1) FANTASY LINE OF THE WEEK
2) FANTASY SLEEPER PICKUP OF THE WEEK*
*LESS THAN 20% OWNED IN 12 TEAM LEAGUES ON ESPN
3) TOP SELL HIGH CANDIDATES
4) TOP DROP CANDIDATES OF THE WEEK
1) Fantasy Line of the Week
James Harden, Houston Rockets
61Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 19/34 Fg, 9/13 3PM, 14/17 Fts
03/22/2019 vs SAS
It was a career high tying night for The Beard who may have solidified his case for back-to-back MVP Awards after his game on Friday night vs the Spurs. His coach Mike D’Antoni may not be lying when he said the only man who can stop James Harden is the coach himself…. by benching him. Aside from that, Harden is as close to unguardable as there is in this league.
JaVale McGee, Los Angles Lakers
33Pts, 20 Reb, 6 Blk, 1 Stl, 15/20 Fg
03/22/2019 vs BKN
With the Lakers on the brink of elimination, JaVale came out with his best performance of the season. But as you probably expected, the Lakers still lost and are officially toast for the 2018-2019 season.
2) Fantasy Sleeper Pickup of the Week
Taurean Prince, Atlanta Hawks
15.3 Pts, 2.3 Ast, 3.3 Reb, 1.3 Stl, 3.0 3PM in the last 7 days
After spending much of the year on the IR, Prince finally appears to be healthy and producing the kind of stats owners were expecting when he was drafted in the top 80 this season. Look for him to close out the year strong for this red-hot Atlanta Hawks team
Emmanuel Mudiay, New York Knicks
17.8 Pts, 5 Ast, 2.8 Reb, 0.5 Blk, 1.5 3PM in the last 7 days
While the Knicks appear content with “Not Try’in for Zion”, Mudiay has been able to put up some impressive numbers of late, putting up 18 pts and 5 assists on 46% shooting over the last week.
3) Top Sell High Candidate
Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers
With the Cavs firmly out of the playoff race, look for them to start reducing the workload off some of their vets down the stretch. Love has been playing great basketball of late, which doesnt bode well for the “Stop tryin for Zion” supporters in The Land
Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat
Bam has been on a tear of late, but as is with all Miami players, he will always be at risk of falling out of the rotation (see: Kelly Olynk).
4) Top Drop Candidate of the Week
Jabari Parker, Washington Wizards
This might seem crazy based on the numbers he has out up lately, but hear me out. His minutes have been cut by almost 12 per game over the last 2 contests as Washington has been said to be going with a Portis/Thomas Bryant frontcourt for the last 10 or so games, meaning Jabari will be riding a lot of pine. Dont say I didn’t warn you!
Hassan Whiteside, Miami Heat
Speaking of Heat rotations, Hassan Whiteside has moved to Miami’s bench, and it appears to be hitting the big man’s numbers hard, as he played just 5 minutes in games against the Wizards and Thunder this past week. While he can still be a sources for blocks, move off of him if there is someone better on your wire.
There you have it! Tune in again next week for your weekly Fantasy Basketball Fix!
