High Salary SF

Kevin Durant ($10,300): Durant had 57.25 fantasy points in Game 4. His offense was there, but the Warriors defense is why they are playing a Game 5. Their defense will look better in Game 5 and Durant will continue to be deliver on offense. He’s been steady during this series and should end up around 50 fantasy points once again. ****

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($9,900): Antetokounmpo has been at 42 fantasy points in each of the last two games. Game 3 was due to foul trouble and a blowout, Game 4 was just a miss. Now his salary makes him much easier to add to your lineup and I absolutely love him at this price. There’s no bust factor and he could easily outperform Durant at a lower price. *****

High Value SF

Jabari Parker ($6,200): Parker proved Game 3 was no fluke, contributing 37.25 fantasy points in 25 minutes in Game 4. The Bucks have found a spark in Parker, and while the Celtics made some good adjustments in the second half, Parker has proven to be a factor in this series. He should be around value once again. ***

Jayson Tatum ($6,000): Tatum continues to be a contributor in this series and with the Celtics back at home, that should change. His salary has dropped to where he needs 27.8 fantasy points to hit value. I like him more than Parker because his minutes and opportunities are guaranteed and Boston has been better at home this series. ****
