Russell Westbrook ($12,000) - $12,000 is a pretty good price for Westbrook, who is consistently a strong option at PG.
Isaiah Thomas ($9,500) - Thomas' price has continued to inflate for the past month, and for good reason. I think we're getting close to the point at which Thomas is overvalued, but he's scored 50+ DKP in 5 of his last 6, so I don't know if we've quite reached that point. Avery Bradley (SG, $5,500) is a game time decision. If Bradley is out, I think Thomas is a strong play tonight. But if Bradley plays for the first time in two weeks tonight, I'm not as high on Thomas, who has benefitted from Bradley's absence. Thomas has a moderately strong negative correlation with Bradley (-0.34), suggesting that an increase in Bradley's role will most likely be accompanied with a decrease in Thomas' role.
Goran Dragic ($7,400) - Dragic has been a recurring value player, because he continues his solid production as a second-tier PG option. The Heat's injury problems have led to Dragic taking more of a feature role as the team's primary offensive option. $7,400 isn't an incredible price for Dragic, but in my opinion it is more reasonable than other pricier options such as Eric Bledsoe ($9,000), Steph Curry ($8,500).
Mike Conley ($7,300) - The price for seems pretty reasonable. I like Conley's upside tonight, as we rarely see a Memphis implied point total as high as it is tonight (108.5). Conley's production doesn't take off in a huge way amidst high-scoring games, but he does tend to do a little better when the Grizzlies approach 110 points.
Yogi Ferrell ($4,000) - With Deron Williams and J.J. Barrea both injured, Ferrell has been getting huge minutes and has been pretty productive (averaging 32.375 DKP on 37 minutes in his past two games). Tonight's matchup against Philadelphia figures to be rather favorable for Ferrell.
None - I'm not that high on Jimmy Butler tonight. His price isn't terrible (it's not great), but I just don't think it's a very good matchup for him. Butler's production tends to be significantly lower when the Bulls fail to reach 100 points and lose, and with an implied point total of 101.75 and an OKC -3 line I'm a little concerned about both of these things happening. Plus, Andre Roberson figures to spend a lot of time guarding Butler and I think he's a high-caliber defender that can have a major impact on the production of his opponent.
Devin Booker ($7,000) - Booker tends to moderately increasing value as the Suns put up more points (109 implied points tonight) and also has good production in losing efforts. If the Suns-Clippers game becomes a shootout I think Booker has some decent upside.
Seth Curry ($5,400) - Curry has pretty solid production across spreads, and tends to have modestly (although sometimes random) increasing production when the Mavs top 100 points. But I really like Curry tonight simply due to injuries to Andrew Bogut and Deron Williams, who Curry negatively correlates with (-0.24 and -034 respectively).
Rodney Hood ($4,100) - Hood for $4,100 is a steal, as he's usually priced North of $5,000.
Hood has pretty stable production (with moderately increasing production) from the 95-110 point range (103.25 implied point totals tonight) and across a range of spreads in Utah wins.
LeBron James ($10,200) - LeBron is a perrenial fantasy stud, and tonight's matchup doesn't present any glaring reason to have concerns about his value.
Wes Matthews ($4,700) - The injuries to Bogut, Williams, and Barrea don't help out Matthews a ton (see DAL correlation matrix in SG section), but $4,700 is a pretty good price for Matthews, and his production does tend to increase with Dallas' scoring total. With a relatively high implied point total tonight (105.75) I think Matthews could be a nice value play, with a high likelihood of being worth 5+ DKP/$1K.
None - Last night I was cautious of DeMarcus Cousins as he and his Kings were huge underdogs against the Rockets (he only put up 31.75 DKP in a 22-point loss). Similarly, I'm a little concerned about the risk of Karl-Anthony Towns, who tends to have a significant drop off in production when the Timberwolves lose by double digits. They are huge dogs tonight (+7), but I still have some concerns about the game becoming non-competitive and KAT being relatively unproductive.
Blake Griffin ($7,500) - $7,500 is a good price for Griffin. He hasn't had a breakout performance since returning from injury, but one of those games (the most recent) was a 46-point loss to the Warriors, in which Griffin only played 23 minutes. Tonight's matchup against the Suns figures to be relatively high-scoring (111.5 implied points) and close (LAC -2.5), both of which bode well for Griffin, who should be the team's primary offensive option with the absence of Chris Paul.
Carmelo Anthony ($7,500) - With Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis as potential scratches for the Knicks tonight, I like the potential upside of Carmelo in a game that is expected to be high-scoring (112.75 implied points). As you can see below, Melo's production tends to peak right around tonight's implied point total.
Anthony Davis ($10,500) - $10.5K is a pretty good price for Davis, and as mentioned above, I don't really like KAT tonight, making Davis the de facto stud at center. The matchup isn't exceptional for Davis, but he does have some decent upside if the game is closer and higher-scoring than expected.
Brook Lopez ($6,700) - Lopez tends to be pretty productive when the Nets top 100 points, and that would appear to be a pretty good bet tonight given their implied point total of 110.75. Lopez also tends to be more productive the closer the game is, and the Nets matchup with the Knicks figures to be as close of a game on paper as the Nets can hope for.
Tristan Thompson ($4,800) - Thompson doesn't have a ton of upside for high-scoring games, but he does offer a lot of stability across a wide range of spreads, which would make him a safe play even if the Cavs win big. Thompson figures to benefit from the absence of Kevin Love, with whom he has a moderately negative correlation (-0.29)
