Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 3)

LaMelo Ball

The reigning ROTY has picked up right where he left off last season, averaging a career-high 20.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game. Ball is also lighting it up from beyond the arc, shooting an incredible 44.1%. The 6’7 guard is stuffing the stat sheet, racking up 52+ DKFP in back-to-back contests. He’ll look to keep the positive momentum rolling against a Golden State squad that is struggling defensively (27th in DKFP allowed to PGs). At $8,600, it’s worth rolling the dice on LaMelo.
