Here are some thoughts on the best Raptors in play tonight:
Raptors FanDuel Plays for Tonight vs. the Cavaliers
Top play: Kyle Lowry ($9,100) has been a must-play FanDuel guy since DeMar DeRozan went down. He has topped 50 fantasy points (FP) in each of his last three games on the strength of 31.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.3 blocks, and only 2.0 turnovers per game. On Wednesday, as you might remember, he hung a career-high 39 points on the Jazz. The Raptors are a solid offensive team and the Cavaliers' defense is suspect, so expect a lot of points in this one with Kyle leading the charge.
Bargain play: Greivis Vasquez ($4,800) is one of the best cheap options at point guard in the whole NBA tonight and likely will be every time the Raptors play until FanDuel raises his price. He has started three straight games in place of DeRozan and has a hot streak going back five games now, in which he has had a floor of 25.6 FP and an average of 27.7. Over that stretch, his 16.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and mere 1.4 turnovers per contest have made him a hard guy to sit. Other bargain plays include Lou Williams ($4,900) and James Johnson ($4,000), but they've traded off productive games over the last three and Vasquez's newfound consistency might be easier on your stomach.
