Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks
Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.

Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers are headed to the playoffs and Ben Simmons is a big reason why. The seven-foot point guard is practically averaging a triple-double over the past month, putting up 12.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 10.8 assists during that stretch. And speaking of triple-doubles, Simmons has collected 7 of them in the past 11.
Philadelphia will be facing the lowly Nets and will be without Joel Embiid to close out the season so in Ben we should trust.

1. Shabazz Napier, PG, Portland Trail Blazers
Napier has filled in nicely for the injured Damian Lillard the last three games and has recorded at least 35 Fantasy Points in the last four and had 11 points, 5 rebounds, and six assists against Chicago.
2. Bogdan Bogdanovic, SF, Sacramento Kings
With averages of 12.3 points, 5.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds with defensive numbers in the past 3 games, it looks like Bogdanovic will be a very good streamline pick for weeks to come.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,300)
The "Greek Freak" is in the conversation of being the best basketball fantasy player right now, so why not? Plus, the Bucks are going to catch Boston on the second night of a back to back. Needless to say, things are going to be looking real good for owners who'll spend big money on Giannis.
Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($7,600)
For some reason, nobody is talking big about Andre Drummond in fantasy circles. His ADP Read More

DeMar DeRozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($8,000)
Everything is exposed in the playoffs and unless DeMar DeRozan finds ways to expand his range or create for others, I don't think the high-scoring guard is a wise investment at $8,000. His rebounding numbers may even be just a fluke.
At this point, teammate Kyle Lowry may be a better option (though at a slightly higher price) having seen his last performance. However, if you want the bang for your Read More

Kemba Walker, PG, Charlotte Hornets ($7,900)
There's no other Russell Westbrook, but in the past few games, Walker is doing his best Russ impression. And at a less than $3,000 price tag, he is worth every penny.
In the past three games, Walker averaged over 53 fantasy points that culminated in a 61-FP performance vs the Toronto Raptors. The Hornets draw Cleveland in their next game, but I doubt the Cavs defense could do something against Read More
