High Salary SF

LeBron James ($11,800): You probably don’t need a blurb on why James is a good bet. This is the lowest his salary has been all series, which makes him an even better bet than previous games. He needs 50.1 fantasy points to reach value. He’ll likely be over 60 fantasy points and 70-plus fantasy points is not out of the question. He’ll deliver because he’s LeBron James and he always delivers in the playoffs. *****

Paul George ($8,100): George has been over value in three of the four games in this series. He was within one fantasy point of value in his one miss. His defensive effort hasn’t been up to his usual level, but his offense looks just fine. He’s good for at least value if nothing else. ***

High Value SF

Joe Ingles ($6,600): And because George’s defense hasn’t been up to his usual level, Ingles has feasted. He’s been over 30 fantasy points in the last two games after being held under 15 fantasy points in the first two games. Unless the Thunder drastically change their game plan, Ingles is going to be over value once again. ****

Lance Stephenson ($3,800): If you want to snag LeBron James, you’ll likely need a low salary small forward to balance that out. And that’s where Stephenson comes into play. He had 27.4 fantasy points in Game 4 and has been just under value in the other three games. He’s reliable enough to at least hit value. ***
