After the regular season, in a few days the NBA Playoffs will begin together with the DUNKEST FANTASY BASKETBALL

In view of this, various participants in the general rankings or in private leagues or drafts obviously want to anticipate the moves of their opponents and outsmart them. Precisely for this reason, we have decided to create in this article a list of players who could do well despite their low expectations and value:

Dorian Finney-Smith (FORWARD – DAL)

The outcome of this series certainly leans in favor of the Los Angeles Clippers, but that does not mean that Dallas players and coach Carlisle are to be underestimated. An example is Finney-Smith, who during the season proved to be a very eclectic player and useful to the team system. In view of the tough first round of the playoffs, he maybe not taken into consideration, but the results he could bring could surprise many.

Chris Boucher (FORWARD – TOR)

In the last two games of the season Boucher has shown excellent performances, with an average of 25 minutes played per game. Its use in the playoffs can only be considerably lower than the one indicated above, but it must be borne in mind that in the first round the Raptors will face the Brooklyn Nets. So, it might be likely that the Canadian forward will play several minutes and therefore bring good performances.

Monte Morris (GUARD – DEN)

After the injuries of Will Barton and Gary Harris many would have expected very bad games for the Nuggets. But what emerged in the first games is that players like Porter Jr. and Monte Morris have shown that they can be of a significative importance. In the bubble Morris showed great skill on the pitch and he has good potential. Jamal Murray’s return could limit this bet, but he could perform very well anyway.

Pat Connaughton (GUARD – MIL)

What lies ahead for Milwaukee is a rather simple first round to overcome, given the weaker roster and bad shape of the #8 Orlando Magic. Many of their players are suffering or are returning from various injuries and this can only benefit the Bucks even more. In all this, Pat has always been a good choice in recent seasons and there is no reason to deny him an opportunity even in these playoffs.

JaVale McGee (CENTER – LAL)

We conclude these tips with the #7 of the Lakers. Centers with low expectations that end up with good performances in the Playoffs are very rare. Precisely for this reason we choose JaVale, since he is one of the few cheap centers that can be a profitable choice. The one against Lillard’s Blazers may not be a worry-free series, but McGee may surprise on occasion.
