Week 8 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Magic SG/SF Jonathon Simmons

4-game slate with on the road with the Hornets, home vs. Hawks, against the Nuggets at home, then a road tilt with the Hawks.  In the last 7 days, Simmons is averaging 15.3 PPG, 1.3 3PG, 3.3 RPG, and 36 MPG. Available in 77% of ESPN fantasy basketball leagues. Simmons is a short-term play that could pick up steam as season goes along.


Knicks SG Courtney Lee

Has scored in double figures in 7 straight games.  Really helps out fantasy teams from the FT line and with steals.  Stats could increase as usage goes up with Hardaway Jr on the shelf.  Available in 60% of ESPN fantasy basketball leagues.  4-games this week on the road with the Pacers, home with the Grizzlies, back on the road vs. Bulls, ending the week at home with the Hawks.    


Clippers PF Montrezl Harrell

This Clippers squad is sadly the most decimated team to injury so far this season.  Blake Griffin is out for possibly 2 months with an MCL Sprain.  Jamir Wilson and Harrell will try take up minutes at PF. Harrell’s skill set doesn’t mesh well with DeAndre Jordan.  The Clippers have a short 2 game week at home with the Wolves and Wizards.  Harrell is a daily play for owners looking for defense stats.  Long term possible stash if DeAndre Jordan gets moved. Jordan has now hired an agent so things could come together quickly.  Harrell is available in 98% of ESPN fantasy basketball leagues.
