Russell Westbrook, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

Price: $11,100

Russell Westbrook has only played 14 games this season thanks to some injury issues early on, but he's shown no ill-effects since returning to action.

In his seven games since returning, he has topped 58 FanDuel points three times (including a season-high 70.1 FanDuel point game), with three triple-doubles in that time.

There's been some inconsistency in his numbers, but that is thanks to his minutes getting cut short in a couple of blowouts, with 32.9 and 29.0 minutes in two games with margins of victory above 25. Removing those games, he's averaging 35.7 minutes and 56.1 FanDuel points per.

Tonight's game doesn't project to be super close, but the Oklahoma City Thunder are seven-point favorites, so the blowout risk also isn't huge.

A matchup with the Brooklyn Nets also positions Westbrook well for another big night, as the Nets sit only 21st in defensive rating and 22nd in rebound rate on the season.
