NBA | Saturday 01.12.19 – Top Targets


Russell Westbrook (FD $12400, DK $11800)

Westbrook is coming off of a monster doube OT performance vs the Spurs and gets them again tonight. Do I expect that sort of production again? No, not really but Westy is certainly capable of it and on a slate with not a ton at PG he’s a solid cash option. In GPP’s, I’d rather spend elsewhere at his elevated price tag.

De’Anthony Melton (FD $4400, DK $4800)

Devin Booker isn’t expected to play so we can go back to the well and target Melton. Melton is still too cheap on both sites with his strong production in Bookers absence. While at first glance the Nuggets aren’t an ideal matchup, Denver has actually been poor defensively of late ranking 25th in defensive rating over their last 10 games. Melton will be high owned but he’s chalk I wouldn’t fade as he provides elite cap relief and upside.
