De’Anthony Melton ($3,400)-
Melton has been solid coming off of the bench since the injury to Morant. In the past two games, he has averaged nearly 20 minutes per game but is posting a usage rate above 22 and is a solid player to target for efficient production at a punt price that will allow you to get in some of the studs in your lineups.
Joe Harris ($5,500)-
With both Durant and Kyrie out last game it was Harris’ time to shine and he did not disappoint, he posted a 27 usage rate and scores 46 fantasy points. With both Kyrie and Durant likely out again tonight do not overthink this, just stick Harris in your lineups and enjoy the salary relief.
Caris LeVert ($7,400)-
Much like the play on Harris, this is a direct result of Kyrie and Durant being out again tonight. Last game without them LeVert saw 11 extra minutes than the game prior and had a usage rate of 37.5. In that game, he scored 50.75 fantasy points and with only a $600 increase in salary, he is a key player to target on tonight’s slate.
Jason Tatum ($9,200)-
Tatum has been a monster this season, he has averaged around 35 minutes per game and a usage rate near 30. In his past 4 games, Tatum has gone for 42+ fantasy points in all of them and eclipsed 56 in two of those games. In a relatively soft match-up tonight I expect similar production and with all the value on the slate, he will not be hard to fit in.
Daniel Theis ($4,300)-
With nearly all the big men on the Celtics out tonight Theis should get the start and play a ton of minutes in tonight’s game. Theis has been hit or miss on the season so far but he has posted a solid usage rate in the majority of his games and with the covid quarantines that the Celtics are facing he should be in line for an increased role at a value price.
