As usual, the NBA Christmas Day didn’t let us down! Great games and several unbelievable performances on both the 25th and the 26th. And now we’re ready to go again with the 3rd matchday of the season, a matchday in which the Miami Heat and the Toronto Raptors won’t participate. What does that mean? That their players will automatically get the average score they registered through the first 2 games. It goes without saying that we will not include those players in our tips for M3.
- Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz, 17.6 credits): The Frenchman is already one of the best fantasy players per se. Factor in that the Jazz will be taking on the Thunder and you’ll find your recipe for success.
- Jarrett Allen (Brooklyn Nets, 10.8 credits): Allen is coming off a very good display against the Celtics, so a match-up against the Hornets shouldn’t be a problem for him nor for the fantasy coaches that will pick him.
- James Wiseman (Golden State Warriors, 10.3 credits): You can already sense his tremendous potential on both ends of the floor, even though Golden State got run over in the first 2 games. On M3, the Warriors could finally get their first win as they take on the Bulls, so we advise you to give this young man a chance.
- Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks, 13.8 credits): Just WOW! He’s been the real superstar of the Bucks so far, both on the floor and on your fantasy teams. And now Milwaukee will face the Knicks: what else?
- Tobias Harris (Philadelphia 76ers, 12.2 credits): Since the Sixers are on the second leg of a back-to-back, it wouldn’t be surpring if Doc Rivers gave Embiid some rest. Moreover, even if that wasn’t the case, the match-up against the Cavs would be a good enough reason to pick Harris anyway.
- Joe Ingles (Utah Jazz, 9.4 credits): In a team led by Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, Ingles always finds a way to fill up the stat sheet and make our fantasy coaches proud. Bet on the Utah Jazz against the Thunder.
- Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors, 17.7 credits): Just like Steph said, the Warriors need a win, immediately. There’s only one man that can turn this situation around for them, and it’s Steph himself. We expect to see him at an MVP level on M3.
- Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks, 12.6 credits): Easy task for the Bucks this time around as they take on the Knicks. Holiday’s already fitting in pretty well with his new teammates, putting up good stats and proving himself as one of the best options in this range of credits.
- Caris LeVert (Brooklyn Nets, 11 credits): The Nets are on the first leg of a back-to-back against the Hornets, which means that Durant and Irving might take some minutes off. LeVert has been doing well so far, so there’s no reason not to trust him in a scenario like this.
- Steve Kerr (Golden State Warriors, 7.3 credits): We’re only 2 games in and it’s already kind of a “do or die” situation for Golden State. But when the Warriors’ back is against the wall, expect them to come back swinging.
