FANTASY BASKETBALL: The BEAST in the Covington (Robert Covington)
The BEAST in the Covington
BEAST DOME NATION.
During your Fantasy NBA Draft this season, or if you plan on playing strictly Daily Fantasy NBA this season. It is important to find value, a player that plays like a 1st Round pick who you can get in the 10th round. That player is the starting SF for the 76ers, Robert Covington.
When you watch Rob play you will right away think, the next Rudy Gay. All he does his stroke the ball everytime he catches it, and with a team that really lacks a true triple threat scorer, someone who can launch from 3PT range/slash/or hit the mid-range, Big Shot Rob will have to carry this 76ers team more often than not. While the offense is always there for Convington, the stat that separates him from the bunch is his ability to rack up steals. There will be multiple times this season where Covington records 3+ Steals a game, and when you add 20+ Points and 5+ Boards, you have yourself a Fantasy Stud. Especially when he knocks down 4 3PT shots that night. While all those stats are nice, when he adds a couple of Blocks to those numbers, you will fall in love.
A lot of people are afraid to draft any 76ers due to the fact that the team is horrible and it feels like they go with Hockey Line Changes subbing out an entire group at a time. While there is always that danger, Covington will always be able to find plenty of time on the court this season as the team has no problem having him run at PF this season, and even SG if the lineup calls for it. The season is a long one in Fantasy NBA, and with an ADP of #103, Robert Covington is a MUST-DRAFT this season. He is only getting better, and he turns 25 in December.
