We got a little 3 game slate tonight so we’re going to be looking at players that I think will be flying under the radar for some NBA GPP. Trae, Luka, and Jimmy are going to be on everyone’s radar tonight and they are on mine as well.
NBA GPP – Guards – Most of these guys are PG and SG eligible
Ja Morant – Don’t even think about putting this guy in cash. Ja is starting to feel more comfortable and I started to see that the other night against Brooklyn. Locked down Kyrie down the stretch and set up the game winning bucket by Crowder. He has had fantasy point games of 50, 25.75, 26. He is trending in the right direction.
Jamaal Murray – listed at $6,600 I like him at this price. He has the potential to go for 50 and he has done so before against the Mavs. He has a usage rate of 35% to start the season which is extremely high considering Jokic is on the team. Nobody will roster this guy tonight he is worth a shot..
Quinn Cook – Starting to see a minutes uptick and with Rondo out again its almost a lock in play especially at $3,200. Playing a paced up Grizzlies team will benefit him. He played a lot of minutes down the stretch against the Hornets the other night. Hopefully Vogel rolls him out a little extra tonight.
Dillon Brooks – Biiiig pivot here from Danny Green here. Dillon priced $300 cheaper than Green who is essentially the same type of player on different teams. Plus, the last 2 games Brooks has been right around 30+ minutes and I think Jenkins found something that he likes with him. Just hope Brooks can get a few extra rebounds or assists tonight and he will smash value.
Avery Bradley – Can’t believe I’m putting him in this but I’m going to. I’m hoping Bradley can make a few three pointers and rack up some steals. Memphis averages 18 turn overs a game and with them playing at a faster pace, I could see Bradley hitting value at $3,500. Very risky and far from an attractive play but might be worth a shot with little value on the slate.
