High Salary PF
Players costing over $6,667
John Collins (at WAS – $8,400): Needs 36 fantasy points. You almost know what you’re getting from Collins at this point. He’s been fantastic thought this season for the Hawks and if Dedmon doesn’t play, Collins will have more freedom in the paint. More importantly, he’ll be up against the Wizards. They are easy picking for anyone right now. Diagnosis: Very high ceiling and a great matchup.
Kyle Kuzma (vs OKC – $7,400): Needs 31.7 fantasy points. Kuzma has continued to play well despite LeBron being out of the lineup. He’s arguably the best player on the Lakers right now and he’s getting it done in all categories. It’s a tough matchup, but someone has to score, rebound, and pick up assists for the Lakers. And Kuzma has been the best option as of late. Diagnosis: Reliable with a very high ceiling.
Lauri Markkanen (vs ORL – $7,400): Needs 31.7 fantasy points. Markknanen has been fairly consistent over the last week or so. And now he gets the Magic. They are a great matchup for anyone right now. The Bulls are also a great matchup for anyone, but Markkanen is the best player on the Bulls and should have no issue getting his points and rebounds in this one. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good matchup and ceiling.
