High Value SG
Players costing $6,250 or under
Bojan Bogdanovic (at NY – $4,900): Needs 22 fantasy points. Bogdanovic has been up-and-down this season. He was slightly down against the Blazers, but this is a better matchup. His value is largely tied to his scoring, which could be trouble if shots aren’t going in. Diagnosis: Strong matchup, but inconsistent. I’m willing to play the matchup and like how many minutes he gets.
Joe Harris (vs DET – $4,400): Needs 19.7 fantasy points. Harris has cooled off from his hot start, but the Pistons are on a back-to-back and Harris had 29.5 fantasy points against them on Oct. 17. The Nets are kind of all over the place this season, which hurts the value of a lot of their players. Diagnosis: I like the matchup, his skills, and the salary. But he’s inconsistent.
Lance Stephenson (vs DAL – $4,200): Needs 19.1 fantasy points. Stephenson has been over 20 fantasy points in his last four games. He’s Lance, which always makes him difficult to trust, but the Mavericks defense hasn’t exactly stopped anyway. I still don’t have a read on the Lakers outside of LeBron, but Lance is proving his worth, getting decent enough minutes, and can do a bit of everything. Diagnosis: Good matchup, but….it’s Lance.
