High Tier Pick ($8,500 – $7,000)

Gordon Hayward – $7600 – 36.19 Points

Gordon Hayward stands in as the number one High tier option with a 34.24 fantasy average each night. The Jazz will be facing the Pacers on the road this evening. Indiana has been average against the position as they rank 16th versus opposing small forwards. Hayward makes a return to his hometown at a convenient time with his alma mater Butler advancing to the Sweet Sixteen at the same time. The All-Star forward has made major strides with his game this year as a more consistent scorer and improved rebounder. The Pacers have seen Paul George drop in overall efficiency as a defender, leaving Hayward as the position favorite on a night with limited options.

Middle Tier ($7,000 – $5,000)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – $5100 – 24.416 Points

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist plays as one of the top value options with an average of 23.19 fantasy points per night. The Hornets will take on the Hawks at home this evening. Atlanta has been sliding against opposing small forwards with the 25th ranking defense in the league. Kidd-Gilchrist is a frustrating play for Daily owners given that he provides more on-court value than the box score would suggest. He still offers potential for double-doubles as an interior threat, but that is typically his ceiling. Atlanta continues to struggle against the position though, allowing Kidd-Gilchrist to play as a more valuable name from the Middle Tier.

Low Tier ( -$5,000)

Bojan Bogdanovic – $3900 – 20.705 Points

Bojan Bogdanovic is one of the better Low tier options available this evening with a 20.07 fantasy average this year. Washington faces Boston at TD Garden tonight. The Celtics offer a favorable matchup as they rank 20th against opposing small forwards. Wizards fans have been extremely happy with Bogdanovic’s production since joining the team at the trade deadline. He offers high scoring upside as a perimeter scorer for the second unit. The team has seen him come through late in games when necessary as well with timely threes. Boston has been surprisingly poor against the position, creating greater value for Bogdanovic this evening.
