I'm Josh Gross and I broke into RotoCurve with my weekly PGA article, before expanding into NBA for my daily game by game breakdown discussing any inactive news, picks, etc. This season, I've started MLB as well with a weekly Saturday piece. My favorite DFS sport is NBA, and I want DFS Tennis to debut ASAP.

It’s a good night to fade Andre Drummond, as his price tops $10K. While he’s continuing to increase his levels of production with Blake Griffin joining the team, it’s simply too expensive a price to pay. He’s also trended down in recent meetings with Anthony Davis, and so I’d rather spend my cap elsewhere. Blake Griffin has remained slightly cheaper than Andre Drummond, while maintaining a 30% usage rate with the Detroit club. Tonight, he’ll avoid the matchup with AD, while seeing Nikola Mirotic, a significantly easier matchup. Three of Griffin’s last five meetings with Mirotic have gone for 1.3 DKPPM or more, and earlier this season, just a couple weeks ago went for 58 DK Points against the Pelicans.

Anthony Davis has been a different player without Cousins, as one can imagine. When you take away someone who generates 35% usage, a lot of it is going to funnel to your best player on the floor. As someone who had averaged about a 28% usage rate this season, he’s now tallied a 37% usage in the month of February, seeing increases in just about every statistical category. Detroit, despite the acquisition of Blake Griffin, continue to allow plenty of rebounds, allowing the 8th most per game over their last 10 games. There’s going to be some value in this slate, so spending up on Davis is my favorite approach.
