If you played the FTA+ Yahoo opto last night, you crushed! I made a last minute swap taking out Smart/Aminu for Bazemore/Taj and it crushed my line up alongside Doug McNoBuckets. Hopefully today we can get back to our winnings ways. We have a smaller 6 game slate but it is filled with some quality plays in my opinion. I really want exposure to the HOU/MIN game, as Zach LaVine is out and HOU is on a b2b. Last time these teams played the game stayed close and I expect that to happen again tonight. Nemanja Bjelica will be a must play for me if he starts. Karl-Anthony Towns is my favorite play of the day.

Karl-Anthony Towns | Yahoo NBA DFS 1/11
Karl-Anthony Towns ($43) – Anyone who regularly reads my articles knows that I love KAT. Anytime Karl is at home, in a good matchup, I target him. He averages 8 more fpts at home and tonight he faces the Rockets who are on a back end of a B2B on the road. The spread is only -3.5 and the last time these teams met in MIN, Karl finished with 63 Yahoo fpts. He is my favorite stud on this slate, and I think he is a better point per dollar play than Harden (meaning if you’re trying to get both in your lineup and can’t, go down on Harden, not Karl!).
Other options: Joel Embiid, Mason Plumlee, Steven Adams, Enes Kanter, Montrezl Harrell, Nerlens Noel.
