The All Star break is behind us and, to be honest, the dunk contest has disappointed this season and, as I mentioned last week, it's my favorite part of the season. 39; event. On the bright side, the free time has given me a little more time to refine my grilling skills and spend time with my family. After all, these are two of my favorite things to do. I'll add that during this NBA break, I've already made one of my best steaks.

As usual, I will dig in the coming week and review some player predictions.

"Data-reactid =" 22 "> The Pelicans announced It seems that they are trying to avoid any serious injury to Davis and are also preparing for life without him, because he said he would not sign anymore with the team once his position runs out, contract expires.

This should open opportunities for other members of this team, and so far, Diallo has taken advantage of this situation. Diallo doubled his double and played no less than 19 minutes in the last two games. Up until February, he scored at least 12 points and no fewer than eight rebounds per game, whether he played 19 minutes or more.

Diallo is not Davis and there will be frustrating evenings for the young man, but the opportunity should remain for him until the end of the course. The Pelicans play four times this week and make two very good showdowns for Diallo against the Lakers and Suns, who each earn more than 55 fantasy points per game per game, as well as more than 24 points and 17 rebounds per game. .

Diallo belongs to only 11% of Yahoo leagues, so it is very likely that it is still available in yours. You can also consider him a good value DFS player as long as his price remains cheap.

"Data-reactid =" 27 "> With Kevin Huerter on the set with an ankle injury, Bazemore went into the starting lineup and played more than 30 minutes in each of the two matches after the break from the stars. When Bazemore got minutes, he's been pretty solid in recent years and so far, this has been the case for each of the last two contests.

During this period, he averaged 33.5 minutes, 17.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 0.6 assists and 0.5 blocks per game.

Recognized for his defense, Bazemore is an excellent source of flights, in addition to its offensive production. It can hurt you as a percentage of the field goal some nights and is not huge in aids, but will contribute in just about every other category.

The Hawks play four times this week and the four competitions go against defenses that rank 20th or worse on defense, making it a good week to connect Bazemore in your lineups. As long as Huerter remains absent, Bazemore should continue to consult the minutes.

It's as hot as my cup of coffee at the time I write the article, and it will eventually cool, just like Bazemore, but for now, it should be in most formats. It remains available in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues.

<h4 class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "Delon Wright PG / SG, Memphis Grizzlies"data-reactid =" 37 "> Delon Wright PG / SG, Memphis Grizzlies

Wright sees more minutes for the Grizzlies in recent games, averaging 28.2 minutes per game over the past five games. During that period, he averaged 8.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.0 volley and 0.6 blocks per game.

It's far from consistent and does not take full advantage of playing time, but the fact that it's on the pitch makes it an attractive choice in the deeper leagues. This week, the Grizzlies play four times. They face the Lakers, Bulls, Mavericks and Thunder. Of the four teams, two are in the top four and one team ranks 24th in the defense rankings.

For those looking for a filet mignon at the guardhouse, Wright is not your type, but if you agree with a well-cooked sirloin steak, he can do it any night. Given this week's program and his report, it would not be surprising to see him perform. It's available in over 90% of Yahoo leagues.

Beasley continues to play an important role for the Nuggets and, for some reason, is still available in 50% of Yahoo leagues. Since January 1st, he has accumulated an average of 29.3 minutes, 16.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.7 volley and 0.1 block per game.

Of course, Gary Harris and Isaiah Thomas are back, making it a cluttered backyard, but until now, it does not appear that their comeback has a big impact on Beasley. Not to mention that he's playing too well to see a major reduction in playing time.

The Nuggets play three times this week, with two competitions against slower teams and one against 23 for the defense. As long as Beasley will continue to read the minutes and produce as he has done, he should be on fantasy lists in most formats.

Dwight Powell PF / C Dallas Mavericks

Powell begins to take an offensive pace, scoring double-digit points in each of his last seven games. During that period, he averaged 26.1 minutes, 12.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.3 blocks, while shooting 50.9%.

His lack of defense really limits his cap, but he remains the most attractive tall man on the field before the Mavericks. Dallas plays three games this week against the Grizzlies, Clippers and Pacers. The Grizzlies and Pacers are not walks in the park, but the Clippers allow the greatest number of fantasy points per game to the big opponents, with 26 points and 16.9 rebounds.

It is unlikely that Powell illuminates the dashboard on a given night, but it is a good source of points, rebounds and percentage of goal. It remains available in more than 80% of Yahoo leagues.

Davis once again falls into the category of busts and will likely be considered a potential bust in the coming weeks after the team announced that it would limit its minutes the rest of the season. In addition to the restricted minutes, it is likely that Davis will not play the second consecutive night.

It's really a shame for the owners of Davis because he is one of the best fantasy players in the league when he is in full health and on the pitch. As I said in the last article, I talked about Davis. When I'm active, I do not block it, even with limited minutes, because as we saw Friday against the Pacers, he scored 15 points with eight panels, four dimes, a block and a flight in just 20 minutes .

What I'm going to say is that fantasy owners have to temper Davis' expectations and understand that because of the limited number of minutes, the ceiling is capped. This week pelicans play four times and fight back to back. It is therefore likely that you will get three Davis games this week.

Jrue Holiday PG, New Orleans Pelicans

Davis is not the only player that the Pelicans intend to cut the minutes for the rest of the way, as they announced that Holiday would see its minutes be limited the rest of the year. Since the announcement, Holiday has played 25 and 33 minutes and it has always produced solid numbers.

Given its production by the minute, it is difficult to see a situation in which Holiday becomes a player on which we can not count. That said, the nights when his minutes are shortened, his cap is capped and the numbers we usually see will probably not be there.

This week, the pelicans play four times and make interesting encounters. Therefore, a vacation on the bench is not really an option. However, I temper my expectations because of the minute limit.

Jamaal Murray PG, Denver Nuggets

Murray has had some ups and downs since returning from a six-game absence. He started with two good performances, but has calmed down in his last three games. The Nuggets play three times this week – two games against defenses ranked among the top four in the defense standings.

While Murray still produces enough to guarantee a start on most fantastic teams, this week could be disappointing given his opponents. He will always get you flights and helpers, but his score could be a little lower.

Most fantasy owners can not afford to sit down, and that's understandable, but temper expectations this week As for the bright things, he wins a good game against the Pelicans, the one of the worst defenses in the league and a great one-on-one match for Murray. It's a game where he can play on the ceiling, so put him permanently in your lineup that day and you might even want to consider him in a DFS tournament that night as well, as long as the prize is correct.
