Core Plays – Main Slate
Really who else are you going to play at the point guard position tonight? With all the injuries to the position especially if Anfernee Simons is ruled out tonight there really are no other point guards to roster. While I don’t feel good about rostering Bledsoe I am not going to be stupid and am locking in Bledsoe tonight.
Williams is my favorite of those value plays as he is just playing too many minutes right now. Williams has played at least 28 minutes in six straight games for the Pelicans. Williams is not just playing a lot of minutes but he is also producing. In those six games, Williams is averaging 8.5 points, nine rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.2 steals+blocks, and 28.63 fantasy points.
C – Jaxson Hayes-$5,500
I am not interested in Hassan Whiteside tonight as if he plays he is likely to be limited or Brook Lopez as Lopez is too inconsistent for me. With both of those guys off my radar that only leaves Hayes as an option at the center position and that makes him a core play. With that being said even if there were more options at the center position I would like Hayes as he has been excellent in his first two career starts. In those starts, Hayes is averaging 9.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, three blocks, and 1.5 steals. Hayes at least 32 fantasy points in each of those games. We should see Hayes start again tonight with the Pelicans still dealing with injuries in the frontcourt and I don’t see why we don’t see him produce against a Suns team that ranks in the bottom ten in fantasy points allowed per game to centers this season.
