Pickups/Starts For The Week

Markelle Fultz, Orlando Magic, PG/SG (41%)

Fantasy owners still see Fultz as the first round bust that can’t shoot, but Fultz’s time in Orlando proving that narrative wrong.

In his last five games, Fultz is averaging 15 points, 4.4 assists per game, and shooting 58.8 percent from the field.

In Week 7, he has two favorable matchups against the Wizards and Cavaliers. Last time he played Washington, he scored 19 points, dished out two assists, and shot well from three.

In his previous matchups against Cleveland, Fultz averaged 13.5 points and five assists.

Don’t let Fultz’s past keep you from victory this week.

Glenn Robinson III, Golden State Warriors, SG/SF (35%)

In Week 7, the Warriors play Atlanta, Charlotte, and Chicago, all defenses that are in the top ten in Fantasy points allowed per game. Fantasy owners need to jump on one of the Warriors’ starters, and Robinson should be the chosen one.

He’ll have plenty of scoring opportunities, he is averaging 31.8 minutes per game. He has been consistent scorer with those minutes. Robinson has scored double-digit points in 11 out of the 19 games played.

Robinson is on a hot streak. In his past three games, he is averaging 17.7 points, 4.3 assists, and shooting 53.8% from the three-point line.

Sits For The Week

Larry Nance Jr., Cleveland Cavaliers, PF/C (77%)

Nance has had double-digit rebounds in his past three games, but that is going to end in Week 7 because he has to face the monstrous frontcourts of the Pistons and Sixers.

The Pistons allow only 10.83 rebounds per game to power forwards, and the Sixers allows only 10.57 rebounds. Philadelphia is dominant defensively against power forwards, they allow 19.04 points per game.

Nance is a bench-player facing two robust defenses and isn’t as good of a scorer as Kevin Love or Tristan Thompson to stay on the court. Look elsewhere for rebounds.

Joe Ingles, Utah Jazz, SG/SF (60%)

Ingles is struggling to make an impact this season. He is averaging 7.2 points per game and shooting 47.5% from the field, the lowest for Ingles since the 2016 season. He isn’t going to increase his scoring in Week 7 (Philadelphia, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis).

When Ingles failed to score, he would make it up to Fantasy owners with his rebounding, but going against Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, and Ben Simmons is going to hamper his rebounding.

Rudy Gay, San Antonio Spurs, SF/PF (54%)

Gay has only two games (Houston and Sacramento) in Week 7, and Houston will be a tough matchup for Gay.

The Rockets have been above average in defense against small forwards, especially when it comes to the three-point line. Gay has only made one three-pointer in three games.

In his previous three games, he is shooting 36% from the field, so don’t expect him to switch the flip where he becomes a scoring machine.

Fantasy is about volume and opportunity, and Gay doesn’t have either, so stay away.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
