Sunday, we’ve got a slate that screams “Stars and Scrubs” as there are some really solid value plays tonight, along with a handful of the highest FP PPG Average Players on the Slate. Check out the article below from our Friends at Fanduel Insider for a quick preview of tonight’s slate.

— Averaging 36.6 FDPs against today’s opponent, the Dallas Mavericks.
— Has played 30-plus minutes in three of his last four games, and playing time is always a concern with the Spurs.

— Even though he’s slumping, he still produces more FDPs than any of today’s shooting guards, with a season average of 44.5.
— The Los Angeles Lakers, Houston’s opponent for the night, rank last in the NBA in defensive efficiency.
