DraftKings DFS Guards

Patrick Beverley - PG, LAC vs ATL (DK - $4,500)

Beverly is coming off a very impressive game where he posted 47 DraftKings points in just 36 minutes versus the Kings. He is in a spot to repeat that level of production since he is facing off against the Hawks, who decided they aren't going to be playing any defense this season, so they are a perfect team to attack. Beverley is averaging 0.78 fantasy points per minute this season, which is modest, but he is under $5K which is a nice salary on this smaller slate.

Shabazz Napier - SG, BKN vs BOS (DK - $4,600)

With Dinwiddie out and Joe Harris listed as questionable for this game, Napier is in a spot to see some extra minutes. He comes in at a very reasonable price tag, which isn't something that should be overlooked on a slate this small. He posted 25 points in 28 minutes in his most recent game and despite Boston being 10th in defensive efficiency versus shooting guards, he can still produce on a point per dollar basis.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Domantas Sabonis - PF, IND vs GS (DK - $6,600)

Sabonis comes in with a 24.4% usage rate along with producing 1.37 fantasy points per minute this season, which should only be on the rise since the Pacers have lost Victor Oladipo for the rest of the season. Simply put, Sabonis is productive every time he is on the court this season and comes in with some very solid double-double upside. We have an over-under set at 225 points versus the Warriors here, so we should be in for plenty of scoring, which creates a fantastic fantasy environment.

Jeremy Lamb - SF, CHA vs NY (DK - $5,600)

Lamb is never the most exciting player to roster in NBA DFS, but he is cheap and produces just enough to make him worth the spot. We have a very small slate, so if you are looking to load up on the star players, you will need to have some mid-tier options in your player pool. Lamb is playing over 26 minutes in eight of his last 10 games and should be in for similar minutes tonight against the Knicks in a game with an over-under set at 217 points.


DraftKings DFS Centers

DeMarcus Cousins - C, GS @ IND (DK - $6,500)

Cousins is still only $6.5K tonight and is far cheaper than we have ever seen him in the past few seasons. Since returning from his injury, he has produced over one fantasy point per minute in each of his four games, along with playing over 21 minutes in his last three. The matchup tonight is solid for him to continue this production since he is up against the Pacers, who are giving up 53 DraftKings points per game to centers this season.
