The Cavs have had a few days off for rest since Sunday afternoon's win over the Milwaukee Bucks. They are back at it tonight in Memphis though to face off with the Memphis Grizzlies. It's an intriguing matchup that features one of the NBA's best offenses (the Cavs!) and one of the best defenses (not the Cavs!).
Cavs vs. Grizzlies fantasy advice
I'm hesitant to try to give any at all, as I've had a bit of a cold streak recently playing FanDuel. The safest fantasy play for the Cavs is probably LeBron James. He's healthy, there's no flu or cold to worry about, he's had a few days off. He tends to be pretty good when he's had a few days off. After him, I'm always hesitant with Kyrie Irving or Kevin Love. Both are great fantasy options, but it's harder to predict on a night to night basis what you are going to get.
If I were to choose one tonight, I'd probably go with Love. He's been good with time off this year, and he usually at least pulls down rebounds. At $7300 that's not a bad price.
If you want to roll the dice, J.R. Smith isn't a bad bet. He's been shooting well lately, and is getting opportunities. There's a lot of variation in three point shooting, so I generally avoid him. Still, he's paid off lately.
