Small slate tonight so every play is going to be important.
PG: Russell Westbrook: $12500
The Thunder are struggling and I can guarantee Westbrook isn’t happy about it. He is going to have no problem destroying the Hawks defense and can give you 60+ fantasy points. He will be HIGHLY owned so fade at your own risk.
PG: Dennis Schroder: $6800
Bottom line is that Westbrook is giving up a lot of fantasy points to opposing Point Guards this year. This game is going to be close and Schroder should fill up the stat sheet. He has a decent usage rate at 26.6% so he should see plenty of chances to get points and assits.
SG: Anthony Morrow: $3500
Minimum price guy who is starting again tonight. He had 15 fantasy points in his last game and is one of those guys that if he gets hot can score the ball at a high rate. He is a huge risk but his upside was too much for me to pass up.
SG: Wesley Matthews: $5600
Denver isn’t very good at defending the shooting guard position and Matthews is going to see the ball a lot. Matthews has been struggling as of late and this is a perfect bounce back game for him. He put up 33.8 fantasy points last time against Denver and I could see him exceeding that tonight.
SF: Andrew Wiggins: $6300
I like any of the Timberwolves players tonight but Wiggins is my favorite. You know he is going to play a bunch and these are the games he seems to be at his best. I could see this game being close and Wiggins has huge upside if he plays his full slate of minutes. He is likely going to be the lowest owned of all the Wolves player so if you are looking for a way to be contrarian he will be a great way to go.
SF: Glenn Robinson III: $4300
Robinson is starting at shooting guard for the Pacers and has played well in his starts so far this season. He had 25.4 fantasy points in his last start and I could see him getting around that number again.
PF: Thaddeus Young: $4700
Young has really struggled as of late and his price is slowly going way down. I like his upside and his matchup with the Wizards. Not sure just how much ownership he’ll receive but he has proven he can put up big numbers in the right matchup.
PF: Paul Millsap: $8000
With the news Howard might sit Milsap is almost a must play for me. This is a game that will be big for both teams and will stay very close. I love playing power forwards against the Thunder and at Millsap’s price can easily get you value.
C: Andre Drummond: $7800
A lot of people don’t like Drummond tonight so I have jumped on the bandwagon. Drummond hasn’t exploded for a huge game in quite some time and this seems like the perfect chance for him to have one of his 20-20 games. If people fade him he can single handily bring you to a win tonight so if you are looking for a center with huge upside Drummond is a great way to go.
