The All-Star Break is now over and we have three games to get you right back into the regular season:
With three games, is it easier to pick your lineups?
In some ways, yes. There are fewer teams and players to choose from. However, your risk of having a bad night with any of your players is higher because you have fewer teams to choose from. So now, let's get to my lineup for this day.
PG: John Wall, Wizards ($10,400) - Wall is the most expensive player available today. But to be fair, Wall has scored at least 27.4 fantasy points in each of his last ten games. After networking with many NBA stars this past weekend, he should be rejuvenated for the late season playoff push.
PG: Trey Burke, Jazz ($4,000) - Burke was out with the flu for the last several games, but with over a week off, he should be fully healthy to put up some decent numbers.
SG: J.J. Redick, Clippers ($5,000) - Redick scored over 24 fantasy points in three of his last four games. If he gets going, he's as good of a bang-for-your-buck as anyone.
SG: Rodney Hood, Jazz ($6,000) - Hood has scored 30 or more fantasy points in five of his last ten games. He should still be in good form for tonight's match against D.C.
SF: Kawhi Leonard, Spurs ($7,700) - Leonard has scored over 40 fantasy points in each of his last three games. If he can score over 20 point tonight, great chance he'll do it again vs. the Clippers.
SF: Otto Porter, Wizards ($5,300) - Porter is a reliable 20 plus fantasy point a game option. He's a good pick at $5,300.
PF: LaMarcus Aldridge, Spurs ($7,500) - Aldridge scored 35 or more fantasy points in each of his last six games. With a big matchup against the Clippers tonight and with Blake Griffin out, he's primed for another great performance.
PF: Jared Dudley, Wizards ($4,600) - When this man's three-point stroke's going he'll get you over 20 fantasy points easily. He has done so in six of his last eight games.
C: Pau Gasol, Bulls ($9,000) - We've seen vintage Pau over the Bulls' last ten games. He played in nine of them, scoring at least 35 fantasy points in each game. He's not just scoring and rebounding. He also dished five or more assists in five out of his last nine games played!
