High Value PG
Players costing $6,667 or under
Raul Neto (vs ORL – $5,900): Needs 25.2 fantasy points. This is all about the circumstances. With Ricky Rubio out, Neto is going to get more run. He played 29 minutes against the Bucks and had 22.7 fantasy points. He figures to play more in this one. He can do a bit of everything and it’s the Magic. He should be in for a solid outing in this one. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling. Great set of circumstances and a good matchup as well.
Derrick White (at MEM – $5,300): Needs 22.7 fantasy points. You know what you’re getting from White on most nights and the fact that his salary has dropped only helps your cause. He’s going to get you value and he has a good ceiling due to the offense he’s in. He had 27.8 fantasy points against the Grizzlies on Jan. 5. Diagnosis: Very reliable, especially at this salary and a good ceiling.
Shabazz Napier (vs ATL – $4,700): Needs 20.1 fantasy points. Napier has been at 29 fantasy points in his last two games. He drew the start against Boston and it led to more minutes. Now he gets the Hawks on a back-to-back. As long as he continues to start, you can take him with confidence. He’s proven that he can step up when given extra run. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling.
