High Salary SG
Players costing over $6,250
Bradley Beal (vs IND – $8,700): Needs 40 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 47.5 fantasy points against Cleveland. You pretty much know what you’re getting from Beal at this point. He’s been very reliable with Wall injured and he has a high ceiling. The Pacers are still reeling from the Oladipo injury though the Wizards are on a back-to-back. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Donovan Mitchell (at POR – $8,400): Needs 38.7 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 42 fantasy points against Minnesota. Mitchell continues to deliver and until I see him fall off, I will continue to take him. And his salary has lowered, which helps him out. He had 53.25 fantasy points against the Blazers on Jan. 21. Keep taking him until he shows signs of slipping. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Will Barton (at NO – $6,800): Needs 30.9 fantasy points LAST GAME – 31.25 fantasy points against Memphis. With Murray out of the lineup, Barton will continue to get solid minutes and plenty of opportunities. The matchup is a good one as the Pelicans are terrible against perimeter players and are on a back-to-back. He’s not quite back in rhythm but there are positive signs coming into this game. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling.
