The Pelican Brief

With everyone (rightfully) focusing on the Warriors/Rockets game tonight, values will be necessary for all the regulars. Consequently, punting a spot with Solomon Hill makes sense since he will likely play 30-plus minutes against the porous Nets defense and dropped 37 fantasy points on them eight days ago (although Anthony Davis was inactive). Here are my picks for Friday, January 20:
