Maurice Harkless, SF, Portland Trail Blazers

FanDuel Price: $4,700
Projected FanDuel Points: 20.5
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.36

In the last three games in which Maurice Harkless saw a more prominent role with Evan Turner out, the Portland Trail Blazers' forward has filled out the stat sheet and put up some big fantasy games.

Harkless has averaged 11.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 25.6 minutes per game. He finished with at least 28 FanDuel points in all three contests while averaging 31.6 per night. While his salary has climbed up, it still remains a reasonable $4,700. That gives Harkless a good shot at earning value tonight in an easier than it appears matchup against the Boston Celtics with Turner staying on the sidelines.

The Celtics have lost three in a row while allowing an average of 122.0 points in their last two games. They will be on the second game of a back-to-back where they where thrashed 118-95 by the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday. During their losing streak, opponents are shooting 48.1% from the floor and 41.0% from deep while grabbing nearly 50 rebounds per game and blocking 6.7 shots per game -- all top-four marks in the league.
