9 of 12

High Value PF

Lauri Markkanen, CHI vs LAC ($5,800): Markkanen has been up-and-down in his last eight games. He was up on Sunday against the Hawks, finishing with 33 fantasy points. But this is a matchup where he can finally go over value in back-to-back contests. The Clippers are 27th against power forwards in their last 15 games. Markkanen needs 26.1 fantasy points to hit value on Tuesday. The trend isn’t good, but the matchup is and trends don’t last forever. ***

John Collins, ATL vs OKC ($5,400): After missing value in three straight, Collins was right at value against the Bulls on Sunday. He finished with 25.25 fantasy points in that contest. Without Kent Bazemore and possibly Dennis Schroder, the Hawks will need scoring and rebounding from somewhere. If Steven Adams is out for the Thunder, that makes Collins’ job much easier on both ends of the court. He’ll hit value with Adams in the lineup. He’ll be nicely over value if Adams doesn’t play. ****

Derrick Favors, UTA vs DET ($5,000): The Pistons are 30th against power forwards in their last 15 games. Favors had 33.5 fantasy points against Detroit on Jan 24. He needs 22.5 fantasy points to reach value on Tuesday. He’s missed value in his last three and his minutes were down against the Pelicans. But this is a great matchup and his salary is low enough for him to be above expectations. ***
