NBA STARS & SCRUBS
Draftkings Salaries listed first. Fanduel Salaries are second.
Malcolm Brogdon (7,000) (6,800)
Pace up spot ainst MIN. Rematch of their last game. Brogdon went for 37 fpts 2 days ago vs MIN. That was 5.5x DK value.ONot really what was expected of him considering the spot he was in. But you can’t look past how MIN is allowing the most real points to the PG position. Brogdon is averaging 18 pts per game as well as 5 3 pt attempts per game and MN allows the 6th most 3 point attempts to the PG position. If Brogdon can hit a few 3’s and get a few more than his aerage points and the average of the peripheral stats he should be able to hit value.
DeAnthony Melton (4,700) (4,900)
me could be a game stack. Both teams are in the bottom 10 of Defensive Rating. CLE is ranked the 2nd worst Defensive team in the league, and MEM is ranked the 9th worse. Melton coming off the bench sees most the usage on that unit. He is coming off 3 straight games of hitting 6x value at his price today. Facing a weak CLE team he should have no problem continuing that streak.
Shabaz Napier (5,000) (5,000)
Teague is no longer in the picture in MIN. He has been avera\ging roughly 18+ mins per game recently. I expect Napier to eat up most of those minutes. His production has slowed down significantly since Teague and Wiggins came back from being out. Teague is no longer in the picture, but Wiggins is. Napier is currently being listed as the highest projected owned player on the slate at 34%. He does have a fairly tough matchup facing INDY who is ranked 9th best in the league in DEF rating. They are allowing 47 fpts/gm to the PG position so if Napier can see 30+ minutes tonight, He can come close or maybe get you more than 6x value. On the season he is a .96 fpt/min player. Over the last 5 games though this has decreased down to .70.
Other Guards I like – (Kyle Lowry, Ja Morant, Patty Mills)
Domantis Sabonis (8,600) (9,000)
Pricey, but well worth it. Coming off a 58 fpt/gm vs MIN just 2 days ago. Just can’t stop this guy. Having an amazing year all around. Averaging over 6x value in the last 5 games. Even though he is 400$ more on FD, don’t let that scare you away from playing him on that site. He only eats up 15% of your salary on FD compared to 17% on DK. On tonigh’ts slate I think I’d rather pay up for my PFs and C and ge the value in the gd positions.
Jae Crowder (4,600) (4,900)
Listed a\s questionable as of right now. If he suits up, I love him in tonights matchup. Not only is he in a great spot facing CLE allowing the 6th most fpts to the SF position.. you could also throw in the revenge narrative in with it too. He has been playing great lately. One of my projection models actually has him at close to 9x value on the night. I just can’t overlook that.
Other Forwards I like (DeAndre Hunter, Rudy Gay, Pascal Siakam )
Marc Gasol (4,800) (5,000)
Just too cheap. It’s as simple as that. Facing a team allowing the 4th most FPTS to C’s.. Coming off a game he hit 7x. As long as he gets the minutes hes crushing value all day long here.
