Russell Westbrook – $12,000

He’s the top overall play on the slate with a 60+ FDP ceiling. The Pelicans are allowing 120 ppg and Westbrook should be busy tonight. With Lowry on a b2b along with Kawhi’s return, I will be leading my lineups with Westbrook.

D.J. Augustin – $4,500

Coming off the shock win against the Spurs, D.J. Agustin gets a dream matchup against a terrible Cavs team without an identity. He’s increased his FDP output in 5 straight games and could go off against the Cavs who allow 25 assists per game.


Victor Oladipo – $9,100

This is a smash spot for Oladipo who is coming off b2b double doubles including 48 FDP against the best defense in the NBA. He is borderline matchup proof and should go back and forth against the Rockets who always struggle to defend SGs.

Lou Williams – $5,800

He’s leading the team in scoring over the last 3 games and will play heavy minutes with Jimmy Butler’s return to the TImberwolves lineup.


Wesley Iwundu – $3,500

The production isn’t there but the matchup is excellent. He played 30 minutes last home game and the Magic should abuse the Cavs all night long. Role players usually play better at home and Iwundu could have a breakout game.

Josh Richardson – $7,300

The Heat are banged up and even Whiteside is out tonight. His usage rate will be through the roof and he is the Heat’s leading scorer on the road.


Aaron Gordon – $7,700

He’s the ultimate GPP and should go off against a bad Cavs team. He’s scored at least 44+ FDP in each of his last 2 matchups VS the Cavs.

Jerami Grant – $4,900

He won’t have to guard Anthony Davis and has an athletic advantage against Nikola Mirotic. Without the foul trouble risk, he is in a great position to rack up points, steals, blocks and dunks. I’m pairing him with Westbrook in tournaments.


Myles Turner – $5,800

Play Myles Turner in pace up shootouts. He is super athletic and finally gets a matchup against a similar-type center in Capela.
