High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,250
Luka Doncic (at IND – $7,900): Needs 36.3 fantasy points. Luka had 49.5 fantasy points against the Spurs on Jan. 16. I have no concern about Luka and his game right now. The matchup is tough as the Pacers have a good defense and the Mavericks aren’t great on the road. But Luka continues to deliver and he’s right there with a triple-double every night. He remains at a good salary given his usual production. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
Kyle Lowry (vs MEM – $7,400): Needs 34.6 fantasy points. Lowry had 42.25 fantasy points against the Suns on Jan. 17. It was the Suns, but Lowry has been solid during the last week or so. And the Grizzlies are on a back-to-back. And it’s not like the Grizzlies are playing well at the moment either. Lowry is a very reliable option who will at least get you value in this matchup but I do expect more. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Lonzo Ball (at HOU – $6,900): Needs 32.3 fantasy points. Lonzo has been over 39 fantasy points in his last three games. He’s had some good matchups but this is a another good matchup for him on Saturday as the Rockets, as good as they’ve been offensively, are not good on defense. Especially with Capela out of the lineup. Lonzo does a bit of everything and he’ll do plenty in this game. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
