NBA March 25th Starting Five

The NBA season in full swing and we have another great slate tonight! We have such an exciting season up ahead and plenty of opportunities to win some money! There are four key things I look for in a player to have the highest probability of being optimal!
1. Price
2. Opponent DvP
3. Recent Minutes/Rotation Time
4. Usage Rate
These four statistics paired together are the best suitors to find a gem. Almost everyone I mention below hits on atleast 2 of these if not all of them! Hopefully this will help you be more successful while building lineups and give you a higher chance of winning the big bucks!
I would also like to note that I write these articles early in the day. It is always beneficial to check @FantasyLabsNBA for lineup changes. Those changes could have a direct effect on some of my "favorite plays" in the sense that if a cheap guy that was one of my favorites doesn't start, then they might no longer be a favorite play or even a play at all. Check out my Twitter @HeatingUpDFS for any updates on favorite play changes!

Update: Was probably 2 minutes away from finishing the article the first time with tons of detail when my laptop bricked. Nothing saved so this is my 2nd go of it and I don't have much time. Sorry if it is brief.

PG: Jordan Poole ($7,800)

Poole has been a beast without Curry. 38+ DK points in 4 straight with crazy high usage. Klay and Wiggins have tougher defensive matchups which should open up Poole to smash in an easier defensive matchup.
High: James Harden ($10,000)
Mid: Kyle Lowry ($6,500) or Patrick Beverley ($4,700)
Low: Kris Dunn ($4,500)

SG: Ben McLemore ($3,700)

This game has everything. A high implied total with both teams terrible on the defensive end. McLemore is getting great usage and minutes off the bench. His price is just way too cheap given he has 25+ DK points in 3 of the last 4 games and both Hart and Winslow are out again.
High: Donovan Mitchell ($9,000)
Mid: N/A
Low: Reggie Bullock ($4,400) or CJ Elleby ($4,200)

SF: Terence Mann ($5,500)

This is definitely a GPP play. The Clips came out and said Reggie, Batum and Morris would be on minutes limits for the rest of the season. There was no mention of Mann so 30+ minutes is a lock. Matchup might suck but the minutes and usage will be there along with the fact that he has been balling lately (35+ DK points in 3 of the last 4 games)
High: Cade Cunningham ($8,700)
Mid: Otto Porter ($4,600) or Evan Fournier ($5,000)
Low: Royce O'Neale ($3,900)

PF: Jae'Sean Tate ($4,200)

He is finally back to getting a decent usage and minutes. The price is a bit low and the game environment should be great. The PF position on DK is also not really that great so taking Tate at lower ownership could be a big winner (or loser given his volatility lately). I just think it is a good spot for him against some end of bench/G-Leaguer's.
High: Kristaps Porzingis ($8,300)
Mid: Tobias Harris ($6,900)
Low: Greg Brown ($3,400)

C: Rudy Gobert ($7,600)

This is definitely a Eubanks vs. Gobert slate, but the price gap isn't large enough for me to come off of Gobert especially given he is playing Charlotte who is terrible against bigs. He has destroyed them in the past and I fully expect him to do the same here at a half decent price tag as well. It is just too prime of a spot for Gobert to not want to go to him tonight.
High: Joel Embiid ($11,200) or Christian Wood ($8,300)
Mid: Drew Eubanks ($6,300)
Low: Dwight Powell ($4,800)
Thanks for reading, best of luck, and I hope you enjoy the holidays!
