But, if you don't have the time today, I'm here to provide you with five of the hottest players from the last five games -- and ones in good spots going into tonight's slate of games.

Tim Frazier, PG, New Orleans Pelicans

FanDuel Price: $6,800

FanDuel Season Avg. L5 Avg. % Above
Tim Frazier 11.75 36.02 206.63

Tim Frazier's price rises again. Tim Frazier continues to outplay his salary. Tim Frazier makes this list once again. It's that simple -- what else can I tell you? Since he was signed for the remainder of the year, Frazier has been getting all the minutes he needs to produce for DFS players. 

He has had at least 32 FanDuel points in four out of his last five games with two games of 45-plus points over his last six. In nearly 33 minutes against the Bulls Monday night, Frazier put up 20 points, 11 assists and 6 rebounds for 47.7 FanDuel points and a value of 7.34 points per $1,000. Tonight, he gets a Minnesota team surrendering the 23rd-most fantasy points to the position, among all 28 teams on the slate.

Seth Curry, PG, Sacramento Kings

FanDuel Price: $6,100

FanDuel Season Avg. L5 Avg. % Above
Seth Curry 10.83 28.42 162.36

Everybody is talking about that Curry guy lately. And no, I'm not talking about the reigning MVP -- I'm talking about his younger brother Seth Curry, who has really come on for the dreadful Kings as of late. As a product of rest days for guys like DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo and even Darren Collison, Curry has been forced to play big minutes and carry a lot of responsibility on the offensive end particularly.

In his last five contests, Seth is averaging 16.8 points while shooting 55.2% from downtown in that same span of games. Last night, he added another dimension to his offensive productivity by handing out 15 assists in his first double-double of his NBA career. Curry's 50 fantasy point night provided those rostering him with 11.13 points for every grand they dropped on his $4,500 salary. With Cousins, Rondo and Collison out yet again, who else is going to handle the ball and score?

Kent Bazemore, SF, Atlanta Hawks

FanDuel Price: $5,300

FanDuel Season Avg. L5 Avg. % Above
Kent Bazemore 22.91 34 48.38

It's really weird to be typing this, but Kent Bazemore has been absolutely a beast in recent games. He's a big reason why the Hawks are playing really great basketball right now -- not just defensively but offensively, where Bazemore has put up 15.4 points per game over his last five and 20.3 in the last three.

Where Bazemore sets himself apart from the other scoring-dependent small forward options is through his ability to contribute steals, assists and rebounds on a consistent basis. In fact, of his last four games, he's had three with at least five rebounds and three assists, two with at least two blocks, and three with at least three steals. He's been super active lately, putting up points in various categories. With the combination of his hot shooting and Washington's inability to guard the wing positions, Bazemore makes for a solid play tonight -- especially in tournaments.

Paul Millsap, PF, Atlanta Hawks

FanDuel Price: $8,700

FanDuel Season Avg. L5 Avg. % Above
Paul Millsap 37.6 48.18 28.13

Paul Millsap is another trending player returning for the second time in three days -- and rightfully so. Sure, Millsap had a tough time against the Cavaliers Monday night, but prior to that, he had four consecutive games of 40-plus FanDuel points with three of at least 50 points.

Did I mention Millsap will cost you under $9K tonight? Oh, I did? Well I'll say it again. Millsap costs just $8,700 tonight, which is a big deal for one reason: in the last five games, he possesses the fourth-highest average output behind only Steph Curry, James Harden and an inactive LeBron James. The nickname-less Millsap will cost you $2,400 less than the Beard and $1,600 less than Chef Curry. He's even been outscoring Karl-Anthony Towns and Draymond Green, both of whom are priced at $8,700. Tell me what I'm missing here.

Gordon Hayward, SF, Utah Jazz

FanDuel Price: $7,300

FanDuel Season Avg. L5 Avg. % Above
Gordon Hayward 31.88 36.68 15.06

I know, I know -- who cares about lil' ole Gordon Hayward in this game? It's Kobe Bryant's last game. And that's why you should jump on Gordon Hayward tonight. The Mamba will be focused on going out with a bang and getting up his shots on the offensive end. Defensively, he'll probably relax more than his usual self because, well, his body probably can't handle it for how many minutes I'm sure he'd like to play tonight.

Hayward should be the benefactor, and it just so happens that the small forward has been killing as of late. He is the second-highest scoring (active) small forward on this slate -- behind Giannis Antetokounmpo -- over the last five games. He's had four games of at least 37.5 FanDuel points over his last five in the midst of shooting over 48% from the floor for 21.2 real points a night. Hayward makes for a great cash game play and a solid tournament option against the Lakers.
