Another day another fantasy team to be made. There are 5 great games available and a chance to take home a shared 6k prize. Here are a few tips on some played to keep an eye out for, always check final teams before submitting your team for late outs.
Kyrie Irving – $8,200 – (CLE)
Irving is averaging 37 fp but has current form of 45 fp. coming off 32 pts, 4 assists and 3 rebounds in a win against the Nets scoring 45.6 fp backing up his 58 verse the Celtics. Irving has a good matchup coming up against the Phoenix Suns and there young guards.
Patrick Beverley -$5,300 (HOU)
Beverley has come back into the lineup after a brief injury, he’s back to good form in a high offence powered Rockets team. Form of 31 fp, coming off 11 pts, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals vs the Thunder scoring 28.1 fp. Also scoring 35.3 fp vs the Magic. At just over 5k why not give him a shot.
James Harden $12,200 (HOU)
Harden is averaging 53.3 fp right now and is equal favourite for the MVP. Harden only had 14 pts and 10 rebounds (33.4fp) verse the magic which is his lowest score in a staggering 18 games, rarely has back to back poor games.
Tony Allen- $4,400 (MEM)
Allen is coming off one of his best performances for Grizzlies, scoring 11 pts, 12 rebounds, 6 steals and 3 assists scoring 39 fp verse the Warriors. The win and good performance is encouraging seeing as Allen has started to get more minutes.
Kevin Durant -$10,000 (GSW)
Probably the best performing Warrior at this moment, averaging 46.6 fp and putting up 27 pts, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals vs the Grizzlies (50.6). Durant has hit the free throw line 21 times in two games, this is an added bonus to his scoring ability if he’s not draining 3’s.
Aaron Gordon $4,400 (ORL)
Going with a younger player as another option, very cheap but consistent starter for the Magic, Gordon has been in good from lately (34fp) coming off 15pts and 10 rebounds vs the Hawks (28) but has scored 35.7, 28, 38.2 in 3 games, good option to save some salary.
Kevin Love- $8,300 (CLE)
Averaging 38 fp and has been in consistent form lately, scoring 31, 38,30, and 51 in the last 4 games battling illness as well. Putting up 17 pts, 13 rebounds and 2 assists verse the Nets. Still at a good price for a top Centre that can explode on any given day.
Julius Randle- $6,300 (LAL)
Randle has battled through some injury concerns to be one of the Lakers higher scoring fantasy players, form of 39.4 fp. in the last 4 games Randle has scored 30.7, 35.3, 52.3 and 42.8. Against a young Magic team Randle could be in his element and dominate the game. When Lakers play well Randle is a top performer.
DeMarcus Cousins – $10,500 (SAC)
I struggle not to pick Cousins each week, the big man is probably the best Centre in the game. Averaging 48 fp this season and coming off 25 pts, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks in an all round performance against the Clippers scoring 54.7. If you want any reason to pick him look at his form (49.2, 47.8, 50.6, 50.9 and 57.9.
