High Salary PF

Anthony Davis, NO vs MEM ($11,800): Davis didn’t necessarily have a great game against the Thunder on Sunday, but still managed 52.75 fantasy points. He needs 53.1 fantasy points to reach value on Wednesday. The Pelicans need victories right now and a couple of days off should benefit Davis and the rest of the Pelicans. He’ll be over 50 fantasy points without much issue and likely pushes 60 fantasy points, especially if Marc Gasol sees limited minutes once again. ****

LaMarcus Aldridge, SA at LAL ($9,300): It was another monster night for Aldridge on Tuesday as he finished with 60.5 fantasy points against the Clippers. He’s on a heck of a run right now and until he cools off or is stopped, he makes for a great centerpiece for your team. It’s unlikely that the Lakers will be the team to slow him down, although stranger things have happened. Expect him to give you at least 50 fantasy points given the tear he’s on with 60-plus fantasy points not being out of the question.

Julius Randle, LAL vs SA ($7,500): Randle was under value on Tuesday against the Jazz, finishing with 34.5 fantasy points in that one. He’s missed value in three straight and even his hits right now aren’t all that high. That said, his salary has dropped to where he needs 33.8 fantasy points and he had 40.5 fantasy points against the Spurs on Mar. 3. If nothing else, he should at least hit value on this lowered salary. ***
