High Priced Plays

James Harden (PG/SG), Houston Rockets

Salary: FD: $12,500 / DK: $12,200

With no Westbrook on the slate tonight, it's extremely hard not to pay up for The Bearded Wonder. Being the only player in the league this season with a 100-point game in DraftKings, Harden has arguably the highest ceiling in the league with also maintaining a floor that is similar to most normal players maximum. In his past three games Harden has shredded his opposition to the tune 83.0, 73.5, and 72.8 DraftKings points. There is no reason this trend should not continue tonight against the lowly Pelicans and it would be wise to get Harden in your lineup.

Paul George (SF), Indiana Pacers

Salary: FD: $8,600 / DK: $8,900

Coming in at less than $9,000 on DraftKings and even cheaper on FanDuel at $8,600, PG-13 is one of my favorite plays of the night. Having gone for 54+ in two out of his last four games there is absolutely no reason for George's price not to be at least $9,200. With 8 players priced higher than him tonight, George comes in at a relative discount in a juicy matchup with the Denver Nuggets. The Nugs dismantled George and the Pacers earlier this year in London with George having one of his worst games of the season. Look for George to get serious revenge tonight at home and is more than capable of giving you 50+ fantasy points in a high scoring contest.

Mid-Priced Plays

Nikola Vucevic (C), Orlando Magic

Salary: FD: $8,200 / DK: $7,800

While George is one of my favorite plays tonight, Vucevic IS my favorite play of the evening and it isn't really close. Vucevic is a steal on DraftKings tonight at $7,800 as he has gone for 48+ in each of his last three games. Vucevic should be a lock to get you 6x his salary tonight, which should always be the goal when choosing who to play. With a high floor and a monster ceiling I would not recommend fading Vucevic tonight, as he should be a cornerstone in most lineups.

Frank Kaminsky (PF/C), Charlotte Hornets

Salary: FD: $5,700 / DK: $5,700

Speaking of getting 6x your salary, with the potential to go for 40 DraftKings points, Kaminsky comes in at only $5,700 on both platforms tonight. While he hasn't gone for over 30 DK points since he returned from injury a few games ago, Frank the Tank has hovered around 28 for the past couple contests. In what should be a high scoring, tight game with the defending World Champs, look for the Hornets to give it their all tonight with Kaminsky being a huge part of the effort. It was not that long ago that Kaminsky was dropping 40 and 50 balls on the regular and tonight could be the night he regains his form

Low Priced Players

Ish Smith (PG), Detroit Pistons

Salary: FD: $4,700 / DK: $4,800

Having been named the starter on Wednesday over Reggie Jackson, Smith comes in at great value on both sites. While we would love it if he stayed the starter, Smith can easily reach his value regardless. Having poured in 20+ DraftKings points in each of his last three games, with 36.8 against Brooklyn two games ago, Ish looks like a steal at less than 5K. In a game against the defenseless Magic, Smith should see close to 30 minutes tonight with a real chance of having over 30 fantasy points on the evening.

Nik Stauskas (SG), Philadelphia 76ers

Salary: FD: $3,800 / DK: $4,200

Probably the best value of the night, Stauskas comes in at less than $4,000 on FanDuel and slightly over 4K on DraftKings. Having played over 30 minutes in three straight games, 'Sauce' has come back from the dead to score 20 points in back to back games for the 76ers. Averaging over 25 DraftKings points over his last three games, Stauskas should easily meet his value tonight and can help you fit Harden, George and Vucevic in your lineup
