High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,250
D’Angelo Russell (at MIL – $9,100): Needs 43.1 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 47.75 fantasy points against Toronto. Russell continues to get it done for the Nets and I love how he’s playing down the stretch. He had 47.5 fantasy points against the Bucks on April 1 and has been over 47 fantasy points in three straight and seven of his last eight. The Nets still have reason to give effort, the Bucks probably won’t care as much. Russell will get his numbers in a big way. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Eric Bledsoe (vs BKN – $7,300): Needs 35.3 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 0 fantasy points against Philadelphia. Bledsoe got kicked out the Sixers game in three minutes for playing dodgeball with Joel Embiid. Assuming he’s not aiming for the head once again against the Nets, he should be back in form in this game. He had 59.25 fantasy points against the Nets on April 1. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
High Value PG
Players costing $6,250 or under
Shaquille Harrison (vs PHI – $6,200): Needs 29.1 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 29.5 fantasy points against Washington. Harrison should be at value if nothing else simply because the Bulls don’t have many options. And the Sixers defense isn’t very good. Though this should be a blowout for the Sixers, someone has to get numbers for the Bulls and Harrison has done a very good job of that. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
George Hill (vs BKN – $4,100): Needs 19.4 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 34.75 fantasy points against Philadelphia. Hill has been over 29 fantasy points in three straight, including a 30.5 fantasy point effort against the Nets on April 1. He’s a veteran who knows how to step up for a younger Bucks team and the matchup remains very good. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
