Kemba Walker ($6,700) is playing really good basketball right now. He’s posted games of 44.25, 30.5, 36 and 39.75 DraftKings points in his last four. After a slow start to the season, he’s been able to fill up the secondary categories, as evidenced by his 18-7-7 line from Wednesday night. He gets a prime matchup with Philadelphia who has allowed the 8th most DraftKings points to opposing PGs.
Jarrett Jack ($6,200) will be overlooked in a big way tonight. First of all, he’s always overlooked at the PG position since it’s so deep but Boston has allowed the 3rd fewest DraftKings points to opposing PGs, which will scare the masses away. He’s simply been playing too well to avoid altogether. He’s averaging a whopping 42.37 DraftKings points over his L4 games and has taken at least 10 shots in every game this year. Tack on the fact that he’s dished out 38 assists in the L4 and you’ve got yourself a big time play at a mid-tier price.
It’s worth noting that Jason Terry ($3,000) earned the start of Ty Lawson on Wednesday night. Terry is by no means a prolific scorer, but has provided plenty of value when he’s been granted the playing time. In the only two games he’s player more than 20 minutes this season, he’s posted gamed of 16 and 22.5 DraftKings points.
Lots of top tier options at SG, starting with Eric Bledsoe ($8,400). Bledsoe continues to carry the load for the Suns, leading them in almost every offensive category. His willingness to shoot (no less than 13 times in any game this season) has led to him filling up the stat sheet for 22.8 PPG. He gets the Nuggets tonight who he shredded last week for a 30-7-4 line, good for 48.75 DraftKings points.
Jimmy Butler ($7,900) will see a nice boost from the pace of this game against GSW. Butler is averaging 25.3 PPG in his last three and is the one constant in this Bulls lineup. He’s logging big minutes and could be asked to do even more if Derrick Rose sits this one out. Expect a big night from Jimmy Buckets.
It’s interesting to see how under-owned Nic Batum ($7,000) tends to be on a nightly basis. He does nothing sexy, but he provides a ton of fantasy points. Outside of the dud he posted on Tuesday, he’s dropped 42.75, 49.75 and 46.5 DraftKings points in three of four. He’s always been a nice contributor to all caregories, but he’s been asked to score the ball more as a member of the Hornets. He’s responded with 17.1 PPG and 24, 33 and 28 in those three previously mentioned games.
Amir Johnson ($4,400) makes for an interesting value play tonight. He’s earning plenty of minutes for the Celtics and has the ability to go off at any time. He’s averaging 26.3 DraftKings points per game over the L4 which is right on the number for him to reach 6x value tonight. Johnson does all of his work from close to the basket and will get a soft matchup with Brooklyn tonight. Few teams are worse at defending in the paint and Brook Lopez is one of the worst defensive bigs in the league.
I am pretty shocked to see that Andre Drummond‘s price ($9,900) has not crept over the $10k mark yet. This guy has been absolutely insane, scoring 19.1 PPG and hauling in 18.9 RPG. He’s earned a double-double in every game this year, it’s just been a matter of how big! The T-Wolves shouldn’t be able to put up much of a fight against Drummond tonight. Expect another massive game.
It’s worth pointing out that Roy Hibbert ($4,800) has averaged 25 DK points per game this season and would only need 28.8 to reach full 6x value this evening. He’s posted games of 31, 27.25, 25.75 and 27.75 in his L4 which we would absolutely take from him tonight. This is a pretty fair matchup for the big man and he should be able to sniff full value again tonight.
