High Salary SF
Players costing over $6,250
LeBron James (vs CHA – $10,300): Needs 47.4 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 55.25 fantasy points against Washington. LeBron should be back after taking a nap in his last game. That’s how you get rest as an NBA player, right? Even in limited minutes, LeBron is still LeBron and he wants to leave a decent last impression in his first season as a Laker. It’s not like this season was a complete failure or anything. He’ll get you value if nothing else. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Kevin Durant (at MIN – $8,800): Needs 40.5 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 50.25 fantasy points against Memphis. You typically know what you’re getting out of Durant as he’s a reliable option, especially at this salary. And if he’s not going to a miss a shot then that’s pretty valuable, right? The matchup is good and even though he was a bit cold in recent weeks, he looks to be back in form. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Kyle Kuzma (vs CHA – $6,300): Needs 29 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 28.5 fantasy points against Utah. It’s a weak night at small forward with Paul George being questionable. And Kuzma is struggling right now but LeBron’s return will at least take some pressure off of him. And the Hornets are a great matchup. I don’t love the way he’s playing right now but the opportunities are going to be there for him. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
