So we posted our must-have for this slate a little while ago just to remind everyone
Stephen Curry $9,300-
Curry has seemingly been back to his old form in the preseason and without Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in the season opener versus the Nets he will be relied upon heavily to keep this game within striking distance. He has the 4th highest salary on the slate and will likely have the highest usage rate making him a great play on this 2 game slate.
The rest of the guys we like for this slate though are
Kelly Oubre Jr. $6,700-
Oubre will look to take the load off of Curry and Wiggins tonight and he will likely draw less defensive attention than the other 2. I expect Oubre to hit a few 3 pointers, pick up a few defensive stats, and a couple of rebounds, on a 2 game slate he is in a decent spot to have a nice game for a value price.
Serge Ibaka $5,200-
Even though I want to go with Wiggins in a spot to pay up a little bit I think Ibaka will save you salary and get you near 30 fantasy points. I am not sure how Ibaka will fit in LA but on paper, his game fits perfectly in that offense and he should thrive for a cheap price, allowing you to fit the studs into your lineups.
Joe Harris $4,800-
It’s all speculation at this point on how the Nets offense will run but that leaves us to believe that most defensive attention will gravitate to Kyrie and Durant leaving Harris lightly guarded around the arch. Harris definitely is not a safe play but in GPP he has the chance to hit a good amount of 3 pointers and put together a solid fantasy game for a below-average price tag.
Eric Paschall $3,800-
For my punt play tonight I am going to roll with Paschall. Draymond is out tonight so it will leave more minutes for Paschall to get on the floor. Last season down the stretch Paschall scored over 30 fantasy points in 6 of his last 7 games and while I don’t expect that same type of performance with the addition of Oubre and Curry back, I do expect him to put together a solid fantasy day for a near minimum price on a slate that you will need to find value on.
For this two-game slate we suggest having these guys in most of your lineups. This information was brought to us by Tyler Beard @tyslice23 he has written for many sites in the past and will be helping us out with NBA this year
