DAMIAN LILLARD IS ONE OF THE LAST OPTIONS YOU CAN TRUST

If you do not read the player updates shortly before games, your roster will likely have problems. With only two days left of the regular season, Fantasy is becoming a mess as teams are playing their scrubs and sitting their studs. On the positive end of that, no one is playing defense so there is plenty of points to go around.
To add to that, there are now only two games being played on Tuesday due to the Celtics-Pacers game getting cancelled. Here goes nothing.
Raptors at Hawks Atlanta is basically playing for the 5-seed so they likely won’t change up their roster and Toronto has nothing to play for, but they don’t have a ton of players at is, so luckily, this game will be pretty predictable roster-wise.
Josh Smith has been dealing with a knee problem which is worrisome so keep an eye on that. Jeff Teague is a nice mid-range option while Ivan Johnson is a quality play if you need a cheaper option.
The Raptors have four viable players with none of them being all that consistent. At $6,900 at DraftKings.com, Rudy Gay could be the best value. Amir Johnson will at least get close to 10 rebounds, but his scoring is much too sporadic to hope for much more.
Blazers at Clippers Portland is terrible on the road and they have been playing a lot of new guys lately, but it’s a wonder how the Clippers will play. Of course they want the 4-seed, but is the three all that important?
Last game, the Clippers played 11 different guys so good luck with them. I think Matt Barnes has the best value of the bench players as Caron Butler may not suit up. Of course, you can also look at Chris Paul or Blake Griffin and hope this game isn’t a quick blowout.
A lot of people will be on J.J. Hickson after his most recent game. The same can be said about Will Barton who’s been a great Fantasy player as of late. And if you have the money, Damian Lillard is always a good buy because you know he’ll be getting close to 40 minutes.
