High Value SF
Players costing $6,250 or under
Jabari Parker (vs DEN – $6,000): Needs 27.4 fantasy points. Parker has been over 35 fantasy points in his last two games. The Bulls don’t defend a lick, but Parker gets points and rebounds. This one might be ugly, but that just means Parker has more minutes against the Nuggets bend. I expect him to deliver once again. Diagnosis: Parker continues to excel offensively. He’ll be a double-double threat once again.
Harrison Barnes (at LAL – $5,500): Needs 25.1 fantasy points. Barnes has been up-and-down in his three games this season, but he dominated a poor Spurs defense and now gets to play a poor Lakers defense. His scoring numbers have dropped with Doncic in the lineup, but he’s still a solid scoring option who helps with rebounds. Diagnosis: I’m taking anyone against the Lakers right now. Their defense is all out of sorts.
Marco Belinelli (at PHO – $4,000): Needs 18 fantasy points. Belinelli has been over 20 fantasy points in three out of his last four games. His value is mainly tied to his scoring, but the Spurs are scoring with the best of them right now. And Belinelli is getting plenty of open looks. Plus, it’s Phoenix. Diagnosis: Love the Spurs offense against the Suns. Also, love Belinelli’s ability at this salary.
