LeBron James ($12,500): The King's 29.7 FanDuel points on Tuesday weren't exactly regal, but that was mainly about the matchup, as the Cleveland Cavaliers took on a Miami Heat team that has held opposing small forwards the league's fewest fantasy points this season. He still played 38 minutes, hitting that mark for the sixth time in his last seven games. One dud doesn't erase the consistency he has shown lately either, topping 60 FanDuel points in six of his last eight, with at least 68 in five of those contests. His matchup today against Charlotte positions him well for a bounce-back, as the Hornets rank 20th in defensive rating since the All-Star break and have allowed the 7th-most FanDuel points per game to opposing small forwards on the year.
