J.J. Barea

With Wesley Matthews on the sidelines, J.J. Barea should see a couple extra minutes. Those minutes are incredibly valuable for a guy like Barea. Barea scores 0.5 fantasy points per possession, which is a rate higher than most point guards on the slate. If he plays 24 minutes as I expect, he’ll be looking at a projection of 27 fantasy points. This doesn’t take into account a matchup with one of the worst defenses in the league. There’s also the potential for additional minutes. It doesn’t matter which site you play him on, Barea looks great either way.

Harrison Barnes

Barea isn’t the only Maverick I’m targeting. Barnes is simply too cheap on both sites. He was limited to just 17 minutes on Saturday, but that was strictly due to foul trouble. Matthews being out is simply one less mouth to feed in Dallas. The upside for playing Barnes at this price can be seen in his game log for Dallas’s game against the Wizards last week where Barnes scored 45 fantasy points. In my model, Barnes has the third best per $1000 projection on the entire slate. He’s a no-brainer cash option.
