Fresh from Fantasy Stars: Our Moneyball NBA thoughts for Sunday the 13th March.
Overall thoughts on the slate of games
The Grizzlies are banged up with Randolph, Conley, Chalmers and Gasol all missing again today.
Vince Carter is questionable as well!
JaMychal Green’s price has finally been adjusted on Moneyball, the parties over sorry guys.
Norris Cole likely to miss again which boosts Jrue Holiday stocks once again.
Carl Landry and Nik Stauskas are starting in Philadelphia. Landry is coming off a big game against the Nets and should have plenty of opportunities again today.
Players to consider
Jrue Holiday (New Orleans) $8,200
Jrue is on a fantasy basketball scoring tear! Norris Cole likely to miss again today makes his stock stay sky high. Milwaukee have been leaking points and have had a host of injuries at the point guard position. They are also still missing John Henson who does a decent job of protecting the paint. Jrue will get to the rack at will tonight and he looks a lock to score 40 fantasy points.
Lance Stephenson (Memphis) $3,800
Wow, the Eighth Grader filled it up last night an enormous game for a bargain player. Thankfully, we had him in our lineups. He played 38 minutes and figures to get plenty of opportunities again today. As we mentioned in the overview the Grizzlies are banged up and Stephenson is one of few scoring options they have left.
Evan Fournier (Orlando) $4,800
Moneyball has moved him over to small forward which is fine with us because he’s a terrific value option tonight! We played him last night and he went for x6 production. Something similar tonight would be just fine thanks.
Carl Landry (Philadelphia) $3,500
Covington is out as is Okafor and Landry has been inserted into the starting lineup for tonight after putting up 16 points and 8 rebounds against the Nets last night. High ceiling for his price tonight and allows us to play Aldridge and Davis in some lineups.
Dewayne Dedmon (Orlando) $3,500
Did we not mention? Vucevic is out! We can’t give all the gold away in the intro. Dedmon doesn’t have the ceiling that Lance Stephenson does but he should have pretty low ownership today in a game against Portland that should suit him. Worst case he probably only gives us 15 fantasy points which is still not awful for his price and best case he can go high 20’s and allow us to spend up in the other positions.
