High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,250
Kyrie Irving (vs GS – $9,300): Needs 43.4 fantasy points. Kyrie has been over 60 fantasy points in his last three games. And now he enters into a big game against the Warriors. I love Kyrie in this game. I have no concern about his ability to raise his level and deliver in such a big matchup. He’s at a good enough salary and he will deliver big time in this game. Diagnosis: It’s a big game and in big games, Kyrie steps up. Reliable with a high ceiling.
Damian Lillard (vs ATL – $8,900): Needs 41.6 fantasy points. Lillard was down to 39.75 fantasy points against the Suns but he only played 30 minutes in the blowout. He’ll be back up in this one. Maybe. It’s not like the Hawks are all that good. But Lillard should get enough points even in limited minutes to at least be worth an addition. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling if the game is competitive.
Jamal Murray (vs PHI – $6,800): Needs 31.6 fantasy points. Murray wasn’t needed much against the Suns but he still looked more like himself than he did against the Jazz. It was a nice semi-return to form. And now he’ll get a nice opportunity to really show he’s back against the Sixers. Murray has been solid for most of this season and can always get hot. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling.
