Top-Tier Targets

Russell Westbrook ($11,300 DK, $12,000 FD): Coming off of the NBA’s second career 20-20-20 game, look for Westy to keep it rolling for Nipsey and put up another prolific, value-exceeding performance as the Thunder jockey for playoff positioning. 

Nikola Vucevic ($9600 DK, $9700 FD): Nikola went for 27-20 the last time these two met in Orlando and will look to put up a similarly-dominant line this evening as the Magic fight for their playoff spot. It’s good to target guys who are on teams with something to fight for this late in the season. 

Other options to consider:

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Josh Jackson ($5900 DK, $5800 FD): The Suns have officially hung it up this season now that Booker and Ayton are both on the shelf, look for Josh Jackson to be the facilitator for the last few games as he is likely the most talented player on their battered roster at the moment. 

DJ Augustin ($5600 DK, $5500 FD): As mentioned above with Vucevic, the Magic are very focused on winning as many games as possible which means we can rely on Augustin’s minutes + usage on any given night where the game remains competitive. He also has a great matchup against Trae Young’s defense. 

Other options to consider:

Jeremy Lamb

Cheap Punt Plays:

Troy Daniels ($3200 DK, $4300 FD): The Suns are extremely banged up and will most likely start Daniels tonight. He is an above-average three-point specialist and should rack up some assists given the lack of offensive facilitators who are healthy for the Suns at the moment. 

Sam Dekker ($3400 DK, $3500 FD): Dekker played 30 minutes last game against the Bulls which should be a sign of what to expect for the rest of the regular season now that Brooks is most likely weaning Bradley Beal down. At 3400 he is safe for Cash and has decent GPP upside. 

Other options to consider:
