High Value C
Players costing $6,250 or under
Willie Cauley-Stein (vs NO – $5,100): Needs 24.6 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 28.25 fantasy points against Cleveland. WCS can be all over the place and he’s been up-and-down in a big way as of late. But this has been his matchup this season. He’s averaging 43.2 fantasy points in three games against the pelicans, including 44.5 fantasy points against them on Mar. 28. Trust him in this matchup. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Mason Plumlee (at POR – $4,700): Needs 22.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 23 fantasy points against Portland. With Jokic out of the lineup, this is a big spot for Plumlee to produce. And Plumlee should definitely produce in this matchup given Portland’s frontcourt and the minutes and opportunities Plumlee will end up getting. I love him in this game due to the circumstances and given the salary, he should have a big outing. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Aaron Baynes (vs ORL – $4,600): Needs 22.2 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 35.75 fantasy points against Indiana. With Horford out of the lineup, Baynes will continue to see strong minutes and he’s been delivering in those minutes. He’s not the most consistent option but this is a good matchup for him and I like the way he’s playing right now alongside the rest of the starters. Keep taking advantage of no Horford. Diagnosis: Reliable with a high ceiling.
