DraftKings DFS Guards

James Harden - PG/SG, HOU @ NO ($10,700)

James Harden is currently on fire and I have no interest in fading him. He put up 44 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists against the Nets last night and will likely look to repeat here. He’ll have every chance to against the fast-paced Pelicans that don’t play defense and certainly don’t protect the rim. Harden is going to cost you a pretty penny on DraftKings, but he’s worth all of it if he can once again finish around 80 fantasy points.

Cody Martin - SG/SF, CHA @ MEM ($3,300)

Cody Martin May not get much attention tonight, but he’s extremely cheap on DraftKings and has been getting consistent minutes. Martin has been over 20 minutes in eight straight games and has eclipsed 24 fantasy points in all but two of them. Martin gets involved when on the floor and has stuffed the stat sheet repeatedly. The Memphis Grizzlies play at a fast pace and we’ll want to keep an eye on a few of these Hornets.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Brandon Ingram - SF/PF, NO vs. HOU ($8,100)

The Pelicans match-up with the Houston Rockets and I love pairing Harden with Brandon Ingram. He’s a match-up proof scorer at this point and he has 60-fantasy point upside against anyone. The Rockets will match the Pelicans pace and Ingram will shoot the ball 20+ times. His price is down on DraftKings and I love him in all formats.

Miles Bridges - SF/PF, CHA @ MEM ($4,500)

Another Hornets option that I love is Miles Bridges. The Grizzlies play at a top-5 pace and the Hornets are going to find a few extra possessions in turn. Bridges has played 30 minutes in every game and his 21% usage rate has been impressive. The Grizzlies don’t match-up well with athletic forwards and I expect Bridges to find himself over 30 fantasy points here. His price is far too low on DK.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, DEN vs. SAC ($9,100)

Jokic is back to his usual self and he gets another great match-up with the Sacramento Kings. Neither Richaun Holmes nor Dewayne Dedmon have a chance to slow down Jokic and he’s coming off an impressive triple-double in a game that he posted a 35% usage. I look for the trend to continue and for the price on Jokic to continue building. Let’s take advantage against a weak Kings squad.
