SHOOTING GUARD:

James Harden (HOU) – $11,100

Opponent – Portland Trail-Blazers
Average for season – 45.8 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 54.2 Fantasy Points

Will be looking to bounce back after a poor game against the Suns in his last start.

CJ McCollum (POR) – $7,500

Opponent – Houston Rockets
Average for season – 32.0 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 33.2 Fantasy Points

Will be matched up here against the Rockets guards. Enough said.

Rodney Hood (UTA) – $5,900

Opponent – Phoenix Suns
Average for season – 22.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 22.4 Fantasy Points

Hood has a great match-up here against the hapless Suns and is in great form. A perfect mix.

 

SMALL FORWARD:

Kevin Durant (OKC) – $11,100

Opponent – Golden State Warriors
Average for season – 45.0 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 48.7 Fantasy Points

Durant will want to put his full range of skills on show to help the Thunder show they are legitimate contenders.

Gordon Hayward (UTA) – $8,200

Opponent – Phoenix Suns
Average for season – 31.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 32.3 Fantasy Points

Hayward has had a couple of down games so this is a great opportunity for him to bounce back against the under-manned Suns.

Stanley Johnson (DET) – $4,200

Opponent – Indiana Pacers
Average for season – 16.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 26.9 Fantasy Points

Tough match-up against the Pacers but is showing some great touch in the starting line-up in place of the injured Caldwell-Pope.

POWER FORWARD:

Draymond Green (GSW) – $8,800

Opponent – Oklahoma City Thunder
Average for season – 39.3 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 46.4 Fantasy Points

Going for his third triple-double in a row in what should be a great game against the Thunder.

Derrick Favors (UTA) – $6,400

Opponent – Phoenix Suns
Average for season – 30.8 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 36.4 Fantasy Points

Another player up against the Suns. There will be plenty of points to go around and Favors should get his share.

Josh Smith (HOU) – $3,500

Opponent – Portland Trailblazers
Average for season – 14.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 20.9 Fantasy Points

Has been a solid play every time he hits the court since the trade back to the Rockets.

CENTRE:

Dwight Howard (HOU) – $8,400

Opponent – Portland Trailblazers
Average for season – 33.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 26.1 Fantasy Points

The Blazers give up so many points to opposition Centres. Watch Howard dominate this one.

Marcin Gortat (WAS) – $6,900

Opponent – Charlotte Hornets
Average for season – 29.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.3 Fantasy Points

The Hornets are very weak at the Centre position so Gortat should be a lock for a double-double and a great value game.

Boban Marjanovic (SAS) – $3,600

Opponent – Los Angeles Lakers
Average for season – 11.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 9.7 Fantasy Points

A massive risk here but if big Boban gets any sort of decent court time he will be a great value play due to his great efficiency.
