Point Guard

Russell Westbrook – $58 – As I was writing this, Paul George was ruled out so I quickly inserted Westbrook who is the guy I am paying up for all across the industry. Russell’s already high usage rate will skyrocket with PG13 off the floor and he’s already been averaging 57.75 fantasy points per game over the last 5. The matchup vs. Bledsoe isn’t elite, but with some solid value tonight already forming, Russell will be easy to fit into your lineups.

Jordan Clarkson – $18 – Clarkson continues to be underpriced around the industry and he’s been a staple of my lineups ever since Ball went down with an injury. He’s coming off a 32 point fantasy outing against Memphis and tonight’s game should be played at an even faster pace game Clarkson plenty of chances to score on the injury riddled Clippers.
