Unless the NBA decides to postpone some games over the next few hours, M17 shouldn’t see any players getting their average score. Moreover, we’re going to have many more teams on the second round of this matchday than we had on M16. Here are our tips!
- Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets, 23.3 credits): After a series of unreal performances, Jokic kind of came back down to Earth in his last 2 outings. However, we expect him to be the best fantasy player once again on M17 against the Spurs.
- Richaun Holmes (Sacramento Kings, 12.1 credits): The match-up against the Raptors should make him pretty comfortable, which means he could very easily notch another double-double.
- Enes Kanter (Portland Trail Blazers, 9.2 credits): Since Nurkic’s injury, Kanter has definitely stepped up and turned into the best low-cost option at center, and it’s not even close.
- Domantas Sabonis (Indiana Pacers, 18.2 credits): He just recorded a triple-double against the Hornets and there’s no reason to think that he can’t do it again or at least put up some great stats anyway. He’s looking better and better and, even if he costs quite a lot, he’s a safe bet in this match-up.
- De’Andre Hunter (Atlanta Hawks, 9.9 credits): The Hawks should have no problem getting past the Wizards and Hunter is proving to be a really valuable fantasy player who also happens to be pretty low-cost.
- Chris Boucher (Toronto Raptors, 9.3 credits): He’s coming off some bad performances, but he already showed that he can be one of the most important assets to Nick Nurse’s team. It’s a risky option, but you might reap the rewards.
- Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls, 14.5 credits): After getting his average score on M16, Zach will be back on the court to take on the Portland Trail Blazers. He’s the heart and soul of these Bulls and can get you a very high score while allowing you to save some credits.
- Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies, 12.6 credits): The Grizzlies are back, too and 2020’s Rookie Of The Year is ready to make waves against a Spurs team that will be on the second leg of a back-to-back.
- Eric Bledsoe (New Orleans Pelicans, 9.7 credits): Considering everything that’s going on with Lonzo, he’s now clearly going to get a lot more minutes on the court. Knowing the player that Bledsoe is, more minutes should translate into many more fantasy points, since he clearly know how to fill up the stat sheet.
- Lloyd Pierce (Atlanta Hawks, 8 credits): Despite Bradley Beal’s efforts, the Wizards have an awful record. Even though the Hawks aren’t exactly the most regular team as far as results go, they’re the clear favorite this time around.
- Taylor Jenkins (Memphis Grizzlies, 7.7 credits): The Spurs are going up against the Nuggets and the Grizzlies back-to-back, with Memphis being the second game. On the other hand, the Grizzlies had the chance to rest during the last few days, so they should take the win on this one.
