Final week for most leagues. It’s that one time of the fantasy season when it doesn’t matter who you’d drop (unless it’s a keeper/dynasty), ‘coz if you’re still managing your team, then it must be playing for something.
In my opinion, the moves available this week is very limited unless one of your top guys encounter an injury or team setup is where you have 2+ guys playing for the teams not playing on Friday and/or Sunday. This is because there are 11 games that will be played on those days. So really if you haven’t streamed on Thurs, you really probably want to load up for Saturday’s slate especially if the players’ last game for the week is Friday or Saturday (MIN, LAC, DET, ORL, POR, SAC).
So for today, I’ll only focus on Saturday’s games. Tad anti climactic being the final edition of this series for this fantasy season.
ATL @ CHI – Have always looked to pick up PGs vs ATL and I’ve seen Rajon Rondo available is some leagues. CHI’s lineup is just…(I’ll leave it at that). If you’re feeling lucky, instead of playing scratch-its, maybe just go with Michael Carter-Williams as he could have one of those all around games. Percentages likely won’t be pretty but if you want to roll the dice on some defensive cats, he could be worth “scratch it” money.
LAC @ LAL – Does it really matter who’s the home team here? Usual suspects here for the Clips–Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, Marreese Speights vs LAL especially with a potential for a blowout. On the other side, ummm…probably blasphemy for some, but I have no clue who the bench players are for this team. If Brandon Ingram has been dropped, he might be a nice pickup too (he’s expected to return on April 1) for counting stats. He’s played much better lately.
ORL @ BKN – Terrence Ross is likely the only ORL player worth grabbing here. I’ve given up on which BKN player can have an impact outside of Brook Lopez. If Jeremy Lin is available, he’s worthy of a pickup especially with a game vs ATL the next day.
PHO @ POR – If looking for 3s, Allen Crabbe should be a target.
Short and sweet for the final edition. I hope everyone had a good fantasy season. Thank you for dropping by and we’ll do this again next season.
