Week 12 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Wizards SG/PG Tomas Satoransky

Last season, usage rate went up to 15.1 in February and 14.3 in March with John Wall out. New year now John Wall is out for the season with heel spurs. Satoransky will play with the ball in his hands more so than usual, but will still take a back seat to Bradley Beal and Otto Porter.  Owns a career 49% FG percentage and 40% 3-point percentage. Expectations should be tempered, however Satoransky is a worthy pickup in all leagues. 3-games this week.

Heat SF Justise Winslow

Chief Justise has taken over control of the offense with Goran Dragic out. Winslow is contributing across the board.  Has scored in double figures in 4 straight games, 5 or more assists in 3 out of his last 5 games and 6 or more rebounds in 4 of last 5.  Will kill your free throw percentage, but worth picking up immediately. 3-games this week.

Knicks C Luke Kornet

2-games this week, but still should be able to contribute. Streamers looking for 3-point shooting from the C spot should pick up Kornet. Has drilled 14 from downtown in his last 3 games.  Because Kornet is a liability defensively and the Knicks ever changing rotations, be prepared for playing time to drop off without notice. I wouldn’t feel comfortable using Kornet in a weekly locking lineup.  Daily streamer at this point.

Week 11 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust


Nets SF Rodions Kurucs

Blocks in 4 straight games. Shooting 90% from the charity stripe and 50% from the floor. Seeing more minutes with Allen Crabbe has missed 6 consecutive games, but may be back soon. Kurucs is worth a streamer this week until Crabbe returns. 3-games this week.

Heat SG Tyler Johnson

Should have the ball in his hands more with Goran Dragic out with a knee injury.  Johnson will help owners with 3 pointers/scoring, but may hurt your free throw percentage.  Worth running out in lineups for this 3-game week.

Suns SF/SG Mikal Bridges

A steal in 6 straight games. Bridges saw 32.6 MPG in the month of December.  With that high of run, Bridges could be in line to put up more numbers and improve his percentages. A 3 and D wing with upside. 3-games this week.

Week 16 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

Bucs allow a league worst 111.1 opponents passer rating. Good Dak returns in Championship Week.

Packers RB Jamal Williams

Worth a PPR play vs. the Jets due to high snap count.  

Jets WR Robby Anderson

75 or more yards and a TD in back to back games. Has made a connection with Sam Darnold and is worth a flex play.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper

Scored a pair of TD vs. the Panthers in Week 2.  Carolina has allowed 9 TD to opposing TE.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri

Giants allow the 2nd most fantasy points on average to opposing kickers

Browns Defense

Home vs. the injury riddled Bengals. Browns force turnovers from Jeff Driskel.

IDP

Lions MLB Jarrad Davis

8 or more total tackles in back to back games. Tackle opportunities a plenty vs. all the short crossing routes run by Vikings.

Week 10 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Knicks PG Emmanuel Mudiay

Making most of Trey Burke’s injury.  Knicks have 3 games this week. Averaging 12.9 PPG so far and is coming off a career-high 34 point performance. Worth streaming to see if Mudiay can carve out a more significant role in David Fizdale’s ever changing rotation.

Celtics C Robert Williams

Owners looking for shot blocking should stream Williams. 2 or more blocks in 3 straight games. Al Horford is out for the near future with knee soreness. Williams should be able to play minutes in the teens if he can stay out of foul trouble. Dynasty owners may want to stash Williams if they have a roster spot.

Spurs PF/C Jakob Poeltl

6 or more boards in his last 6 games. Poeltl was in the return package for Kawhi Leonard. Poeltl can also help with FG% and Blocks. Shooting 64% from the floor. With more minutes the 0.8 BPG will go up.  Has 4-games this week. I wouldn’t be concerned with Poeltl losing a majority of his minutes when Pau Gasol returns.

Week 15 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Bills QB Josh Allen

Rushed for 99 or more yards in 3 straight games.  Ignore the 5 TD and 9 INT seasonal stat line. Lions have allowed a 105.6 Opponents passer rating. Allen is a streamer for owners that lost Carson Wentz.  

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette

Goes for 100 yards vs. the Redskins.  They’ve given up 85 or more yards to a single back in each of the last 4 games.  

49ers WR Dante Pettis

7 targets in each of the last 3 contests. 4 TD in last 3 games including 2 vs. Seahawks in Week 13.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph

Hasn’t scored a TD since Week 3.  Dolphins have allowed 3 Multi TD games to opposing TE this season.

Falcons K Matt Bryant

Cardinals defense should be just the slump buster Falcons offense needs. 

Jaguars Defense

Josh Johnson will start at QB for the Redskins. Rebound after getting embarrassed by Titans.

Rams Safety LaMarcus Joyner

6 or more total tackles in 5 straight games.

Week 9 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Cavaliers SG Alec Burks

6 or more rebounds in 5 of his last 6 games. Rebuilding Cavs have no reason not to see if Burks can catch lightning in a bottle in The Land.Will help in scoring and steals as well. 4-games this scoring period make Burks worth streaming.

Suns PG De’Anthony Melton

Tremendous physical gifts for this rookie PG. Melton has played 23 or more minutes in each of the last 3 games. With Devin Booker and TJ Warren for an unknown time Melton should see more run.  The full on tank mode Suns need to find out what Melton brings to the table. More value in a keeper league, but could be worth a stream for this 4-game week.

Hawks SG Kevin Huerter

Rookie sharp shooter could see a higher usage rate with Taurean Prince out with an injury.  Huerter has played 25 or more minutes and had 4 assists in 5 straight games.  Huerter could help streamers looking for 3-point shooting.  3-games this week, but still worthy of being in lineups.   

Week 14 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Colts QB Andrew Luck

Threw for 3 or more TD in 8 straight games before last week’s clunker. Don’t get cute, keep Luck in your lineup vs. the Texans.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Bengals have allowed 19 total TD to opposing RB. Jackson will dazzle with his play in your Flex.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr.

Broncos have been stingy vs. opposing RB, but Wilson Jr  is worth a PPR Flex

Bucs WR Chris Godwin

Shines vs. the Saints with D JAx out of the lineup.  

Bills WR Zay Jones  

Jets have allowed 4th most fantasy points to opposing WR. Torched Jets for 8-93-1 in Week 10.

Browns TE David Njoku

Panthers have given up 9 TD to opposing TE.

Saints TE Dan Arnold

TD dependant dart throw in a projected shootout with the Bucs.

Cowboys K Brett Maher

Should be busy vs. the Eagles

Bills Defense

3 sacks in each of the last 3 games and 5 INT in that span. Sam Darnold is a turnover machine.

Falcons LB Deion Jones

15 total tackles and a sack in his return last week. Busy vs. the Packers. Dtrue%3B%20s_omni_lid%3D%3B%20s_sq%3D%3B; s_vi=[CS]v1|2D6085778507AEA5-40000110800322C4[CE]

Week 8 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Jazz SF/PF  Jae Crowder

3-games this matchup. Crowder is a 3 and D player that streamers can use to fill in with daily categories leagues.  Averaging 2.5 made from downtown over the last 7 days.

 

Bulls PG Ryan Arcidiacono

3-games this scoring period. Kris Dunn should be cleared for contact soon, but in the meantime feel free to roll with Arcidiancono. Streamers looking to help with percentages can use his 79% from the charity stripe and 44% from downtown. Basketball IQ should keep him in the rotation.

 

Celtics C Aron Baynes

86% from the charity stripe will help owners looking to boost percentage. Baynes has just 2 games this matchup. But any chance to go against the Knicks and Bulls is well worth it.
