Wow. Last night was… something. The Denver Nuggets absolutely destroyed the Warriors in Denver with basically a 6 man rotation! And somehow.. the Warriors just laid down and took it despite the Nuggets ranking as one of the worst defense in the league. To say that Curry and Durant’s performances were disappointing would be putting it mildly, but at least the recommended Denver plays paid off in a big way as Jokic dropped a monster triple double for 67 points and Barton poured in 51 fantasy points of his own. Oh, and apparently the Hernangomez family as some talent as Juancho posted a 50-burger as well! Tonight our attention turns to the new kid on Zubac … Ivica Zubac from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Ivica Zubac – Los Angeles Lakers ($3800) vs Kings
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Three game slates = GPP only for me. I see no reason to dive into cash games with most players being at least 30% owned, and one wrong move spelling doom for your night. The reason I point this out, is Zubac is my favorite GPP play of the evening. The future is now for the Lakers as they have moved Mozgov to the bench to help stir the gatorade, starting Tarik Black and having Zubac play 20+ minutes per game off the bench. With Demarcus Cousins coming in tonight, Tarik or Randle should be in early foul trouble which should help solidify Zubac’s 20+ minute role this evening. Over his past 3 games Zubac has averaged 20 minutes and 22.75 fantasy points. He is strictly a GPP play however due to his floor, as he posted just 13 fantasy points against the Pistons, but he has tremendous upside as evidenced by his 28.75 against the Knicks and 26.5 against Milwaukee. I’ll likely have at least 75% exposure to Zubac tonight as he could return 8x value or better to help take down a GPP in a crowded field.
Other Options: Lucas Nogueira, Jonas Valanciunas, Karl-Anthony Towns
Zubac is a high risk high reward play tonight. If you have any questions or comments about my picks be sure to find me in FTA+ live chat leading up to tip off. Thanks for reading and good luck with your Draftkings daily DFS NBA lineups tonight!
