Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Chris Paul put on a show vs. the Lakers in a 115-105 win, scoring 23 points with 14 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one triple in 29 minutes. Playing in his age-36 season, CP3 is aging like a fine wine and was dancing with the ball around Anthony Davis on several occasions. Yes it's only two games but we like his chances of outperforming his ADP of 31.
Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin
C.J. McCollum hit 14-of-24 shots and six 3-pointers for 34 points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in Wednesday's surprising loss to the Kings. Dame Lillard struggled tonight but CJM couldn't have played much better. This might be a sell-high moment on McCollum, but he's primed for a big season alongside Lillard in Portland.
