BUST OF THE NIGHT
LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE (PF/C) – SAS
DRAFTKINGS SALARY: $7000
I love LaMarcus when he was with Portland. All day him and Damian Lillard ran that pick and roll like they were Stockton and Malone. Instead of the Pick and Roll, Aldridge definitely preferred the Pick and Pop. The 7 Footer can hit that midrange jump shot.
Playing with the Spurs for 1+ Years. We do not see the offense running through Aldridge at all. There is no one guy that always touches the ball in this offense, and the system is now running deep into the bench. Dwayne Dedmon is playing too good of defense to ignore. David Lee is showing flashes of the dynamic playmaker he was in the past.
On top of it all, Pau Gasol comes into town and is taking away too many touches. Not only is Pau taking away too many touches, he is taking away too many rebounds. With Aldridge going up against Utah, there are too many big bodies fight for rebounds. Gobert/Gasol/Favors, even Kawhi loves to slash in and steal all the rebounds he can get. There is not enough rebounds to go around for Aldridge, and there are certainly not enough shot attempts.
The only way LaMarcus has a good fantasy night is if he has a perfect real life night. Derrick Favors will not make it easy on Aldridge at all, this is a matchup to avoid. Without the 10+ Rebounds, he is just a Shooting Guard playing Power Forward.
