High Value SF
Players costing $6,250 or under
Cedi Osman (vs ORL – $5,400): Needs 25.3 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 20 fantasy points against Detroit. Cedi continues to be the best player on the floor for the Cavaliers (just kidding, it’s Kevin Love) and there is no reason to doubt him. His salary has jumped but there should be plenty of DFS points to go around in this one and Cedi has proven that he can put up big scoring games and do a bit of everything. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Jabari Parker (vs MIN – $4,800): Needs 22.5 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 22.75 fantasy points against Boston. Parker has been all over the place since joining the Wizards but he’s at least getting minutes. And he’s shown a very high ceiling. The matchup is a good one since the Timberwolves aren’t a great team and Parker should be able to hurt them a bit on the inside. He’s a slight risk just cause he’s Jabari Parker. Diagnosis: Fairly reliable with a high ceiling.
Markieff Morris (vs MEM – $4,300): Needs 20.1 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 17.75 fantasy points against San Antonio. With no Paul George, the Thunder need offense from somewhere and Morris is a guy who can supply offense. He’s starting to get more comfortable on the team and he’ll soon be in for a big game or two. This might not be that game given the matchup and the back-to-back, but the minutes and opportunities should be there. Diagnosis: Fairly reliable with a good ceiling.
