GuardsForwards/Centers
Top-TierRussell Westbrook (WAS) – FP 57.97 He has absolutely been on fire over the last month or so. He has now scored triple doubles in nine out of the last 11 games. I’m not talking about small triple doubles but these are monster triple doubles. Last game against Toronto, he played 40 minutes and was able to cash in for 23 points 14 rebounds and 11 assists. He also only had four turnovers to go along with it. Tonight, he gets Orlando Magic in what is expected to be a high scoring game. Look for him to continue this stretch. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets another triple double and should be a safe play tonight.Nikola Jokic (DEN) – FP 56.71 Just like Russell, every time Jokic steps on the floor it seems like he is going to get a triple double. Last game against Detroit Pistons wasn’t a great one for him though. This was because the Denver Nuggets got up really big really early and didn’t require a lot of minutes from him. He only played 27 minutes but was able to contribute with 27 points eight rebounds and eleven assists. He was still able to salvage his value. Tonight, he gets the San Antonio Spurs in what is supposed to be a much closer game. As long as he gets his usual mid 30s playing minutes look for him to easily return value.
Mid-TierTrae Young (ATL) – FP 45.57 The Atlanta Hawks were very efficient from the three point land last night. They shot an amazing 65% from the distance. A lot of this had to do with their young superstar Trae, who was able to chip in for 30 points in 12 assist. He did all of this while only playing 31 minutes. They went up big pretty fast and didn’t require a lot of playing minutes from Trey but tonight against Memphis might be a little closer contest. At this price he’s a safe play.  

Caris LeVert (IND) – FP 39.14 Since joining the Indiana Pacers, he has consistently played more minutes and starting to contribute in each category. We also know that Malcolm Brogdon is sidelined with a hip injury and that means Caris plays an even bigger role. Last night against Chicago, was a blowout loss but he was still able to log in 20 points six rebounds and five assists. Tonight, he gets the Minnesota Timberwolves with a much closer line and expecting this game to be a close one throughout. Look for him to play big minutes in easily able to return value
Jaylen Brown (BOS) – FP 42.26 He has flown under the radar but has been a really consistent scorer for the Boston Celtics over the last couple weeks. He has now scored over 20 points in last three out of the five games. He is also shooting the ball well and contributing with enough rebounds and assists. Last game against Philadelphia was a blowout loss and that resulted into him only playing 33 minutes but as long as he gets his usual minutes, he should be able to go over that 20 point mark again tonight against New York Knicks. He should be able to return value  

Miles Bridges (CHA) – FP 31.19 He has now played an average of over 30 minutes in the last three games . He is also scored a double-double in his previous game against Indiana. He is not shooting the ball relatively well but with those kinds of minutes in against an up-tempo team like Oklahoma City , look for him to bounce back and be able to return value
Low-Tier Goga Bitadze (IND) – FP 23.22 This one is a very deep and this is predominantly because their starting center Domantas Sabonis has been injured and ruled out of the game. Last game against Chicago he played 19 minutes and was able to log in with four points three rebounds and six assists to go along with three blocks. At this price if he gets the same minutes or more against Minnesota look for him to easily be able to return value
