Underdog Fantasy NBA Daily Pick ‘Em Plays – January 11
Jarrett Allen – Higher than 11.5 Rebounds
With the way that Allen has been pulling down boards as of late, I was taken aback by this projection. he’s hit this projection three games in a row and is averaging 15.7 rebounds per game in that span. Also, Brooklyn is 20th in the league in allow rebounds to players, so it isn’t due to a bad matchup. So let’s ride the hot hand and watch him clean the glass all afternoon.
Julius Randle – Higher than 4.0 Assists
After the departure of RJ Barrett in December, Julius Randle has taken to distributing the ball a bit more. The first game without his longtime teammate he didn’t get a single one, but since then, he’s never failed to meet this projection. He’s averaging 4.4 for the month. He had eight last game and for the third time all year had more dimes than he did rebounds. I’m not sure how long that’ll keep up, but he seems to be fine doing a bit more dishing lately.
Nic Claxton – Higher than 12.5 Rebounds + Assists
Claxton did enough on the boards to meet this projection in two of his last three games – and also in three of his last five. That should be enough to like this line as is, but then you can add in that he too has been distributing the ball much better as of late. Despite averaging only 1.8 assists per game, he’s had three dimes in each of his last two. When you get the combination of the two stat lines here, there should be no sweat.
