Let's take a look at who you should target on today's slate.

Best of the Best

LeBron James ($9,600): LeBron is our highest-projected fantasy scorer of the day, and it's easy to see why. The New York Knicks ranked 22nd in defensive rating last season while LeBron's 45.1 FanDuel points per game ranked 6th in the league. His 31.4% usage rate ranked eighth among players that saw at least 15 minutes per game, and he is also a threat to do some damage on the glass tonight, sporting a career 17.7% defensive rebound rate while the Knicks ranked only 18th in offensive rebound rate last season.
