Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin

Jonas Valanciunas scored 13 points on 2-of-6 shooting (8-of-10 from the line) on Saturday, adding 12 rebounds, one 3-pointer, four assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers across 29 minutes. JV struggled to get his shot to drop tonight, but he still found a way to be effective by getting easy buckets at the charity stripe. He’s opened the year with back-to-back double-doubles, and he should be a bit more involved in the offense while Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) is watching from the sidelines. Brandon Clarke didn't do much in 20 minutes off the bench, scoring four points on 2-of-8 shooting to go with three rebounds and one assist, and it's disappointing he hasn't taken advantage of JJJ's absence thus far.

Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin

Kevin Durant finished Sunday's game shooting 9-of-15 from the field, hitting five 3-pointers for 29 points in 36 minutes. Beyond the scoring, it was a relatively light stat line for KD with three rebounds and four assists. This was the first half of a back-to-back set for Brooklyn, and coach Steve Nash said the team "will decide [Monday] morning" whether Durant will play vs. Memphis. Presumably it depends on how Durant feels when he wakes up, but it's still encouraging that both ends of a back-to-back is even a possibility. He's looked terrific in his return from Achilles surgery, and everyone who drafted him has to be pleased with the early returns. Just keep an eye on the injury report before committing to him in DFS or roto lineups with games-played limits.
