Worth the Investment

John Wall (WAS, G) - $8,200

Wall is on fire right now, posting six double-doubles in his last seven games. It would be seven consecutive, but he did not score enough. The Wizards star point guard is averaging a double-double for the season, something that only one other guard in the NBA is doing.

If that is not enough, Wall is also one of only five guards to average better than two steals per game. He does everything well, which often leads to a full stat sheet. The one knock on him is his high turnover rate, but that can generally be overlooked because of his contributions everywhere else.

Wall has been much better at home this year than on the road. He draws a home matchup with the Utah Jazz, who are one of the worst teams in the league at defending the point guard position. Wall should continue to dominate against Trey Burke and company on Sunday.

 

Tim Duncan (SAS, F) - $6,800

By Keith Allison from Owings Mills, USA (Tim Duncan) [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsDuncan has been on a roll lately, posting five consecutive double-doubles. One of those was even a triple-double. He puts up excellent numbers across the board, which makes him a prime target in daily leagues.

A matchup against the Nuggets weak frontcourt defense should allow Duncan to dominate. Kawhi Leonard has missed the last two games, and is listed as questionable to play Sunday. Duncan receives an even bigger boost in value if Leonard is forced to sit again.

The thing with Duncan is you always have to double check to make sure he is in the lineup. He has already recorded two DNPs this month due to rest. However, both of those came on the second night of a back-to-back. The Spurs were off Saturday, so Duncan should be good to go.

 

Chris Bosh (MIA, C) - $8,100

The center position is really thin on Sunday, making Bosh a near must-play. He is Mr. Consistency, scoring 20 or more points in 10 of his last 12 games. You may be noticing a trend here; guys that offer across-the-board production are some of the best players to target in daily leagues. This is because they are not solely reliant on scoring. They can still hit value when their shot is not falling, and provide a huge upside when it is. Bosh is certainly one of those guys.

Bosh is really enjoying life without LeBron James this season. He is averaging career-highs in three-pointers with 1.5 a game, and steals at 1.1 a game. His matchup against Chicago is decent on paper, but gets even more enticing is Joakim Noah remains out. Either way, get Bosh in your lineup on Sunday.

 

Top Sleeper

Zach LaVine (MIN, G) - $2,400

LaVine has been up and down all season, which is to be expected from a rookie that has been thrust into playing time before he is ready. However, LaVine has shown the ability to put up a huge line from time to time when the matchup is right. Well, the matchup does not get any better than Sunday, when LaVine goes up against the swiss cheese Los Angeles Lakers defense. The Lakers allow the most fantasy points to opposing point guards of any team in the NBA.

LaVine is the only healthy point guard on the Timberwolves roster right now. Until Ricky Rubio and/or Mo Williams get back, LaVine will continue to log heavy minutes. At his current price, he will crush his value threshold, and also allow you to pay up for a few studs in your lineup. Do not sleep on LaVine on Sunday.
