Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to a massive 11-game slate. There are no shortage of options tonight and a few pieces of news are still unclear (including the potentail suspension of James Johnson). Still, other tidbits of news have already changed the landscape of the slate and have created some borderline must-plays. As per usual, this article will focus on some of those players. Without further ado, let’s get to work…
Note: this article is typically based on salaries from both DraftKings (DK) and FantasyDraft (FDr)
With Anthony Davis already ruled out for tonight’s game, most of the players on the team will enjoy a boost in value, because more of the offense will have to run through the players who are left standing. One of those players is Rajon Rondo and his price point is arguably the most appealing of the bunch. Despite the fact he is priced at just $5,700 on DraftKings, Rondo has looked more like a $7,000 player when Davis has sat previously this year: 11.5 points per game (PPG), 7.3 rebounds per game (RPG), 10.0 assists per game (APG), 0.8 steals per game (SPG) and 37.3 fantasy points per game (FPPG) in 31.0 minutes per game (MPG). Sure, the Grizzlies are both tough against point guards (PGs) and play at a slow pace, but the potential downside is more than factored into his insanely cheap price. Rondo likely has the highest probability for a double-double of any player priced below $6,000 tonight and fantasy owners need to simply accept a gift when it is given to them.
