New York Knicks DFS Spin

Julius Randle shot 6-of-17 from the field and 2-of-5 from the foul line in Wednesday's 116-105 loss to the Wizards, tallying 14 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 34 minutes. Randle got off to a brutal start Wednesday night, making two of his first 13 shot attempts. The good news is that he did continue his run of games with at least 15 rebounds, extending his streak to six games. But the shot has been off, with Randle shooting 13-of-37 from the field over his last two games. The percentage over the last two weeks (42.0%) isn't bad, but the Knicks' lack of scoring options beyond him, Jalen Brunson, and RJ Barrett (21 points, six rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 37 minutes) means even more is required of Randle. He's still providing 6th-round value in 9-cat formats, so the sky certainly isn't falling.

Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin

Due to a sore left ankle,Trae Young is questionable for Friday's game against the Knicks. Young played 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Mavericks and would be in line for a similar workload if cleared to play Friday night. However, Aaron Holiday is the player most likely to move into the starting lineup if he sits. This would not make Holiday a player worth streaming in most leagues, as Dejounte Murray would run the show.
