Minutes Watch – Tuesday, March 15th
In the position charts below the MIN DIFF column represents the Difference in the Players’ last 5 Games
vs his Season Long Minutes per game average. This should give you a good idea of which players are
receiving more minutes than usual. With a little research, I’m sure you could find out why each player
has seen an uptick in minutes. Please note, this is the Average, over the Last 5 games, so, the numbers
could be a little misleading if said player received a massive amount of minutes for 1 game
(maybe because of injuries) , but then normal minutes in the other 4 games.
Before we get started with the slate breakdown, and some of our favorite plays tonight, you know I’ve got to give you a few links to hook up with us on Social Media, so, here you go
Marcelo Huertas: 2 Weeks ago, nobody knew who this guy was. Just some guy on the Lakers who was considered to be a barely above D-League Level Player. Well, fast forward 2 Weeks, and this guy is really producing for his cheap price tag. With respectable games between 15 and 28 fantasy points he is a solid value option tonight.
Jerry Bayless: Forced into the starting lineup, after Michael Carter Williams went down with an injury, Bayless has really stepped his game up. Now playing over 25 min per game he’s got some nice upside. A matchup with Kyle Lowry isn’t exciting, and his price is on the rise so I may look elsewhere tonight for PG Value
Khris Middleton: One of the hottest players in the league right now. Averging over 40 min per game in his last 5 Games, and, not surprisingly, seeing a huge uptick in Fantasy Points per game as well. His price has sored above $8,000 but, I think he’s worth it tonight.
Giannis Antetokounmpo: Is there anyone hotter in the NBA right now than the Greak Freak? 4 Triple Doubles in his last 11 games, and his price is now reaching the ELITE levels. Since MCW went down with an injury, Giannis has taken over the Point/Forward role for the Bucks, and boy has he delivered. Lock him in tonight, take your 40+ points to the bank and move on.
Bojan Bogdanovic: Solid value play at SF tonight, who’s been getting just over 30 min per game in his Last 5. He gets a juicy matchup vs the Sixers who don’t seem all that worried about racking up wins late in the Season.
Jabari Parker: Are you noticing a theme yet? I’ve been riding the Bucks for the past few weeks and they have rarely disappointted me. Middleton, Giannis and Parker have all seen an increase in Minutes and Production since MCW went down with an injury and tonight should be no different vs the Raptors. Lock in all 3 and look for value at other positions.
Carl Landry: Not a sexy pick, but with some injuries in the frontcourt for the Sixers he has seen a nice minutes bum recently. Tonight he gets a matchup vs the Nets Brook Lopez and Thad Young, so, his upside might be limited. At $4,400 however, you don’t need much from him to pay off his salary
Nikola Jokic: He followed up his monster 44 fantasy point game with a dud the other night. Tonight, he gets a matchup vs the Magic, who will be without Nic Vucevic. I look for Jokic to have a nice bounce back game, and he’s got a very affordable $6,300 price tag
