This week really favors those owners who have a heavy amount of Golden State Warriors on their team. Normally we break down the upcoming week’s schedule below, but this week is a special exception. It is just that good for the Warriors. Their four-game schedule features some of the worst team scoring defenses in the NBA: Toronto (99.7 ppg), Cleveland (100.5 ppg), Dallas (103.2 ppg) and Phoenix (99.4 ppg). It should be a week chock full of solid stat lines for the likes of Fantasy must-starts like PG Stephen Curry, PF/C David Lee, and swingman Klay Thompson, as well as borderliners such as G Jarrett Jack, F Carl Landry and even rookie Harrison Barnes. C Festus Ezeli might also warrant using in deeper leagues, as his rebounding totals might surprise. Remember each of the players above during the week, too, if you play in daily formats such as DraftKings.com.
BIG WEEK FOR THE WARRIORS
The National Basketball Association essentially has a six-day week coming up, as even the most powerful basketball league in the world isn’t foolish enough to go up against Super Bowl Sunday for television ratings. So, the last tip on Sunday’s light three-game slate of games is 2:00pm ET, giving plenty of teams rest. In fact, only 11 of The Association’s 30 teams have four games in the upcoming scoring period, so Fantasy owners in cumulative leagues will really have their work cut out for them.
