This recommendation is more about the reasonable salary for Chris Paddack than the fantasy upside. Everything is going to come down to how many strikeouts Paddack can coax from a depleted Washington offense. Though he has a 24.8% strikeout rate across his last 1,100 batters faced, he can be maddeningly inconsistent. Being in the same division as the Dodgers and making appearances in Coors Field does not help those with a selective DFS memory. What does help is the Nationals lineup featuring Alcides Escobar as the leadoff hitter and Gerardo Parra as the third outfielder. Neither of those players should be in the league, let alone actually starting and seeing regular playing time. If Paddack can successfully complete the fifth inning, there is a good chance the Padres will have the lead and put him in position to earn a victory.

Of course, CP3 wasn’t the only one operating at a high level in his Finals debut. Despite not shooting the ball well, Booker’s 12 first-quarter points got the ball rolling early, and by getting to the foul line 10 times (and making all 10), he gave the Suns a rare advantage in free-throw attempts, 26-16.

Buying out his deal would save the Oilers $4 million in cap space in each of the next two seasons, and they will need it to build the depth around Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. They will take a $2 million salary cap hit in the two years following that, but the short-term savings are worth it.

Too many missed opportunities to put the Canadiens away. Those powerless power plays. Shots that rang off the goal cage. The Lightning's top two lines kept off the score sheet, despite some great looks. There isn't going to be a lot of panic here with the series still 3-1 in their favor. But they just threw their opponent a lifeline -- an opponent that's already rallied from one significant deficit in this postseason.

The superb play of Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy was a common theme during both playoff runs that resulted in championship titles. He has posted a 14-0 record following a loss in the past two postseasons. The 26-year-old puck stopper turned aside all 22 shots he faced on Wednesday night to give him five straight series-clinching shutouts. Vasilevskiy registered five clean sheets during the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 1.90 goals-against average and .937 save percentage. He was rewarded with the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP for his efforts. Vasilevskiy is the first goalie to win the award since 2012 when it was claimed by Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings.

I'm not the biggest or strongest guy but I'll be able to beat you with craft and off the dribble and get to the paint or knock it down from deep.

Antetokounmpo absolutely helped his team win Game 3. He finished with 41 points on 14-of-23 shooting, 13 rebounds, six assists, and 13-of-17 from the free throw line. The difference in Game 3 was he got more help — Jrue Holiday had 21 points and hit 5-of-10 from 3 — and also the Suns were more physical with Chris Paul and Devin Booker, not letting them get comfortable and in a rhythm.

The Celtics cannot absorb Ball into any trade exceptions and would need to send out salary to match. But there’s a new complicating factor: The artist formally known as base year compensation.

The Bucks struggled at the point guard position with Eric Bledsoe in the past two postseasons. They made a huge trade, sending three future first-round picks to New Orleans for Holiday and then investing in Holiday with four-year, $134.9 million extension.

The Rockets were set to have significant cap space this offseason after moving James Harden to Brooklyn. After trading for DJ Augustin and the 24th overall pick, and bottoming out to the second overall pick, they are now likely going to operate over the cap. Unless there is pressure to create spending power, Houston can comfortably exercise Bradley's team option and try to trade him to a good team. If they opt him in, they would be roughly $23 million below the luxury tax with 13 players on their roster, including their three first-round picks. They could still comfortably utilize the entire NT-MLE without coming remotely close to the luxury tax. Prediction: Houston exercises Bradley's team option.
