Which players should you build around and which players should you fade in DFS as we tip off Monday’s NBA action? Our experts have the answers.
The Grizzlies rank last in pace, and though Simmons finally had a decent game Saturday vs. Milwaukee, he hasn’t come close to exceeding value in the last two weeks. It’s quite possible he gets back to regularly scoring 45-55 fantasy points for the 76ers, but until that happens, I’d rather spend on Blake Griffin, or save with Lauri Markkanen tonight.
I’ve really been disappointed with the growth, or lack thereof, for Wiggins through his 3.5 seasons in The Association and as his DFS price tag dips, I expect far too many players to be seduced by the raw skills here. Be careful.
“It was just another game,” he said.
He nearly had a happy return, but the Trail Blazers couldn’t hold a late lead.
Lillard gave Portland a 93-86 advantage with a 3-pointer, but the Nuggets rallied to take a 97-95 lead on Mason Plumlee’s dunk. CJ McCollum made two free throws and Lillard hit a running bank shot to give Portland a 99-97 lead with 41.7 seconds left.
He was fouled on the play but missed the free throw.
Bucs quarterback Josh McCown attempted just three passes in the second half and took a safety on the game’s final meaningful play late in the fourth quarter, a play in which he was protected by three offensive linemen who had barely seen the field that season. Those points — the last in a string of 16 unanswered by the Saints — cemented a 23-20 New Orleans win.
