I’m pretty sure daily fantasy NBA is going to give me a stroke. I mean James Harden is out….wait no he might play…. lineups lock….he’s out. How am I suppose to deal with that nightly which seems what is going on lately. If it’s not James Harden it will be someone else we are waiting on news for nightly. Okay I’m done with that rant and ready to move on to the guys that I’ll be looking to roster on Wednesday.
Kevin Durant is amazing he’s been over 50 fantasy points in all of the last 6 games and over 60 in 5 of those. If you don’t roster him you are putting yourself at a severe disadvantage right now.
Lebron James is really good, but right now he’s not Kevin Durant when it comes to fantasy stats. That being said I’ve got a feeling he’s going to be out to 1 up Durant in this match up against each other. He’s cheaper and I would just recommend throwing him in one game somewhere in case he does go crazy.
Kevin Love is going to be missing his partner inside in Pekovic, so he should be able to grab a few more rebounds to increase his total. He’s slowed down a bit fantasy wise and if you can get him at a discounted price he should be rostered on Wednesday.
Anthony Davis will be on the other side of the Kevin Love play now and just as Durant and James are. Davis is back at home on Wednesday after a road game Tuesday and he’s been better at home this year. He’s probably the cheaper of the studs, but he’s capable of having a big game.
NOW ONTO THE REST OF THE PLAYS
Blake Griffin is just right out of the stud category for me and that is probably fueled by own personal dislike of him, but that’s another story. He’s a very solid play on Wednesday against a Washington team that is ranked 25th against the power forward position. Griffin is shooting close to 55% at home this year and has posted better numbers there. He’s been over 30 fantasy points in but a handful of games all year.
Kyle Lowry almost feels like a guy I should put in the stud column right now, but he’s just not there quite yet. I will roster him in 100% of my line ups if Derozan is out and may do so even if he plays. Lowry draws a Magic team giving up the 2nd most points in the NBA over the last 10 games and has gone over 50 fantasy points in 2 of his last 3 games. Lowry does a little bit of everything to rack up the fantasy points and even had 5 steals in the last game.
Goran Dragic will be up against a Bucks team that is ranked 25th in stopping the opposing point guard position. Dragic is consistently going over 30 fantasy points game in and game out right now without Eric Bledsoe. Dragic is shooting close to 50% on the road this year and will be a solid play against anyone the Bucks throw at him.
Al Jefferson has become one of the most consistent and dominant centers in fantasy basketball over the last few games. He’s been over 35 fantasy points in each of the last 9 games he’s played and is logging heavy minutes playing almost 38 minutes per game. He’s almost a lock for a double double with 5 in the last 6 games which should be an easy task against a Denver team that struggles inside.
Trevor Ariza has been extremely solid as of late posting 30 or more fantasy points in each of the last 5 games. Ariza is actually shooting better on the road this year at almost 47%. He’s up against a Clippers team that is ranked 24th in defending the small forward position. I like him in all formats on Wednesday to hit value.
Zach Randolph should be in a position to dominate the Kings without Demarcus Cousins in the game. Cousins is doubtful for the game and I don’t think it matters who they try to throw at Zbo he should have his way with them. Zach has had some bad games, but the ceiling you get in rostering him for his price on most sites is pretty high.
AND THE VALUE GUYS TO FIT THE STUDS
Gerald Wallace makes for a very solid value play on Wednesday as the Celtics will be up against the 76ers. Wallace is logging huge minutes and if Rondo doesn’t go I think you can bump him up for even a few more for the Celtics as they will have to play bigger. Wallace is shooting 55% at home and is priced cheap enough he should hit value on most sites.
Shelvin Mack should be in line for another start on Wednesday and was pretty solid on Monday. He posted 31 fantasy points in 31 minutes of action on Monday and should be able to produce value against Brandon Jennings.
Terrance Ross probably isn’t going to put 70 fantasy points again ever! He’s still going to be a decent bet to hit value though with his ability to shoot the basketball. If you can get Ross still at a decent value make sure you lock him into your line up.
