Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: Jan. 29-Feb. 4
However, he has gotten his starting job back and is playing very well in the new year, averaging On a side note, not for streaming purposes, but it's important to note that Jabari Parker available in As such, if you have room, he's worth a speculative add before he returns and gets swooped up.
Michael Beasley , New York Knicks available in Beasley is a bit of an enigma now, as the return of Tim Hardaway Jr. When Kristaps Porzingis , Enes Kanter and Hardaway are all healthy, Beasley has some games during which he doesn't get off the bench enough to do his thing. However, there are plenty of times when either one of the three sits or Beasley just gets hot; when that happens, he can drop plus points in a hurry, even off the bench.
Marcus Smart , Boston Celtics available in He missed Wednesday's game with a lacerated hand, so if that injury lingers, then Terry Rozier available in Which future fantasy stars stood out at Vegas summer league? Irving, Hayward ready to go for training camp Boston Celtics. Ginobili announces retirement after 16 seasons San Antonio Spurs. Who are the biggest fantasy risers and fallers during free agency?
How will LeBron's production change with the Lakers? Summer league's best and most surprising rookies Chicago Bulls.
Charlotte lottery pick Miles Bridges is coming Charlotte Hornets. Isaiah Thomas to sign with Nuggets Denver Nuggets. Hawks add Lin in trade with Brooklyn Brooklyn Nets.
Our experts answer the big questions. While Miles Bridges didn't have the most efficient showing in Las Vegas, it's clear he adds a level of unpredictability to the Charlotte Hornets. It is premature to throw the word "hope" around New York's chances to contend in , but the Knicks' future prospects have shined in Las Vegas. It's high-reward, low-risk for Denver and a chance for Thomas to re-establish himself. Veteran guard Jeremy Lin, who played only one game last season because of a ruptured patellar tendon, has been traded by the Nets to the Hawks, league sources told ESPN.
Who is the MVP? Who is the biggest bust? Who is the ROY? Our experts cast their votes and name their top breakout players for next season. This season's rookie class is chock-full of fantasy promise, but who are the best long-term bets among the likes of Lonzo Ball, Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell? What about Markelle Fultz and Jayson Tatum? The season isn't even in the books, and our experts are already scouting ahead. Which players are likely to fly under the radar heading into the season?
In fantasy, it always helps to identify potential breakout players as soon as possible. Here are a few names who could make that leap next season. Green has at least 37 fantasy points in his two games against them this season and there is no doubt in my mind that he easily exceeds that amount tonight. It also helps your narrative play when the player is playing well like Howard is with three of his past four games with double-doubles and the other team struggles in defending the position which the Magic do ranking 24th in fantasy points allowed to centers.
Give me the Greek Freak or MR. ABC all night long in this one. Giannis continues to play well and now has 17 of his past 18 games with at least 40 fantasy points. Giannis is also in a great match-up against a Knicks team that is struggling to stop anyone and is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to shooting guards. Giannis is going to be the highest scoring player on this slate and you need to play him in all of your cash game lineups.
