Welcome to the SharkTank ladies and gents!
Here at the tank I cover who’s good, and who we might think is good, in our 7-game Saturday!
I’ll be posting updates, extra Sharks, and everything fantasy related on Twitter throughout the day as well. So feel free to follow me @chrisdco
Shark-O-Meter: 71-39 65%
Shark of the Night: 5-2 71%
Value Shark: 6-1 86%
John Wall v CLE (32+ FPTS) SHARK OF THE NIGHT – I’m not so sure how the Cavaliers are going to stop Wall tonight, and it’s going to be hard to imagine John Wall not going in attack mode against them. He’s up against one of the more weaker defenses overall in the NBA and I’m pretty sure he knows it when he sees it. Whether it be Ramon Sessions or Kyrie Irving, it really shouldn’t matter as he has the ability to just outplay them. Get Wall in all of your lineups.
Rodrigue Beaubois v UTA (18+ FPTS) VALUE SHARK – Beaubois has been given another chance by Carlisle and he did make it count. There have been talks about the Mavericks giving up on him and including him in trade talks, all of which fuelled him to do better, a lot better. I love the opportunity presented to him and what I love more is his match up tonight. I like match ups against the Jazz frontcourt and it seems like it’s just the right time and the right opportunity for him.
Kevin Durant @ ATL (43+ FPTS) – There is aboslutely no stopping Kevin Durant. It seems to me that scoring 20 somewhat points in a game is already a bad one for him. I like tonight’s match up against the Hawks and Durant will see different bodies in front of him. He is though, Kevin Durant and he scores when he wants to. I’m putting him up here because of his defense as well, and we all know the Hawks can get really sloppy with the ball. I’m waiting for a huge line for him tonight.
Nicolas Batum v MIN (29+ FPTS) – The train is still on it’s tracks, speeding up a little bit tonight for Batum. I love his match ups as he’s going to face a lot of different defenses tonight. I do think this game is going to be up and down the court whether or not both teams like it. It’s gonna be about defense and transition, so I’m looking a lot of stats across the board for Batum. He also won’t stop until everyone recognizes his ability and the right price tag for his services.
Dwight Howard v MIL (42+ FPTS) - Dwight gets another does of Milwaukee, third meeting of the season. The two previous games were closely fought as his Magic had to play hard to fend off the Bucks on both occasions. I’m going to say the same for tonight, I’ll be honest and say the Bucks could get an upset here but as long as it’s a tightly contested game, I’m playing Dwight. I love his match ups tonight as well against Drew Gooden and Ersan Ilyasova.
No baits tonight fellas! Our pool is in my opinion, very small to choose from! There isn’t a lot of guys there worth getting!
