Russell Westbrook (11800 DK, 12000 FD) – A matchup for Westbrook versus the Suns is a dream scenario for fantasy production with OKC’s team total more than 10 points higher than their season average. That means that Westbrook’s performance tonight should on average greatly exceed his season averages. His price is adjusted upwards to adjust for that, but with the lack of value point guards, he is the top option on the slate. Probability of top 3 positional value: 27.7% DK, 32.4% FD.
Jamal Crawford (3900 DK, 4300 FD) – With Jimmy Butler, Jamal Crawford has consistently seen minutes in the mid 20’s. His price is low right now because of a recent cold streak which I think will also discourage players from rostering him. With the lack of other value options on today’s slate, he has a great chance of winning people some leagues tonight. Probability of top 3 positional value: 21.7% DK, 26.8% FD.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (3600 DK, 3700 FD) – Although Kidd-Gilchrist’s game log is comically bad, I think he has a great chance to return to form this evening. They are facing the Nets which is always a great up-pace matchup. In addition, his minutes look worse than they should, because he was ejected from Charlotte’s last game near the end of the first half while on pace for more than 30 minutes. Probability of top 3 positional value: 15% DK, 29.1% FD.
