High Salary SF

Josh Jackson, PHO at ORL ($6,800): Jackson is your only high salary option on Saturday and he’s a good one given the matchup. He had 32 fantasy points against the Cavaliers on Friday, putting himself right at value. The status of Devin Booker and T.J. Warren is unknown at the time of this writing, but my gut tells me Warren won’t play while Booker will be a game-time decision. Either way, Jackson should be over 30 fantasy points given the matchup. ****

High Value SF

Jeremy Lamb, CHA at DAL ($6,300): Lamb had 31.8 fantasy points against the Grizzlies on Thursday as it seemed like every member of the Hornets had a big game in that one. He continues to perform well as a starter and if Nicolas Batum is out again, you can expect Lamb to be around 30 fantasy points for the fourth straight contest. He needs 27.1 fantasy points to reach value on Saturday. ***

Harrison Barnes, DAL vs CHA ($6,200): Barnes had 30.8 fantasy points against the Jazz on Thursday. The return of Dennis Smith Jr. will cut into his value a bit, but his salary remains low enough to where he can exceed value. He needs 26.7 fantasy points to hit value in this one. He had 44.2 fantasy points against the Hornets on Jan. 10 and is averaging 39.6 fantasy points in his last three games. Even with Smith Jr. back in the lineup, Barnes should be over 30 fantasy points. ****

Robert Covington, PHI vs MIN ($6,000): Covington posted 26.6 fantasy points in 26 minutes against the Magic on Thursday. He needs 25.8 fantasy points to reach value on Saturday. Seeing as this game should competitive, Covington will see his usual 30-plus minutes. In those minutes, he’ll be over value and likely end up with at least 30 fantasy points if recent play is any indication. ***
