Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. This week’s article will be short because I’m traveling back home. As far as last week goes, it was just ok and I need to start taking some of my own advice. Anyway let’s get on with this 7 game slate:
Damian Lillard (9,100) has a usage rate of 31.5% and that is good for 6th overall in the league. Also, the Lakers give up the 2nd most fantasy points to PG’s. Lillard put a 65 spot on them last Sunday.
Ish Smith (6,600) has been over 40 fantasy points 3 out of his last 4 games with Jrue Holliday on the court. The matchup vs Utah isn’t the greatest, but Holiday is sitting out.
If Damian Lillard is Batman, then C.J. McCollum (6,500) is Robin. If you want to pay up a little for SG on Saturday night then he’s your man. McCollum put up 39.5 DK points last Sunday against the same defenseless Lakers.
If I am recommending J.R. Smith (5.300), then there aren’t many options at SG tonight. He has been pretty good as of late. He’s averaging 28 DK points over his last 6 games. The Nets give up a lot of production to SG’s.
Wes Matthews (4,200) gets to face a Nuggets team that gives up the most fantasy points to SG’s. I know he hasn’t been great this season, but all he needs is between 21 to 25 fantasy points to hit his value.
There isn’t much to get excited about the SF position on Saturday night. If you want to pay up for LeBron James (9,600) at his cheapest price of the season I can’t fault you, but there is some blowout risk against the Nets.
Kawhi Leonard (8,400) is the ultimate cash game player. Over the last 10 games he gives you a floor of 35 points and a ceiling of 55 points.
DeMarre Carroll (5,700) gets a Wizards team on the 2nd game of a back to back and are the worst team vs. SF’s.
We all know Anthony Davis (10,600) is a stud but he’s difficult to justify paying up for in cash games against Utah. The Jazz are a really good defensive team and play at the slowest pace in the NBA. The Brow is a GPP option for me. Update: Davis went out with a right knee injury last night. Ryan Anderson will start in his place if soft ass Anthony Davis sits out.
Luis Scola (5,100) benefits the most with Jonas Valanciunas being out injured.
Mason Plumlee (6,000) hasn’t been below 30 fantasy points in his last 4 games. Plumlee had his best fantasy game of the season against the Lakers last Sunday.
Zaza Pachulia (5,600) gets the best matchup of all. Denver is the worst at defending opposing centers, giving up 54.73 fantasy points per game.
