Brogdon will be a great play.
T.J. McConnell, PG – Indiana Pacers (33% rostered)
With the Indiana Pacers playoffs pretty much out of reach, it’s unlikely stars Tyrese Haliburton and Myles Turner will return this season meaning plenty of opportunity is up for grabs. T.J. McConnell always reaps the rewards baby! McConnell has been dealing in Haliburton’s absence posting at least five assists in four straight games and has scored in double figures in seven-straight games. McConnell is averaging 18.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists over his last two games. Those are stats you cannot miss out in the last week. Must-add!
