NBA Value Street
By Dylan Thompson
What’s up to all our members!!!! We are finally back in to the swing of things, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! We have a very enticing 6 game slate to play, so let’s dig in!
PG Ja Morant – At a price of $6300 on fanduel, it’s an absolute lock and steal for me. Facing a Portland team that plays absolutely no defense behind the arc, Morant has the opportunity to go bonkers here. We know all to well what this kid is capable of and I think he puts up good numbers in this spot.
SG Buddy Hield – This young man is averaging 31 fantasy points on the season, and his price is only $5500. To simplify it, he is averaging almost 6x at his price. San Antonio’s defense is middle of the pack when it comes to efficiency, and Buddy threw up a 50 banger the last time these two teams met. Need I say more.
SF Evan Fournier – His price is at $5300, and Brooklyn doesn’t have a defense. We all know this young man has the potential for a 35+ fantasy point night any given night. He only put up 25 the last time these two teams played, which is right below 5X return, but I am banking on all of this extra rest playing in his favor. I’ll be looking tonight for at least a 6X return.
PF Nemanja Bjelica – With Bagley out for now, our guy should see an extended run in minutes. His price comes in at $4500, and is averaging over 5X at that price on the season. The last time the teams met Bjelica put up a nice 35 fantasy point game. San Antonio is ranked 20th in defensive efficiency, which means that our guy with extended minutes it’s in a position to hit a high ceiling. I’m locking him in.
C Jakob Poeltl – With the absence of Aldridge and Lyles still out due to injury, this guy is an absolute lock for me. His price tag comes in at $4200, and will be facing a depleted Sacramento team, that when healthy are still only middle of the pack when it comes to to defensive efficiency at the position. In his scrimmage games without Aldridge and Lyles, he has definitely put up some good numbers. He should see an extended run in minutes tonight, and I am shooting for him to put up at least 6X return.
My HURRICANE pick of the night – Luka Doncic
I know that I write the value Street article, but I am going to be throwing in my hurricane pick of the night, which is who I think will be the absolute smash spot on the slate. This is the first time in a really long time that we have seen Luca sub $11,000. I will be getting a ton of exposure to him for the simple fact that James Harden does not play defense.
