High Salary SG
Players costing over $6,667
James Harden (vs PHO – $12,500): Needs 52.4 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 54.6 fantasy points against Golden State. It’s Harden against the Suns. There is a theory that this might be a blowout and Harden won’t have to be Harden because it’s the Suns. But Harden loves winning and loves getting his numbers. This is a great game for him to get his numbers. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
Bradley Beal (vs CHA – $10,800): Needs 45.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 45.7 fantasy points against Orlando. Or you can cave money and get potentially the same production, if not better, out of Beal. You know what you’re getting out of Beal. He’s very reliable and the ceiling is high, especially against this matchup. He’s averaging 52.4 fantasy points in three games against the Hornets. He’ll deliver. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Lou Williams (vs CHI – $7,700): Needs 32.3 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 25.7 fantasy points against Portland. Williams was down against the Blazers but trust him to bounce back against the Bulls. It’s the Bulls. And we know what Williams is capable of. I also like DeMar DeRozan against the Knicks, although you’ll have to spend more for him. If nothing else, Williams will get you value in this game. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
