DraftKings DFS Guards

LeBron James - PG/SF, LAL @ NOP ($11,500)

It goes without saying James has been absolutely masterful in his 17th season of his career. The addition of Anthony Davis has gone a long way for James who is averaging a career-high in assists (11.0 per game). James is on the road again and although he has a better player rating at home, he averages more points, rebounds and assists on the road. Their opponent Wednesday, the New Orleans Pelicans, have been porous on defense this year. James faces a Pelicans squad who gives up the most fastbreak points, the second-most points in the paint, and is the fourth-worst ranked defense this year. James, a nightly triple-double threat, should have no issues dominating on offense.

Damian Lillard - PG, POR v. OKC ($8,600)

Lillard is due for a big game. After returning from a two-game absence with a minor back injury, Lillard has shot just 35.5 percent from the field for an average of 18.0 points per game, well below his season average of 27.3 points. After a six-game road trip, Lillard and Portland finally return home where Lillard has put up averages of 32.8 points, 7.6 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game this year. Not to mention, they host the Oklahoma City Thunder who are 1-6 on the road the season, their only win coming against the depleted Golden State Warriors. If that isn't enough to convince you, the Thunder give up the eighth-most points to opposing guards this season. All signs post to a scoring outburst for Lillard.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Pascal Siakam - PF/C, TOR v. NY ($8,900)

Siakam is quietly leading a Toronto Raptors squad without Kawhi Leonard (free agency), Kyle Lowry (thumb) and Serge Ibaka (ankle) to a 12-4 record and tied for second in the Eastern Conference. Siakam could easily win another most-improved play of the year award which goes to show how incredible he has played this season. Siakam and the Raptors are hosting the last-place New York Knicks on Wednesday. The Knicks have given up the fourth-most DraftKings fantasy points and the fifth-most overall points to opposing forwards this season. Fire up Siakam across all formats.

Jimmy Butler - SG/SF, MIA @ HOU ($8,000)

Butler has expressed multiple times how much he is enjoying his new threads with the Miami Heat and he's shown that through his play, especially on the defensive end. Butler has not shot great this season as he adjusts to his new team, but he is averaging a career high 6.2 assists and career-high 2.6 steals per game. Butler faces the Houston Rockets again who have given up the second-most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing guards. In their first meeting, Butler posted a near triple-double of 18 points, nine assists, seven rebounds, four steals and a block in their blowout win. You have to figure with the Rockets at home, the game should be more competitive which will give Butler more opportunities to stuff the stat sheet.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, DET v. CHA ($9,400)

Drummond has been a force in the paint so far, recording a double-double in all put two games this year. Drummond and the Pistons face the Charlotte Hornets and a banged-up Cody Zeller (hip). Coming into Wednesday, Charlotte gives up the most points in the paint to opposing centers this season. They are also giving up the second-most fantasy points and fifth-most points off turnovers to opposing centers. These stats coupled with the fact Drummond has a plus-9.2 rating at home shows Drummond is an elite center option Wednesday.
