This is an interesting slate tonight. The Chicago Bulls will face off against the Golden State Warriors. The Phoenix Suns will face off against the Charlotte Hornets. The Portland Trailblazers will face off against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
That is it - there are some great matchups, but it is difficult to build an adequate lineup with only three games. Regardless, this article will help with that process.

The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.Editor's Note: Our industry-leading NBA DFS Lineup Optimizer/Generator tool helps you build winning DFS lineups in seconds.

FanDuel DFS Guards
Russell Westbrook - PG, at POR ($12,800)
It would be irresponsible as a fantasy owner to not take advantage of Russell Westbrook against the Portland Trailblazers, the fastest paced team in the league. This is going to be an explosion of fireworks, and it is possible that Westbrook posts another 40-plus point triple-double. With over 60 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games, it is obvious that the Oklahoma City Thunder star can be used in both 50/50 contests and tournaments. He posted just under 75 fantasy points a few games ago against the New York Knicks, showing off his upside. With only three games to choose from, it is important to start with Westbrook when constructing lineups tonight.
Also Consider: Klay Thompson - SG, at CHI ($7,000)

Jimmy Butler - SF, vs GSW ($9,000)
Of all the forward options on the board tonight, Jimmy Butler is the best. Butler struggled in his last game, which was against the Denver Nuggets, and while surprising, it is not a foreshadowing of something to come. Butler should bounce back rather easily. The Golden State Warriors are without Kevin Durant for a few weeks, and Butler is going to take advantage of that hole in the defense. He has over 40 fantasy points in four of his last five games. Roster Butler in both 50/50 contests and tournaments, as the injury to Durant makes sure there are enough value options to go around.
Also Consider: Andre Iguodala - SF, at CHI ($4,800)

Alan Williams - C, vs CHA ($4,900)
Alan Williams has great upside, and on a short, three- game slate, it is important to find players like Williams. He is still rather cheap, he is playing decent minutes, and he has huge potential. Two games ago, he posted over 45 fantasy points in 34 minutes against the Milwaukee Bucks. He posted just under 20 fantasy points in his last outing, which is not great, but imagine he has a huge outing again tonight - if he is not in that lineup, that lineup likely is going to lose. Williams is obviously best suited for tournaments, but on a short slate, he is usable in all leagues.
Also Consider: Robin Lopez - C, vs GSW ($4,800)
