Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Chris Paul shot 3-of-8 from the field and 2-of-2 from the foul line in Sunday’s win over the Rockets, scoring eight points with five rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 27 minutes.
For the first time in his storied NBA career, Paul came off the bench on Sunday. With Draymond Green back in action after missing nearly a month with a sprained ankle, CP3 was the odd man out among Steve Kerr’s “six starters.” While the new role may have been foreign to Paul, his presence did improve the second unit.
Warriors reserves outscored their Rockets counterparts by a 41-21 margin, with Gary Payton II (15/4/1/3/1 with three 3-pointers) and Jonathan Kuminga (9/2/1/1 with one 3-pointer) being the most productive bench options. Depending on how the Warriors handle their injury report for Monday’s game in New Orleans, Paul could be back in the starting lineup. Regardless of which role he’s asked to take on, the future Hall of Fame point guard will be a must-roster player in all fantasy formats.
New Orleans Pelicans DFS Spin
CJ McCollum played 30 minutes in Saturday’s 96-87 win over the Knicks, tallying 12 points (4-of-11 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, seven assists, four steals, and two 3-pointers.
McCollum didn’t have his best night shooting the basketball, but the steals production and assists should please those who have him rostered. Last season he averaged 0.9 steals per game, matching his career number, recording three in four of the 75 games he played last season. Through two games this season, McCollum already has six. If he can contribute at least one steal per night, that would give his fantasy value a slight boost when combined with McCollum’s usual offensive production.
