High Salary SG
Players costing over $6,250
James Harden (vs GS – $11,200): Needs 53.1 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 57.5 fantasy points against Charlotte. Harden’s value lessens with Chris Paul and Clint Capela in the lineup but there are few things Harden enjoys more than getting the better of the Warriors. Clubs after playoff losses are one of the things he enjoys more. And this is a big stage where Harden can boost his MVP narrative. That matters to him. Don’t think it doesn’t. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Bradley Beal (vs ORL – $9,800): Needs 45.9 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 59.75 fantasy points against Sacramento. But if you want just as much value at a better price, Beal is your guys. He’s been exceptional for the majority of the season and there is no reason to think he’ll slow down. I love Beal and will continue to love Beal. He’s that good. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Klay Thompson (at HOU – $7,200): Needs 33.7 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 48.25 fantasy points against Phoenix. While the Warriors are struggling, Klay Thompson is not. And with Durant out of the lineup, it means the return of the Splash Brothers. At least, that’s the thought. I always like Steph Curry due to Durant being absent. They will take all the shots and they are Klay and Steph. Trust them. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
