See our fantasy tips for Thursday, the 21st of December below.
PG – Isaiah Canaan (PHX)
Isaiah Canaan is the Suns latest recruit and has impressed in his 2 games so far. Signed from free agency to fill the void at the Point Guard spot, Canaan hasn’t missed a beat, averaging 32.5 points from 26.5 minutes. He is still at basement price in Moneyball ($3,700) and Draftstars ($8,050) and is a great cheap option.
SG – Garrett Temple (SAC)
Garrett Temple is another basement priced player who offers a lot of scoring Potential. He is valued at $3,500 in Moneyball and $5,850 in Draftstars and should play around 30 minutes with George Hill out injured. If you’re looking to save money at the 2-guard spot, then Temple is your man.
SF – Mario Hezonja (ORL)
Hezonja has benefitted from being injected into the Magic starting line-up in the absence of Evan Fournier. He is getting decent game-time and has averaged over 30 fantasy points in his past 3 games. Hezonja is priced at $4,000 in Moneyball and $8,450 in Draftstars and has high scoring potential.
PF – Kyle Kuzma (LAL)
There aren’t any standout cheap players at the Power Forward position tomorrow. However, Kuzma is a player who is still under-priced ($5,400 Moneyball, $11,650 Draftstars) and has potential to score big against the Rockets. He will be involved in a high-scoring game against weak wing defenders. We’re expecting Kuzma to score above his average tomorrow.
C – Alex Len (PHX)
Rounding out our value team at the Centre position is Alex Len. Although we usually try to avoid the Suns big-men, Len is an exception tomorrow. He has been in outstanding form lately and is averaging 40.1 fantasy points in his last 3 games. Len should be given the majority of the minutes available at the 5-spot tomorrow and is under-priced at $5,400 in Moneyball and $11,300 in Draftstars.
