Who To Own

Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Beal had a 34-7-5-2 line in a loss against the Chicago Bulls and he may have to do more with John Wall on the sideline with a bone bruise issue. In the last two games that Wall is out, Beal is averaging 37 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists.

John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks

Collins is a walking double-double, accounting for 10 double-doubles in his last 11 games. If one is that automatic, you have to have to him at all costs.

Thomas Bryant, C, Atlanta Hawks

A punt play with a lot of upside, Bryant had another nice game in a loss to Chicago with 12 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks. Ian Mahinmi comes in once in a while to steal his playing time but Bryant is the clear starter in that rotation.

Who To Avoid

Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets

Phoenix is playing well lately with three wins in the last four but they are just not at Denver’s level. This could very well turn into a blowout with Denver’s starter possibly sitting for a lot of minutes.

Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Dame’s game winner masked two poor games in a row (at least in his standards) and now they will be up against a more motivated Warriors team. I feel I won’t be needing or missing Lillard’s production this Saturday night.
