Player To Watch: Rajon Rondo (Guard – Chicago Bulls)

For Daily Fantasy Basketball Managers gazing the charts hoping to lock down a player that bodes tremendous upside in those Head to Head, League, or Tournament formats, we are always on the move hoping to do so.

With the Chicago Bulls look fighting for playoff positioning in the rugged Central Division of the Eastern Conference, point guard Rajon Rondo’s post-season experience is an asset for the Bulls.

Rajon Rondo is a true facilitator

He provides the leadership the Bulls will require to get over the playoff hump and in to the post-season. Currently, the Bulls are in a dogfight with three other constituents of the Central Division as Indiana, Milwaukee, and Detroit are all fighting for those final playoff berths with the defending division and NBA champion, the Cleveland Cavaliers sitting pretty far in front of both clubs.

Rondo has made his way around the league in recent years as he did a stint in Sacramento before coming to the Windy City. Enthusiasts recall Rondo’s glory days as a member of the Boston Celtics where alongside Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Rondo would help the dynastic franchise capture yet another title against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rondo is a regular starter and currently bodes a 6 Value rating next to his name at a salary of $5,400.

Rondo is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted players in the RBA

The man is an assist machine and he can generate a lot of assists if shooter Jimmy Butler gets hot. Rondo also can score as well as he is very nimble at picking up steals.

This is the kind of diversity daily fantasy basketball managers should look for as players like Rondo bode tremendous and upside.

One of Rondo’s most recent performances?

A 24-point, 8 assist, 5 rebound and 4 steal night against the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors defense is one of the better units in the Eastern Conference and Rondo dialed up some of his vintage game to put together a 43.6 FDP evening at the Air Canada Centre.

Keep an eye on Rondo moving forward as the Bulls continue to fight for an at-large playoff berth.
