Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 15)

Spencer Dinwiddie

Dinwiddie flew under the radar in free agency, ultimately signing with Washington as what many considered to be a consolation prize after trading Russell Westbrook. Now, he has cemented his role as a core player for the Wizards, who have somehow emerged as the No. 1 team in the Eastern Conference. The UC Boulder product racked up an impressive 49.25 DKFP vs. Orlando on Saturday, and he should see a high usage rate with Bradley Beal (personal) out Monday. Dinwiddie has plenty of upside at $7,200.
