Fox has been an absolute monster, dropping more than 40 fantasy points in six consecutive games. The speedy point guard admitted he has been hounded by a minor shoulder issue but does not plan to miss any time. That means owners should continue to deploy him in their DFS lineups with no worries.

FVV has been struggling with his shot but with Kyle Lowry out, he’ll have every opportunity to perform. He has been averaging over 30 minutes of playing time in the last three and registered a solid 10-5-7 line in the win over Chicago.

The Bosnian beast has been unstoppable lately, dominating Golden State and then posting a nice line (14-7-3) in only 21 minutes vs Philly. A matchup with the high-octane Kings could be a very entertaining and fantasy-friendly one.

Some bargains to consider:

Avery Bradley, SG, Clippers— Has registered over 20 FP for the bare minimum over the past three games.

Al-Farouq Aminu, PF, Blazers— Averaging 10.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists over the past 4 outings.

Luke Kornet, C, Knicks— The Knicks reportedly prioritizing development is a positive for Kornet, who is seeing over 30 minutes and has averaged 18.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 5 assists in the past two games.
