High Salary PG
Players costing over $6,667
Russell Westbrook (vs BKN – $11,700): Needs 50.3 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 51.2 fantasy points against Utah. Paul George is struggling but Russell Westbrook has had his back. The pace should be up in this one given how the Nets usually play and Westbrook will be energized from the home crowd, especially after the Utah incident. Not that Westbrook ever needs the extra energy. He always brings it and gets his numbers. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
Mike Conley (at ATL – $9,200): Needs 39.6 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 47 fantasy points against Orlando. Conley has been on a roll and I’m not doubting him right now. Especially against the Hawks. The Hawks always give out DFS points and with the way Conley is playing, he will get his DFS numbers in this one. Unless something goes horribly wrong, Conley will be in for a big night. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a high ceiling.
Tomas Satoransky (vs ORL – $6,800): Needs 29.3 fantasy points. LAST GAME – 37.7 fantasy points against Sacramento. Satoransky has been playing very well and he’s at the lower end of the salary list. The Magic play competitive games with everyone and the Wizards never lack for offense. Satoransky should be in for a good night. If you want to spend more, Steph Curry without Kevin Durant is always a strong option. Diagnosis: Very reliable with a good ceiling.
