Khem Birch (at CLE – $5,100 on DK; $5,800 on FD): Khem can be inconsistent but he is getting good minutes as the starter in Orlando and he has a great matchup against Cleveland. At least on DK, he’s unlikely to hurt you at the price. But expect more given the matchup and his overall ceiling.
Tomas Satoransky (vs GS – $6,000 on DK; $6,500 on FD): Satoransky slips in below the salary line and it’s never a bad idea to stack against the Warriors, especially the Warriors on the road. The Bulls aren’t great, but they have some good offensive players and Satoransky has proven he can be a productive player.
Kendrick Nunn (vs WAS – $4,800 on DK; $5,100 on FD): Nunn has been struggling compared to his hot start to the season. But it’s a good time to buy low on him given the matchup in front of him. We know he can fill it up and maybe this is a game to get him going given the Wizards defense.
Garrett Temple (at CHA – $5,800 on DK; $5,600 on FD): Temple has been a big value player in three of his last four games. Maybe his hot streak stops at some point, but I can’t see it happening against a team like the Hornets. Temple should be able to keep up his rum in this one.
Robert Covington (at OKC – $5,600 on DK; $5,800 on FD): Covington is a fairly stable option, but this is a great matchup for him as he typically plays extremely well against the Thunder. So does Andrew Wiggins, who you should definitely take if he ends up playing. But if he sits, Covington will see some more opportunities as a solid offensive player.
