High Salary SG

Jrue Holiday ($8,300): James Harden is always an option, but I’ll talk more about him in my game-by-game previews. What it really comes down to is Holiday being the more reliable option at a lesser salary. He’s only had one big game in this series, but he’s been at value in the other two. He makes an impact on both sides of the floor and is a good bet to at least hit value once again. ****

Donovan Mitchell ($8,100): It took Mitchell until the fourth quarter to really get going in Game 2, but he still ended up with 37.2 fantasy points. At home, his confidence should be high following the first two games. The one concern is the Thunder putting Paul George on Mitchell from the jump. But Mitchell has torched defenders all season and isn’t stopping now. *****

High Value SG

Andrew Wiggins ($6,200): If nothing else, Wiggins is at least giving you value right now. In the playoffs, where guys go hot and cold on a game-to-game basis and random guys step up, getting value is important. He’s rebounding and while he’s not shooting well, he’s getting shots. Maybe his luck changes at home. I wouldn’t count on him for a big game, but I would count on him to hit value. ***

Marco Belinelli ($5,700): Belinelli had 36.3 fantasy points in Game 2. He’s not only contributing with buckets, but he’s rebounding and picking up assists. He’s provided excellent minutes off the bench and is slowly becoming a better option than J.J. Redick, who I’m still high on given his playing time and role with the starters. But until Belinelli runs cold, keep taking him. ****
