High Salary C
Players costing over $6,667
Andre Drummond (at BKN – $10,600): Needs 47.8 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 35.5 fantasy points against Chicago. Drummond was down against the Bulls but he was on a roll before that and now has a very good matchup against the Nets. He’s averaging 54.1 fantasy points in two games against the Nets. They don’t have an answer for him and he’ll get his points and rebounds without an issue. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Rudy Gobert (vs OKC – $9,500): Needs 42.8 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 34.9 fantasy points against Memphis. Gobert may have been down against the Grizzlies but I’m not concerned given this matchup. He had 57.2 fantasy points against the Thunder on Feb. 22 and they struggle keeping him off the boards. He’s averaging 1.26 FPPM in three games against the Thunder this season. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Steven Adams (at UTA – $7,000): Needs 31.6 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 21.5 fantasy points against LA Clippers. Adams has been down in the last two games but he’s gone to battle with Gobert this season and has done very well for himself. He’s averaging 37.5 fantasy points in three games against the Jazz this season. The minutes will definitely be there against the Jazz. Diagnosis: Reliable with a good ceiling.
