Cavs vs. Pacers Fantasy tips

George Hill is back and healthy and can be had for relatively cheap. He's getting eased back into the lineup, so it's hard to trust him, but he's not going to kill your cap space.

The Cavs are a tough FanDuel team to predict. I usually put LeBron James on my team, mainly because he's so consistent, but also because the small forward position is fairly weak. He's expensive, for sure, but he's pretty much guaranteed to have a reasonably impressive night. He's just not a bad place to start.

Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are a bit more unpredictable. I played J.R. Smith earlier this week and got burned. Timofey Mozgov is relatively cheap, but there might be better options at center, particularly with Roy Hibbert in the paint.
