Players to watch
It is time now to dive into the NBA Playoffs Daily Showdown: Saturday 22/08 preview. As always, we have 4 games for tonight’s 10K main Slate but firstly, let me start by saying that you need to be aware of the news close to the start of the games because a lot of value can open up then. With that in mind, let’s get to our suggestions.
In addition, check the NBA Fantasy Strategy Guide if you are new to the game.
Malcolm Brogdon – Pacers – 10.9m
Averaging 39 minutes and 39.25 points per game. Can see no reason why he should not be in your teams at a very fair price.
Chris Paul – Thunder – 10.9m
Paul had a bad second game and expect him to bounce back tonight. He is playing very well this season and his norm is not 29 points.
Aaron Holiday – Pacers – 6.3m
Holiday is quietly having himself a series, averaging 1.07 points, and gaining minutes by the game. His price is very good, for this kind of production.
Rajon Rondo – Lakers – 5.7m
If Rondo plays, I will have some shares of him. His team needs his creativity and I am guessing – if he plays – he will play close to 20 minutes and he is a very good per minute player.
Victor Oladipo – Pacers – 8.6m
Back to his normal standards in the previous game, playing 38 minutes and scoring a little over 32 points. He seems to be getting into a rhythm and I am hoping for an increased production going forward.
Pat Connaughton – Bucks – 6.1m
He had himself a game 2 nights ago, scoring 40.75 points in 24 minutes. His minutes are the same per game, the problem is his production is not as steady but, after a performance like that, he is worth a flyer.
Jimmy Butler – Heat – 11.6m
Butler has been very aggressive this series and the Heat, in general, look like the better team out of the two. He had 48 and 38 points in each of the two games and he is fairly priced at 11.6m.
Khris Middleton – Bucks – 10.7m
Middleton has been bad in these 2 games, averaging 0.76 points per minute. This is not him, though, he is a 1.21 points per minute player, so I expect a big performance out of him soon.
Danilo Gallinari – Thunder – 9.1m
He is averaging 34 minutes and has 32 points per game. Playing against the Rockets gives him the opportunity to grab more rebounds and that is something that I like but in general, Gallinari has a good floor but not a very high ceiling.
Giannis Antetokounmpo – Bucks – 16.6m
Do I really need to say anything to convince you to draft Giannis in as many teams as you can?
Anthony Davis – Lakers – 14.9m
In the first game of the series, he had 52.25 points in 40 minutes. In the second game, he had 55.25 in just 30 minutes. Now, if we get that kind of Davis, in a close game, we are looking at a potential monster night.
Jae Crowder – Heat – 7.6m
He is a risky play but his minutes are secure around the 25-minute mark and his floor is safe, close to 25 points.
Nikola Vucevic – Magic – 13.0m
56.5 points per game against the Bucks and I don’t believe that this will change throughout the series. He cannot win the Bucks by himself but he can give us a lot points trying.
Myles Turner – Pacers – 9.5m
Finally, a good Turner game in the bubble and if you remember, he ended up in the winning lineup. Now, how about some consistency?
Hassan Whiteside – Blazers – 7.2m
He is going to get minutes against the Lakers, due to the way the Lakers are constructed, so I am not afraid about that. I am concerned about his fouls but at 7.2m, he is too cheap to pass up.
