High Salary PF
Players costing over $6,667
Anthony Davis (vs BKN – $13,000): Needs 55.4 fantasy points. Davis had a pedestrian 70.6 fantasy point game against the Clippers on Oct. 23. It’s weird when that doesn’t seem impressive, but that’s the standard Davis is setting right now. He’ll put up big numbers once again, especially against an overmatched Nets team, it’s just a matter of how high his numbers will climb. Diagnosis: He won’t hurt you and he has the potential to carry your team.
Tobias Harris (at HOU – $7,700): Needs 32.8 fantasy points. Harris had 27.3 fantasy points against the Rockets on Oct. 21. Not great numbers and his worst game of the season thus far. The scoring has been there for Harris, but his rebounding numbers were down in that one. Call it the Montrezl factor. I still like Harris if you’re not willing to spend on Davis. Diagnosis: Reliable option with a high ceiling. If Carmelo Anthony ends up starting, Harris should fest.
Draymond Green (at NY – $7,500): Needs 32 fantasy points. Green hasn’t been great this season as his scoring and rebounding numbers are down. His lack of scoring always hurts him from a DFS perspective and the things he does well don’t count for much in DFS. But the Knicks are typically a good matchup for teams. Diagnosis: Inconsistent thus far, but the potential is always there.
