NBA Cash Core, December 3rd
Paul George – SF – 10.0k
This was tough and I almost went Durant here due to PG’s tougher match up but the pace of the Indy/Por game should produce more opportunities for George and his usage on the Pacers is 33%. The ball goes through him on the offensive end whereas Durant shares a bit more with Westbrook. For tonight I feel good with PG13 and his ability to reach 45 fantasy points (FP).
Isaiah Thomas – PG – 7.3k
The BOS/SAC game is projected to be the highest scoring game on the night by 15 points! Thomas has a usage of 30% and is get 32-35 min/game. He’s been consistent, putting up 30+ FP game after game. Rondo isn’t known for his defense and the extra possession will benefit Thomas’ production.
Avery Bradley – SG – 6.0k
Back to the Celtics/Kings game. With a lot of games not projected to be that high scoring tonight I’ll have my hand in this game a fair amount. Like most nights, I don’t care for SG but Bradley will have the chance to produce a solid night in an uptempo, high scoring game. His usage is only 21% but he plays a lot of minutes (36/gm) and the Kings give up 8% more points than average to SGs. The Kings are giving up 39 points/gm to SG and with slim pickings at the position tonight, Bradley is a solid option at only 6k.
Bismack Biyombo – C – 3.9k
He continues to be pretty low priced considering the amount of minutes he’s getting. Once again, FanDuel is asleep at the wheel on their pricing. I don’t love any of the high priced guy so Biyombo is a nice punt/value play. He’s averaged 32 min/gm over the L5 and only needs 17.5 points to hit value. He’s hit that 4 out of those 5 games and Denver is not good against bigs – the Nuggets give up 16% more points than average to centers. Run him out there and anything 20+ is great bonus.
