Not a huge schedule of games for a Wednesday, but you’ve got a nice mix of stars to roll with on the high end. Here are our cheaper sleeper picks for today.
G – Patrick Beverley vs Phoenix
As I expected, the Rockets are relying on Beverley to man the PG position with Jeremy Lin out, and he did pretty good last game.
G – Trey Burke vs Indiana
Okay, so a few weeks ago I had him on my list, more as a player to watch. He’s now a mid-priced guy but has shown he can produce at an above average range. I think eventually he could be the same price as maybe Jrue Holiday or possibly Eric Bledsoe, so he does have some value even with his price rising recently.
G – Jamal Crawford at Atlanta
With J.J. Redick out Crawford’s role has increased. He’s usually about average price on most daily fantasy sites – but he has upside if he shoots well and gets a few assists.
F – Khris Middleton vs Detroit
You might just want to double-check closer to gametime to see if he’s starting, the coach likes to switch things up on this team, making Middleton a risky play, but with some upside into the 30’s.
F/C – Jason Smith vs Dallas
Was pretty good last game with Anthony Davis out … and is still pretty cheap since he wasn’t doing much before that.
