Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Deandre Ayton posted 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and a triple in Sunday’s 133-95 win over San Antonio. Ayton still doesn’t look thrilled to be out on the court in a Suns uniform, but hey, at least he’s not mailing it in. The big man posted his eighth double-double over his last nine contests and bounced back from a pedestrian eight-point, six-rebound showing against the Rockets. In that nine-game run, the big man has averaged 19.5 points, 12.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks, bringing him back into fantasy managers’ good graces after a lackluster start to the season. Let’s just hope he’s here to stay.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Luka Doncic filled up the stat sheet on Saturday, finishing with 30 points (11-for-21 FGs), eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three blocks and four triples in just 29 minutes in a 121-100 win over New York on Saturday. Add in the 4-for-4 shooting from the line, and this was about as good as things gets for Luka. Sure he's capable of bigger numbers, but the defensive numbers, free throw shooting and extra triples don't usually happen all at once. The free throws have been really bad for him lately, so it was nice to see him have a perfect night. If he can get his percentage up, he'll be the dominant fantasy asset that he's talented enough to be.
