Cleveland Cavs DFS Notes
Jarrett Allen hit 6-of-6 shots and 2-of-2 free throws for 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Monday’s 114-107 win over his former team, the Cavaliers. He didn’t exactly extract revenge with a monster fantasy line but it was more than serviceable and he helped his team get their fifth straight win. Allen’s having a fun season and is a Top 30 fantasy player thus far.
Chicago Bulls DFS Notes
Lonzo Ball (left knee) is ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Cavaliers. As expected, Ball will be sidelined for a third straight game, while the injury is not expected to keep him out long term, his absence came at the worst time for the Bulls, as Zach LaVine (knee) is out for an extended period. So, for the time being, Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White should remain in the starting lineup and are must adds via the waiver wire, as they are both rostered in less than 52% of Yahoo Leagues.
