Nikola Jokic vs Sacramento Kings
Now that Demarcus Cousins is gone, the Kings might have the worst two centers in the league. Nobody on the Kings roster will come close to holding Jokic to less than 20 points and 10 rebounds tonight. Jokic has been a top three center this year and in this matchup he has the chance to be the highest scoring player on the slate.
Willie Cauley-Stein vs Denver Nuggets
The trade of Demarcus Cousins has affected this whole slate and Cauley-Stein will have the biggest benefit. I’m guessing that Cauley-Stein will get the first shot at starting and if not he should see a big uptick in minutes still. He has been a good fantasy point per minute guy this year and this is his time to shine. Cauley-Stein has a low price and in a fast pace game versus the Nuggets, he should have no problem hitting value.
