This is the last night of the regular season. This is a massive slate of 12 games, and there is madness all around us. Other than the top two seeds in each conference, the other 12 playoff spots are still up for grabs. There are a lot of injuries, teams tanking, and teams trying to maneuver for playoff seeding. Tonight could get crazy so make sure to pay attention to the news.
Very few lines are out as of this writing because of all the uncertainty of who is and isn’t playing tonight. As far as salaries go, there are three guys at $12k or above. They all have some motivation, and the case can be made that they are great plays. They also could play just a half or sit out entirely. Russell Westbrook is at $12,300, LeBron James is priced at $12,100, and Anthony Davis has a $12,000 price tag. Whether you play these high-priced studs, there are still seven stars priced in the $9-11k price range.
If you want to play any of these top-end players tonight, then you’ll need to find some salary relief to fit them into your roster. This is the time of the year when plenty of value tends to open up. The only question is who will that be and when will you know who to play. Sometimes the news comes later in the day as to which players will sit and which bench players will get their chance to shine.
Here are 10 value plays that are worth considering as you set your lineup for tonight’s slate of games. Remember to check the news and injury reports, especially in the 30 minutes before lineups lock. Use all the information available to you to make the best decision possible for your lineup. Good luck and have fun!
