Hi, today is April Fool’s. Which means fantasy sports writers are covered everywhere for just this one day. If the picks turn out to be worse than Enes Kanter’s defensive efforts, then hey Aprils Fools! If they turn out to be great? Well that’s expected. Anyways, how about we just shoot for greatness and hope I don’t have to make up a lame April 1st joke for next year okay? Okay.

Guards:

Reggie Jackson – $8,600

Well, what an absolute ride for Jackson since his time in Detroit. His most recent accomplishment was gutting out a stomach bug for 22 minutes and still dropping a double-double. Jackson has posted 9+ assists in 10 out of his past 11 games and has 5 20+ point games during that same span. He shoots at a high clip, gets to the free throw line and rebounds at a plus for his position. I like him tonight if he plays.

Tyreke Evans – $7,900

His last time out was a poor showing but he only received 23 minutes of playing time due to the game getting out of hand. His last 2 games before that, he has posted 25/10 and 28/7. Tonight he goes against the Lakers which is a very favorable match up for him.

 

Forwards:

Tobias Harris – $6,400

Harris is looking good again coming off his ankle injury. He dropped 21 points on 50% shooting his last game and with a long break between games he should be feeling even better now. He should be back to his normal production.

Chase Budinger – $5,100

Another day, another healthy player from Minnesota cashing in. With still numerous injuries on the roster, players are having to step up production wise. He’s a relatively cheap play tonight who is good for 30+ minutes and plenty of offensive opportunities.

 

Center:

Tyler Zeller – $4,700

If you’re looking for a cheap play here tonight, I recommend Zeller. His last time out against the Pacers he posted 18 points and 7 rebounds on 8-of-10 shooting. Since then he’s maintained that level of play despite shaky minutes. He gets the Pacers again tonight and will be looking for similar production.
