Ivan Rabb will start for the Grizzlies on Wednesday against the Hawks.
Rabb will slide in for Bruno Caboclo and draws a matchup with John Collins. He's not an add unless he proves he can sustain production.
Placed into the starting-five, Ivan Rabb was able to stay on the floor for a total of 25 minutes; during which he shot at 50-percent rate, making his lone shot from deep, and going 4-of-4 from the foul line. His 15 points were accompanied by nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block.
Rabb may be in the starting lineup, but that does not equal consistent minutes. With that in mind, Rabb remains a high-risk value play for DFS players. If you rolled the dice on Rabb for Friday's contest, you were rewarded with a 36.3-FanDuel evening. However, it is important to note that Rabb's salary dropped from $6500 to $3800, prior to Friday's contest. If Rabb remains in the starting lineup, I can only see his salary increasing again, making him even more risky of a play.
Ivan Rabb contributed two points, three rebounds and one dime in 11 minutes of game action on Tuesday.
Rabb was playing around 30 minutes per game in the three previous contests so the 11 minutes now that Jonas Valanciunas is in the fold do not bode well for Rabb's future fantasy prospects.
Ivan Rabb drew the start for the dilapidated Grizzlies on Thursday and played 31 minutes - nearly three times his season average. He did not waste his opportunity as he posted 15 points, nine rebounds, two blocks, one assist, one steal and one turnover.
Rabb's DFS salary nearly doubled from Tuesday to Thursday. Currently, he should be cautiously added to DFS rosters for his hefty $6300 salary. In addition, with the acquisition of several players, Rabb could find himself back to his season average of 10 minutes per game. Only time will tell, but be skeptical of Rabb.
Ivan Rabb drew Tuesday's start and posted a double-double in a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Rabb recorded 19 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 33 minutes.
Rabb drew the start with Gasol on the bench. As the Grizzlies move toward protecting their top-8 protected first round pick, Rabb should see even more opportunities. Stash him on your bench if you can.
