A really interesting situation has developed in Atlanta with Dennis Schroder. The guard had issues with his Visa returning from the All-Star break, missed a mandatory team function and was suspended for last night’s game. In the last four games before the break, Schroder was averaging 36.5 DK PPG. Even better, the Hawks will face Orlando tonight. In three meetings so far this season, Schroder is averaging 41.25 DK PPG. The suspension may have impacted his price and will certainly impact his ownership.
I’ll buy on Lou Williams at this price because…how can you not? In one game with the Rockets, Williams scored 27 points while nailing seven 3PAs. He was a huge beneficiary of Harden looking like Point-God. I certainly don’t expect Lou-Will to score 27 every night, but his price is too low for this upside. The matchup with Minnesota should facilitate plenty of possessions and plenty of points.
On the other side of that game is Andrew Wiggins who is absolutely cooking right now. Coming off back-to-back 40+ point nights before the break and averaging 48.9 DK PPG in his last five. Expect Wiggins to pick up right where he left off in this explosive fantasy matchup with Houston. The concern with Wiggins is that his fantasy production is very closely tied to his real scoring.
All The Dario!!! Yes, I will be feasting on Dario Saric tonight who basically has the front-court to himself in Philadelphia. His last four before the break resulted in an average of 40.25 DraftKings points and now he steps into the starting lineup with both Ersan Ilyasova and Nerlens Noel dealt at the deadline. He dropped an impressive 20-11-4-1 line against Washington last night in 33 big minutes.
