It’s Good Friday!  And I hope it’s a good Friday for all your DFS endeavors.  We have a solid, though maybe light, nine game schedule for this Friday night.  Five of the nine feature a spread of 8.5+ so beware of the blowout tonight.  If you have not seen, the Mavs are sitting anyone with a pulse so it could be the night to pull the trigger on some money-saving Mavs like Barea and Powell.  Let’s get to it!

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers.

Highly Touted

  • Jon Leuer (10x) – He has back-to-back double-double outings in which he’s averaged 17.5ppg and 13.5rpg.


  • Paul Millsap (6x) – Millsap has had big numbers in two games against the Bucks this year averaging 25ppg and 10.5rpg.
  • James Harden (6x) – He’s had a double-double in three of the last four and is posting 27.4ppg and 11.2apg in the last five.

  • John Wall (5x) – Wall has posted 21.8ppg, 12apg and 6.2rpg in the last five.
