Daily Fantasy NBA 2/10/14: Matchup Plays and Value Picks
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
February 10, 2014
There are a half-dozen NBA games out there tonight, which means we’ll be seeing a good bit of fantasy basketball action in leagues everywhere. With that in mind, let’s take our daily look at some of the trending players in the fantasy world and see if any of them are worth adding to your squad. If you’re looking for an up-and-coming player or a sleeper/matchup option for the near future, here’s where to start.
Patrick Mills, SG, San Antonio Spurs: Every so often, Mills will completely break out of his shell and provide a dominant performance that turns fantasy heads across the board. Such an occurrence happened in his last appearance on Saturday, when he dumped 32 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals on the Bobcats.
Mills has seen double-digit scoring in five of his last six outings, so he’s been pretty hot lately. That puts him in play for most standard leagues and pretty much all deep ones, especially during this grueling road trip. He’s in Detroit tonight.

Marvin Williams, SF/PF, Utah Jazz: Williams doesn’t play until tomorrow, but he should be on your radar anyway if you’re in the market for a forward. He’s been on a stellar three-game streak, providing at least 21 points and three rebounds in each outing of that span. The big stand-out stat is his 10 made threes over the past two games, so he’s hitting well from outside right now.
Williams shouldn’t go unowned in any mid-to-deep league, so grab him if he’s out there. You should see immediate results by tomorrow in L.A. against the Lakers. Ride with him while he’s hot.
Corey Brewer, SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves: Brewer is worth kicking the tires on in just about every league, especially while the T-Wolves wrestle with their current injury situation. He’s coming off a 26-point, seven-rebound, two-assist effort against Portland, which was a season-high in scoring for him.
As long as Minnesota is banged up, they’ll look to Brewer to provide some additional scoring. That gives him some added fantasy value, at least until Kevin Martin returns. The Timberwolves play Houston tonight.
John Henson, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks: Speaking of injury situations, we’re looking at another complex one in Milwaukee. The Bucks have had trouble with Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova recently, which puts Henson in the mix for fantasy value. He’s coming off a 14-point, 10-rebound outing against the Rockets on Saturday.
Owners will have to monitor the statuses of Sanders and Ilyasova, and as long as they’re hurting Henson becomes a viable fantasy play. The Bucks are at home again tonight against the Celtics.
Kyle Singler, SG/SF, Detroit Pistons: Singler is a relative newcomer to the fantasy radar, but he’s been putting up some fairly impressive lines recently. He’s scored double-digits in five of his last six appearances, with the most recent coming on a 10-point, three-rebound, one-assist, two-steal effort against Denver on Saturday.
As long as Singler remains in the starting lineup for Detroit, he’s in the conversation as a lower-end fantasy starter. As his minutes go, so does his production, so the longer he’s out on the floor tonight against the Spurs, the better.
