Do you ever wake up and say to yourself I wonder what LeBron is doing right now? Ok, maybe that’s just me. But seriously, while you and I are toiling away in our jobs, LeBron is living life/doing something. Anyway on to the picks…..
Nikola Jokic (10,500 DK) vs. the Clippers
The Joker is on a tear. The Nuggets are Number one in the Western Conference. The Clippers are not good on D, do you think Montez Harrell, Marcin Gortat or the Great Boban can cover the joker? Fire away on him!
Blake Griffin (9,200 DK) vs. the Kings
Blake Griffin smashes on the road to the tune of 47.5 fantasy points per game. His price is so/so, but with the pace of play the Kings play at, and the Bjelica/Bagley III defensive sieve at the 4, Blake Griffin (who incidentally also dated Kendall Jenner) is a great play on this slate.
Reggie Jackson (5,000 DK) vs. the Kings
He might be in a timeshare with the immortal Jose Calderon, but Reggie Jackson surely can at least give us 5x points against De’Aaron Fox and the Kings suspect D. Mr. January (sorry that’s a bad play on the other Reggie Jackson) is a good value here.
Torrey Craig (4,000 DK) versus the Clippers
While nobody expects Craig to match his out of this world performance against the Heat (39.5 Fantasy points at 3500 DK), with the minutes he is playing with Gary Harris out, Craig should be able to at least cover his cost and pave the way for more superstars elsewhere in your lineup.
Hassan Whiteside (6,800 DK) vs. the Celtics
The Celtics D is tough, and while I love the idea of paying only 6800 for Whiteside I feel like Erik Spolestra is still waiting for Chris Bosh to walk through the door and will not give Whiteside the necessary minutes to match his cost until he come to terms with it no longer being 2012.
De’Aaron Fox (7600 DK) vs. the Pistons
The aforementioned Reggie Jackson sucks at D, and the Kings pace of play is great. That being said Fox, as much as I love his flavor and quirky style, has let me down numerous times in the last few weeks and I just can’t do it anymore. Hope he proves me wrong but I’m not optimistic.Download the Free GoingFor2 App by Clicking Here...
