PF—Julius Randle ($6,100)
The Los Angeles Lakers are an absolute train wreck of a basketball team right now as they are a mere 9-39 on the season and have more problems throughout the organization than you can count on two hands (and maybe two feet, as well). However, second-year power forward Julius Randle has come on strong as of late and, assuming that the Lakers keep him heavily involved in the rotation regardless of if he starts anymore or not, he has a great matchup against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday night.
Randle has been tearing it up from a fantasy perspective as of late, even with the Lakers suffering through a nine-game losing streak. Randle has been at 28.5 fantasy points in DraftKings scoring or better in five out of his last seven games, which includes going for 31.75 fantasy points or better in four of his last seven outings. Even better, his low over this stretch was merely 23.75 fantasy points, which is a relatively high floor for DFS production.
The Hornets frontcourt has been ravaged by injuries this season and the maladies only continue to pile up elsewhere on the roster as well. Randle should have a tremendous advantage to show off his offensive talent and continue to be a force on the glass. I like him to have a big night and far exceed his valuation.
