The Bulls are in the midst of a full re-build and it seems that Kris Dunn is going to be a big component to that re-build. He hasn’t put up the same numbers he was doing prior to the concussion and All-Star break, but he has been close enough to meeting value each night that you have to think that a breakout game is coming. The Brooklyn Nets are ranked as a top-10 team in pace and is the league’s worst at giving up fantasy points to point guards on the season. Dunn is a player that meets value with help from his defensive stats and the good news for Dunn’s potential owners is that the Nets are tied for 7th worst in turnovers (13.7).
Frank Mason III
This is one of my sleepers for tonight’s slate. Mason continues to play on a minutes restriction since returning from a heel injury. In his last matchup against the Lakers, the rookie finished with six points, three rebounds and six assists to finish with 18.6 fantasy points. To have a minimum priced player that has the upside for a 20 fantasy point night is not the worst thing to have on your roster.
Holiday has been phenomenal this season for the Pelicans both in reality and fantasy. His value point is at 42.5 for tonight’s game and over his last four games he’s averaging 53.4. With a matchup against the Phoenix Suns, Holiday is going to be a solid player to own.
Jimmy Butler is out indefinitely after undergoing knee surgery last week. Jamal Crawford has seen the uptick in playing time which has resulted in better production. Most may not know this, but Crawford is considered a “Kings Slayer” in the Sacramento area. Crawford just seems to feast against the Kings. With the extended minutes it’s hard not to add Crawford to your roster.
Bejlica has slotted into the starting small forward position since the Butler injury. He’s capable of a big game on any given night and a matchup against the Suns could be the team help get him going.
This is my favorite play of the day. I’m almost ready to give it the “Miracle Guarentee” that he exceeds his value tonight. The Hawks are in full youth movement right now, so the minutes will obviously be there. Make sure you have Prince in your lineup.
Green has yet to make value since returning from the break but a matchup against a feisty Kanter and a Porzingis-less Knicks team could be the remedy to bring him back up to speed.
Ibaka has been on a tear as of late and for some reason he tends to bring his game up when he plays against Blake Griffin. He’s continuously overlooked and you could see his ownership stay relatively low.
He’s Anthony Davis and he’s playing against the Suns.
