It’s Premier League Saturday and The Weekly Monster is running on Fanteam! And while you are probably sweating for a much needed goal from Danny Ings or Tammy Abraham you could do something useful and start preparing for the night. NBA is back on Fanteam with € 10 000 in prices and over € 800 for the first place.
Here are some picks to start with:
Damian Lillard, PG, Blazers (13.2 M)
Lillard is quite expensive, but if C.J. McCollum will not play, Lillard’s usage rate (33%) will be even higher. That could result in a huge game against the Thunder.
Andre Drummond, C, Pistons (13.1 M)
Drummond has been quiet recently and we can expect him to be a bit overlooked. He is in a great matchup against the Hawks where he collected 50 fantasypoints in just 28 minutes the last time the teams met.
John Collins, PF, Hawks (10.8 M)
Collins is the perfect midrange play. Solid floor, solid ceiling and a nice match against the Pistons.
DeAndre Ayton, C, Suns (10.5)
Ayton almost scored 60 fantasypoints in yesterdays match against the Knicks. He seems to benefit from the absence of Kelly Oubre and is great play for 10.5 M anyways.
MikalBridges, SF, Suns (5.7 M)
Bridges will be in the starting five again with Oubre out. He draws a tough matchup against the Celtics but he should get a lot of playing time what makes him a cheap option for the small forward slot.
Anfernee Simons, SG, Blazers (4.8 M)
Usual starter C.J. McCollum is probably out against the Thunder, which will give Simons a great boost in minutes. For just 4.8 M he should be a top value play tonight.
Injuries to watch:
Anthony Davis (14.5 M) – Should he be out again, the Lakers would heavily rely on James (15.5 M) who becomes a must play.
C.J. McCollum (9.9 M) – McCollum is expcted to sit out this night, but should he be fit, Simons would be less appealing as a value play.
Steven Adams (9.1 M) – No Updates on Adams yet. If he is out, Nerlens Noel (5.9 M) would start in his place.
Jalen Brown (9.7 M) – The same goes for Brown. If he is out again, Marcus Smart (7.6 M) would start for the Celtics in his place and becomes an option fort he shooting guard.
