Recap: We gave you 5 names as bargain options for Saturday but only two did come up decent. Troy Brown was above-average (16 points, two rebounds, five assists, 1 steal) while Jerami Grant (13 points, four rebounds, 1 ast, 1 steal, 1 block) and Jordan Clarkson were solid (13 points, three assists, 2 steals).
Now, here’s another 5 names to consider as bargains for Sunday’s six-game slate:
1.) Elfrid Payton, PG, New York Knicks
Yahoo: $18; DraftKings: $4,400
Payton has evidently locked the PG minutes for himself and while he has limitations, he is far and away the best option at the position. He played a total of 57 minutes in his past two games and produced quite nicely– 15 points, four rebounds, 4.5 dimes, and a steal per game in that span.
He continues to come off the bench but it sure looks like coach Mike Miller trusts him more especially in late-game situations. That makes him a nice option to me especially at DraftKings.
2.) Cody Zeller, C, Charlotte Hornets
Yahoo: $11; DraftKings: $4,900
At worst, Zeller is a lock for 20-FP a night. Not too much, but his salary makes him a value play, especially if you’re looking to add the AD’s and JoJo’s of the world.
Charlotte is a two-headed monster at C right now and while Bismack Biyombo can potentially be a double-double threat, Zeller has the upper hand in consistency in the past six games with an average of around 26 FP.
3.) Marquese Chriss, PF/C, Golden State Warriors
Yahoo: $15; DraftKings: $5,100
Back-to-back double-doubles for the high-flying former lottery pick, but can he keep it up? No one knows but I’ll sure be interested to find out.
In addition to the consecutive double-doubles, Chriss has a total of seven blocks plus steals over the past two games.
4.) Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings
Yahoo: $16; DraftKings: $4,400
He’s not the same guy he was before the injury but his minutes are trending upward although his other numbers are not there yet. He has scored in double-digits in the last four games while playing at least 28 minutes in each.
That said, I like the matchup against the lowly Warriors, and maybe we can see Bogie become the high-usage sixth man off the bench for Luke Walton once again.
5.) Terrence Ross, SG/SF, Orlando Magic
Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $4,500
T-Ross relies too much on his scoring to have value but against New Orleans, I feel good betting on him. According to NBA.com/stats, New Orleans is the fourth-worst in the league in Opponents FGM and allows the fifth most treys to its opponents with 13.
Sounds like a viable game for Ross to capitalize.
Other notes: Jerami Grant is still a very fine option here at PF with Paul Millsap already rule out. I’d like to think Alec Burks should be included here but his salary is up to $6,100, which I think is fair, but totally not a bargain.
