PG - Goran Dragic, Miami Heat @ Philadelphia 76ers
Dragic has been sensational for the Heat over the last few games. He’s got three-straight 20-point games, which has helped him be great value in fantasy. With the inconsistency of the point guards in the Bucks-Celtics series and the lack of production from the point guards in the Spurs-Warriors series, Dragic appears to be the clear safe choice at the position.
SG - JJ Redick, Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat
Redick has been pretty inconsistent in these playoffs, but he bounced back from back-to-back quiet fantasy outings to drop 24 points and three steals in Game 4. Those three steals are most likely unsustainable, although another 20-point night is hardly out of the question. If he does so, then he’ll provide some solid value given his relatively modest price.
SF - Justise Winslow, Miami Heat @ Philadelphia 76ers
Josh Richardson is questionable to play in Game 5 due to a sprained shoulder. That’s obviously not good for the Heat, who need Richardson’s defense to prevent elimination on the road. However, it does open the door for Justise Winslow to take on a bigger role in the Heat rotation. Winslow has already shown he’s capable of stepping up to a larger role when he dropped a terrific line of 19 points, ten rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and a steal in Game 3.
PF - Jabari Parker, Milwaukee Bucks @ Boston Celtics
Parker has been absolutely brilliant for the Bucks over the last two games. The former No. 2 overall pick has not only delivered his usually solid offense, but he’s also provided some outstanding defensive numbers as well. He had five stocks in his outstanding Game 4 after getting two in Game 3. He’s likely earned himself big minutes for Milwaukee in Game 5, and while he’s unlikely to continue delivering those amounts of steals and blocks, he does still have the potential to provide solid value.
C - Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat
It speaks to Embiid’s brilliance that he still had a decent fantasy night in Game 4 despite going just 2-of-11 from the floor with eight turnovers. The Sixers superstar finished with 14 points (thanks to 13 trips to the line), 12 boards, five blocks, and a steal. Don't expect a repeat performance, though. Look for Embiid to clean up his game significantly in Game 5, especially since it’s a close-out situation. With the electric Philly home crowd cheering him on, Embiid could very easily go off in this game.
