Elfrid Payton was able to notch a fantasy-friendly line of 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists and a steal in the Magic’s ugly loss to the Heat on Tuesday.
Payton was 1-for-3 from the charity stripe, but did go 9-of-18 from the field and committed just two turnovers in 34 minutes. The Magic simply need Payton to be better, as he’s just barely a top-120 player in 8-cat. Things are worse in 9-cat, where his turnovers him floating around the cut line. He’s a solid buy low candidate at this point but he’ll be hard pressed to deliver on his ADP.
