DraftKings DFS Guards

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - PG/SG, OKC @ NO ($6,600)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has struggled of late and I like him to turn things around in a big way here. The Pelicans play faster than anyone in the league and the Thunder are going to see a bunch more possessions in turn. SGA is still getting over 30 minutes in every game and all it takes is one hot streak and he’s back over 40 fantasy points. If there’s any match-up for SGA to get off the schneid, this is the one.

Markelle Fultz - PG/SG, ORL vs. GS ($5,300)

Fultz is showing the world that it was way too early to give up on him. He’s putting up 25-30 fantasy points every night and doing so on just 28 minutes per night. This match-up against Golden State is a great one and Fultz is going to have success when on the floor here. His price is low on DraftKings and he won’t be very popular, even with just four games. Fultz is a top option in both cash games and tournaments at just over $5k.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Rudy Gay - SF/PF, SA @ DET ($4,900)

With LaMarcus Aldridge out, Rudy Gay is going to play at least 28 minutes and you can lock him in for value. The Pistons don’t play at the fastest pace, but they don’t play great defense and the Spurs will put up 110 points. Gay is never afraid to shoot and with LMA’s shots gone, I look for Rudy Gay to shoot 10-15 times and at his price, an ultra lock in your cash games and tournaments.

Brandon Ingram - SF/PF, NO vs, OKC ($9,200)

The price on Ingram is obviously high, but he’s paying it off over and over and it’s hard to keep writing him off. On a small slate without a ton of value, fading Ingram could be the death of you. If he puts up 45+ fantasy points, which he’s very capable of against the likes of Gallinari and Ferguson. The Pelicans have been running the offense through Ingram and his consistency is impressive to say the least. If you can afford to pay up for Ingram, you certainly should.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Trey Lyles - PF/C, SA @ DET ($3,500)

With Aldridge out, Trey Lyles has a floor of 25 minutes with a ceiling in the 30’s. He’s always productive when on the floor and seems to shoot more than ever with this Spurs team. He’s been at a fantasy point per minute this season, so a lock for value seems like an understatement at just $3.5k on DraftKings.
