There’s some really nice value this time around on FanDuel and we certainly love value. With the season winding down, let’s try to focus on teams that are still playing for something and/or have predictable lineups. With that in mind, let’s look at some options for cash games.

Russell Westbrook: $13,500
I never thought the day would come where I would be recommending someone at this price but the matchup Russ has tonight is just too good to pass on. On top of the sweet matchup with one of the worst teams guarding the point, Westbrook obviously has the chance to make history tonight with one more triple-double. Watch out for a huge performance from Westbrook as he should have pretty high ownership in cash games.
Jamal Murray: $4,300
With Jameer Nelson out, Murray has managed to consistently hit value in his increased court time. Point guards have been doing very well against OKC this year as Westbrook is hunting rebounds and not paying attention to his man off-ball. Murray looks to be one of the safest value plays for cash games on this slate.
*Note: consider Tyler Ulis and Ricky Rubio
Devin Booker: $8,100
Like Tyler Ulis, Booker is playing insane minutes right now as the season comes to a close. He is the number one option on offense and is getting plenty of looks while the Suns play at one of the fastest paces in the league. All these ingredients make for a high-floor pick and can be utilized in all formats.
Victor Oladipo: $5,800
I don’t typically like to recommend Oladipo due to Westbrook’s propensity to take over a game and not leave much production for others. However, he has looked more consistent as of late and has a very nice matchup against Gary Harris and, assuming he gets the touches, should be a solid play in most formats.
*Note: Consider Garry Harris (preferred over Oladipo)

Andrew Wiggins: $7,700
I’m going to be paying up for small forwards today mainly because there is a lack of value plays at this position. Wiggins is the most expensive play at the three and is still getting huge minutes for coach Thibbs. Look for Wiggins to have his way with the defensively weak Lakers.
Danilo Gallinari: $6,700
Denver is a team who still has something to play for and that puts Gall in a very nice position. Much of the offense still runs through him and they’re going to rely on him to do most of the damage from the wing. He is trending up and still comes at an affordable price especially with all the value today.
*Note: Consider T.J. Warren and Harrison Barnes’ replacement
Willy Cauley-Stein: $6,300
Yes, WCS is a power forward on FanDuel. As strange as that is, it actually works out for us as he represents a nice mid-range option at the four. Cauley-Stein is getting consistent minutes and against the Rockets, who are not incredibly strong inside, he could easily hit value.
Jared Dudley: $4,000
Dudley has received minutes in the 30s for three straight games now and represents great value assuming he continues to see minutes. Again, I like Suns players all the time because of the pace they play at along with consistent time for starters. Feel confident using Dudley in all formats.
*Note: Consider Skal Labissiere
Boban Marjonovic: $3,600
So… yeah. Boban. I love this guy and the production he can put up on a per minutes basis baffles me. He played 28 minutes on Friday and scored a career high 27 points to go along with 12 boards. It’s safe to say that if Marjonovic gets similar minutes tonight he will be the most popular pick of the night but also an essential one. My favorite play of the slate by far.
*Note: Consider Karl-Anthony Towns
