DraftKings DFS Guards

Trae Young - PG, ATL vs. WAS ($9,500)

Young draws a dream matchup tonight against a Washington Wizards team that plays fast and doesn’t play much defense. On the season, the Wizards rank dead last in defensive efficiency with a 115.6. They rank 29th against the point guard position with two of the worst defenders in Ish Smith and Isaiah Thomas manning the position. Young played 33 minutes in his return from injury last game, and should be good to go for 34+ tonight. Young is an obvious play in all formats, but I do think you’re working behind the eight-ball if you plan on fading him anywhere. This game has an astounding 240 over/under, so don’t hesitate to get exposure with at least three or four guys.

Devin Booker - SG, MEM @ PHO ($8,100)

Booker is way too cheap on DraftKings, and the matchup with Memphis is a phenomenal one. The Grizzlies play at the third-fastest pace (103.4) in the league, and they struggle mightily against ball-handlers that can score. Booker has seen his usage increase to 29% on the season, and he has had the ball in his hands on virtually every possession at this point. His minutes are extremely safe at this point, and he’s logged over 38 minutes in three of his last four games. Booker dropped 40 points and 50 fantasy points against the Grizzlies a couple weeks ago and will look to repeat tonight.

Mikal Bridges - SG/SF, PHO @ MEM ($3,900)

It’s hard not to look at Bridges at this price. He’s under $4k, and you’re looking at around 20-25 fantasy points in cash games. Bridges was excellent when Kelly Oubre was out with a concussion, and his minutes have continued over 30 even with him back. Bridges stuff the stat sheet when on the floor, and Booker has no problem getting him involved. The matchup against Memphis is a fast-paced one, and Bridges is a guy that derives his upside from peripherals.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Brandon Ingram - SF, NO vs. BOS ($7,700)

Ingram is another guy that is just too cheap here on DraftKings. There are some obvious pricing errors over on DK, and Ingram may be the most gleaming. At only $7,700, Ingram will face off with the Boston Celtics at home in New Orleans. I expect this game to stay close throughout, and we’re looking at a monster 228 over/under. Ingram will be covered by Gordon Hayward and Jayson Tatum--if he is in the game--and I don’t have confidence in either slowing down Ingram. He’s going to shoot the ball 20+ times here, and the price is just too low on DraftKings.

Julius Randle - PF, NY vs. BKN ($7,600)

Randle is very affordable on DraftKings, and I love the matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. This may not be the fastest game on the slate, but the individual matchup for Randle is a good one. I fully expect him to be under 15% owned, and Randle has flown under the radar as one of the most consistent forwards in basketball of late. Since returning from injury, Randle has been over 35 fantasy points in seven straight games. The Nets rank 26th against the power forward position, and I fully expect Randle to surpass 40 fantasy points here.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Myles Turner - C, IND @ POR ($4,900)

I feel like a broken record, but we have another guy that’s mispriced on DraftKings in Turner. Facing off with Portland and Hassan Whiteside, Turner will be there for 32+ minutes as a minimum. He doesn’t have the highest usage %, but the big man does an excellent job of getting involved more when Malcolm Brogdon is out. He also has immense upside as he can go for 50 fantasy points on any given day. Turner is an elite play, and I’m comfortable with him in all formats on DraftKings.
