Hello Playmakers and welcome back to The Sixth Man report where we look into the daily slate for value to ensure that our playmakers have the most flexibility with their lineup construction from a price standpoint. NBA is always changing, therefore we need to be on our toes more than ever in this day and age for the sport to be effective. Let’s keep grinding and see what’s available today!
Ky Bowman (DK$4800 | FD$4100)
Bowman makes my list tonight as a GPP target (even if Draymond is active) against a SAC team that ranks middle of the pack against guards. While Bowman wont be is not a heavy volume shooter, he very much makes up for it on the peripheral side. A Draymond Green-light as you would. One thing I would be relying on tonight would be his ability to get steals, which allows for quick fantasy points to be tallied. Most people will move off him in the event that Green returns, but I still think he’s going to see close to 30 minutes even if he returns and has the potential to easily be a great value play on both sites.
*just got word that Draymond is out, Bowman now should hold some additional ownership*
Harry Giles (DK$4400 | FD$4000)
I have always been a fan of Harry Giles, and its finally nice to see the SAC organization provide him with a decent minute limit. This is largely due to the fact that they are without Bagley and Holmes. Golden State is bad against big men, and have been a target spot for me all year, so its only fitting that Giles makes my lineup (and could be part of a game stack with Bowman). My only worry would be SAC playing a small ball rotation and limiting his minutes, but when you’re up against a bad defensive front-court you take the opportunity where it presents itself.
Malik Monk (DK$4900 | FD$5100)
This is a nice pace-up spot here for Monk who will be starting Holiday over the injured Oladipo. Monk stands out here because it appears that he has been given the green light to shoot the ball and he is getting a good compliment of minutes as well. Over his last 3 games he has 48FGA and he’s averaging 30MPG. Positionally Indiana is fairly strong against guards, but theres potential for him to do some damage with the bench. Added bonus that if Rozier or Graham have an off night the offence will be left for Monk as Charlotte looks to develop their third year pro.
