The Tuesday slate was pretty sad compared to what we have for Wednesday. There a ton of studs in play for us to choose from and it’s going to take some skill to pull of the big win with the right roster placement. There are 12 games in play on Wednesday and while I’ve listed some options that I like on Wednesday there are still several other guys up for discussion that are roster worthy. Lets take a look at some of the guys I’ll be playing on Wednesday.
THE ELITE STUDS
Kevin Love – Love has had a few bad games lately for his standards, but he’s eventually going to explode for one of his huge fantasy games and now might be the time to play him while his salary is down.
Steph Curry – He’s had a few down to earth games recently, but as always with Curry he can explode for a 70 fantasy point night at anytime.
Lebron James – James doesn’t put up huge fantasy numbers for his relatively high price tag, but he has gone for over 4o of more fantasy points in 7 of his last 10 and is almost a lock to go over that mark in this one.
James Harden – The Pelicans not only have an ugly mascot, but they also have ugly rating against opposing SG’s. Harden has gone over 40 fantasy points in 5 of the last 5 games including 3 games over 50 fantasy points.
Demarcus Cousins – Cousins is now going with the elite studs as he impressed and won me over on Tuesday night against the Pacers. He’s got an easier match up on Wednesday against the Timberwolves and will for sure find his way into some of my line ups.
Lamarcus Aldridge – He’s a beast is all I can say. I thought about putting him in the next category, but he’s posted less than 30 fantasy points in only 1 game all year. I look for him to abuse the Cavs on the inside on Wednesday.
NOW ONTO THE REST OF THE PLAYS
Al Jefferson put up a season high 35 points in Tuesday game and now gets a match up with a Philadelphia team that is ranked last in stopping opposing centers over the last 10 games. Jefferson has actually been a little better on the road this year shooting 47% as opposed to only 43% at home.
Damian Lillard has some ugly game longs if you look at them as a whole. He’s had back to back games of 25 fantasy points after putting up 59 in the one before those. He’s going to have a very nice match up on Wednesday against a Cavaliers team coming in on a back to back. I would put a floor on Lillards fantasy points of being around that 25 point mark, but he also has a celing of around 60 if he gets hot.
Michael Carter Williams is posting solid fantasy games by contributing in every statistical category. He has fantasy point totals all over the board, but he hasn’t finished below 20 fantasy points in any game this year, making him a great cash game play.
David Lee put up 42 fantasy points the last time he played the Nuggets and now gets them again on Wednesday. Lee is shooting 54% at home this year and is a pretty consistent fantasy player making him a great cash game play in this contest.
Tony Parker is pretty cheap around the industry and has posted 3 straight games over 30 fantasy points. Utah’s Trey Burke will have the assignment of guarding him on Wednesday and I expect Parker to abuse him. Parker will be at home where he has shot 53% this year.
Thaddeus Young has posted over 30 fantasy points in 9 of the last 10 games, but does have an ugly 9 fantasy point game in there. He’s more than likely not going to put up just 9 fantasy points against a Charlotte team that ranks dead last in defending the PF.
AND THE VALUE GUYS TO FIT THE STUDS
Bradley Beal is going to be one of my sneaky GPP plays on Wednesday as the shooting guard position has been killing the Heat over the past few games. Beal’s price has fallen, but he’s sure to get 30 minutes of action and has put up over 25 fantasy points in each of his last 4 games.
Gerald Green is shooting a full 6% better at home than on the road and now gets to face the Lakers horrid defense on Wednesday. The Lakers are 2nd to last in defending the opposing SG in the last 3 games.
Brian Roberts is playing over 30 minutes per game and is matched up with a poor defensive back court in Houston. He’s posted 30 and 25 fantasy point totals in his last two games.
Patrick Patterson has been given an opportunity in Toronto and seems to be embracing the role. He’s played over 20 minutes in 4 of the last 5 games and has reached at least 20 fantasy points going over 30 twice in those contests.
Khris Middelton is questionable for the Bucks at Memphis. I’m not sure there is any value in this unless you want to gamble on someone.
If Pau Gasol seems healthy coming out of Tuesday’s contest then he might be a guy I’ll target on Wednesday. That is a situation worth monitoring as the day goes on.
