Small Forward

Gordon Hayward vs Los Angeles Clippers:

Hayward has been playing big minutes and he’s been putting up big numbers. This game should stay close which means he should play in the mid-30s in minutes. In the last five out of six games, he has played at least 30 minutes, he has scored at least 27 points. For this specific slate of games, Hayward might be the best play at small forward. This may drive up his owner percentage but sometimes you need to play the chalky players and take the points.

Robert Covington vs Charlotte Hornets:

Covington has picked up the scoring load for the 76ers ever since Joel Embiid went out with injury. Sir Covington fills up the stat sheet and if his shot is falling he can put up 40-50 fantasy points. The 76ers need Covington to carry the offensive load again and he is more than happy to do so. Small forward is very thin tonight and Covington will be in all of my lineups.
