Picks for Sunday 24th January 2016:

POINT GUARD:

Damian Lillard (POR) – $8,400

Opponent – Los Angeles Lakers

Average for season – 36.3 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 25.3 Fantasy Points
Lillard has been badly out of form of late but against the very ordinary Lakers backcourt he should have a field day.

Michael Carter-Williams (MIL) – $7,400

Opponent – New Orleans Pelicans

Average for season – 27.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 23.9 Fantasy Points
In an uptempo game against the Pelican MCW should have lots of opportunities to scoure valuable Fantasy Points.

Emmanuel Mudiay (DEN) – $4,500

Opponent – Detroit Pistons

Average for season – 22.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 26.8 Fantasy Points
Has been great value of the past week and should get plenty of minutes again here.

SHOOTING GUARD:

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) – $7,500

Opponent – New Orleans Pelicans

Average for season – 30.3 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.7 Fantasy Points
Starting to really show why he is so highly touted. The Greek Freak should have all his skills on display against the Pelicans.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (DET) – $6,000

Opponent – Denver Nuggets

Average for season – 24.3 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 28.7 Fantasy Points
KCP has cracked 30 Fantasy Points in 3 of his past 6 games and should be good for that again here against the Nuggets.

Devin Booker (PHX) – $4,600

Opponent – Atlanta Hawks

Average for season – 13.0 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 24.6 Fantasy Points
Booker has been great in his past 2 games and with all the Suns injuries he should see plenty of the ball again .

SMALL FORWARD:

Paul George (IND) – $9,000

Opponent – Sacramento Kings

Average for season – 39.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 37.7 Fantasy Points
Was well held in his last game, against the Warriors, so look for him to bounce back strong against the Kings.

Khris Middleton (MIL) – $7,800

Opponent – New Orleans Pelicans

Average for season – 28.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 36.1 Fantasy Points
Has been absolutely on fire for the past month and is very tough to go past at his current price. 

Omri Casspi (SAC) – $5.600

Opponent – Indiana Pacers

Average for season – 23.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 24.2 Fantasy Points
If Gay sits again with injury then Casspi will be a great plug-and-play option.

POWER FORWARD:

DeMarcus Cousins (SAC) – $11,000

Opponent – Indiana Pacers

Average for season – 45.7 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 52.6 Fantasy Points
Cousins is easily the hottest player in the league right now and no one can stop him in this current form.

Kevin Love (CLE) – $7,300

Opponent – Chicago Bulls

Average for season – 33.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 30.0 Fantasy Points
Love has been hitting the boards hard in the past two games and expect him to do the same against the Bulls

Tristan Thompson (CLE) – $4,800

Opponent – Chicago Bulls

Average for season – 20.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 17.4 Fantasy Points
With Coach Blatt fired the players will have a point to prove. Look for Thompson to provide great value off the bench.

CENTRE:

Marc Gasol (MEM) – $8,400

Opponent – Minnesota Timberwolves

Average for season – 33.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 47.0 Fantasy Points
Gasol is a game-time decision but if he plays he should dominate against the rookie Towns.

Al Horford (ATL) – $7,600

Opponent – Phoenix Suns

Average for season – 31.4 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 30.2 Fantasy Points
Against an extremely undermanned Suns frontcourt Horford should be the pick of the Centres for this day’s slate.

Willie Cauley-Stein (SAC) – $3,500

Opponent – Indiana Pacers

Average for season – 14.0 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 25.7 Fantasy Points
The young rookie is getting more opportunities lately and with that comes greater consistency and higher Fantasy scores.
