Spurs @ Bulls
Warriors @ Rockets
Heat @ Grizzlies
Hornets @ Nuggets
Clippers @ Mavs

Point Guard

Coby White, Chicago Bulls $6,100

Coby White did lose his starting job, but it might be the thing this young shooter might need to develop into a natural talent. So far, it has been a good transition for him; he scored 13 points, dished out five assists, and grabbed four rebounds coming off the bench in the Bulls game against the Raptors.

He is averaging 17.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.9 assists in his last ten games.

White is playing San Antonio tonight, who allows fifth-most fantasy points to point guards. The Spurs allow 26.4 points, 8.3 assists, and seven rebounds per game to point guards.

Shooting Guard

Andrew Wiggins, Golden State Warriors $5,700

Wiggins is averaging 15.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 steals in his last ten games. During that span of games, he was averaging 4.3 three-pointers attempts per game and is shooting 34.9 percent from three-point range.

Tonight he is playing the Rockets, who struggle at defending shooting guards. They allow 25.3 points, seven rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game to shooting guards.

Wiggins is a decent shooter who is facing off against a bad defense; all the elements are here for a big night for this Warriors’ guard.

Small Forward

Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings $6,500

After missing a few games with a foot injury, Barnes is back with a vengeance. He is averaging 18.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and shooting 53.2 percent from the field since returning from injury.

Barnes is facing off the Wizards, who allow the second-most fantasy points to small forwards. Washington allows 24.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game to small forwards.

Power Forward

Paul Millsap, Denver Nuggets $4,400

The Nuggets are dealing with injuries left and right which have opened the door for Millsap to get some extra minutes.

In his last ten games, Millsap is averaging 11 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and one steal.

Denver is playing the Hornets, who leave the post unattended at all times, so Millsap should have easy buckets and a ton of rebounds. The Hornets allow 24.6 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game to power forwards this season.

Center

Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers $5,900

The Pacers are struggling to stay playoff relevant and have a matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, who are among the better teams in the East.

There is a glimmer of hope for the Pacers to walk away with a victory, and that glimmer of hope is Myles Turner (I can’t believe I’m saying Turner is a savior. That’s enough whiskey for this guy).

He is averaging 12.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks in his previous ten games and should have a great night against the Nets, who struggle against centers.

Brooklyn allows 23.9 points, 14.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game to centers this season.

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.
