Top Four SGs

  1. DeMar DeRozan (Raptors) – $8,100 @ Suns (26th)
  2. Dwyane Wade (Heat) – $7,300 @ Rockets (21st)
  3. Khris Middleton (Bucks) – $7,100 @ Trail Blazers (22nd)
  4. Devin Booker (Suns) – $5,600 vs. Raptors (9th)

Rationale:

  • DeRozan scored 44.8 fantasy points against the Suns in their first meeting. Being defended by an inexperienced Booker should only aid DeRozan in finding value. He’s been better than his season average in two of his last three games.
  • Wade has turned back the clock lately and is scoring 46.6 FPPG over his last four games. He previously scored 39 fantasy points against the Rockets, and eight assists to go with his 20 points.
  • Middleton has played very well lately and has been better than his season average in nine of his last 11 games. He previously scored 25.8 fantasy points against the Blazers, but that was on a 30.8 percent shooting effort from the floor and 16.7 from three-point range. He should shoot better on Tuesday.
  • Booker has played well in an increased role, scoring 29.8 FPPG in his last seven games. The potent three-point shooter has proven that he has an offensive game fit for the NBA, though the rookie does need to improve defensively. He has a tough matchup against the All-Star, DeRozan.
