Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin
James Harden continued to be passive on Sunday and finished with just 11 points (4-of-12 FGs), four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Grizzlies.
The Clippers are now 0-4 since acquiring Harden. Tyronn Lue said after the game that Harden has been “too polite” and needs to be more aggressive. Harden’s 12 shot attempts in this game were the most that he’s taken this season. He hasn’t been very effective, but if he starts being more aggressive, the production should come along with it. We’ll see if that helps them get in the win column.
Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Michael Porter Jr. recorded a line of 25 points (11-of-19 FGs), 10 rebounds, one block, and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes in Sunday’s 1070104 loss to the Rockets. After finishing last season ranked just outside the top 75 in 9-cat per-game value, many fantasy managers expected similar production from MPJ based on his Yahoo ADP (81).
To his credit, Porter has exceeded those expectations, providing solid 4th-round value in 9-cat formats. And the rebounding production is a big reason why. After averaging 5.5 rebounds per game last season, he’s boosted that number to a career-high 8.2 while also rejecting nearly one shot. Since the Nuggets lost Jamal Murray to a hamstring injury, Porter’s scored 17 points or more in five straight games, tallying at least 22 in four. Fantasy managers should hold onto MPJ, because his production to begin the season is sustainable.
