PF – Trevor Booker (MIL@BKN) – (FPPG: 28.1 & Salary: $5,900):
Trevor Booker has averaged at least double figures in PTS and REB in his last 4 contests and has an ideal matchup against a Bucks team next later this evening. Milwaukee’s D has been one of the top 10 worst defenses in the league in their past 10 games when compared to all other NBA teams in that stretch of play right now in terms of the FPPG they’ve allowed to opposing PF’s this year. However, Booker’s price tag is starting to reach a level now where he’s almost not worth starting, but noticed I said “almost,” meaning, play him now while he’s still a fairly reasonable buy on FanDuel and give him a go in any type of format.
SG – Sean Kilpatrick (MIL@BKN) – (FPPG: 24.9 & Salary: $5,700):
In his last game, Sean Kilpatrick had an eye-opening performance scoring a season-high 38 points and grabbing a season-high 14 boards as well in a huge volume of minutes (47). In two out of three games prior to that contest, he also managed to average 30+ FPG, so with Brooklyn’s backcourt still missing one of its key players (Jeremy Lin, hamstring), Kilpatrick has made it a point to step it up big time for his squad in the meantime in hopes of getting that key part to his team’s starting lineup in the near future. This pick faces a Milwaukee team next that has one of the top 10 worst defenses in the NBA right now at minimizing opposing SG’s average FP totals. Kilpatrick should once again be utilized heavily, minutes wise, and is a good bet of finishing with another ample amount of FP when it’s all said and done later today. He’s a very nice GPP/tourny play option at this time and a viable option in cash games too.
PG – Andrew Harrison (ORL@MEM) – (FPPG: 16.7 & Salary: $3,900):
Andrew Harrison had arguably his best game of the season last night against the Raptors (filling in for injured starting PG Mike Conley, back) in where he finished with a season/career-high 21 PTS (hitting a season/career-high 4 three-pointers), dished out 4 assists, had 3 steals and grabbed 2 boards and in 35 minutes of action. He ideally goes up against a Magic team next that has allowed the 9th most FPPG to opposing PG’s this season (tied with one other team), so while it’s hard to say whether or not Harrison will continue from where he left off in his last game, he at least seems like a decent bet to finish with a FP total that comes somewhere close to what he put up on Wednesday (which was 33.4 FP). After all, he’s worth taking a chance on today when you factor in dirt cheap salary requirement at the moment on top of how well he’s been playing of late. Harrison is my FanDuel NBA Sleeper Picks Bargain Bin Player of the Day.
