Blazers vs Grizzlies 15/08 – Preview

Firstly, we will present important picks for every slate here in our blog to help you choose your team.

Slate Review

Let’s see the winner of yesterday’s slate

What a crazy slate that was yesterday ! Affectum had Harden , who played enought to give him 51.75 points but the difference was 2% owned Johnson , that gave him 40.5 points and a 2% also , Embiid that played ( when he just shouldn’t ) and had 24.5 points. Well done – again – Affectum.

Players to watch

Let’s dive into the Blazers vs Grizzlies 15/08 – Preview. Firstly , let me start by saying that we have a pursuit type of slate , so that means that not only we have to find the highest scorers in the game but also at the lowest price.Secondly, we will need to select also a captain and a vice captain for the game.Now, on to our suggestions.

Point Guards

In addition, check the NBA Fantasy Strategy Guide if you are new to the game.

Damian Lillard – Blazers – 16.1m

Lillard is the hottest player in the NBA right now and we just cannot avoid him. He is of course in consideration for both captain spots but he will eat a lot of the bonus points , since he is the most expensive option on the slate by 4m!

Ja Morant – Grizzlies – 11.9m

In what it would be the biggest game of his career so far, Morant has to lead his team into the playoffs. He does not shy away from a challenge and i am expecting a big game out of him. Would be a good option for both captain spots.

Shooting Guards

CJ McCollum – Blazers – 11.1m

He had 50 points against the Grizzlies in the beggining of the bubble and also , had only 1 game below 30 points. Safe floor and could be a good contrarian choice for the captain spot.

Dillon Brooks – Grizzlies – 9.5m

He likes to shoot and the Grizzlies let him shoot a lot. If he is on a good day he can give us 40+ points. Will it be tomorrow a good day though?

Gary Trent Jr. – Blazers – 7.6m

Basically, a cheaper version of Brooks. He is playing a lot of minutes and he is shooting a lot. He has the potential of big games but has cooled off in the last 3 in the bubble ( 18.4 points avg )

Small Forwards

Don’t even bother looking here…

Power Forwards

Carmelo Antony – Blazers – 8.8m

He had 32.25 points in their previous game and has 29.1 points average in the bubble. The biggest advantage of rostering Melo is the potential of getting a 35+ points night , something that makes him a good choice for the captain positions also.

Brandon Clarke – Grizzlies

Clarke is not playing well in the bubble but his best game came against the Blazers with 38.75 points. A repeat of that will almost guarantee that the winning lineup will have him inside.


Jonas Valanciunas – Grizzlies – 10.7m

Had a triple double in the last game and 72.25 points. We are talking for final for the Grizzlies , so i am expecting them to have Valanciunas on the court , as much as possible and when he plays over 30 minutes he averages 49.7 points per game. We just cannot ingore that.

Hassan Whiteside – Blazers – 6.3m

In the last 2 games he had 17.5 minutes and 29.9 fantasy points. This is an amazing production and i would prefer rostering him at 6.3m and taking a chance then playing Nurkic at 12.1m!
