Yahoo Plays and Strategy for Saturday, January 20

I’m excited to write about this slate! There were some plays that really stuck out, with the San Antonio-Washington matchup looking like the most stackable game on the board. That’s a rare opportunity for both of those terrible teams to win, and we could see many players in the optimal lineup from that beautiful matchup. With that in mind, let’s get started with two point guards in that game.

GUARD

Tyus Jones, WAS vs. SAS ($20)

Tyus started slowly in his first month with the Wizards, but he’s been cruising since then. The Washington PG is averaging 34 Yahoo points per game across his last 17 outings. He even had 34 Y! points despite making just one shot on Thursday, showcasing what makes him such a reliable option in this distributing role. That playmaking should be on display in this sensational matchup with San Antonio, sitting 24th in defensive efficiency and 26th in points allowed. He faced them as a starter twice last season when filling in for Ja Morant, averaging 46 Y! points per game in those matchups.

Tre Jones, SAS at WAS ($16)

Having two brothers as our two guard recommendations is pretty wild, but you better believe these siblings will go at it in this magical matchup. Let’s start there because Washington’s defense is even worse than San Antonio. The Wizards rank last in points allowed and 29th in defensive efficiency while surrendering the second-most fantasy points to opposing guards. That’s scary with how Tre has performed since his reinsertion into the starting lineup, scoring at least 27 Yahoo points in six of his eight starts while averaging 30 Y! points per game. In his last start against Washington, Tre picked up a double-double en route to 34 fantasy points.

Guard to Avoid

Bogdan Bogdanovic, ATL vs. CLE ($19)

Bogdan was one of the best bench players in the NBA through the opening two months of the year, but he hasn’t been the same recently. The Serbian has 28 or fewer fantasy points in 11 of his last 13 games, ceding touches to Trae Young and Dejounte Murray. That poor stretch also directly correlates with the return of Jalen Johnson, with Bogdan playing 28 or fewer minutes in 10 consecutive…
