GPP Plays are about finding low ownership and high ceilings to help take down a major tournament. We highlight two high-priced, mid-priced, and low-priced plays across the Main Slate. Be sure to check out our new revamped Colossus lineup optimizer.

This is Russell Westbrook and he simply produces each and every night. When sites like DK has Triple-Duuble bonus he is even more valuable. The issue of course is an elite play like Westy will cost you each and every night. Tonight I am willing to take the plunge in some GPP lineups and cash too. It feels like one of those nights where he will be the player in lineups that cash. Projected for 56.9 with the capability to put up 75 on any given night is something I am willing to pay for tonight.

LeBron James (SF/PF), Cleveland Cavaliers

James is in a tougher defensive matchup technically but this is King James and matchups, or DvP shouldn't concern you. James has been playing heavy minutes, among the most in the NBA and has only scored less than 50 DK points twice in his last 7 games. If Kevin Love misses once again tonight James will be a chalky, but solid GPP play tonight as well.

Mid-Priced Picks

Rudy Gobert ( C), Utah Jazz

Gobert's price has dropped significantly since he was up to $7,500 on DK. Under 7K tonight is simply too tempting and the Bucks play favorably against pass blocking defenders such as Gobert. This makes a solid GPP play who will most definitely have lower ownership and at a fantastic price. His last four games he has hovered around 35 DK points, with one game with only 23.75. His ceiling is much higher however, so I am taking full advantage tonight.

Mike Conley (PG), Memphis Grizzlies

Mike Conley won some GPP's in his last start on the 30th of January in Phoenix with a mostrous performance and 65.5 DK points. Conley is now averaging 36.9 DK points a game, and although another 38 real point performance isn't likely tonight, he is facing one of the worst defensive teams against the point guard position tonight. Look for plenty of Conley usage and assists tonight. He seems to continually get overlooked in GPP contests, so he should be lower owned once again.

Low-Priced Picks

Dirk Nowitzki (PF/C), Dallas Mavericks

Prior to his last game with a pedestrian 19 DK points, he had two 33 plus DK point performances. Tonight Dirk should be well rested since the Mavs haven't played since the 29th so the old fella should have fresh enough legs and this game should remain close enough he will get some good run. The price is right for a 5X projection for sure.

Yogi! He has become a DFS darling over the past week, and rightfully so. He has a somewhat tougher matchup tonight but at this price and seemingly locked for 34 plus minutes a night now, Yogi should meet 5X value most nights easily while approaching 6 or even 7X a reality as well. Tonight we have him projected for 34.2 DK points which is good for 8.2X.
