PG - Trey Burke - Utah - Salary: $5,800
Burke has been a stat sheet stuffer recently and with Utah trying to tank they are giving their rookie PG more time in the lineup than he could have ever wanted coming into the season. Burke goes back to Michigan today where he played college ball at the highest level. Burke has to be upset with the Pistons for passing on him in the draft and that gives him extra incentive to play well today. Even when Burke has been missing his jumpers he has been compiling fantasy points with assists, steals, and rebounds. If Burke is hitting his shot he will put up some serious points against this Detroit defense. I also think Jennings could have a big game going against Burke and Jennings is coming off an 18 assists performance.
SF - Wesley Johnson - LAL - Salary: $4,400
This is a a guy that is way down on the list, but with Nick Young out because of his suspension, Johnson will pick up the extra minutes and start today against the Celtics. Wesley Johnson is a versatile player and he should perform well above his averages given the extra time on the court. Also getting a guy for this price opens up an opportunity to get a big ticket guy like Lebron to join Johnson at the SF position.
Other Options: Brandon Jennings, Gerald Henderson, Lebron James, Miles Plumlee, Ty Lawson, Eric Bledsoe, Derrick Favors, Aaron Afflalo, Kenneth Faried
