Not that many games on the schedule today, so sleeper picks are a bit limited but are usually the key in getting you a top finish.
PG – Tony Wroten – vs Golden State 7:00 pm
Not the best matchup since he rates to guard Stephen Curry, but all the attention is MCW in 76ers land … while Tony has put up serviceable numbers in the first 3 games. He’s super cheap, and it’s not like Curry is all-world at defense.
PG – J.J. Barea – at Cleveland 7:00 pm
You basically know what your going to get with JJ – about 20 mins and about 20 fantasy points. He was the cheapest player at $3,000 on this site.
SG – J.J. Redick – vs Houston 7:30 pm
Has a lock on the starting lineup for the Clippers and plays about 28 mins per night. The coach likes to get him off early – plus he’s good in late-game situations because he’s a good free-throw shooter. Not super-cheap, but he’s $5,500 here and that’s below average.
SG/SF – Tony Allen – vs Boston 8:00 pm
Had a bad game last time out, and is a risky play … however Boston is one of the worst teams I’ve seen a franchise put on the court in 20+ years watching the game. and this is a back2back road game for them, which usually means good things for the home team & its players.
PF/C – Brandon Bass at Memphis 8:00 pm
Was on my cheaper picks yesterday, and had about 23 fantasy points. You don’t want to start him on sites that have minus points for miss shots (I hate those formats anyway) but he should be good for about 20 fantasy points with upside into the 30’s at a basement price.
