Favorite Plays

Stud Player to Avoid

Joel Embiid

Embiid has not been lighting the world on fire since his return from injury. In fact, Embiid has kind of sucked from a fantasy perspective as he has a high of 42.75 fantasy points and is only averaging 39.75 fantasy points since his return. If we look further back we will see that these are the kinds of numbers that Embiid has been putting up since he injured his thumb. In the five games since his thumb injury, Embiid has produced over 42 fantasy points just one time and has produced under 40 fantasy points in three of the five games. While there is always a chance that Embiid goes off and the center position is a weak one once again tonight I would much rather spend up on other players on this slate rather than Embiid.

Mid-Tier Player

Jae Crowder

Sometimes you don’t need a player that is going to go crazy to win. Sometimes all you need is consistency and that is exactly what Crowder brings to the table. Crowder has scored in double figures with at least six rebounds and a block or steal in each of the four games of this series. Crowder has at least 27 fantasy points in each of those games and is averaging a very solid 32.13 fantasy points per game.

Value Player

Maxi Kleber

There are not any dirt cheap players that blow me away on this slate and Kleber is closer to the mid-tier salary range than value salary range tonight. With that being said I am still putting Kleber in this spot as when you look at the fact that he can be used at the center position he is the best value on this slate. I say that due to the fact that the center position is weak as I talked about earlier and due to the fact that Kleber has been solid in this series. Kleber is averaging 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.8 steals+blocks in 30 minutes of action. Kleber has at least 18 fantasy points in each of the four games and is averaging 23.75 fantasy points per game.
