Expert NBA Fantasy Advice for Rockets at Pelicans

The first time these two teams met, when Demarcus Cousins made his debut, this game was an absolute blowout. The Vegas Line has this game staying fairly close for some reason, but in our opinion, the Rockets are going to take care of business early and blow the Pelicans out of New Orleans. James Harden is the player to key in on in this match up as he takes on a loaded interior defense of Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins. James Harden has been phenomenal as of late, and if this game can stay close, James Harden can be a tremendous play. We do recommend using him with caution as the Rockets can blow any team out on any given night. Overall, it is going to be up to Cousins and Davis to stay away from foul trouble, and really take over this game in order for the Pelicans to pull away with a win. This game is going to be very high scoring, and going to be ran very uptempo, so we do recommend targeting at least one superstar in this game.
