Reggie Jackson ($5,200) vs Jazz- Reggie Jackson continues to be a great 3rd option for a Clippers team that is always looking for help besides Kawhi & Paul George. In game 3, he was 6/8 from the field including 5 threes and 3 assists, which was good for 27.25 FPTS on the night. Jackson doesn’t produce a lot other than points and 3s but he has been extremely involved in the offense as of late. With the way Jackson is shooting right now, I would find it tough to pass him up at this price after what he has shown in games 2-3 in this series.
Jordan Clarkson ($6,100) vs Clippers- Jordan Clarkson just continues to put up numbers off the bench for the Jazz. In the last 4 games, he is averaging 20.0 PPG 2.3 APG, and is shooting 43.3% from the 3 point line. This is good for 29.1 FPPG and he has been putting up numbers that align well with what we saw from him in the regular season. Like Jackson, Clarkson doesn’t do much other than shoot and hit three-pointers but I think that could be valuable in a game like this. With 30+ FPTS in 3 of the last 5 games, I am going to have Clarkson in my roster at this price and hope the good shooting continues.
Tobias Harris ($8,100) vs Hawks- When talking about the 76ers, a lot of people forget about Tobias Harris. Harris has proven to be an elite scorer over the course of the playoffs and most of his career. In the 1st three games of this series, he has put up 21.3 PPG 8.0 RPG 4.0 APG on an extremely efficient 60.4% from the field. With no Deandre Hunter for the Hawks, their defense leaves a lot to be desired and Harris has been able to get whatever he wants at the rim. With Embiid playing the way he is Harris should have lots of open lanes to score and I expect him to stuff the stat sheet again on the road vs Atlanta.
Marcus Morris ($4,300) vs Jazz- Consistency has been an issue for Marcus Morris in the playoffs and it continues to be a problem for fantasy owners. He shot 60% in the Clippers last game but he was only 3/5 from the field. We expect more from Morris, who shot 47% from 3 in the regular season. We have seen flashes but it has yet to come full around for the forward. There isn’t much to go off with this play other than Morris being a much better player than he has shown thus far. Morris can get hot and at this price that is all we are going to be asking for.
Rudy Gobert ($7,400) vs Clippers- Gobert hasn’t been putting up the point totals that we saw in the Grizzlies series, but he continues to be a double-double machine and a beast on the defensive end. In the last 4 games, he is averaging 14.5 PPG 14.3 RPG, and 2.3 BPG. The newly minted defensive player of the year has proven why he was handed the honor and is constantly turning blocks into easy fantasy points. While he may not score over 15 PTS he will do enough to be a valuable option at the center position for fantasy owners.
Matisse Thybulle ($3,100) vs Hawks- With the injury to Danny Green it is unclear what the Sixers rotation will exactly look like, but we could see more minutes from Matisse Thybulle. Thybulle is a defensive wizard, consistently racking up steals and blocks when he gets ample playing time. Despite his lack of offense he has still been able to put up respectable numbers and could see a lot more time on the court tonight. There is a risk here because of the lack of offense but if you think he will see the floor now, there could be an upside for a player this cheap in a 2 game slate.
