Rajon Rondo (6200 DK, 6500 FD) – Since DeMarcus Cousins went down with an injury, Rajon Rondo’s fantasy production per minute has increased by almost 10%. Over the past four games, Rondo has averaged 33.5 minutes. This combined with an up-pace matchup with the Clippers makes Rondo a prime candidate to greatly exceed value for his salary. Probability of top 3 positional value: 21% DK, 25.65% FD.
Milos Teodosic (4700 DK, 4400 FD) – With the lack of depth at guard, Teodosic has been seeing minutes in the high 20’s, but hasn’t put up any inspiring numbers quite yet. A matchup versus the Pelicans is favorable for him to exceed his recent production, and he has a bargain basement price for a starting point guard. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 13.6%, FD 21.65%.
Hassan Whiteside (6900 DK, 7200 FD) – Hassan Whiteside’s minutes lately haven’t been inspiring at first glance, but when you see the past two games he had one with foul trouble and one with a blowout it seems that low minutes are the exception and not the norm now. A pace-down matchup versus the Wizards isn’t ideal, but you’re getting a solid discount from what his salary should be based on his performance so far this season. Probability of top 3 positional value: 13.8% DK, 22.15% FD
