I’ll be scratching my head for a while about yesterday’s performance. Derrick Favors had 18 fantasy points at halftime, and managed to finish with just 21? Andre Drummond was in foul trouble all night, which led to the return of the Boban. Well tonight we need to shake off those outliers and get ready for King James. Both Kyrie (doubtful) and Kevin Love (questionable) could miss the game, but as long as one of them is out, we are locking in Lebron. The Brooklyn Nets are still awful defensively, and unless there is a massive blowout with James sitting the 4th we should see a 60+ pt performance.

King James – Cleveland Cavaliers ($10500)
Earlier this season, in a blowout, King James played 27.2 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets. In those limited minutes he was able to drop 39.8 fantasy points! That works out to 1.46 FPPM. If he plays 36 minutes tonight that works out to 52.67 fantasy points. Which is good enough, until you consider the increased usage from Kyrie and possibly Love being out. This game will be played in Brooklyn which helps lessen the risk of blowout, and the Nets allow the most FPPG to small forwards this season. Lebron should have his way with Brooklyn tonight, and we can expect ownership to eclipse 40% in cash this evening.
Update: Kyrie and Love are both considered probable. If they do play, Lebron is still decent, but no longer the cash lock. Check in to chat later for those live updates.
Other Options: Jabari Parker, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Trevor Ariza
