his managers are certainly happy that they are coming at this time as we head towards playoff season in fantasy hoops.
