It is extremely difficult to focus in on 1 player per position, but I am certainly going to try my best to do so. Remember Slack Chat is where we can help the most, so tune in there so we can help discuss and build your lineups.

These are 5 players (one per position) whom we think are relatively must-have’s in lineup construction. You may not be able to fit all 5 in your lineups, but with the help of the cheat sheets, takedown article, and breakdown article we provide, it gives a very solid base to build successful lineups.

Point Guard – Kemba Walker

You can’t ignore what Kemba has been doing on the floor in his last 3 games, as he has been an absolute stand out performer leading into the playoffs. If you are paying up at PG, Kemba is the one to go for, especially with the fact that his price has barely risen and has had quite a few days of rest now. Lonzo Ball comes off as an intriguing option with Isaiah Thomas sitting, but because of that injury we should be looking more towards KCP. Ish Smith has been playing very well recently and comes in at great value.

Shooting Guard – Will Barton

With Gary Harris continuing to be out, Will Barton continues to see a very heavy workload. For his price he is an easy guy to select at SG and his upside is always there because of the minutes he is taking on. His matchup against the 76ers is also ideal as the 76ers have struggles guarding the SG position.

Small Forward –  Jeremy Lamb

If it wasn’t for Jaylen Brown back for the Celtics, Jayson Tatum was looking like an attractive option, but with Brown back, Lamb is looking like the better option. There is a lot of value to be had, but prices are surging on the what should be the “value” guys. This is a day to remain conservative at SF. Another interesting play would be Reggie Bullock, whom is taking on some extra minutes with Stanley Johnson out.

Power Forward – Blake Griffin

Griffin has been pretty off an on in terms of hitting his value and as of late he has most definitely been on, and it should be safe to roll with him as he gets his matchup against the Lakers whom always struggle to defend the PF/C position. PF is a place to pay up, so consider the likes of Ben Simmons who always has the possible of the triple-double. Keep Marquese Chriss in your minds as well with Tyson Chandler out.

Center – Enes Kanter

I think there are much better options available than Enes Kanter, but Kyle O’Quinn is so far ruled out and if this stands, Kanter should be getting a heavier workload since he won’t need to split minutes, or as severe as minutes as normally has to with O’Quinn. If you are looking to pay up Nikola Jokic, is getting a nice matchup, and Andre Drummond as well gets a boost in pace.
