Russell Westbrook ($12,300 FD, $11,900 DK) – With playoff seeding still being determined there’s no doubt the Thunder will be out in full force in the last game of the season which makes Westbrook an elite play.
Jamal Murray ($6,900 FD, $6,400 DK) – The biggest game of the night will be the Wolves against the Nuggets. Murray will need to bring his best out against a team that has struggled against PGs all year.
Other good buys: Trey Burke ($6,500 FD, $6,600 DK), Tomas Satoransky ($4,500 FD, $5,700 DK).
Will Barton ($7,000 FD, $7,300 DK) – Barton has been excellent down the stretch for the Nuggets and with Gary Harris still being limited Barton should be in for a heavy workload against the Wolves.
Luke Kennard ($6,100 FD, $4,300 DK) – Kennard has back to back games of 30-plus fantasy points and gets the Bulls tonight who have given up entirely, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
Other good buys: Jrue Holiday ($8,500 FD, $8,200 DK), Dameyean Dotson ($4,200 FD, $4,400 DK).
LeBron James ($12,100 FD, $11,400 DK) – With the 3 seed still in sight, LeBron will be out there against the Knicks, however, a blowout is a real possibility.
Jimmy Butler ($7,800 FD, $7,400 DK) – There is no doubt in my mind that Butler will be off his minutes restrictions in a must-win game tonight against the Nuggets and he makes for my favorite play of the night because of that.
Other good buys: Allen Crabbe ($5,800 FD, $6,200), Paul George ($7,800 FD, $7,900 DK).
Anthony Davis ($12,000 FD, $11,200 DK) – Sure the Spurs present a difficult challenge but AD is the matchup-proof and has plenty of motivation heading into the last game of the season.
Nikola Mirotic ($7,000 FD, $6,500 DK) – Mirotic has been red hot his last three games, going over 50 fantasy points in each of them. As I said earlier, the Spurs are a tough matchup but Mirotic is on a roll so you should stay with him while he’s hot.
Other good buys: Eric Moreland ($6,700 FD, $4,300 DK), Ivan Rabb ($5,700 FD, $5,200 DK).
Nikola Jokic ($11,500 FD, $10,600 DK) – My pick for the highest owned player tonight and for good reason. Jokic is in a must-win game and there has been no one hotter and more consistent that Jokic since the end of March.
Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,600 FD, $10,100 DK) – On the other side of Jokic will be Towns trying to make his first playoff experience. Towns is coming off a 26 and 13 game against Denver last time the two teams met so he makes for a great play.
Other good buys: Kyle O’Quinn ($7,200 FD, $6,900 DK), Deyonta Davis ($5,300 FD, $4,400 DK).
