Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to a beast of a slate. With 12 games on the docket, limiting the player pool down to eight players on a roster is difficult (to say the least), but not impossible (especially due to some of the news that came out this morning). A few games can be thrown out, and a few can be targeted as contrarian stacks, and this article features a combination of chalk and a secondary game stack the public may not be on. Hopefully, these plays lead us to the #buckies. Without further ado, let’s get to work…

Holy crap, the total in this game has skyrocketed since the open. The over/under for tonight’s tilt between the Lakers and Pelicans opened at 224-points and has since moved all the way up to 231.5. If this game is going to live up to the billing, the Pelicans are going to get a monstrous outing from Anthony Davis, who has topped 60 fantasy points in back-to-back games, and he has averaged 41.5 points (PTS) in those two contests. Now, he will square off against a Lakers team that allows the second most points in the paint and one that will rely on the defense of Brook Lopez to slow Davis down. Good luck with that. In Davis’ last two meetings against the Lakers without DeMarcus Cousins, he has averaged 37.5 points per game (PPG), 12.0 rebounds per game (RPG), 2.0 steals per game (SPG), 2.0 blocks per game) and 64.8 fantasy points per game (FPPG) over 38.1 minutes per game (MPG). With this game expected to be the highest-scoring of the night, expect a repeat performance from one of the game’s most dominant big men.
