Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Kyrie Irving vs BKN ($7,500) - The Nets allow the most fantasy points in the league to point guards and are on the second night of a back to back. As well, Kyrie has posted over 39 fantasy points in three straight games, including two 50+ point fantasy performances. My only concern with this matchup would be a blowout.
Joel Embiid vs PHO ($7,200) - The Suns have allowed centers to average 58 fantasy points a night over their last five games. This matchup just seems too good to pass up. But with that said, Embiid is still on the Sixers, so make sure you protect yourself.
Dennis Schroeder vs DEN ($7,100) - Schroeder has a nice matchup against the Nuggets, a team that allows point guards to average over 48 fantasy points a night. Schroeder has also posted over 31 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games. This game should have some nice pace as well, leading to plenty of points.
Devin Booker vs PHI ($6,100) - It looks like Booker is finally starting to find a rhythm, posting over 29 fantasy points in three of his last four games. Plus, we know Philly will give up their fair share of open looks.
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson vs CLE ($4,100) - RHJ has looked a lot more aggressive and energetic of late and has posted over 26 fantasy points in two straight games. Plus, he’s going to get playing time regardless of the score.
