Best collection of names so far this season on The Circle Of Trust.
Lakers C Ivica Zubac
Scored in double figures in back-to-back games. Brook Lopez should start to see fewer minutes as Zubac’s playing time goes up. Zubac has a 3-game slate this week on the road vs. the Hawks, Heat, and Spurs. Daily play right now that could develop dynasty league appeal in short order. I recommend picking up Zubac and seeing what happens. Owned in just 1.7% of ESPN fantasy leagues.
Pelicans C Emeka Okafor
Great story coming back after years out of the NBA. Deserves a lot of credit. Owned in 0.6% of ESPN fantasy leagues. Has 12 blocks combined in his last 4 games. Seeing over 14 MPG in that span. The Pelicans are starting Okafor as a defender next to Anthony Davis. Daily players looking for blocks and boards may want to use Okafor. 3 games this matchup home with the Suns, on the road vs. the Spurs and Mavericks.
Wolves SF Nemanja Bjelica
Playing time should go up with Jimmy Butler’s knee injury. Short term scorer for fantasy owners while Butler is out. Shooting 85% from the free throw line and 44% from downtown. On the road for 3 games this week with the Kings, Blazers, and Jazz.
