High Value SF
Players costing $6,667 or under
JJ Redick (at ATL – $5,800): Needs 23.8 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 32.5 fantasy points against Dallas. Redick can be all over the place but with Butler and Embiid out of the lineup, he will continue to get more shots, even if it means extra attention. But the Hawks defense doesn’t exactly pay attention to anyone. The shots will be there for Redick and even though he hasn’t been quite as reliable this season, the matchup is too good to pass up on. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
Maurice Harkless (vs MEM – $5,400): Needs 22.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 25.8 fantasy points against Minnesota. Harkless has continued to play well with the injuries to the Blazers and I suspect he’ll play well once again in this matchup because the Grizzlies aren’t fielding much of a team right now. He had 36.7 fantasy points against the Grizzlies on Mar. 5. I continue to love him with the injuries to the Blazers. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Kevin Knox (at ORL – $5,300): Needs 21.8 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 32.3 fantasy points against Chicago. Knox can be all over the place but the minutes are there for him right now and I do like his game overall. He’s not the most reliable option but the ceiling is high. And the Magic will typically play to their competition, which should be some good news for the Knicks. I’m not in love with the value at small forward on Wednesday and Knox is a guy who can deliver big. Diagnosis: Fairly reliable with a high ceiling.
