Here are some of our suggestions today:
PG/SG: Lance Stephenson ($4300)
PG: Dennis Smith Jr. ($5500)
Lance Stephenson is so inconsistent but has been quite solid as of late. In his last game, he went for 30.8 fantasy points. Even with Rajon Rondo back, Stephenson has shown that he can put up numbers off the bench for the Lakers.
Dennis Smith Jr. has had 2 straight games with over 35 fantasy points. The Mavs always seem to stick in games which gives DSJr. plenty of time on the court. Expect him to start to have games where he puts up over 20 actual points more often.
SG/SF: Danny Green ($4700)
SG/PG: Markelle Fultz ($4200)
Danny Green should always be good for a steal or two. With Kawhi Leonard out tonight against the Bucks, Danny Green is a must-start. We should see him attempting a lot more shots than we are accustom to.
It’s a little risky to go with Markelle Fultz given that JJ Redick has been outstanding for Philly, but with the 76ers going against a bad Hawks team, Fultz should get some solid run. If you have to decide between Green and Fultz, though, go for Green.
SF/SG: Buddy Hield ($5500)
SF/PF: Thaddeus Young ($4600)
Buddy Hield is the best scorer on the Kings. He’s been very solid this season and we are surprised to see Hield at only $5500 price. He’s a safe choice for like 30 fantasy points.
Thad Young has been a disappointment this year and we expect Sabonis to soon take over his spot in the starting lineup. But, there aren’t too many solid cheap options at SF and Portland could be the team that breaks him out of his early-season slump.
PF/C: Paul Millsap ($5500)
PF/C: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson ($5000)
Paul Millsap hasn’t grabbed more than 6 boards in his last 3 games, but with Anthony Davis out tonight, Millsap should have a much better opportunity to put up bigger numbers.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is back and he’s one of the guys who will stuff the stat sheet. The Nets have a lot of guys who do that, but not many can do what RHJ can do.
C/PF: Serge Ibaka ($5200)
C/PF: Kelly Olynyk ($4900)
Serge Ibaka continued his strong play with 11 points and eight rebounds against the Dallas Mavericks. By continuing to play starters minutes, he’s a strong candidate for consistent production. With Kawhi Leonard resting against the Milwaukee Bucks, scoring and rebounding will have to come from somewhere.
Kelly Olynyk is coming off of a smoking hot game against the Trail Blazers on Saturday night. He finished with 19 points on nine field goal attempts and shot 50% from three. Add in his five rebounds, five assists, and one steal, and you’ve got yourself a well-rounded stat line. He’ll look to continue that against the Kings.
