New York Knicks DFS Spin
Julius Randle Shot 14-for-21 from the field and 5-for-7 from the foul line in Monday's 136-130 win over Toronto, with 34 points with eight rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.
Randle appeared aggressive as the Knicks played their first game since it was announced Mitchell Robinson would have ankle surgery. He shot 7-for-12 from the field in the first half and scored 22 points. The veteran forward has reached the top 100 in 8-cat formats, but turnovers keep him well outside the threshold in 9-cat. Randle had three against Toronto, and Jalen Brunson (2/9/1/21 with three 3-pointers) had seven. The Knicks are now on the road for the remainder of Week 8, starting Wednesday night at Utah.
Utah Jazz DFS rotation
Laurie Markkanen (left hamstring strain), Walker Kessler (right leg soreness) and John Collins (illness) are questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
Markkanen has not appeared in a game since November 22. His eventual return would give the Jazz a much-needed boost. Simone Fontecchio has started but will be benched when Lauri is allowed to play. Collins and Kessler sat out Monday's loss to the Thunder, with Ochai Agbaji and Kelly Olynyk getting the starts. If all three Jazz players are cleared to play, those two will return to the bench.
