High Salary SF
Players costing over $6,250
Tobias Harris (at OKC – $7,800): Needs 35.4 fantasy points. Harris has been a reliable option this season and had 49.5 fantasy points against the Thunder on Oct. 19. If the Thunder are missing their top two centers, Harris will have an easier time with points in the paint and rebounds. Even if Adams/Noel do play, Harris will continue to put up points. Diagnosis: Reliable option with a high ceiling and a solid matchup.
Taurean Prince (at CLE – $7,100): Needs 32.3 fantasy points. Prince had a rough outing against the Sixers, finishing with 16.5 fantasy points. He’s been solid all season so consider Monday an off-night and expect him to return to form. Playing against the Cavaliers obviously helps his cause. He’ll put up points as the Hawks run roughshod over the Cavaliers. Diagnosis: Keep taking Hawks players against the Cavaliers, especially those who are as reliable as Prince has been this season.
Aaron Gordon (vs SAC – $6,800): Needs 30.8 fantasy points. Gordon hasn’t been good in recent contests, but the Kings are on a back-to-back and we know Gordon has a high ceiling. I like this matchup for him and think he’s too good to continue on this cold streak. Diagnosis: A risky option based on recent play, but a good matchup with a high ceiling.
