Week 21 Start/Sit: Leave Aaron Gordon on the Bench?
Week 21 Start/Sit: Leave Aaron Gordon on the Bench?

A pair of teams – the Clippers and the Cavaliers – have only two games in Week 21, while every other squad has at least three. As a result, we'll want to avoid players from LA and Cleveland when possible, possibly looking to stream in some players on four-game weeks. Here's how things break down:

He's taken 28 total shots over the previous pair of games, averaging 23.5 points, 4.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals.
