Philadelphia 76ers Fantasy Spin
Tobias Harris struggled with his shot on Saturday, making just 6-of-17 attempts for 13 points to go with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against Atlanta. Harris has struggled around the rim the last few games, missing some shots he normally makes. He's been productive with the 76ers, but you can still see him trying to figure out of he fits into the offense from time to time, which is to be expected. He only has three games next week, which hurts, but Harris is still a very good option.
Orlando Magic Fantasy Spin
Evan Fournier scored 27 points with eight rebounds, six assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday. It worked out better this time against Memphis after his goose egg against them on Mar. 10. Since then, his scoring has increased in every game with his minutes consistently being around 30. Fournier's been better in the past couple months compared to his slow start, but he's still be a bit of a letdown. The Magic are off for the rest of the week, so Fournier isn't exactly a must-hold player for owners absolutely needing games on Saturday or Sunday.

They’re also 12-3-1 against the spread in their last 16 games versus the Atlantic. On the other side, the Sixers are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a losing record and have failed to cover in all four of their previous four games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
