DraftKings DFS Guards

Zach LaVine - PG/SG, CHI v. MEM ($8,000)

In the five games since being called out by head coach Jim Boylen due to "lack of effort", LaVine has averaged 31.8 points, 3.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game. This is good for an average of 46.85 DraftKings fantasy points per game over the same span. LaVine faces a visiting Memphis Grizzlies team without their star rookie JA Morant (back). The Grizzlies are ranked in the bottom-10 in fast break points, total points, threes and field-goal percentage against opposing guards. LaVine himself dropped 37 points against Memphis earlier this season.

Devonte' Graham - PG/SG, CHA v. GSW ($7,700)

After a 15-point, 14-assist performance Monday, Graham has accumulated seven double-doubles this season. This is already seven more than his rookie season last year. Head Coach James Borrego thrusted Graham into the starting lineup and will most likely stick with his young guard for the remainder of the year. Graham faces the Golden State Warriors at home. The Warriors have a higher pace and have given up 116.5 points per game on the road this season. Look for Graham to repeat his recent success as a starter.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Domantas Sabonis - PF/C, IND @ OKC ($8,300)

The departure of former teammate Thaddeus Young has allowed Sabonis to make another improvement  in his career this season. Sabonis has put up career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks so far this season. Sabonis and the Pacers travel to Oklahoma City to face a Thunder team who currently give up the third-most fantasy points to opposing big men. Sabonis will most likely be matched up against Danillo Gallinari who is in the midst of his second-worst defensive rating in his career. Steven Adams has also been playing further away from the basket this year which should draw out Myles Turner on defense. There will be plenty of rebounds for Sabonis to scoop up.

Jaren Jackson Jr. - PF/C, MEM @ CHI ($6,800)

Jackson is coming off a season-best 31 points after combining for just 21 in the two games prior. With Brandon Clarke (oblique) already out and both Jonas Valanciunas (illness) and Kyle Anderson (heel), Jackson will likely have to carry the load again. Chicago is currently allowing the most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing power forwards this season. Jackson is always a high-risk, high-reward option due to his inability to stay out of foul trouble. Proceed with caution, but if Valanciunas and Anderson are both unable to go, there should be a lot of Jackson on offense.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Karl-Anthony Towns - C, MIN @ DAL ($10,600)

Towns and the Timberwolves are facing one of the hottest teams in the league and one of the best against opposing centers in the Dallas Mavericks. However, Dallas is on the second leg of a back-to-back. Their defensive anchor, Kristaps Porzingis, will likely be rested due to his injury recovery. Porzingis has only sat out one game this year, but in that game opposing big man Jaren Jackson Jr. dropped 24 points in 29 minutes. This game also has the highest over/under in total points on the night. Towns should dominate the paint in this high-scoring affair.
