Bucks vs. Rockets Fantasy Tip

Brandon Knight has been a reliable fantasy producer in FanDuel leagues this season, but against a tenacious defender like Patrick Beverley, he could be in for a tough game. According to 82games.com, opposing point guards have a cumulative PER of just 10.6 against Beverley, and they've committed 5.2 turnovers per 48 minutes.

Houston is still without Dwight Howard, but his replacement--Donatas Motiejunas--has played quite well of late, going over 20 points in two of his last three games. And John Henson isn't likely to blow up for huge scoring numbers, but he's got potential on the glass and can derive a lot of fantasy value from his shot-blocking.
