With Westbrook out, Paul George is going to have to lead the Thunder offense. He sees a 5.2% usage increase without Westbrook on the floor this year. Dennis Schroder also sees a value increase and he will start at point guard. Fanduel priced up Paul George and left Schroder cheap, while Draftkings did the inverse. George is the stronger DK play, while Schroder is a stronger play on Fanduel.
With Larry Drew taking over, he seems to be giving George Hill more playing time. He has played 32 and 28 minutes since Drew took over. Hill is priced up on Fanduel, but he is still very cheap at $4,000 on DK. It’s only two games, so I don’t feel great about him in cash games, but the upside is there as a GPP play if he keeps seeing minutes in the 30 range. I do have a bit of an affinity for Cedi Osman and he has struggled in recent games, but it is hard to ignore that he played 43 minutes last night. It is hard to think he doesn’t have upside if he keeps seeing that much floor time.
