Core 4

Willy Hernangomez (DK $3,800) (FD $5,400) 

Absolute lock on DK, something to consider on FD. I have honestly been playing Willy in GPPs for about the last week just because he is such a good per minute producer and has had really good matchups. Willy has been at 1.2 DK point per minute on the year, and he should see 25+ minutes tonight with Zeller out. That is just an absolute smash on DK. 

Russell Westbrook (DK $11,700) (FD $12,000) 

You are certainly paying for him, but he is probably the safest stud on the slate, and it just so happens that he also has the best matchup. Yes, if AD plays, that matchup is really good but anytime we can get Russ in an uptempo spot, we have to take advantage. He came out and said the other day that he has been letting his team down and needed to step up, and that is just what he did last time out with 32, 11 and 11 for 72.25 DK points. I am not overthinking this, there is plenty of value on the slate and really no reason not to play Westbrook here. 

Terry Rozier (DK $5,300) (FD $4,300) 

FanDuel is so strange to me, they price a guy like Hernangomez up, but they miss on this one when it was pretty clear Kyrie was going to sit. He is an absolute lock over there tonight, and I still really like him over on DK. We have seen what he has been able to do in the past without Kyrie, and this is a good matchup. Minnesota has struggled against PG’s all year. By no mean has Rozier been constant or even good this year but when he gets minutes he produces, especially in the peripheral stats. With the Boston starters being such poor rebounders, this is a spot where Rozier can absolutely collect the boards and possibly even flirt with 10 of them. Anytime Kyrie misses, I just play Rozier and don’t think twice about it. 

Devin Booker (DK $8,300) (FD $8,600) 

Excellent price on both sites and some may be wondering why I don’t have Bradley Beal here. Price is the main thing. Booker is $300 less on DK and I could see going either way there but on FD, there is no way you should play Beal over Booker at $1,200 less. Philly has really struggled with high usage guards and that is exactly what Booker is. His upside is right there with Beal and I am just going to take the discount.
