Memphis Grizzlies @ New Orleans Pelicans
Detroit Pistons @ Toronto Raptors
Boston Celtics @ Cleveland Cavaliers
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Los Angeles Clippers

Point Guards

Ricky Rubio, Cleveland Cavaliers $6,600

The Cavaliers have been a fun team to watch at the beginning of this season, but they were recently dealt a significant blow with the Collin Sexton torn meniscus. Usually, an injury to your star player dampens a team's expectation, but Ricky Rubio has been great coming off the bench and will be great as the starter in relief for Sexton.

If you haven't been watching Cleveland games, let me tell you you're missing out because Darius Garland and Ricky Rubio are playing fantastic together on the court. They have a +13.2 Net Points Differential (per 100 possessions) when on the court together. So, there will be plenty of points scored when you have two guys melding and playing well together.

He has been playing well recently; he averages 22.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.3 rebounds in his previous three games. One can assume with an increased workload, that kind of production should continue.

Rubio has a decent matchup against the Celtics, who are allowing 22.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.2 assists per game to point guards.

Marcus Smart, Boston Celtics $5,700

Jaylen Brown is dealing with a hamstring injury, so his playing time will most likely be limited during Boston's three-game road trip, which means Marcus Smart will be relied on to make some shots and create more for others.

It bodes well for Smart that he has a great matchup against Cleveland. The Cavaliers are allowing the third-most fantasy points (51.7) per game to point guards. They allow 24.8 points, 9.4 assists, and 6.1 rebounds per game to point guards.

Shooting Guards

Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers $10,000

George is having a great start to his season (some would say an MVP season). He is currently third in scoring and has the Clippers on a six-game winning streak.

Tonight, he has a fantastic matchup against the Timberwolves, who allow 20 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to shooting guards. The Timberwolves are just as bad against small forwards (which is where Paul spends most of his time), allowing 20.6 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game to small forwards.

Desmond Bane, Memphis Grizzlies $4,400

Memphis is being cautious with Dillon Brooks and his hand, So Desmond Bane will keep his increased workload for a little longer, which he has thrived in this season. He averages 15 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists for the season, and now he has a great matchup against New Orleans.

The Pelicans allow the third-most fantasy points (42.9) per game to shooting guards. They are allowing 24.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game to shooting guards this season.

Small Forwards

Saddiq Bey, Detroit Pistons $5,900

When you spend big money on a player like Paul George, you have to look for bargains on bad teams, and Saddiq Bey is that guy. He is second in scoring and rebounding and third in assists on the Pistons, so Bey is Detroit's most well-rounded player.

He is coming off two consecutive back-to-back double-digit games, and he should continue that streak against the Raptors. They allow 37.8 fantasy points, 20.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game to small forwards.

Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves $8,600

Edwards is having a successful sophomore season, averaging 25.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.6 steals. He hasn't scored less than 25 fantasy points so far this season, so Edwards is a guaranteed 25-plus fantasy point starter.

Tonight he has a decent matchup against the Clippers, who are allowing 20 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game to small forwards. Minnesota's leading scorer should have another outstanding performance trying to make his first All-Star appearance.

Power Forwards

Evan Mobley, Cleveland Cavaliers $6,800

As you read in the Ricky Rubio section, the Cavaliers are an exciting team, and Evan Mobley is their most exciting player to watch. He is averaging 15.3 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 blocks this season. His footwork in the post is a work of art which explains why he is averaging 17.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in his previous five games and should continue that production against Boston.

This season, the Celtics allow 24.4 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game to power forwards.

Do yourself a favor and watch this front-runner for rookie of the year do his magic on the court.

Bojan Bogdanovic, Utah Jazz $5,100

Boogie struggled against his former team scoring only eight points, but Bogdanovic was on an absolute tear before that game. He was averaging 17 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.5 assists before his eight-point stinker.

Now, he has a tough matchup against the Heat, but he had decent success against the Heat throughout his career. He averages 14.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and shoots 41.6 percent from three-point range against Miami in his career.

Center

Mo Bamba, Orlando Magic $6,700

Well, I spent lots of my budget on other positions, so I went cheap at the center position, and Mo Bamba is the best value option at center.

Bamba is getting the right amount of minutes as a starter and has put up decent production. He is averaging 9.7 points and 7.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in his previous five games; so, he could walk away with a double-double with the right matchup.

Unfortunately, his matchup is against the Wizards, who have played centers tough this season. They only allow 17.1 points, 15.5 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game to centers (51.6 fantasy points per game).

Start Bamba and hope he has a game like he had in his first three games of the season (averaged 14.3 points, 9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists).
