Let's take a look at who you should target on today's main slate, which starts at 6 p.m. EST.

Best of the Best

Karl-Anthony Towns (FanDuel Price: $9,800) - Thanks to an awful 13.0-FanDuel-point, foul-plagued performance on Wednesday, the usually consistent Towns -- who is averaging a double-double -- is a bargain at under $10,000 on Sunday. He is coming off a dominant 31-point, 12-rebound night on Saturday in which he collected 52.4 FanDuel points -- his third game in the last week with at least 47.9 fantasy points. In his nine games played this season, the Minnesota Timberwolves' center has scored at least 41 points in seven of them. Today he gets to face a Charlotte Hornets squad that is projected to allow the T-Wolves to score 112.25 points, the highest implied total of the main slate.
