High Salary SF
Players costing over $6,667
Giannis Antetokounmpo (at MIN – $12,300): Needs 50.9 fantasy points. You know the drill with Giannis. He’s never going to hurt you and there’s always a chance he goes over 70 plus fantasy points, which he did against the Sixers. The Timberwolves are a great matchup because they still don’t know how to defend. I fully expect Giannis to deliver once again. Diagnosis: He costs a ton, but he’s worth a ton.
Nikola Mirotic (vs BKN – $7,500): Needs 31.1 fantasy points. Mirotic went cold from beyond the arc against the Clippers, but he still found ways to score and he pitched in with rebounds. Trust that his shooting stroke will return as the Pelicans continue to put up great offensive numbers. The rebounds should be there once again. Diagnosis: Good matchup who has found ways to be a DFS stud. If he finds his shot, it only increases his value again.
Jabari Parker (at CHA – $7,000): Needs 29 fantasy points. This injury to Portis should mean more minutes for Parker. He played 31 minutes against the Hornets on Oct. 24 and finished with 30.8 fantasy points. Scoring and rebounding are rarely a problem for Parker. And with extra minutes he has a big chance to over-perform. Diagnosis: Good set of circumstances for Parker to have his best game of the season.
