NeoGamer's Rapid Fire Takes

Break The Bank

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,500) has been excellent this season but is priced a bit too much tonight when you can get Westbrook at a $1,300 discount.

Russell Westbrook ($11,200) is still producing massive fantasy numbers, but is less likely to explode in the upside department with a much better supporting cast.

Andre Drummond ($8,200) showed he can produce big even when his shot is not falling against the Warriors, so the sky is the limit tonight in a matchup where he should score a ton.

Middle of the Road

Thaddeus Young ($5,200) can produce big when the defensive stats are there and could potentially have a massive workload with Sabonis is unable to suit up tonight.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson ($5,500) can produce across all categories, but can also bust in a big way even in a great matchups.

Reggie Jackson ($6,000) is no longer in a timeshare with Ish and has been a very consistent fantasy producer this season.

T.J. Warren ($5,200) has the highest usage rate behind Booker and will have a matchup to thrive in tonight against the Nets.

Lonzo Ball ($7,000) has very little shooting ability right now, but could have some tournament appeal if he can avoid the defense of Avery Bradley.

Tobias Harris ($6,900) has been taking a lot of shots this season, but his game to game production is so unpredictable he is hard to trust in a cash game format.

Domantas Sabonis ($5,700) has been showing up a big for his team lately with Turner out and is a great play tonight if he is 100%.

Avery Bradley ($5,700) has been showing back up in the defensive department lately which means he might be a steal (no pun attended) at this price against the Lakers.

Victor Oladipo ($7,700) has enjoyed a massive usage rate this season and will have a great opportunity so smash against the lowly Kings tonight.

Devin Booker ($7,900) has a huge usage rate now that Bledsoe has removed himself from the picture, so he is the safest lock for fantasy production tonight in the best matchup.

Darren Collison ($6,000) has shown some big game potential this season, but a majority of his outings have been of the mediocre variety. Has Revenge factor though working in his favor.

Cheapskate Value Heaven

Tyson Chandler ($4,100) continues to get more minutes then he should, so he is viable for cash games due to his rebounding ability.

Marquese Chriss ($4,100) is way down the totem pole when it comes to getting shots on this team, but his athletic ability could play big in an uptempo matchup.

George Hill ($4,300) has the revenge factor working in his favor tonight against the Pacers, but Fox continues to cut into his playing time limiting upside.

Alex Len ($4,800) continues to play second fiddle to Chandler, but has the ability to produce fantasy points quickly especially in a great matchup like tonight.

Buddy Hield ($4,300) has not lived up to expectations, but continues to get enough offensive looks to potentially pay off a low salary in a great matchup.

Trevor Booker ($4,900) can post big numbers in rebounds and points in limited court time and will have a great matchup this evening.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($4,800) cant hit the broadside of a barn recently, but maybe a revenge game can get him back on track.

Spencer Dinwiddie ($5,100) will have to deal with minutes being basically split down the middle but has overcome that issue in a big way in a handful of outings this season.

One Man’s Garbage is another Man’s Treasure

Dragan Bender ($3,400) has seen his minutes on the rise with a new coach and will be playing in a high scoring environment.

Bojan Bogdanovic ($4,000) starts but needs the shots from long range to hit, but could crush value if they are falling

Joe Harris ($3,100) hits three point jumpers and not much else, but could be useful again if Carroll is out.

Tyler Ulis ($4,000) has value again with no Bledsoe, but will have to get things done quickly in a near timeshare with Mike James.

John Henson ($4,100) probably wont start, but has the ability to post big lines in limited court time despite a somewhat less favorable matchup.

Ish Smith ($3,300) wont see big minutes, but there is potential in a matchup against the Lakers.

Timofey Mozgov ($3,000) saw his most minutes on the season last game and with even more injuries in frontcourt could potentially produce in a good matchup.

Al Jefferson ($3,600) is past his prime, but with the frontcourt getting potentially even thinner tonight he could be productive at this price tag.
