Hello fantasy sports fans! The Wave had a successful Sunday in both NFL and NBA line-ups, but more so with our NFL one. Tannehill paid off well as did the two backs. Unfortunately, trusting in the Cards wide and Zay Jones was a bit of a mistake. However, we can keep the ball rolling tonight with the Viking vs Seahawks and multiple NBA games.
I’m pulling a lot of player from the Heat-Lakers match-up because I think it will be a good one. For more on that game, check out Vaughan Jones’ preview here. LeBron James is a must have for me. I also like Lonzo’s shot at having a much better game than he had in Memphis. Bam has played superbly in Whiteside’s absence.
Burks looks like the main 2 guard in Cleveland with George Hill gone. Frazier has been playing well, hopefully AD plays tonight to help get him those assists. Randle has been absolutely killing it lately and if AD does not play, Randle will feast on the Celtics.
Looney has just been okay as the new starting center for GS. He does not get a ton of minutes, but I’m hoping Kerr uses him more tonight to contend with KAT. Marc Gasol has been in a bit of a slump, but this could be an opportunity for him to break out of it. At least, I’m banking on it.
NFL: Vikings @ Seahawks
As our executive editor, Dave Eversole, recommended, I’m giving a defense a shot at the captain’s chair. Both of these defenses are pretty good and I think that could lead to a defensive battle. However, Seattle’s defense plays really well at home and on prime-time, so I will give them the nod for captain, while still having the Vikings’ D picked up.
Thielen is a stud, he should get his usual numbers. Maybe Wilson can have good night throwing, it is hard to run on Minnesota. Lockett has been very underrated this year, so I’m going to take a chance with him. Dalvin Cook could have a big night, and he was my choice for captain if I did not use a defense (Not hoping for another Derrick Henry situation).
