We saw him in the Slam Dunks section on 3/28 where he put up 35.4 FP in 29 minutes. With Dennis Schroder out again, there’s no reason to think Taylor can’t keep this up. The 76ers defense is not the same with Embiid out, so Taylor should be able to see similar minutes and usage to the past two games sans Schroder.

While most people will direct their attention to Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes as fill-ins for the injured Joel Embiid, Dario Saric is set-up to benefit greatly from Embiid’s absence. In previous games with Embiid out of the lineup, Saric has seen an increase in usage (20.9% -> 23.3%) and dramatic increase in rebounds per 36 minutes (8.2 -> 10.1). With those kinds of boosts to his game, Saric is set up nicely at a very reasonable price on both sites.

DK: $11800 | Fpts: A | Value: B
If you’ve been paying attention to the Slam Dunks recently, you’ll note that it’s rare to see someone as top flight as LeBron James. Lucky for us, LeBron and the Cavaliers are hosting the Pelicans in what should be a major pace-up matchup. LeBron has been on another level since the All-Star Break, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down as the Cavs fight to hold on to the 3rd seed in the East. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better combination of top scoring with the potential for value.
