High Value C
Cristiano Felicio, CHI at NY ($3,500): Felicio isn’t all that great, but he’s going to get a big opportunity to produce down the stretch. He played 30 minutes against the Cavaliers on Saturday, finishing with 27.5 fantasy points. Playing time is half the battle in the final month of the season and Felicio is getting the playing time right. He’s a nice low cost option with double-double potential. ***
Bam Adebayo, MIA vs DEN ($4,900): Adebayo has picked up the star in his last four, going over value in three of those games. He played 35 minutes against the Lakers on Friday, finishing with 24 fantasy points. Like Felicio, he’s a guy who is getting playing time with Hassan Whiteside out of the lineup and he should play enough minutes to make a decent impact on Monday. ***
Ante Zizic, CLE vs MIL ($3,700): And to round out the “playing time = production” group, we have Zizic. He started on Saturday against the Bulls, contributing 22.5 fantasy points in 20 minutes. When you play alongside LeBron James, you get easy points in the paint. Zizic was able to make good on the points while chipping in with rebounds against Chicago. If he starts once again, he should be over 20 fantasy points. If you’re looking for a higher cost guy with more upside, John Henson ($5,300) is a solid bet.
