Not as many games on the schedule today as we’d like, but this should be a really interesting week considering all the injuries that have been going down.
G – E’Twaun Moore at Washington
Could get another start if Jameer Nelson is out. You’ll want to double check about 1 hour prior to game time to see if Nelson is playing. Don’t start him if Nelson is playing.
G – Patrick Beverley – Aaron Brooks at Utah
Okay, so Beverley looks like the guy that the coaches like now with Jeremy Lin out … Brooks played good when Harden was out, but he & Harden (2 ball hogs) don’t really mix too well, so I’d lean toward Beverley … but this one could be a blowout so Brooks could see run too.
G – Martell Webster vs Orlando
Still cheaper than Bradley Beal, who’s hurt so I’ve got to have my boy Martell on the list. I’ve even picked him up in season-long formats since he’s a good source of 3’s.
G/F – Cartier Martin at San Antonio
Got the start last game with Kyle Korver out – and Korver is expected to be out again tonight. He’s still a risky play but he’s cheap.
F/C – Ryan Anderson at Chicago
I remember getting laughed at for having Anderson on may season-long fantasy teams for the last few years. Guys just don’t realize how butter this guy’s stroke is. He’s probably better off the bench against a team with a good big, but Chicago’s a little like so he should be good to roll & he’s not. He’s not cheap and not a sleeper, just want you to be aware that he’s a mid-priced guy with 40+ fantasy point upside now.
F/C – Jason Smith at Chicago
Okay, here’s the sleeper that could benefit from Anthony Davis being out. I called out Smith earlier in the season, but have stayed away from him as he’s gotten cold. He’s going to be asked to step into a bigger role so we’ll see how he does. Should be pretty cheap on most sites since he hasn’t done much lately.
