We’ve got 10 games on the slate for Wednesday and it’s a very interesting slate of games. I can say I like these type of nights there are no Lebron, Durant, 76ers, or Lakers to choose from. Let’s take a look at the guys I’ll be taking into consideration for Wednesday.
THE STUDS (I am only listing the studs that I will be considering for rosters)
John Wall has 4 straight games over 45 fantasy points and has become a really consistent fantasy option. Wall is averaging 21 points per game while dishing out 9 assists per game this year at home.
Kevin Love at this point is a guy I’m not sure I can fade. He’s played over 38 minutes in 3 straight games and went for over 60 fantasy points in two of the last 3. He’s a lock for a double double and posted 59 fantasy points in his last match up with the Knicks earlier this year.
Demarcus Cousins gets the match up with the awful front court of the Bucks on Wednesday and I sure hope he does better than what Derek Favors did for us on Monday. Cousins should be able to do whatever he wants on the inside versus the Bucks.
NOW ONTO THE REST OF THE PLAYS
Paul George just misses going in the stud section for me, but here he is anyway and he’s a guy I really like on Wednesday. Charlotte is 22nd against SF and George has been better this year on the road than at home. George has averaged 25 points per game this year on the road which is 5 more than what he has at home. George has been pretty consistent as of late as well going over 37 fantasy points in all of the last 7 games.
Jeff Teague makes an appearance in the plays today about two nights to late, but we can only look at what he’s done and hope that carries over for us on Wednesday. He’s got a decent match up with Portland whose ranked 24th over the last 10 games at defending the PG position. Teague has been over 40 fantasy points in 4 straight games including going over 50 in the last game against a good defender in Goran Dragic.
Nicolas Batum is playing really well right now and he makes for a nice play on a site like FanDuel where you must have a true SF player. Atlanta struggles to defend the wing positions and are 25th over the last 10 games at defending opposing SFs. Batum does just a little bit of everything to fill up the stats and has grabbed over 15 rebounds in back to back games.
Kenneth Faried could be sneaky good on Wednesday as he’s playing against Dallas who just happen to be 29th against opposing PF’s over the last 10 games. Faried is a better player at home where he’s posting 4 points and 2 rebounds more per game than on the road. He’s had back to back games over 30 fantasy points and seems locked into around 30 minutes of action and is also pretty well priced around the industry.
Zach Randolph has back to back games with a double double and now looks to carry that on against the weak front court of Brooklyn. The Nets are 24th over the last 10 against PF’s and ZBo is in a zone. He’s a streaky player and is priced fairly decent, so I like him as a cash game play on Wednesday. Randolph has a floor of around 25 fantasy points with a ceiling that could go somewhere around 50 fantasy points.
AND THE VALUE GUYS TO FIT THE STUDS
Kevin Martin is reasonably priced around most sites after his recent injury. He’s not a bottom dollar option by no means, but the type of production he can give you for the price makes him a decent value.
Elton Brand is about 50 years old I think, but he’s posting fantasy numbers over 30 points per game, so whiles he’s cheap he has to be considered. He’s got a very tough match up, so make sure you get him cheap as I can see him biting the fantasy players at some point.
