DraftKings DFS Guards

Isaiah Thomas - PG, WAS @ LAL ($4,200)

As our first option value option of the night, there isn't going to be a cheaper play with more upside. Isaiah Thomas is headed towards fantasy relevancy and his ability to score in bunches makes this is an even more rewarding situation. The Wizards are going to have to keep giving Thomas significant minutes, not to mention that they need any production they can get. If you don't like the idea of playing Thomas tonight, check out Shaquille Harrison as another cheap play with plenty of upside.

Tomas Satoransky - PG/SG, CHI @ POR ($4,900)

Since Tomas Satoransky is fairly good at filling the stat sheet, it almost seems necessary to play him when the matchup is this good. Coby White will eventually find his way into the starting lineup, but until then and until the Bulls start playing stingier defenses, Satoransky has a chance to be a great value play without breaking the bank. Specifically against Portland, Satoransky has a chance to right the ship after seeming like he has been slipping recently. He is listes as probably but as long as he can hit his shots he should be wholly more productive versus the Trail Blazers this time around.

DraftKings DFS Forwards

T.J. Warren - SF/PF, IND v. ATL ($5,400)

Given T.J. Warren's upside this price isn't actually all that bad. Warren tends to be one of those guys taht if he get's rolling, he is going to be the Pacers top scorer. They have been spreading the wealth and have not had a shortage of scoring, but that doesn't mean Warren isn't due for a big game against a very suspect defense. Last outing, Jabari Parker went bananas for the Hawks and while it's possible it happens again, look for someone like Warren to take it upon himself to keep up with the scoring of the Hawks. Even if he isn't making as many shots as he needs to be, he'll be taking more than enough attempts.

Meyers Leonard - PF/C, MIA vs. GS ($3,100)

I struck gold playing Kelly Olynyk on his best game of the season so let's see if lightning strikes twice with Meyers Leonard. Since he, arguably, should be one of the more dominant centers based of pure aesthetics, it almost seems obvious to play him against the Warriors. They lack a true center to keep players out of the paint and you can't get much bigger than Leonard. He hasn't been a bright spot for production this season but anyway who has watched Leonard at any point in his career knows that Leonard's production comes without warning. He will simply knock down multiple three's in one game, grabbing double-digit rebounds, while going scoreless his next five outing. It's a risk, but wood-ja-look-at-that-price?!

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Ivica Zubac - C, LAC @ SA ($4,000)

As a fairly cheap and consistent center option, Ivica Zubac has been doing exactly what's necessary to earn a starting spot but not necessarily 30 minutes a game. The Clippers frontcourt is fairly small and they don't need these massive rotational minutes from them, but that doesn't really curb Zubac's overall upside against San Antonio. They lack a true center and while Jakob Poetlt isn't terrible, he doesn't really possess the size to keep someone like Zubac from producing even with limited minutes.
