Raptors-Wizards (Raptors Lead 3-2)
John Wall continues to be the best player in the series. Back at home, he’s a sure thing. Bradley Beal should have a bounce back performance being back at home as well.
Otto Porter Jr. is listed as questionable, but I’m assuming he will play given the fact that the Wizards season is on the line. But the injury could explain his limited production in this series. It’s also opened the door of Kelly Oubre Jr. to play more. Oubre Jr. seems like a great option at small forward.
Marcin Gortat has been at value or better in the last three games. His salary has jumped, but if you want to save money at center and get someone who will likely hit value, he’s a good bet. Markieff Morris may see more opportunities if Porter Jr. doesn’t play.
DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have been over value in all but one game during this series. DeRozan’s 50.2 fantasy point performance in Game 4 in Washington bodes well for his value in Game 6. Lowry has been the better player on the road all season, but DeRozan’s shot making ability pays dividends in the playoffs.
Jonas Valanciunas has been up-and-down all series. He typically provides solid production in limited minutes. He has the highest ceiling of the value centers, which works to his favor.
Delon Wright has been a solid play all series. But if Fred VanVleet returns, things get complicated.
Jakob Poeltl has outplayed Serge Ibaka in the last two games. Can that trend continue? I have my doubts. But Ibaka is certainly a risk and Poeltl appears to be a decent punt option.
