We have a 4 game slate of Euroleague action on DraftKings today. Yesterday we had some hits (Trey Thompkins, Edgaras Ulanovas) and some misses (James Nunnally). That's the nature of the game. Let's see if we can get it done today. Let's start with the implied totals for each team:
  • CSKA Moscow (90.75 -11.5)
  • Saski Baskonia (84.75 -4)
  • FC Barcelona (80.75 +4)
  • Unicaja (80.5 -4.5)
  • Khimki M (79.75 +11.5)
  • Olympiakos (78.5 -2.5)
  • Anadolu Efes (76 +2.5)
  • Olimpia Milano (76 +4.5)
Let's take a look at the injury report:

Khimki M vs CSKA Moscow
  • Leo Westermann G CSK (out, hip)
  • Andrey Vorontsevich F CSK (out, ankle)
  • Othello Hunter F CSK (out, hip)
  • Thomas Robinson F KHI (out, wrist)
Olympiakos vs Anadolu Efes
  • Dogus Balbay G EFS (out, back)
  • Yigitcan Saybir F EFS (out, undisclosed)
  • Georgios Printezis F OLY (out back)
  • Nikola Milutinov F OLY (out, undisclosed)
  • Dimitris Agravanis F OLY (out, knee)
FC Barcelona vs Saski Baskonia
  • Jason Granger G BKN (questionable, ankle)
  • Jordan McRae F BKN (out, undisclosed)
  • Ilimane Diop F BKN (out, undisclosed)
  • Patricio Garino F BKN (out, undisclosed)
Olimpia Milano vs Unicaja
  • Patric Young F AXM (out, knee)
Here are the players that I will be targeting based on the following price tiers:

Top Tier ($10,000 and Above)
  • Alexey Shved G - Despite being the most expensive player in the game Shved still hit 3x value a couple of days ago and was in the winning lineup. His price goes up once again. However, this time he has a tougher matchup, his team being 11 point underdogs. I'll have some shares of him but at this price and in this matchup he is not a must play.
  • Nando De Colo G - I like De Colo over Shved on this slate. He's got a slightly lower floor. However, he's got just as much upside. He's more than $2,000 less in salary. His team is 11.5 point favorites to win.
  • Vladimir Stimac F - I probably won't have a lot of shares if any because I'm looking to save at forward on this slate. However, if you're looking for a forward with a high floor and high ceiling Stimac is the man! He's the leading rebounder in the league, which increases his floor and despite only playing 14 minutes last game, which rarely happens, he still exceeded over a fantasy point per minute.
  • Sergio Rodriguez G - I'm not sure if I'm going to play him yet because I prefer De Colo and I feel like playing them both in the same lineup will limit my upside. However, I like him for all of the same reasons why I like De Colo. If I can fit him in today, he will be in at least some of my lineups.
Mid Tier ($7,300 to $9,900)
  • Nemanja Nedovic G - He got a $1000 price increase but for good reason because he's been KILLING it!. He was 38% owned a couple of days ago and was in the winning lineup. He's got another good matchup today. I will definitely have some shares of him today.
  • Kyle Hines F - I don't know if I will have a lot of ownership because again, I'm looking to pay down for forward today. However he's got a nice floor and CSKA Moscow has the highest implied offensive total on the entire slate. So if you're looking for a forward at the higher end of the mid tier, he's as good of a play as any.
  • Vassillis Spanoulis G - If you're looking for a low owned guard with some risk but has the potential to exceed value Spanoulis is your man. He was only 1% owned a couple of days ago but exceed 3x value in his 3rd Euroleague game this season. Olympiacos has an excellent matchup and he accumulates fantasy points with his passing as well as his scoring.
  • James Augustine F - He's been a monster the last 2 games scoring over 40 fantasy points. He's been killing it on the boards and he was only 8% owned. I will definitely have some ownership this time around.
  • Kostas Papanikolaou F - Georgios Printezis is out. The other day I told you that I was locking Papanikolaou in all my lineups. He responded with 31.5 fantasy points and he was only 26% owned. I'm going right back to the well again and I will once again be locking him into all my lineups. 
Value Tier ($6,800 and Below)
  • Curtis Jerrells G - I'm probably not going to play him because I'm looking to pay up for guards today and save on forwards. However, if you're looking for a cheap guard with the potential to exceed value, that's Jerrells. He is a feast or famine player. He can put up single digit fantasy points one game and then drop 40 fantasy points another game. If I do play him it won't be more than 10% exposure.
  • Ray Mccallum G - If you're looking for a safer play in the value tier, McCallum has hit at least 2x value in 9 of 11 games this season based on today's price. He's hit 3x value in 2 of the last 3 and the one he missed he was very close.
  • Vincent Poirier F - He's a risky play but in his last two games this risk has certainly paid off scoring 49 fantasy points and 26 fantasy points. A repeat performance anywhere within that range will potentially put him in the winning GPP lineup. I will have some shares.
  • Jamal McLean F - He crushed it last time out scoring 44 fantasy points. Printezis and Milutinov are still out so I see no reason why not to go right back to the well. He will be in at least 50% of my lineups.
  • Matt Jenning G - He's hit or exceeded 3x value in 80% of his games this season based on today's price. He's a great option down in the value tier to increase the overall floor of your lineup. Plus with Jason Granger potentially out that could increase his value even more.
  • Phil Pressey G - He's hit or exceeded 3x value in 5 consecutive games and he's only 4k. FC Barcelona has the 3rd highest implied total on the slate today. Make sure you have some exposure.
  • Marcelinho Huertas G - I like him only if Jason Granger doesn't play. He exceeded 4x value a couple of days ago with Granger out. He's a very inconsistent player but he has some upside.
