High Value C
Players costing $6,667 or under
Dewayne Dedmon (at CLE – $5,500): Needs 24.1 fantasy points. Dedmon had 20 fantasy points against the Sixers on Monday. He’s playing more than Alex Len right now and is contributing much more. Dedmon should have no problem getting points and rebounds against the Cavaliers, who might trot out five Collin Sextons on Tuesday. Diagnosis: It’s the Cavaliers. Dedmon will damage them on the inside.
Cody Zeller (vs MIA – $4,400): Needs 19.3 fantasy points. Zeller has been a reliable option all season. He’s not going to give you a big game, but he’s going to give you consistent numbers at a low salary. And with the way Miami looked on Monday, maybe he’ll have a big game. Diagnosis: Reliable option who won’t hurt you.
Boban Marjanovic (at OKC – $3,700): Needs 16.2 fantasy points. If Adams and Noel don’t play for the Thunder, Boban will be unleashed. He never plays big minutes, but he’ll put up numbers for the time he does play. Even if Noel or Adams does play, Boban provided solid minutes against them earlier this year. Diagnosis: Unleash the Boban. Could dominate if the Thunder are without their top two centers.
