Russell Westbrook (OKC) – Westbrook’s price is starting to adjust to life without Kevin Durant. Still, has it moved quickly enough? At $11,200 on FanDuel, Westbrook carries a value threshold approaching 50 FanDuel points. He’s topped 50 FanDuel points in five of his last six games and he’s been held under 44 FanDuel points in just one of the last 10 games. He’s playing on a back-to-back and the third game in four nights but Portland is a matchup that should feed Westbrook’s incredible volume. The Blazers allow approximately 19 percent of play types to end in the pick-and-roll ball handler’s hands which is four percentage points above the league average. He’s carried a huge load offensively but he’s shown incredible efficiency and the matchup tonight should help feed his volume.
Chris Paul (LAC) – Paul has been on a Westbrook-lite tear with Blake Griffin out. He’s topped 43 FanDuel points in six of the eight games since Blake Griffin went down. Memphis is a difficult matchup but Paul roasted them for 53.8 FanDuel points on Monday. If choosing between Paul and Westbrook, I’d lean towards the incredible upside of Westbrook. However, if salary is a concern I don’t think Paul is a poor fallback option.
