High Salary PF
Players costing over $6,667
Tobias Harris (vs WAS – $7,600): Needs 32.8 fantasy points. Harris has been up-and-down in the last four games. He was down against the Rockets, but that was largely due to minutes. His minutes should be back up against the Wizards as, for all their flaws, play better defense than the Rockets. Harris is going to get his points and rebounds without much issue. Diagnosis: Will deliver at least value and has the highest ceiling among power forwards.
Draymond Green (at BKN – $7,200): Needs 31 fantasy points. Green finally delivered a big game when he came up with 39.8 fantasy points aagsint the Knicks on Oct. 26. He’s still an inconsistent scorer, but he always does a bit of everything in all categories. I like the matchup for him, but don’t full trust him due to his up-and-down scoring. Diagnosis: Maybe the Nets should invite Fergie? Then I’ll have no problem taking Green.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (vs GS – $5,600): Needs 24.1 fantasy points. Hollis-Jefferson simply isn’t playing enough minutes to make an impact thus far this season. He’s well under the average salary, but it’s a slow night at the power forward position. Even at this salary, it’s tough to think he’ll deliver based on what we’ve seen in the first two games. Diagnosis: Not playing enough and perhaps still bothered by a hip injury.
