High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,250
Damian Lillard (at HOU – $9,600): Needs 44.9 fantasy points. Lillard had a rough outing against the Pacers with just 21.75 fantasy points. Chalk it up to a rough shooting night and expect him to be better against the Rockets. I mean, have you seen the Rockets defense? Lillard has been great all season and he’s too good of a player to remain cold given the matchup. Diagnosis: Great matchup, will give you threes, and is up against the Rockets.
Kemba Walker (vs MIA – $8,300): Needs 38.8 fantasy points. Walker has been on one this season. And with the way the Heat looked on Monday, there’s a good reason to think Walker’s hot streak will continue. I’m not doubting Walker with the way he’s playing right now. Maybe he cools down at some point, but I can’t see it being on Tuesday. Diagnosis: Red hot and with a great matchup.
Trae Young (at CLE – $7,200): Needs 33.7 fantasy points. Young has been up-and-down this season, but he was way up with 60 fantasy points the last time these two teams met. The Cavaliers are an absolute mess and while I hate trusting rookies due to their inconsistencies, I trust this matchup. Maybe Young won’t have 60 fantasy points, but he’ll light up the Cavaliers defense. Diagnosis: Fantastic matchup given all the drama surrounding the Cavaliers.
