Tonight features a relatively small slate featuring only five games. Keep in mind that this lineup is not updated, and you should update your lineup throughout the day.
Point Guard: $12,500 Russell Westbrook- This will probably be the best game tonight. Westbrook is worth the price on a short slate tonight, and he practically guarantees you at least 45 fantasy points each night. He also draws a solid matchup with the Cavaliers and may want to prove that he is the best basketball player on the planet, not LeBron.
Point Guard: $5,200 T.J McConnell- The Orlando Magic have been lenient towards the point position in terms of fantasy points allowed. This is a very safe pick best suited for cash games.
Shooting Guard: $3,700 Kyle Korver- Iman Shumpert will be sidelined against the Thunder, and that means more minutes for Korver. Yesterday he showed his potential with a 34 fantasy point game.
Shooting Guard: $5,400 Evan Fournier- His price is still down since he recently returned from an injury, so now is the perfect time to insert him into your lineup. There is some risk involved, but the potential is too great to ignore.
Small Forward: $11,500 LeBron James- The Thunder haven’t been the best at guarding small forwards this year, so this is a matchup I want to attack. As long as the game is close, LeBron gets around 40-42 minutes.
Small Forward: $5,500 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist- Kidd-Gilchrist has been excellent as of late and should continue that recent stretch of good games against Houston. The up-tempo style of the Rockets should benefit Kidd-Gilchrist.
Power Forward: $4,900 Frank Kaminsky- This is another player on the Hornets who has been a good value play lately. Kaminsky should be benefited by the matchup, but his main challenge will be staying out of foul trouble.
Power Forward: $4,800 Ryan Anderson- This price seems way too low for Anderson. He is a player with a high floor as well as a lofty ceiling. Achieving 5x value should be fairly simple for him.
Center: $6,100 Steven Adams- Without Enes Kanter, Adams has had to shoulder most of the load down low for the Thunder. He should do well on both sides of the glass against the Thunder.Follow @jackstatsblog
