High Salary C
Players costing over $6,667
Nikola Vucevic (vs CLE – $10,500): Needs 47.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 42.8 fantasy points against Washington. You know what you’re getting out of Vucevic on most nights and now he has a great matchup against the Cavaliers. It’s a back-to-back but he’s been a reliable option all season. And the Magic don’t blow anyone out which means Vucevic will get the minutes in a competitive affair. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Myles Turner (vs OKC – $7,600): Needs 34.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 41.8 fantasy points against New York. Turner is definitely looking more like himself and now he gets a Thunder team that he usually plays pretty well against. And the Thunder are on a back-to-back, which always helps. Turner will get it done in this game. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Al Horford (vs SAC – $6,900): Needs 31 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 22.2 fantasy points against LA Clippers. You never know quite what you’re going to get out of Horford but it’s the Kings. And he had 47.7 fantasy points against them a week ago. With Kyrie in the lineup, his role is lessened but I still love this matchup too much to pass up on him. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
