Sell High

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon was feeling it on Wednesday, leading the Magic to a 116-112 OT win over the Pistons with 25 points (8-of-15 FG, 5-of-5 FT) and a full line.

    AG did it all, adding nine rebounds, nine assists, three treys one steal and one block to round out his line for the night. This near-triple-double was one of AG's best lines in quite a while, so he can be a sell-high play.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic came off the bench and chipped in 24 points (7-of-12 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), three rebounds, six assists, four 3s and one steal in 26 minutes on Monday.

    Dragic has been hot lately, posting top-50 value over the last week. He's a sell-high candidate and could be shipped off by the Heat on or before the trade deadline. He outplayed starter Kendrick Nunn, who's still recovering form a sore Achilles. Nunn put up nine points, three rebounds, three assists, one trey and one stal in 24 minutes.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III put up a team-high 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting on Saturday to pace the Warriors to a win over the Cavs, chipping in one rebound, three 3s, one assist, three steals and one block in 26 minutes.

    GR3 may have gotten a showcase-game from the Dubs, who are reportedly open to parting with him. He's a sell-high guy as he won't be this much of an impact-player in fantasy on another team.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green compiled three points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and a 3-pointer in just 23 minutes on Sunday.

    The Warriors lost to Memphis by 20 but Green had a really nice fantasy game. We'd advise you to try and deal Green for any kind of top-100 player right now, as it would take a huge rebound in the standings in order for the Warriors to push their do-it-all forward to play meaningful minutes in what's become a lost season.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela scored 13 points with nine boards, a block and a steal, hitting 6-of-7 shots but only converting 1-of-3 free throws on Monday against the Spurs.

    Capela has been struggling from the line, shooting under 50 percent over his last seven games while seeing fewer blocks and points over that same stretch. The Rockets are winning lots of games so Capela might continue to slump as we head into the home stretch as the Rockets are blowing out the competition on most nights.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen led all the Bulls on Monday against the Celtics with 30 minutes played despite a lopsided 105-89 loss where he scored 12 points with four boards, two triples, an assist, block and steal.

    Markkanen will have every opportunity to produce as the Bulls wind the year down but he could find himself hitting a rookie wall. Over the last month his assists, points, field goal percentage and triples have seen a noticeable dip despite an increase in playing time over that span. This could also be due to the arrival of Zach LaVine and Robin Lopez’s moving out of the rotation.  

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap started and scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, one assist, five steals and one block over 27 minutes in Friday’s road win over the Grizzlies.

    Millsap should be locked and loaded into lineups the rest of the way and though he was disappointing earlier in the year, he still has easy top-50 potential and could climb a round or two higher than that.  Wilson Chandler (four points, one block, 31 minutes) can be dropped in standard leagues and guys like Will Barton (24 points) and Gary Harris (26 points) will eventually take a small hit.  Jamal Murray might have shown the future with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, two boards, four assists, three steals and a trey, which is a quality line but it’s not inconceivable to see him fall out of mid-round value.  The Nuggets may take a little bit here to find their rhythm.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds and two assists in Friday’s loss to the Rockets.

    Wiggins was a sell-high candidate with the Wolves having fewer games left than the entire league and also because his name is generally bigger than his fantasy game.  The latter still probably holds true, but for however long Jimmy Butler (knee) is out he will be at the top of the list to absorb usage.  The same goes for Jeff Teague (18 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals) and Karl-Anthony Towns (18 points, 13 boards, three assists, one block, one trey).

  • Bulls to play young guys more after the break

    Connected Bulls beat guy K.C. Johnson opined that the Bulls want to see how their younger players perform before next season.

    Johnson specifically mentioned Cristiano Felicio and Cam Payne by name, which means less time for Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday. If you own either of them, this is definitely the time to sell-high, though you’ll probably have trouble getting any interest. Lopez is already a drop candidate in standard sized leagues, while Holiday, who should be able to hold on to low-end value, won’t sustain the top-90 value you’ve gotten so far this season.

  • Jeff Teague stays hot with 20-point performance in win

    Jeff Teague played well for the Timberwolves on Thursday night, posting 20 points, three boards, six dimes, two treys and a block.

    This is his second straight game where he’s scored 20 points or more. Don’t look now but Teague appears to be heating up. He’s comfortably been filling the void left by the currently struggling Andrew Wiggins. Teague won’t likely be able to keep up this hot scoring streak for much longer, so you can consider this as a brief sell-high window. 

  • Taj Gibson bullies Lakers with 28 points

    Taj Gibson led the Timberwolves to a 119-111 victory over the Lakers on Thursday with 28 points, seven rebounds, a steal and two blocks.

    Gibson was the unlikely top scorer for his team in this one thanks to the aggressiveness he displayed in the paint. He shot 11-of-16 from the field and was a perfect 6-of-6 from the line. The scoring and defensive numbers have been lackluster in the two games prior to this one, so this might be a good time to sell Gibson. His bloated value is boosted by the matchup and will not likely be repeated any time soon.

  • Danilo Gallinari scores 22 in Clippers loss

    Danilo Gallinari made 7-of-15 from the floor and 5-of-6 from the line on Saturday for 22 points with five boards, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Gallo has really come on strong since his return from injury, scoring no less than 15 points in his five games back.  He’s also drained 13 from deep in that time and as long as he’s on the court will likely be the focal point of the offense for the Clips.  That’s, of course, a big if as he always seems to get injured, so owners may want to consider selling high. 

  • Lauri Markkanen (personal) returns to action on Friday

    Lauri Markkanen (personal) returned to action on Friday against the Wolves, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes.

    Markkanen took a back seat to the Jimmy Butler and Zach LaVine show and that might be a metaphor for the last third of his season.  The Bulls aren’t going to turn away from him by any means and Nikola Mirotic is gone, but between Lavine, Kris Dunn and Justin Holiday there are a few players that don’t mind taking shots.  If he can sneak in a good game before Dunn returns it could provide owners their last sell high chance. 

  • Trey Lyles posts 24-7-4 line in blowout loss to Rockets

    Trey Lyles scored 24 points on 8-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes off the bench in Friday’s loss to the Rockets.

    Lyles hit 1-of-5 triples and 7-of-7 freebies.  He has until mid-March when Paul Millsap returns to do his thing and that makes him a sell-high candidate. 

  • Danilo Gallinari continues to play well

    Danilo Gallinari scored 16 points (two 3s) with four boards, four assists and two steals in Friday’s road win over the Pistons.

    El Gallo’s been killing it since returning, putting up top-20 value in those four games. He’s an obvious sell-high player as he remains a constant injury risk.
