Happy Friday everyone and we should all be feeling good after the LeBron James and Davis Bertans fades last night! #Buckies. Anyways, Friday’s slate is shaping up to be a fun one, and the night cap looks like it is going to be a chalky game stack. However, the status of Gary Harris has opened up some ways to differentiate, and there are still plays worth using in the late game. Use the core today and all should be well in the world! Without further ado, let’s get to work…

Welcome to Dragan Bender night in daily fantasy basketball as he clearly stands out as the best value play of the evening. If making 100 lineups tonight, Bender should be in 100 of them, as the Suns will be without both Marquese Chriss and Josh Jackson, so the minutes should be aplenty for the second consecutive game. On Sunday, Chriss left with a hip issue, which led to Bender starting the second half and playing a whopping 39 minutes. In those minutes, Bender scored a career-high 20 points (PTS) to go along with six rebounds (REB), four assists (AST) and a steal (STL) en route to 43.50 fantasy points. Now, the team will take on the Rockets at home, and they are surprisingly only listed as 7.0-point underdogs. On paper, the Rockets rate as a solid defensive team against opposing frontcourts, but Ryan Anderson is the weak link of the bunch. Luckily for Bender, Anderson will draw the start against him, so it would not be surprising for him to begin each half with a bang. At just $4,300, Bender is as close to a must-play as there is on this slate.
