High Salary C
Draymond Green – Golden State Warriors ($8100): As I mentioned earlier, Draymond has averaged 52 FP per game over two contests this season against Houston, and he missed a triple-double by one assist in one of those games. He obviously loves the matchup and the pace will be fast tonight with a ton of fantasy points there for the taking. I love Draymond tonight.
Karl-Anthony Towns – Minnesota Timberwolves ($10100): Towns is a good call against Indiana because they are a weak rebounding team and they aren’t that good defensively. Towns is one of the best big men in the league and he’s coming off a poor outing against Portland. The pace for this game isn’t the fastest, but I think Towns will have every opportunity to post a huge number.
Dwight Howard – Atlanta Hawks ($7600): Dwight hasn’t had a really big game in a while and maybe that’s just not in him at this time of the year. But I know the Hawks badly need to win their remaining games and with Paul Millsap still out Dwight is the main big man for the Hawks. He also gets a nice matchup against the Suns, and Dwight likes it Western Conference-style. I don’t think 50 FP is an unreasonable total for him tonight.
Andre Drummond – Detroit Pistons ($7400): Drummond has simply throttled the Heat this year averaging just under 56 FP against them over three games. Detroit did play last night but it’s hard to ignore his averages of 20 and 18 against the Heat, and Hassan Whiteside played in two of those three games. He has to be considered for GPP players tonight.
