NO: Headline of the day yesterday was AD wants out. Now I doubt he gets moved this season with the trade deadline already looming, but you never know. He is out currently so we already talked about him too much for DFS purposes.

With AD being out however, the door has opened for Jahlil Okafor to step up, and step up he has. Mirotic is also out so the front court depth is thin enough that Okafor is almost locked into 30+ minutes at this point regardless the matchup. Frank Jackson has also seen a bump in minutes with all the injuries and is worth a look himself at only $3400. Jrue and Randle are the main targets still and seem somewhat underpriced given the circumstances. **Randle has been ruled out now as well so look for Diallo and Hill to get a bump

Tier 1: Jrue, Okafor
Tier 2: Jackson (punt), Diallo, Miller
Tier 3: Hill

HOU: After the slow start the Rockets have moved up to 5th in the West on the back of James Harden. CP3 finally returned last game and played 25 minutes, but the Rockets still needed 40 real points from Harden to get the win. With CP3 back in the mix Harden’s upside comes down a bit and Eric Gordon goes back to being a shooter with almost no usage. Faried has been the perfect addition after Capela went down with an injury that will sideline him for multiple weeks. Pace up spot so there is definitely value to be had.

Harden is still priced at the CP3-less level so I won’t be paying up for him here even in a good pace up matchup. CP3 on the other hand came down in price to $6900 and should get a few more minutes this game as long as his health holds up. Faried is way up in price since joining the Rockets, but he is still worth a look. I have more interest in him in pace up spots, and as long as we can project him for 36+ minutes he needs to be in consideration.

Tier 1: CP3, Faried
Tier 2: Tucker
Tier 3:
