March 9, 2016– DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
Nine games and here we are:
Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF ($8,700)
I don’t want to put The Greek Freak in here because I have to write his whole name down, but he’s probably the best SF in fantasy for the last couple of weeks. In the past 10 games, Giannis had 4 games where he had at least 65.75 fantasy points. He had three triple-doubles during that time and flirted with it for a couple times more.
Kemba Walker, PG ($8,300)
Kemba has been on fire lately, getting at least 50 points in three of the past four. Heat check? Why not.
The Middle Men
Jabari Parker, PF ($6,300)
Along with Antetokounmpo’s rise, he brought several of his teammates with him. One of them was Jabari Parker. Last year’s second overall pick is good for 36 FP in the past 10 days.
Devin Booker, SG ($5,300)
Booker has been drowning with minutes and that increases his potential as a reliable fantasy option at SG. He has averaged 37.3 minutes in the last 5 games, he has topped 40 points twice and pretty solid in one. At that salary, it’s easy to roll the dice with the youngster.
Al Jefferson, C ($4,800)
Here’s a guarantee: Big Al won’t be playing in the 20’s for so long. He won’t get stuck in the 20-FP range for so long. New Orleans is the 5th worst in the league in stopping opposing centers so I like the guy’s chances here.
JaMychal Green, PF ($4,500)
The Grizzlies are severely undermanned at their big man positions with Marc Gasol out and Chris Andersen hurt. Ryan Hollins can play but he nowhere has the offensive game of Green. His last game was phenomenal, putting up 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists against Cleveland no less. If he can get his confidence flowing, he will show against a smallish Boston Celtics frontcourt.
