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!
Lonnie Walker IV (DK$3100 | FD$4300)
Many people have been burned by LW4 over the last week or so. There is risk for that to happen again tonight, but there are two pieces that make me believe that he should see a bit more of a run today against a bad Charlotte team. The first being the fact that he only played 20 minutes last night while the team is on a B2B. This makes me believe that he may get more of a run tonight. There’s also no denying that SAS is decimated with injuries and have been relying on veteran Rudy Gay more often. Again, given the B2B and the fact that Gay has played 56 minutes over the last two gives me confidence that Pop rolls with the young gun a bit more in this spot.
Monte Morris (DK$4500 | FD$4300)
Morris has been quietly putting up decent numbers over his last-10 games, and has been a key component to the Nuggets’ bench. In that stretch he’s averaging roughly 23FP a game, on an average of 26MPG. Tonight he gets a juicy match-up against the Warriors that should allow him to see an extended run in a potential blowout (Vegas has Denver as a 15.5 point favourite, the largest of the night). There looks to be some fantastic options at guard tonight, so rolling Morris would definitely provide you with some leverage on the field if he ends up putting up strong numbers.
Mychal Mulder (DK$3600 | FD4100)
Denver is a team that I rarely attack as they are in the top-10 defensively, but Golden State is so short on healthy bodies that it would be hard to pass up on Mulder here again. He has been a great addition to the Warriors on his 10-day call up from the G-League and has been great at allowing them to what the Warriors do best; stretch the floor. He has a blowout proof match-up, and should see 30-ish minutes again tonight. He’s another cheap piece of that GSW offense that we can use to build into our rosters with potentially low ownership. He has had some fairly easy matchup to start his NBA career, so the match-up against Denver will be a true testament to his capability at the professional level.
