Terry Rozier $4,200
Terry Rozier averaged 42.1 fantasy points over his last three starts, with two massive games of 55.2 and 46.4. With Kyrie out again today, Rozier is set to take the reigns against Chicago, which bodes well for fantasy success. At his price, it’s tough to ignore Rozier today.
Goran Dragic $7,100
Goran Dragic against the Phoenix defence is a matchup I really like. His form hasn’t been great, which makes me worry about playing him in cash games, but for tournament games the potential is high and he might be undervalued (due to his form). You also can’t forget that this is his former team, so he always has a chip on his shoulder with something to prove. He had 44.8 the last time he played the Suns, and he seems likely to want to repeat that performance against the team that once traded him.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope $6,200
The Lakers have been on a run of late, and so has KCP. Over the last 6 games, KCP is averaging 37 fantasy points and played as many as 43 minutes in his last game. KCP is prone to these runs, but if it continues for a few more games, he will provide you with a lot of value.
Victor Oladipo $10,200
Victor Oladipo has been in great form lately and has averaged almost 38 minutes in his last three games with a usage of more than 30. With Darren Collison out, he spends more time on the ball and he is making the most of those chances. Against the Bucks, Oladipo seems very likely to provide another strong score.
LeBron James $12,400
LeBron James has been on a roll since the Cavs blew up their squad. Evidently, the vibe around the Cavs is better, but LeBron still needs to bring everything he has for the team to have a chance at winning. Over the last 11 games, he’s averaging 29 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists on 54, 39 and 68 splits. Those numbers are ridiculous, and it doesn’t seem like slowing down. LeBron has a lot to play for, including playoff seeds and a potential late run at MVP (although that seems likely).
Josh Richardson $6,300
Josh Richardson has been on a nice run, averaging almost 36 points in the last 5 games. He’s also bringing that form into a matchup with the league’s worst guard defence. Given his form and the matchup, Richardson seems like a great play in all fantasy formats.
Blake Griffin $7,600
Blake Griffin hasn’t been in the greatest form since his move to Detroit, but at his price, he makes a great tournament play. He’s not consistently pulling big scores, but he’s capable of putting up 40+, just like he did in his most recent game with 43.8. He played 36 minutes in that most recent game, with 6 assists and a usage of 29. Those are all trends that point to big-time fantasy potential in a good matchup against the (defensively) struggling Cavs.
Rudy Gobert $8,700
Rudy Gobert’s return has really sparked the Jazz, mostly due to his impact on defense. However, his last 2 games have been incredible on both ends, with 60.7 and 50.4 fantasy point games. Gobert is cleaning the glass, swatting shots, and finishing almost everything at the rim. With a great matchup against Nikola Vucevic and the Magic, there should be just as many rebounds, blocked shots, and dunks as always for Gobert, which should mean another huge fantasy score.
