High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,667
Russell Westbrook (at ORL – $11,900): Needs 51.1 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 47.1 fantasy points against Milwaukee. It’s Russell Westbrook. And it’s Russell Westbrook in Orlando. Get ready to read a lot about this game because weird things happen every time the Thunder travel to Orlando. Like, really weird things. And something weird will happen in this one. One not weird thing will be Westbrook getting his numbers. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Eric Bledsoe (at DET – $7,000): Needs 30 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 21.7 fantasy points against Oklahoma City. Bledsoe isn’t coming off his best performance but the Bucks are going to be angry and this is a matchup Bledsoe has dominated. He’s averaging 39.9 fantasy points in his last six games against the Pistons. I have no doubt about Bledsoe against this matchup. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Tomas Satoransky (at CLE – $6,700): Needs 28.7 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 45.8 fantasy points against San Antonio. Satoransky has played well as the starter more often than not and now he gets the Cavaliers. His salary has jumped up but it’s still on the low end compared to the other high salary players. Satoransky will make happen in this matchup. Guys, the Cavs aren’t good. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
