Basket Robbin’: 31 Favors

Rudy Gobert will likely miss the next six-to-eight weeks and the Magic rank 19th in defensive efficiency versus power forwards so Derrick Favors is simply the play of the night. Here are my picks for Thursday, December 3:

cash-plays

Guards (G) Forwards/Centers (F/C) Utility (UTIL)
Russell Westbrook, $19,100 DeMarcus Cousins, $19,500 Kevin Durant, $18,600

preferred-play

Note: Without Rudy Gobert manning the middle for the Utah Jazz, there should be added opportunity for Victor Oladipo to finish at the hoop. I like him as a contrarian tournament option even if he does not start.
