Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Brook Lopez struggled in 21 minutes on Sunday, scoring six points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, two blocks and one steal. The defensive stats salvage this line in 8-cat and 9-cat, but points-league managers are going home empty-handed. BroLo has yet to score double-digit points in three games this season, and he's also yet to grab more than four boards or hand out a single assist. You can't ask for a better trade opportunity for the unorthodox threes-and-blocks specialist.
Miami Heat DFS Spin
Jimmy Butler (ankle stiffness) is considered doubtful for Tuesday vs. the Bucks, coach Erik Spoelstra said. This isn't a big surprise after Butler sat out of the second half of Friday's game. This obviously improves the fantasy outlook for Goran Dragic and Tyler Herro in the short term, and Spoelstra indicated that Kendrick Nunn will get his chance too. "K-Nunn is a really good player," he said. "He's got a great knack for scoring and putting the ball in the basket."
