Article Summary:

Start: Doug McDermott, Spurs

10% start rate in CBS leagues

McDermott is the beneficiary of a rare five-game week and comes into it with some momentum, as he’s averaged 14.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 23.5 minutes in his first two games back from a four-game absence due to a knee injury.

Centers

Start: Mitchell Robinson, Knicks

25% start rate in CBS leagues

Foul trouble can be a recurring theme with Robinson, but what he’s able to provide in the areas of rebounds and blocks, in particular, can make him worth the trouble on certain weeks where you’re in dire straits at center.

Start: Dewayne Dedmon, Heat

18% start rate in CBS leagues

Bam Adebayo still projects to remain out for several weeks following thumb surgery, so Dedmon should be in for another week of starts. Ayton remains a rock-solid option at center on three- or four-game weeks, but he’s at a distinct disadvantage this week, so consider shelving him in favor of a four-game player.
