High Value SG
Players costing $6,667 or under
Eric Gordon (at NO – $6,300): Needs 26.7 fantasy points. Much like Harden, Gordon is reliable on a lesser level. The minutes and opportunities are always there for him. And now he gets the Pelicans on a back-to-back. This should be another 30 point outing for Gordon where he racks up points and chips in with assists and rebounds. And he always seems to play well against the Pelicans, even when CP3 was healthy. Diagnosis: Very reliable and a high ceiling.
Jordan Clarkson (at ATL – $6,000): Needs 25.4 fantasy points. Clarkson had 28 fantasy points against the Heat on Friday. The Heat are a tough matchup. The Hawks, coming off an overtime game, are not a tough matchup. Clarkson never lacks for minutes or shots. He should have a strong scoring night in this game. Diagnosis: Fairly reliable, great matchup, and a good ceiling.
Monte Morris (at PHO – $5,700): Needs 24.1 fantasy points. Morris continues to be a reliable option. His minutes were down against the Spurs, but he came up with 28.5 fantasy points in 21 minutes. If Jamal Murray is out, Morris may even draw the start. As long as the Pelicans are still lacking guards due to injuries, Morris will continue to deliver. Diagnosis: Reliable, good ceiling, and Suns.
