Here are some of the top sleepers and bargains for tonight’s DraftDay fantasy games. Also I would like to apologize for my very boneheaded error that I made putting Kyrie Irving on the list when he was hurt. I promise none of these players are hurt or at least nothing has been said as of 1 PM Central time. Without further ado, here is my bargains for the night.
PG: Delonte West, Dallas
Delonte West has been red hot as of late averaging well over twenty fantasy points a game and over sixteen points per game. He has been getting a couple steals and rebounds in those games too and those could rise especially if the Bulls put a focus on him, which I kind of doubt. Bulls are a tough defensive team, so this could be the night he cools off. However, I advise playing him until he does cool down.
SG: Rip Hamilton, Chicago
He had a rough outing against the Miami Heat, but is still trying to get back from his injuries that have been nagging him all year. Overall, he had a pretty good week this past week scoring over twenty points twice this week. With Rose still hurting look for Rip to carry some of his load tonight. I expect to see him score well and get a couple of steals, but Dallas is a tough team still looking to get a better seed in the playoffs, so Rip could have a tough night, but I think the focus will be on other players tonight.
SF: Chase Budinger, Houston
Has had a pretty good last five games and has a good chance to continue his success tonight. Now he has been pretty inconsistent this whole year, but I have a feeling that he will be in double digits in points tonight and should get five plus rebounds to go along with a couple of threes. The only concern I have about him is having a bad shooting night which is very possible.
PF: Jan Vesely, Washington
Jan has had a couple of twenty point fantasy games in his past five games mainly because he is pulling down a good chunk of rebounds. However, I caution people on this pick. He faces Miami tonight and that could equal a bad night for Jan. Also you rely on him to get you defensive stats rather than offensive stats, which is very scary. I think he will get a decent amount of boards tonight and he is very cheap. I recommend going other places, but if you want to add more superstars and want the cheapest option that will get you some points than Jan Vesely is your guy.
C: Drew Gooden, Milwaukee
Drew Gooden has put up some monster totals in his past five games score over thirty eight in two of the games albeit against the Wizards and Pistons. However, he plays the Nets tonight so he should have another good night against a team that doesn’t have a lot of quality bigs. Drew Gooden is not the most reliable player so his offense may be very average to below average due to his inconsistencies shooting, but I think he will get his share of rebounds and should get you at least twenty plus fantasy points tonight.
