Last night was an ugly night for fantasy basketball, only a handful of players performed and it’s not surprising that some of our Sharks missed out by a little bit as well, exception of course to Crawford who just blew it. Sharks went 4-4 and Baits went 5-1. Tonight is again a slow night with just a bunch of games with a few value players in there. Nothing that expensive tonight, but I’m looking at a lot of players coming from their injuries to get up and running again.
Andrea Bargnani @ CHA (32+ FPTS) SHARK OF THE NIGHT – Bargs is back, and the Raptors need him now more than ever to salvage what’s left of their 15-win season. He has a very favourable match up tonight against the Bobcats who seem to have lost the will to play. They should keep it up in my opinion though to get a bigger chance landing the first pick in the draft. Looking for a huge night from Bargs tonight.
Nate Robinson @ UTA (23+ FPTS) VALUE SHARK – Nate has been solid playing the point for GS, and as Curry seems to be shutting down, it might be time for him to play at higher level to prove that he is a legitimate point guard in the NBA. He’s cheap, he’s starting and he’s up against a weak front court at Salt Lake City.
Danny Granger v NY (33+ FPTS) – The Pacers got destroyed by the Knicks last night and even their 42-point 4th quarter performance wasn’t close to enough. I’m looking at Granger and co. to bounce back tonight against the New York Knicks, they might not win, but they’re not blowing them out. They’re going to have to rely on Granger a lot and I see huge value with him tonight.
Danillo Gallinari v BOS (30+ FPTS) – Gallo has fallen from the face of fantasy basketball and is very cheap in daily cash games. He’s going up against a Pierce-less Celtics squad. The Celtics got ran over last night so tonight should be interesting. It’s always hard to play Denver, and they like high-scoring games as well. He’s been logging minutes, and tonight might be Gallo’s first big game since he got back.
Paul Millsap v GS (33+ FPTS) – Millsap should be able to take advantage of two things, Jefferson being out and the Warriors’ weak interior. They’re going to have to go to him for the most part when they play in the paint and Millsap should have no problem delivering. Get him in your line ups as well, or at least Favors.
