Jeff Pratt:

I’m staying away from all the studs in this matchup and picking a player who I think is wildly underpriced, which is Derrick White at just $8100. He’s been absolutely phenomenal in the last two games, really harnessing the new dad energy ever since the birth of his son—congrats to him. He’s at 39 and 27.25 DK fantasy points, respectively. Boston is relying on him more to lessen Marcus Smart’s load, I expect that to happen again tonight. Like Matt said earlier, Smart only played around half of the game last time. I think we’re going to see a similar output from him tonight. He’s cheaper than Max Strus, who has shot a combined 0 for 18 over the last two games. He’s also cheaper than Kyle Lowry, who can barely move out there, and he scored negative fantasy points in 25 minutes last game. This is a phenomenal opportunity to pay up for White and save to pay up at other positions.

Jeff’s Pick: Derrick White ($8,100 CP)
