It’s worth noting that Shelvin Mack ($6,000) continues to produce big games for the Utah Jazz. His price is rising quickly, but it’s not a concern yet and he is still the 12th highest priced PG tonight. Mack needs 36 DraftKings points to reach 6x value, a feat that he has accomplished in four straight games while averaging 39.5 DraftKings points per game in the process. Since coming over to the Jazz at the deadline, he’s logged 29.2 minutes per game in 14 games, which has crept up over 32 minutes per game in the last four. He is heavily involved in the offense, especially with Gordon Hayward sidelined. Hayward is questionable again today.
Bojan Bogdanovic ($5,200) is stroking it right now. He’s fired 44 shots over the last two games and why not?! He’s knocked down 27 of them! This has been a good run for Bogdanovic who has scored at least 25 DraftKings points in seven of ten games. You probably know he dropped a massive 44 real points on the Sixers on Tuesday night. That netted his owners 57.5 DraftKings points. He backed that game up with a 39.75 DK point performance against the Bulls on Thursday. He’s filling that Joe Johnson void in the offense so he’s logging big minutes. Already a streaky shooter, he’s worth investing in when hot.
The price on Carmelo Anthony ($8,400) always hovers right here in this range which always makes him slightly under-priced. Anthony has scored 40+ DraftKings points in seven of ten including two games of 50+ in his last six. You know exactly what you’re going to get from Carmelo which is about 20 shots per game, a handful of assists and handful of rebounds. He has a high ceiling, which he has flashed in both meetings with the Wizards this season. Anthony has scored 54.75 and 57.25 DraftKings points in their two meetings. The Knicks should be well-rested as they haven’t played since Wednesday night.
The last seven games have been a quiet emergence for Marvin Williams ($5,800). The Hornets power forward is averaging 33.1 DraftKings points per game in that span while stuffing the stat sheet. He’s score 19 real points per game in this stretch and he is a very capable rebounder. He’s playing just under 30 minutes a night and has flashed a high ceiling at times this season. Outside of a 46.25 DK point game on Tuesday, he dropped 52.25 on the Pacers about three weeks ago. He’s reasonably priced which makes him usable in all formats.
If you can afford him, find a way to roster Andre Drummond ($8,000). The big man leads the league in double-doubles which he is nearly a lock to accomplish every night. He is averaging 16.5 PPG and 15 RPG for the season and gets an excellent matchup tonight. If you’ve read this article for a week, you probably know how little I think of Brook Lopez as a defensive player. Drummond must feel the same way as he has shredded Lopez for 49.3 DraftKings PPG in their three meetings this season. He hasn’t scored less than 47.75 in any of those games which should give you plenty of confidence to deploy him tonight.
