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:

Point Guards

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.

Fire up Patty Mills (3,600) if Tony Parker takes the night off.

 

Shooting Guards

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.

 

Small Forwards

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.  

Consider Rudy Gay (7,400) if DeMarcus Cousins is out again

 

Power Forwards

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.

I am having a hard time separating Draymond Green (7,400) and Derrick Favors (7,100) on Saturday night.  Both have favorable matchups and are good cash game plays.  

Luis Scola (5,100) benefits the most with Jonas Valanciunas being out injured.  

 

Centers

Rudy Gobert (6.100) gets the same good matchup that Derrick Favors does.  New Orleans gives up 53.23 fantasy points per game to centers

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.

 

Don’t forget to check twitter for any late scratches and player news.  As always you can catch me on twitter @realdaddybigs or leave a comment below. Good luck this weekend in your games.

    Great writing danb! Would you drop any of these guys for Ish? M Morris T Jones A Burks M Turner. Thanks!

    9 Cat. Would you Trade Anderson+Dragic for Gay+Evans? I’m trying to sell high on Anderson because I can’t trust him to be healthy all year. What are some other players other than Gay that I should realistically target with him? Also, do you guys think Dragic will start playing like we all expected, or is it time to start worrying? Thanks!

      @Andrew Ringer: If you can get the other owner to do it then go ahead

    Boogie, Holiday, Evans, Williams, and Barnes are not expected to play. Davis is probable. Bump up Koufas and Gay but the spread is 15 1/2. Ish Smith should be a great play. Barnes being out makes me think Green will be 30 mins for sure. Don’t play anyone on the Lakers.

    One player I didn’t write up that is in a good spot is Deron Williams (5800)

    Jared Dudley is starting tonight. Wizards are thin up front. He is only 3k

    Hey Razzball, hope our Thanksgiving went well for you and your families.

    Been getting a bunch of trade offers, wondering if you could touch on these three:

    1) MY Millsap for HIS Towns + Porzingus

    2) MY CP3 + Gallo for HIS Klay + Brandon Knight

    3) MY CP3 + Favors + Aaron Gordon for HIS Davis + Ariza + George Hill

    Which of these trades would you take? I need some points/threes and boards/blocks wouldn’t hurt. I can definitely afford to lose some assists.

    Thoughts on certain players:
    -VERY Worried about the situation with Davis’ health and Pelicans not looking good in the West.
    -Towns hasn’t eclipsed 22 minutes in like his past 4 games. Something to worry about?
    -Not sure if klay gets up to his 22 points and 3 threes. Steals are also low.
    -Worried I might regret giving away Gordon if he gets the starting job or more minutes.

    But I’m not here to give you my opinions haha. If you disagree with any of that PLEASE enlighten me. I don’t know which one to go with here.

    Thank you, RAZZZZup!

      @Threekola: #1 is a toss up. Millsap is so steady but the two rookies have upside. If it’s a dynasty league then it’s a no brainier. #2 yes. Klay won’t be as good as last year. #3 is fine too. AD is a stud

      • Threekola says:

        @DB:

        Do you have worry about AD missing games going forward?

        Also, which trade do you like the best?

        Thanks!

          @Threekola: Most players will miss time. Either from injury or rest. Think I read it wrong the 1st time. I wouldn’t do #2. Don’t want Klay. If u need to make a deal u want the best player so that would be the AD trade. I don’t like George Hill through.

    Hey danb good stuff,

    Any thoughts on the awesome 76ers and who is going to be the best guard to own? McConnell Canaan, wroten?

    • danb

      DB says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Wroten when he comes back and is off a mins limit. McConnell is trash. Cannan is just ok

  8. Favors says:

    I was offered Beal and Ish for my Favors. I need help in most categories, but assists, 3pt, points are particularly dire. Take it? Thanks!

    • danb

      DB says:

      @Favors: if u can afford to get rid of the big man Favors then it’s fine. Pelicans need to realize Ish is way better than Jrue

        @DB: Thanks!

    I know its late but I have a quick question in a 12 team h2h 9 cat no TO we use FG% instead would you trade john wall n robin lopez for tobais harris and covington. Lopez pisses me off to no end and I could use the 3’s, steals, FT% I ‘d get from covington over wall. Plus both score about the same so…. I’m kinda lost here. I have plenty of ast. on my team i think. But my team only competes at maybe 5 cats steals, ast. , 3’s, blocks and FT% so I thought this would strengthen those cats other than ast. …your thoughts? thank you !!

    • danb

      DB says:
      (link)

      @tentyme: personally I don’t give up the best player in a trade unless overwhelmed. This case Wall is the best player. I know he hasn’t been great but be patient. Covington just came back and is doing well but the owner is selling high on him. Can’t fault him. Ro Lo sucks. Look on the wire to replace him before making a deal like this.

        @DB: Thank you of the reply much appreciated !!

    Is terrence jones dropable in an 8 team league? Clarkson, ish, and Jones are my lowest performers, and dieng, parker, hibbert, cj miles, rhj, Marvin williams, otto porter, kanter, and bogut are all on waivers. I like jones a lot but he it doesn’t look like his struggles are just going to go away, and I can use the blocks and boards with AD turning into the gingerbread man.

    • danb

      DB says:
      (link)

      @Mex: Ish Smith can’t be one of your lowest performers. If he is then u got a stacked team. If u want to drop Clarkson or Jones and play match ups each week or game then that’s fine

      • Mex says:
        (link)

        @DB: ya my team is stacked up phat like niki menaje. I’m 3-1 in 2nd but I’m crushing it this week.
        John Wall
        Andrew Wiggins
        Kawhi Leonard
        Greg Monroe
        Andre Drummond
        Tobias Harris
        Giannis Antetokounmpo
        Terrence Jones
        Jordan Clarkson
        Anthony Davis
        Al horford
        Eric Gordon
        Ish Smith

        Tha KS for the advice I’ve been streaming clarkson and just dropped sullengr for ish but now need the boards so I’ll be streating jones. Wasn’t sure if he was worth holding onto.

          @Mex: that reads out retarded but I’m on my phone homie!

          Who do you think is a good value target in a trade for Eric gordon? Im trying for klay but no good so far. Want to dump gordon, I only need his points.

          • danb

            DB says:
            (link)

            @Mex: I wouldn’t want Klay this year. I’m sure it’s hard to trade in a 8 team league
