High Salary PF

Anthony Davis, NO at GS ($12,800): As expected, Davis had no issue with the Suns on Friday, posting 65.7 fantasy points in that one. He’s averaging 62.3 fantasy points in two games against the Warriors this season, although those games were in October and November. Still, he’s been fantastic since DeMarcus Cousins’ injury, the Pelicans are still fighting for the playoff lives, and the Warriors defense remains questionable. It’ll be another big night for Davis on Saturday. *****

LaMarcus Aldridge, SA vs POR ($9,500): Aldridge was over value once again on Wednesday, collecting 49.8 fantasy points against the Lakers in that one. He needs 41.7 fantasy points to hit value on Saturday. The Trail Blazers have a stout defense and both teams still have plenty to play for. But Aldridge looks unstoppable right now and until he slows down, he can be counted on to get you at least 40 fantasy points. He’ll be over value once again on Saturday. *****

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, BKN at CHI ($7,200): Hollis-Jefferson had 44.7 fantasy points against the Bucks on Thursday. With DeMarre Carroll out of the lineup, Hollis-Jefferson was involved more in the offense and picked up extra rebounding opportunities. He needs 31.6 fantasy points to reach value on Saturday. Given the matchup, that should be no issue. Carroll is scheduled to be out once again and Hollis-Jefferson has played well since returning from injury. ****
