You can build around Westbrook, Wall, or LeBron. There’s enough value at other positions to offset their value, particular at power forward. If you don’t like any of those three, there are strong high salary players at other positions. For example, you can get guaranteed value with Lowry, Mitchell, and George.

I’ve built a more balanced lineup, opting not to take one of the three fantasy superstars.

Explanation of the stars after each pick: Each one of my picks is ranked on a scale of one to five stars. Picks that I give five stars (∗∗∗∗∗) are players that you almost have to own and I have no reservations about owning at their price. Players that get four stars (∗∗∗∗) are players that I think are strong picks to build your roster around. Three-star players (∗∗∗) are middle-of-the-road solid picks who are fairly reliable to produce a good game. Picks receiving two stars (∗∗) are high-risk, high-reward players who do offer enough upside to be in my picks, but also have a significant risk factor that makes them dangerous. One star (∗) players are picks that are the best option around that price point, but who I don’t think are great options. I would take any one-star player over any option not in my picks, but they aren’t picks to build your roster around.
