Picks for Saturday 30th January 2016:

POINT GUARD:

Russell Westbrook (OKC) – $11,100

Opponent – Houston Rockets
Average for season – 48.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 52.5 Fantasy Points

In what should be a very fast paced game look for Westbrook to dish out plenty of assists and score a lot of points.

Ricky Rubio (MIN) – $6,500

Opponent – Utah Jazz
Average for season – 29.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 34.0 Fantasy Points

No one on the Jazz roster will be able to match up with Rubio and his crafty play.

Archie Goodwin (PHO) – $4,100

Opponent – New York Knicks
Average for season – 13.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 32.8 Fantasy Points

Archie will be too quick and athletic for Calderon and having to shoulder the bulk of the offensive load he should be a great value play.

SHOOTING GUARD:

James Harden (HOU) – $10,300

Opponent – Oklahoma City Thunder
Average for season – 45.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 47.9 Fantasy Points

Harden will be hoping to have a big game against his former club and team mates.

Rodney Hood (UTA) – $5,400

Opponent – Minnesota Timberwolves
Average for season – 22.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.6 Fantasy Points

Hood has been on fire of late, scoring 30+ Fantasy Points in three of his past four games. Look for that to continue against the Wolves.

Avery Bradley (BOS) – $5,200

Opponent – Orlando Magic
Average for season – 22.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.2 Fantasy Points

In current form and at this price Bradley is providing too much value to pass up.

SMALL FORWARD:

Kevin Durant (OKC) – $10,800

Opponent – Houston Rockets
Average for season – 44.7 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 56.0 Fantasy Points

Durant will be doing everything he can to make sure his old team mate James Harden doesn’t steal a win on the Thunder’s home court.

Andrew Wiggins (MIN) – $7,100

Opponent – Utah Jazz
Average for season – 28.6 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 26.8 Fantasy Points

Wiggins has been quiet lately but he has the ability to explode and will be a tough match-up for the Jazz wingmen.

Chandler Parsons (DAL) – $6,100

Opponent – Brooklyn Nets
Average for season – 20.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 37.8 Fantasy Points

The injuries are mounting up in Dallas and Parsons has stepped up his game to keep the Mavs competitive.

POWER FORWARD:

Chris Bosh (MIA) – $7,900

Opponent – Milwaukee Bucks
Average for season – 33.5 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 34.3 Fantasy Points

Fresh off another All-Star nod Bosh will dominate against the Bucks who are terrible at defending the Power Forward position.

Kristaps Porzingis (NYK) – $6,900

Opponent – Phoenix Suns
Average for season – 28.8 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 24.1 Fantasy Points

The Suns have been decimated by injury and Porzingis should benefit from the lack of Power Forward options.

Josh Smith (HOU) – $3,500

Opponent – Oklahoma City Thunder
Average for season – 14.1 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 22.3 Fantasy Points

Smith has been rejuvenated since he returned to Houston and is putting up great value numbers on a nightly basis.

CENTRE:

Brook Lopez (BRO) – $7,900

Opponent – Dallas Mavericks
Average for season – 34.9 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.7 Fantasy Points

Big Brook will be too much to handle for the Mavs who are likely to be without their starting Centre.

Mason Plumlee (POR) – $5,800

Opponent – Charlotte Hornets
Average for season – 24.3 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 29.2 Fantasy Points

Plumlee has a great match-up here against the Hornets and should be good to return 5x value.

Alex Len (PHX) – $4,400

Opponent – New York Knicks
Average for season – 17.2 Fantasy Points
Average for last 3 – 27.7 Fantasy Points

Will get plenty of court time due to some injury woes in Phoenix.
