What’s up everyone? It’s Saturday and the weekend has begun for the daily fantasy world. I’m not big on the college basketball action out there, so here are my NBA plays for the Saturday slate.
Kevin Love has one game below 50 fantasy points in the last 8 games. He’s the main and only threat of real offense right now for the Wolves!
Steph Curry is just back to posting his average 40 plus fantasy point games, but he’s always worth the consideration as he could go off in any given game.
John Wall is back at home which is where I love to use him at and gets a match up against Brian Roberts. I rank Wall slightly ahead of Curry for todays studs in action.
Carmelo Anthony comes with a huge risk today after playing 50 minutes tonight, but he did post 70 fantasy points. He could be huge again, but the minutes scare me.
NOW ONTO THE REST OF THE PLAYS
Paul George is in play on Saturday and after taking a look at the Pacers stats he’s actually put up better numbers on the road while Lance Stephenson has been better at home. George is coming off a monster game where he posted 58 fantasy points, but the problem with this game is the blowout factor. George is averaging 5 more points per game this year on the road that at home.
Gordon Hayward has been kind of under the radar this season fantasy wise in my opinion. Saturday, he’ll be up against a Timberwolves team ranked pretty low in defending opposing guards. Hayward has 3 games in the last 6 over 40 fantasy points and only one real dud at 17 fantasy points. I expect him to be able to get his shot off from anywhere on the court on Saturday.
Andre Drummond had an excellent game on Friday and now gets another great match up with Dallas. Drummond is an almost lock to post a double double every time he touches the floor at home as he’s averaging 15 points and 13 rebounds per game. In 5 of the last 6 home games for Drummond he has gone over 40 fantasy points. If you don’t feel like paying up for Drummond on most sites check out what Greg Monroe is doing lately and he’s much cheaper on most sites. Monroe has put over 30 fantasy points in 4 of the last 5 games.
David Lee has been a beast with Bogut out he’s doing all the work on the inside for the Warriors. He’s posted 4 straight games of 39 of more fantasy points and should be able to do the same against Brooklyn. Brooklyn comes in ranked 24th to opposing PF’s over the last 10 games and while Lee is hot he’s a player worth riding every time out.
AND THE VALUE GUYS TO FIT THE STUDS
Tim Hardaway Jr is young and I think he’s going to be the guy to benefit from all the minutes played last night. Yes, he played a ton, but I think he’s okay to go again on Saturday and play his full allotment of minutes. He’s been solid with 3 games over 20 fantasy points.
Enes Kanter makes for a nice punt play at the center position on Saturday as the Timberwolves are banged up at the position. Kanter has had two solid games while starting including going for 50 fantasy points on Friday night.
