Welcome to the new Monday edition of the NBA Industry Consensus picks. With the NFL regular season coming to an end we have added Monday to the list of days that we will publish the Industry Consensus picks and grade the experts.

Tonight we have a solid 10-game slate of NBA action tonight with a nice mix of high-priced studs and cheap options to fill out your DFS lineups. As always injuries and missed games have opened up some nice plays for tonight especially in the Highly Touted section.

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Russell Westbrook (10) – With Kevin Durant out, Westbrook is basically a must start
  • Draymond Green (9) – With Stephen Curry questionable to tonight, Green and his back-to-back triple-doubles is a good play again
  • Shane Larkin (8) – With Jarrett Jack out the rest of season, the inexpensive Larkin will get the start and increased minutes
  • Patty Mills (7) – Should see increase in minutes with Tony Parker out, cheap option

Recommended

  • Evan Turner (6) – Should get increased minutes with Avery Bradley out
  • Rodney Hood (6) – Coming off 32-point effort with increased minutes on Saturday
  • Nerlens Noel (5) – Averaging 16 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 2.2 blocks over his last 5 games
  • Joe Johnson (5) – He could see an increase in shots with Jarrett Jack out
  • Karl-Anthony Towns (5) – Has favorable matchup against the Sixers
  • Ricky Rubio (5) – See Towns
  • Gordon Hayward (5) – Consistent production, averaging 18.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game this season 

Suggested

  • Ish Smith (4) – Coming off two straight poor games, will look to bounce-back against T’Wolves
  • Kawhi Leonard (4) – Consistent production, averaging 20.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game this season
  • Chris Bosh (4) – Has scored 20+ points in 7 out of his last 8 games
  • Isaiah Thomas (4) – Has scored 20+ points with 6+ assists in each of his last 3 games
  • Jeff Withey (4) – Cheap option, averaging 11.5 points and 8.5 rebounds over last 4 games filling in for Derrick Favors
  • Brook Lopez (4) – Averaging 26.6 points and 13.3 rebounds over last 3 games
  • Kemba Walker (4) – Has scored 29+ points in 3 of his last 4 games
  • Klay Thompson (3) – Should continue to see increased production if Stephen Curry is out tonight
  • Tristan Thompson (3) – Has had increased minutes over his last 3 games averaging 32 minutes per game
  • DeMarcus Cousins (3) – Always capable of a huge game and plays in the highest Vegas total tonight against the Thunder
  • Mario Chalmers (3) – Will likely start and see an increase in minutes if Mike Conley is out tonight, watch starting lineups
  • CJ McCollum (3) – Could see a decrease in usage if Damian Lillard returns tonight
  • Dion Waiters (3) – Could see increased minutes with Kevin Durant out
  • Andre Drummond (3) – Continues to put up huge rebounding totals every night
  • Marc Gasol (3) – Averaging 19.2 points and 5.8 rebounds over his last 4 games
  • Frank Kaminsky (3) – Played in a season-high 33 minutes on Saturday with Nicolas Batum out, Batum will be out again tonight making Kaminsky a potential cheap option tonight
  • Andrew Wiggins (3) – Scored 32 points against the Sixers earlier this season
  • Paul George (3) – Scored 30+ points in each of his last 2 games

Hope you find the right combination to cash!
