The point guard position is filled with quality mid-tier plays in Ricky Rubio, Mo Williams, and Goran Dragic. While I do believe Chris Paul will have a big game, his price tag is too high to use in cash games. Aaron Brooks is going to be heavily owned tonight despite his low ceiling, which is why I'd rather pay for a guy like Mo Williams, who has a floor of 25 fantasy points and can blow up for 40-plus fantasy points.
The shooting guard position is loaded as Eric Bledsoe has a dream matchup vs the Nuggets. While I do like Jimmy Butler on DraftKings, is price tag is outrageous on Fanduel. Eric Gordon continues to play almost 40 minutes a game and should have no problem reaching value. Like both Clippers shooting guards in Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick. The small forward position is the best place to save money on as Danilo Gallinari and Omri Casspi are great low-tier plays that will crush their value.
The power forward position has a lot of quality mid-tier options in Tim Duncan (on DraftKings), Nerlens Noel, and Terrence Jones. However, Pau Gasol is going to be force fed the ball tonight with Derrick Rose out, combine that with the great matchup and it is easy to see why he is one of the best plays of the night. The center position is all about DeAndre Jordan because the Rockets don't have anyone that can contain him and the Clippers have no one else that can rebound the ball. Alex Len and Omer Asik are quality low-tier options that will exceed their value.
