Russell Westbrook ($10,600)

Westbrook has seven triple doubles this month, which is tied for most in a single month with Micheal Jordan. He has a chance to break the record tonight at home against the Los Angeles Clippers and his numbers this season against the Clips are more than encouraging. In three games against LA, Westbrook is averaging 27.3 points, 12.7 assists, and 7.3 rebounds. These numbers alone are reason enough to pick him.

Michael Beasley ($5,000)

It sounds ludicrous to pick Beasley in any setting, but he's been a productive player for the Rockets since joining at the beginning of the month. Beasley is averaging 15.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in his last 10, which, as a backup pick, is good value for a player costing just $5,000.

Kevin Love ($6,800)

Playing at home against Brooklyn, Love has a strong chance for a big game, and at $6,800 is worth the price. While he's been a little inconsistent, the array of ways he can collect fantasy points -- scoring, rebounding, and 3-point shooting -- are worth the small gamble. Plus, there the alternatives (Thaddeus Young, Kenneth Faried) don't have quite the upside of Love.

Brook Lopez ($7,600)

Lopez was limited on Tuesday against Orlando due to a virus, finishing with just five points and three rebounds in 15 minutes. When full strength however, he has been very productive, consistently scoring 20+ points and totaling near season average rebounding numbers. His play against Cleveland has been good as well, averaging 20 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in three games.

Elfrid Payton ($5,900)

He's recorded two double-doubles in a row, and recorded a triple-double of 20 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds recently against Detroit.  Case in point, Payton is on a hot streak, which makes him a high value pick at under $6,000.
