Andre Drummond, C ($9,700)– The Pistons big man has been a revelation this season, improving by leaps and bounds in reality which translates into his fantasy value. Drummond averages 51.1 fantasy points at this juncture of the young season and Sunday night, he’ll be going up against an anemic Los Angeles Lakers defense which is fourth in the league at stopping opposing centers.
Rajon Rondo, PG ($8,500)– Sacramento Kings coach George Karl has been unleashing Rajon Rondo as of late, keeping his point guard on the floor for at least 44 minutes in the past four games. What has Rondo got to show for it? Three-triple doubles and one 35.0-fantasy point outing.

Al Jefferson, C ($5,900)- OK, let’s get down to the bottom line: Big Al is struggling– big time. He hasn’t had a very good fantasy outing in the past four. But then again, with all that talent and potential, along with a very modest salary, he is worthy of a flier.
DeMarre Carroll, SF ($5,600)- Carroll has missed a week because of plantar fasciitis but coach Dwayne Casey has no plans of using him sparingly. DC played 33 minutes in his first game back versus New Orleans, and while his production leaves a lot to be desired (22.25), the playing time is an encouraging sign. Toronto visits Sacramento, who is in the bottom half of the league when it comes to defending opposing small forwards.

Dion Waiters, SG ($4,400)- No KD for the OKC Thunder, so somebody has to get some of the opportunities among his teammates. Prime candidate is Waiters, who enjoyed back-to-back 30-FP games last week before flunking in the win over Philadelphia. Boston is the sixth-worst team versus shooting guards so Waiters might get his stroke back against the Celtics.
Trevor Booker, PF ($3,200)- Booker hasn’t really produced much off the bench for the Utah Jazz this season, but as Rudy Gobert nursing an ankle sprain, the undersized forward saw some extended run and got himself some solid numbers in the process. Last game at Orlando, Booker registered 25.25 FP (the 7 rebounds and 4 steals are particularly encouraging) and if the French center is still going to sit out, Booker is going to be a very solid but cheap DFS option.
