Eric Bledsoe has exploded in the last two weeks, carrying the entire Suns offense on his shoulders. He’s turned in three straight games of 51+ DraftKings points which is also marks six times he’s accomplished that feat in his last nine games. Despite the insane run, his price has only crept to $7,800. Bledsoe has fairly extreme home/road splits and is seven DraftKings points better at home on the year. On paper, the matchup with San Antonio isn’t great, but they are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing PGs. The Suns play at a torrid pace which is very beneficial to Bledsoe.
Dwyane Wade is Mr. Consistent for the Chicago Bulls and his fantasy owners. Since November 17th, Wade has failed to reach 5x value just once (he scored 4.85x). That’s a ten game stretch of him never laying an egg and averaging 6.21x value in the process. I didn’t run a total report, but at first glance, I couldn’t find another player priced this highly who has hit 5x value that often. Wade is capable of filling up every category and gets a superb matchup with Milwaukee tonight.
I’m going to keep a close eye on the injury report out of Indy. Rodney Stuckey left the game early last night which could open up an extra 20 minutes and potentially ten shots tonight for someone else if Stuckey doesn’t suit up. I’d keep an eye on C.J. Miles are a potential beneficiary. He’s volatile as all hell but can produce big games with extended run. The last three games that he’s played at least 20 minutes, he’s score 32.5, 13 and 31.5 DraftKings points. The ceiling is there for Miles who scored 15 real points in 22 minutes last night off the bench. The Pacers are already down Monta Ellis so it could be a short bench tonight.
The talent of Marquese Chriss is really impressive but at this point he’s only worth a GPP flier. We saw the Chriss ceiling on Tuesday night, with a big time 15-14 double double, scoring 34.5 DraftKings points. Let’s hope that game is a catalyst for Chriss to starting doing this on a nightly basis. The Suns have given him every opportunity but Chriss has hurt himself not being able to stay on the court. This guy is in foul trouble the second he steps into the arena. Be careful with too much exposure to Chriss, but I will roll a bit with the hot hand.
