    We’re back at it for another Sunday slate, and this time there’s no true NFL games to compete with!

    With only two teams on the backend of B2Bs and one more on the front end, here’s to hoping we don’t get hit with those out of nowhere RKOs.

    The best news of all is that our eight-game Sunday is split up into two slates where the first slate may be finished by the time the second tips off. And what’s better than double the fun!

    Player Tiers

    Expensive Tier

    DeMar DeRozan ($9,600) – Currently Zach LaVine and Coby White are questionable for this one after the pair both missed Friday’s game. While the efficiency wasn’t great and DD scored a similar amount of fantasy points as in his previous games, he took a whopping 26 shots from the field along with a perfect 9-of-9 from the line. That type of volume is huge for someone who’s shooting over 50% from the field and averaging 5+ rebounds and assists as is. While he’s putting up 45+ points with a full lineup, the potential for another day of extreme volume day is tantalizing.

    Brandon Ingram ($8,700) – Ingram returned for the last two games after a multi-game absence and hasn’t missed a beat with over 93 combined fantasy points scored and wins in both games. Now enter one of the league’s most generous teams, and one Ingram scored 40 actual points on in his lone meeting against earlier this year. Everything is there for him to have a similar repeat performance, and Josh Hart is questionable for this one as well.

    Mid-Tier

    Kevin Porter Jr. ($5,700) – Porter Jr. Lasted only 11 minutes in his last game as he dealt with an illness. The good news is that he’s apparently over the illness as he isn’t listed on the game’s injury report as of right now. Before the last game, KPJ scored over 30 points in 6 of his last 7 games and was in a big groove, and now we can get him for only 5,700. He was $1,200 more before last game and has only been under 6k one other time since December.

    Terry Taylor – ($5,500) – Domantas Sabonis and Goga Bitadze are questionable for this one, and Cleveland’s frontcourt is massive, so Taylor has some big (literally and figuratively) obstacles in his way for this matchup. Even still, he should be a featured part of the rotation multiple positions with how he’s played. At 6’5″, he’s been playing center and has averaged 22.5 points and 15 rebounds in 37.5 minutes over his last two. If the two guys mentioned earlier miss, we can expect another start at C and a similar workload. If one of both plays, I’d still expect Taylor to get minutes all over the lineup with the injuries the Pacers have.

    Value

    Blake Griffin ($4,000) – Nic Claxton will not play, and I don’t fully expect Blake to draw the start in this one, as I think Nash gives it to Day’Ron Sharpe. With that said, going against Jokic, Sharpe should find himself in early foul trouble. Enter Griffin, who should be playing roughly 30 minutes in this one and contribute his usual across-the-board stats, albeit inefficiently. Add in that James Harden will be out once again, and Griffin suddenly becomes even more important on the offensive end.

    Frank Jackson ($3,600) – With Cade Cunningham questionable once again, there is nice upside in Jackson, who dropped 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting, including 5-of-11 from distance against this Wolves team just a few nights ago. If Cade plays, it puts a dent in his stock, but there is another opportunity for about 29 minutes and 15 shot attempts if they hold him out another game.
