• Russell Westbrook
    G, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook hit peak Westbrook on Thursday night, posting 26 points, nine rebounds, 13 assists, a steal, a block and five 3-pointers while going 7-of-30 from the field overall.

    To his credit, Westbrook, who is shooting .642 from the charity stripe this season, hit all three attempts with 2.9 seconds left to send this one to overtime. For as much fun as Russ's triple-doubles are, there's just no way that owners in roto formats are getting good ROI with the awful percentages. Westbrook has shifted from one of fantasy's truly elite plays to one of fantasy's truly elite punt plays. He's still a second/third-round guy in 8/9-cat, so it's not the end of the world, but his weaknesses are weighing him down in a bad way.
