Damian Lillard ($6400) – Lillard has looked great to start the season and his price is slowly creeping up from the $5000 starting level. I would guess this is the last week he’ll be priced below $7000, so use him now in a great matchup against the weak Mavs defense.
Darren Collison ($5900) – Collison is still very cheap, even after turning in a couple of solid performances, and tonight he gets a matchup against the inexperienced defense of Damian Lillard. Great value here.
Mo Williams ($6300) – Williams has been jacking up non-stop threes and should continue that trend tonight. This isn’t as good of a matchup as he usually gets because the backcourt of Mike Conley and Tony Allen is pretty good defensively, but it’s still pretty juicy for the salary price.
Dwyane Wade ($8700) – I think Wade is a must play tonight if you have the salary cap space. He’s shown to be healthy and has a favorable matchup against a fast paced Suns team with Jared Dudley opposing him at SG.
Paul George ($7100) – George will match up against Danny Green tonight and should post a big line.
Dion Waiters ($5500) – Fanduel has been a little slow to adjust Waiters’ salary, so if you want to gamble on a bargain at shooting guard, Waiters is great option against the weak defense of Jamal Crawford.
Dorell Wright ($6800) – Jason Richardson is out tonight and I’d expect that Evan Turner and Nick Young will handle the SG spot, which leaves Wright to absorb most of the minutes at SF. He needs to make a strong showing to make a case for future minutes.
Danny Green ($5600) – Check Manu Ginobili’s health status and if it looks like he’s out, then grab Green as a great low salary sleeper tonight.
Carmelo Anthony ($8300) – Melo is about all the Knicks have going on the offensive side of the ball and he should be able to abuse Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes for a big night.
Michael Beasley ($6500) – Beasley put up a real stinker to start the season, but has bounced back nicely. His salary still reflects his one bad game and he should be able to earn his $6500 salary against Miami since the Suns will likely be in catch up mode all night. Sometimes garbage time stats are good.
J.J. Hickson ($6800) – Fanduel still has Hickson listed at PF, so feel free to use him against the Mavs. Chris Kaman is still a bit limited, so Hickson could have an opportunity to get the best of him.
Chris Bosh ($7600) – Bosh is an interesting play after scoring 40 points Saturday against the Nuggets. He’s matched up against Marcin Gortat who gave up a huge game to the inexperienced Nikola Vucevic. Gortat could be a little fatigued after playing last night and Bosh could take advantage. Sometimes it’s just smart to ride the hot hand, and Bosh certainly had it Saturday.
Brook Lopez ($6900) – Lopez catches a scheduling break here with Kevin Love out of the lineup. He should be able to put up decent points against the more immobile Nikola Pekovic.
Anderson Varejao ($7000) – Varejao has put up a couple of monster games and makes a solid mid-range salary play against a Clippers team who hasn’t been rebounding all that well.
Roy Hibbert ($7400) – Hibbert will have a big size advantage against the Spurs if they choose to go with Boris Diaw at center. More than likely, Tiago Splitter will get the bulk of the minutes, but that’s still a pretty good matchup for Hibbert.
