Here is a team you may consider for the NBA $5K+ Tuesday competition

Point Guard

Kyle Lowry ($15,500)

The Toronto Raptors all-star Point Guard is slowly finding his groove after a poor start to the season by his standards and a home matchup against the 76ers could see him explode. He is averaging a tick under 40 fantasy despite a “bad” start meaning that he is ready to break out and get his season going.

Stephen Curry ($17,800)

The MVP of the past two years is still doing Steph Curry things and a matchup against Atlanta is another game where he can show us his brilliance. With Draymond Green out, his rebound and assist numbers should improve slightly and if he gets on a tear from behind the arc, then a massive fantasy game is a real possibility.

Shooting Guard

Bradley Beal ($11,650)

Bradley Beal has erupted in recent games and maybe his relationship with John Wall is finally starting to turn the corner. The Wizards want to play an up-tempo game and they will get a willing partner in the Sacramento Kings. This game will be up and down the court and result in plenty of shots for Beal.

Jerryd Bayless ($7,600)

Whilst he is not the most exciting pick, Bayless is a key part of the lineup for the consistency that he will bring. As the starting PG for the 76ers, he gets plenty of opportunities to initiate the offense and score points himself. If he scores 25 fantasy points then he has done his job for you.

Small Forward

Jae Crowder ($10,200)

Boston’s do-it-all man, Crowder is looking more settled having returned recently from an ankle injury and is starting to rediscover his shooting stroke. With Boston having rebounding issues, Crowder will be expected to crash the boards as well and when you add in his defensive stats he is a handy asset for your lineup.

Dion Waiters ($8,600)

Dion Waiters is known as being a Vine sensation, but this year he is proving that he can actually play basketball a bit as well. He had the best game of his career against Memphis and he will look to continue that against the Celtics. With the Heat decimated by injuries, he is going to get his chances to shoot the ball and even be the playmaker as well. *NOTE: Waiters is a game-day decision with a groin injury. Ensure he plays before selecting him.

Power Forward

Ersan Ilyasova ($7,750)

A pure situational play. It has already been flagged that Joel Embiid will not be playing against Toronto and this means that Ilyasova is a must-have. There will be more chances for him to score and a double digit rebound game should be expected from him. If his three-point radar is on then his score could be massive.

Frank Kaminsky ($7,400

Frank the Tank is slowly earning his coach’s trust and his minutes are steadily increasing every night. With starter Marvin Williams out, Kaminsky will step into the starter’s role that should see him play about 35 minutes. With his three-point range and his ability to hit the boards, he is an absolute steal at the price.


Kristaps Porzingis ($13,450)

Porzingis is one of the hottest players in the NBA right now and he gets a matchup against an OKC team that has been fairly average on defence thus far. With Joakim Noah struggling, Porzingis is getting more time at Centre which has seen an increase in his rebounding numbers and making him a double-double threat. In only his second season, it is unfathomable to think just how good he can be.
