POINT GUARD:

Chris Paul (LAC) – $9,800

Opponent – Sacramento Kings
Average for season – 38.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 49.2 Fantasy Points

Against the Fantasy-friendly Kings guards Paul should light it up and put up a big score.

Ish Smith (PHI) – $5,900

Opponent – Portland Trailblazers
Average for season – 25.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 42.1 Fantasy Points

Smith is currently the go-to guy in Philly and he will have the ball in his hands for a large percentage of the game.

Mario Chalmers (MEM) – $5,000

Opponent – New York Knicks
Average for season – 19.8 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 34.9 Fantasy Points

If Conley sits again Chalmers is a good chance to go off like he did last game (45.6 Fantasy Points).

Klay Thompson (GSW) – $8,100

Opponent – Detroit Pistons
Average for season – 29.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 23.9 Fantasy Points

Thompson has been quiet of late but it is only a matter of time before he has one of his high scoring games.

Lou Williams (LAL) – $6,400

Opponent – Utah Jazz
Average for season – 23.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 33.2 Fantasy Points

Lou has been on an absolute tear in 2016 and he should continue his stellar form here against the Jazz.

Opponent – New York Knicks
Average for season – 17.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 11.6 Fantasy Points

Has had three 20+ Fantasy Point games in his last five games which is great value for his price.

Average for last 3 – 21.4 Fantasy Points

Starting to hit form and get good minutes after a long lean patch. His price is great for his potential output.
