Congratulations if you played Klay Thompson yesterday! He put up 60 actual points and 63.9 fantasy points in just 29 minutes of game time – crazy!
I’ve done my research and provided who I think could be the Klay Thompson of Wednesday’s slate of NBA, helping you construct your team for the huge $12,000 Wednesday Swish!
John Wall – $8,600
Wall has scored under 40 points in just one of his last ten games and carries in some excellent form to his game against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. He’s racking up plenty of assists with games of 13, 15 and 15 in his last three and is nailing his shots too. Wall should be your first choice at point guard tomorrow if you’re looking to spend up.
George Hill – $3,500
Currently listed as questionable, keep an eye on George Hill on Wednesday morning for more news. If he’s named to play against the Suns, lock him in your team instantly. He’s a big chance for 30+ points from minimum salary, and you can never ignore opportunities like these. Take care though regarding his availability.
Dwyane Wade – $5,900
How is D-Wade’s salary this low? He’s averaging 37.4 over his last five games and 34 over his last ten – both of these figures are well upwards of 5x value from $5,900 salary. This is an important game for the Bulls after coming off losses to Dallas and Portland, and they’ll be relying on the likes of Wade to avoid three losses in a row.
Troy Daniels -$3,500
Troy Daniels, my old boy from the Rockets, has been lighting up from deep over his last four games and is averaging close to 30 fantasy points over his last four games. This is ridiculous value for a player who costs minimum price. Ride the Daniels train while it’s hot because it likely won’t last forever, or even until next week. At $3,500, though, it’s hard to pass up a chance for extreme returns in a tournament.
Gordon Hayward – $7,100
Gordon Hayward has seriously lifted over the course of his last seven games and hasn’t scored under 5x value from $7,100 in this time and is averaging 37 through his last ten games. I love teams playing against the Suns, and that’s who Hayward and the Jazz face up against tomorrow.
PJ Tucker – $4,100
While not the most attractive selection at small forward, PJ Tucker has quietly strung together a nice run of games, scoring at least 21 in his last three. Like Daniels mentioned before, this run from Tucker likely won’t last forever, and this is the type of performance we want to ride until it drops off. $4,100 is an affordable investment and helps get in some elite players from other positions.
Serge Ibaka – $5,900
Serge Ibaka is probably still slipping under the fantasy radar – but that’s awesome for us! He’s on an absolute tear and is averaging 34 fantasy points over his last five games. He’s coming off a huge 48.4 game against the Pistons and will be looking to keep up his red-hot form against the Washington Wizards in what’s expected to be a close game on Wednesday!
Richaun Holmes – $3,500
Want the sneakiest play of the day? It’s gotta be Richaun Holmes! Holmes should see loads of game time with both Embiid and Okafor missing Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies in Memphis. Holmes has put together some beautiful fantasy games when playing 20+ minutes and has looked impressive at the same time.
Hassan Whiteside – $8,800
Upstaging the many bargain bin players that have been mentioned today, Hassan Whiteside is a top-tier option worth locking in! Whiteside is the type of high-level selection that can carry your team to a tournament win, especially when he is putting up 50+ points from $8,800 like he has done in three of his last four games. He’s grabbing 14.9 rebounds per game to go with 2.6 blocks this season and demands consideration against the Knicks!
Rudy Gobert – $6,500
Looking for someone a little more affordable? Rudy Gobert costs $2,300 less than Whiteside but has been stringing together some excellent fantasy scores over his last seven games. Gobert has the potential to score upwards of 40 fantasy points against the Suns, but I’d definitely be leaning Whiteside if I had the cash spare at the centre position.
Thanks for reading and good luck!
