Darius Miller 2017-2018 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

Miller has been a huge surprise for the Pelicans this season and his floor spacing has been a huge boost. He played 28 minutes compared to four for Dante Cunningham and Cheick Diallo was a DNP-CD, so Miller may the biggest winner in fantasy if Anthony Davis' groin injury forces him to miss time (he's already considered doubtful for Saturday). He has at least two 3-pointers in 13 out of his last 14 games and is worth a long look in deeper formats.

This guy is worth a look? Kyle Korver like.

I just picked him up. I'm in a points league, and I'm only 7 away from the lead (420), so I'm taking advantage of his 4 game week, and sweet schedule (GS, PHO, DEN, PHI). Hopefully he doesn't let me down.

I think it makes a lot of sense for the Pelicans to give Miller more minutes. Rondo approaching 30 minutes per game requires floor spacers around him. I don't really understand the point of running Diallo heavy minutes when AD is out. His game is nothing like AD's. Sure, rebounding will be a bit of an issue, but from the Blazer game I watched it looked like Rondo was helping rebound often. Plus, with Miller instead of Diallo they can play faster. Cunningham will get minutes but he just isn't that good. 

 

If Miller gets 30+ minutes I think he is a really intriguing 3 point specialist. By being on the court for that many minutes he will run into a handful of boards and assists. Points in low teens. Majority of shots will be 3's. You could do worse than that while AD is out.

Strictly added for the 3 games with small slates this week. Hoping he gets 30 plus with AD down.

3.1 3PTM over 10 games is no Jokic! (I'm using my free slot from Nikola's injury on him).

 

And as others have mentioned the (favourable) 4 game slate is looking mighty delicious too!

He has 4 actually, making him an even more appealing streaming option.

Since he started getting 30+ mins five games ago, he's been a 6th round value:

That was before the Cousins injury. His usage will probably be going up a bit going forward.

Fools gold.  You can ignore tonight’s line because the Rockets don’t play defense.  The winner is Anthony Davis alone.  You’d have to be desperate for 3’s to pick up Miller.

You have to admit it's pretty incredible that Houston is the 3rd best defensive team this season without even trying :blink:

Pretty much agree except AD is not a "winner."  He was already the #1 player in 9 cats.  Now AD will have to take all of the pounding Cousins was absorbing.

I think Rondo is the winner here. His usage will be up I believe. Worth the grab if he is out there.
