Welcome to another edition of the Value Index!
We return today with a 10-game slate to sift through. There are some injury concerns to monitor closely today, including Wizards PG John Wall, who sat out Sunday’s game. HIs status as of the publication of this write up is unknown. His backup, Tim Frazier, also has his status in question due to injury.
Keep that situation in mind as we get close to lock, but in the meantime, I hope today’s recommendations aide your research and profitability. Good luck!
Analysis: I have ridden the coattails of MItchell’s recent success the past couple of games. The dynamic rookie has been taking some minutes away from the other guards on this team, and he has posted great value lines in DFS the past couple of outings. The Jazz overall get a pace bump facing the 4th-ranked team in terms of pace of play. MItchell has had shot attempts of 20, 20 and 13 in his past 3 games and fantasy totals of 41, 38.25 and 29 in those outings, respectively. Mitchell can play either point or shooting guard in this offense, which are both positions the Sixers have given up gobs of fantasy points to this season (61.3 FPPG to PGs and 86.9 FPPG t0 SGs). Oh and MItchell currently LEADS his team in usage rate this season. At this price and that usage, give me all the Mitchell.
Analysis: Not to be confused with his brother, Boban (also on this slate), this Bogey has carved out a nice role with the Indiana Pacers this season, and his price has yet to see any kind of change. Bojan has flashed 30-point upside in 3 out of his last 5 games. In those 5 games, he’s played no less than 27 minutes and played 30 or more in 3 of those games. Facing the Pelicans, in a projected high-scoring, close affair, Bogey has another opportunity to smash value coming off a disappointing performance against the Knicks last time out.
