Tonight begins Game 1 for the Miami/Chicago and the Golden State/San Antonio series.
Big Money Ballers
Joakim Noah(C, 93600) - Noah for this price is absolutely crazy. His foot is feeling great again and he dominated the Nets game seven with a huge double double and 6 Blocks! Miami is not going to be able to slow him down and he rebounds and puts back in shots for fantasy glory.
LeBron James (F, 164000) - King James may seem like an obvious play but he’s usually not quite worth the money you have to spend for him. Tonight is a little different, Wade is not 100% which always increases LBJ’s production and on such a small slate of games he becomes a must play for his tremendously high ceiling.
Tony Parker (G, 132000) - Tony Parker balled so hard against the Lakers and now he has had plenty of rest and will look to ball so hard against Curry. He is also 40000k cheaper than Curry tonight with a whole ton upside and a nice high floor.
DeJuan Blair(C, 55200) - Blair has been putting up some decent fantasy numbers the last 2 games in the series with the Lakers. With Splitter most likely out tonight he will see enough minutes to pay for his low salary. If Splitter plays buyer beware because Popp’s rotations change all the time.
Jimmy Butler(F, 84000) – Butler has seen a nice increase in production with Luol Deng sick. Deng has been ruled out of tonight’s game one already meaning Butler will see close to if not over 40 minutes once again.
Kawhi Leonard(F, 90400) - Golden State is lacking anyone to shut down Leonard’s production. The Warriors pretty much lack defense altogether. The Spurs will need Kawhi on both offense and defense as they look to slow down the high scoring Warriors.
Marco Belinelli(G, 45600) - Belinelli is hands down a must play tonight for his ridiculously low price. With Deng already ruled out Marco will start and play at least 30+ minutes.
Mario Chalmers(G, 77600) - Chalmers has been surprisingly productive in the playoffs. Don’t be fooled Miami still remains the team of the Big 3, but with so few options tonight Super Mario will round out a team nicely.
