Players to watch
Without further discussion, lets dive into our picks for today.
Check the NBA Fantasy Strategy Guide if you are new to the game.
Jrue Holiday – Pelicans – 12.2
At the moment , Zion is questionable to play in the opener and if he doesn’t , then Holiday is a lock for me. Without Zion taking all the usage away , Holiday will need to take on more responsibilities , which mean more fantasy points for us. Even if Zion plays , he would be one of my top options , since the PG position at the top , is very very thin.
Mike Conley – Jazz – 8.9
Conley had a very bad start of the season , trying to adjust to a new team ,a new system and battling injuries. In the last 9 games before the break , he did average 28.9 fantasy points per game and 0.93 per minute. His recent form plus the absence of Bogdanovic makes him a very intriguing option.
Reggie Jackson – Clippers – 5.7
With Beverley questionable for the game and Lou Williams being in quarantine after he enjoyed a meal in a gentlemen’s club , the Clippers do not have anyone at the point guard position other then Reggie Jackson. So , if he gets the minutes , i like him a lot as a budget option . Since he joined the Clippers he has 0.96 fpg and with that price tag i would be more then happy to roster him.
Donovan Mitchell – Jazz – 12.3
Usually i do not like to pay up in the SG position but if you want to pay 12.3 for Donovan Mitchell i cannot fault you. In 3 games against the Pelicans this season , he is averaging 51.1 fantasy points ! Goes without saying , that if he gets to those number again , then he should be in your lineup , despite the high price tag.
Josh Hart – Pelicans – 6.7 / JJ Reddick – Pelicans – 6.5
Not too thrilled about the cheap options here but i would take whoever is in the lineup from these two. Both of them had one good and one bad game vs the Jazz , so there are not much to separate here. Again , if Zion is out , a lot of Pelicans become very valuable , since there will be an increase in usage for all of them.
Danny Green – Lakers – 5.9 / JR Smith – Lakers – 5.8 / Dion Waiters – Lakers – 5.5
The Lakers brought as free agents both JR Smith and Dion Waiters. Not to thrilled about any of them from a fantasy perspective to be honest since both of them , alongside Danny Green are just gonna split up the minutes and the points. If you have a feeling that one of them is going to go off , then , go for it. The price is right.
Paul George – Clippers – 11.8
I think Leonard is too expensive at 14.9 , so i would go with the second best in the Clippers and that is Paul George. He says that he is feeling way better since his injury and i really hope that he will show it tonight , since a healthy Paul George is a fantasy monster.
Brandon Ingram – Pelicans – 11.6
He is having an incredible year and i think it will continue. If Zion is out , he is a near lock in my mind but either way , he is a solid play.
Joe Ingles – Jazz – 7.9
If you want a cheaper option in the Small Forward position , then Joe Ingles is your guy. He did not start the season well but he improved during the last months and i think ( hope ) it will continue with the restart. Against the Pelicans he is averaging 0.93 fantasy points per minute and usually gets a lot of minutes.
Anthony Davis – Lakers – 14.9
The question this season with the Lakers is always the same. Should i play LeBron or AD? You can play both if you want but if i had to choose one of them it would be AD , mainly because there are no other good solutions at the Power Forward position , especially if Zion is out. Of AD is coming with a Questionable tag but he said he will play , even if he would have to wear special goggles .
Zion Williamson – Pelicans – 11.8
As I have said multiple times before , Zion is a must for me if he plays. Everything is centered around him in the Pelicans offence and he does not shy away from any responsibility , so check the news closer to lock.
Kyle Kuzma – Lakers – 6.9
Another pick that is correlated to a player playing or not. If Davis won’t play , then Kuzma will play a bulk of minutes and usually he can produce a lot of points.
Rudy Gobert – Jazz – 11.3
Gobert is a bit pricey for my taste but there are not a lot of options in the Center position for this slate , so we have to play him. Against the Pelicans this season he is not bad ( 1.09 ) so i guess he would be an ok option.
Derrick Favors – Pelicans – 7.9
You know what i am gonna say. If Zion is out , then i would gladly play Derrick Favors. He is averaging 1.22 fantasy points per minute vs the Jazz this year and i see no reason why he would not score big again if he gets the minutes.
Joakim Noah – Clippers – 4.3
Noah last year was good enough for the Grizzlies , giving us some very good performances ( from a fantasy perspective ). I like him at this spot , because he is at the minimum wage , Clippers won’t have Harrell , Zubac is questionable and they play against the Lakers. If he gives us 18-25 points , it would be amazing and i think he can.
