High Salary SF
Players costing over $6,250
Tobias Harris (at NO – $7,500): Needs 34.5 fantasy points. Harris’ numbers were down against the Rockets as he posted just 29.5 fantasy points. The scoring numbers were there, he just didn’t offer much of anything else. Montrezl Harrell dominating the game the way he did had an impact. I think Harrell will have another strong game on Tuesday, which could hurt Harris’ value. Diagnosis: The scoring will be there. The rebounding needs to return. With the pace the Pelicans play at, there’s a good chance he’ll be able to grab boards.
Nikola Mitotic (vs LAC – $7,200): Needs 33.1 fantasy points. Mitotic has been a monster to start the season. He’s been over 50 fantasy in both games. It’s tough to envision him slowing down against the Clippers. He offers better value at the moment than Harris at $300 less. Until he stops making shots on a consistent basis, keep taking him. Diagnosis: Red hot and no reason to doubt him.
Danilo Gallinari (at NO – $6,300): Needs 29 fantasy points. Gallinari continued his hot start, putting in 38.75 fantasy points against the Rockets. When Gallinari is healthy, he’s always a producer. He just hasn’t been healthy in forever. The Pelicans defense is still suspect and Gallinari might be the best player on a Clippers team lacking that big star. Diagnosis: Salary still isn’t high enough for what he’s been giving you thus far. Keep taking him while he’s healthy.
