What’s up everyone started back to work Monday after a short vacation and it kind of affected me being able to get these write ups out for you. I want to take a moment to say I’m always available to help on twitter either through The Sports Script twitter or my own which is @mattbell211. That’s enough talking and it’s time to take a look at some of the guys I’ll be looking at for my line up on Wednesday.
THE STUDS (I am only listing the studs that I will be considering for rosters)
Kevin Durant is in action and well he’s Kevin Durant! The price is high, but so is the upside if you want to spend he’s the top play on Wednesday for sure.
Blake Griffin has let us down a little the last two games, but now he’s back at home against the Rockets. The Rockets are 25th in defending the PF position and will need to get Terrance Jones some help to slow down Blake.
James Harden is playing some really good basketball right now and makes for a great play on Wednesday. The Clippers really struggle to defend the perimeter and Harden could light them up in this game.
NOW ONTO THE REST OF THE PLAYS
Thaddeus Young has taken over as the leader and primary scorer of the 76ers over the last two games. He’s put up over 55 points in the last 2 games and now will be up against the Orlando Magic. Thad was able to post 48 points against Orlando earlier in the year and now in his given situation I can see him going for even more against the Magic.
Mike C0nley’s price is down on most sites and with his match up against the Lakers on Wednesday I consider him one of my favorite plays. The Lakers are the 27th against the point guard and giving up 106 points per game over the last 10 games. Conley will be at home where he’s averaged close to 20 points per game this year.
Tobias Harris is the guy I expect to dominate for the Magic in a game against the 76ers. I looked at Oladipo first, but his numbers on the road compared to home scared me off of him and led me to Tobias. Tobias didn’t live up to expectations Tuesday and that will help those who decide to take the chance Wednesday. Philadelphia is ranked dead last in stopping opposing PF’s and giving up 116 points per game over the last 10. It’s obvious someone from the Magic is going to have a huge game and I like Tobias to do that.
Zach Randolph is also in a nice situation like Mike Conley on Wednesday with the Lakers coming to town. Zbo is averaging a double double on the year and should have no problem posting another one against the Lakers. He’s locked into just over 30 minutes of action and with a few down games from him should come at a price you can afford. He’s got a floor of around 24 fantasy points with a ceiling somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 fantasy points.
Goran Dragic had a really bad game a couple of games back and that has really kept his price down among his excellent play. He’s playing a ton of minutes and his on a back to back which makes me a little scared of him, but up against rookie Trey Burke he should be able to have his way. Dragic is shooting over 50% on the road and averaging slightly over 20 points per game.
AND THE VALUE GUYS TO FIT THE STUDS
James Anderson has benefited from all the trades the 76ers made by starting and playing around 30 minutes per game. The Magic are 28th against opposing SF’s where Anderson started on Monday night. He’s shooting 50% this year at home where he will be on Wednesday.
Vince Carter seems to have had some kind of flashback in life as he’s posted two games over 25 minutes going for over 36 fantasy points in each game. If he can get matched up with Eric Gordon some on Wednesday he can easily hit this mark again if the shot is falling.
E’twaun Moore is a name to keep your eyes on as Jameer Nelson was sick on Tuesday and it would surprise me if he didn’t play Wednesday. If he doesn’t go fire up Moore as the best value play out there.
