DraftKings DFS Guards

Tomas Satoransky - PG, WAS vs ATL (DK - $5,600)

Satoransky has played 24 minutes or more in three of his last four games, which has led to him posting 20 or more fantasy points in those same three games. Solid production out of a player who isn't super expensive and now in a spot to continue that solid point per dollar production. He is up against the Hawks, who are giving up 52 DraftKings points per game to point guards this season, which is dead last in the league. This game has an over-under set at 233, so there should be plenty of scoring to go around tonight.

DeMar DeRozan - SG, SA @ SAC (DK - $7,500)

DeRozan still seems too cheap and has been under $8K for a few games now, so you should be looking to go right back to him tonight in a great matchup. He is facing off against the Kings, who are giving up 41 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards this season. DeRozan has played the Kings one time this season, where he was able to post 35 points in 26 minutes, which is the level of production we have seen from him all season. Great for all formats tonight as we should see the Spurs playing up in pace.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Giannis Antetokounmpo - SF, MIL @ BKN (DK - $10,900)

Any time the Greek Freak is on the slate, you should be looking to have some exposure to him, since he brings triple-double potential in almost every matchup. Speaking of triple-doubles, he is up against the Nets tonight, who he played one time this season and posted a triple-double. Yes, he was able to rack up 72 DraftKings points in 34 minutes, which is an insane level of production and not something you want to pass on. We have an over-under set at 227 points with the Bucks favored by seven points in this game, so not a ton of blowout potential, meaning full minutes for him.

Domantas Sabonis - PF, IND @ NO (DK - $5,500)

Sabonis is a player I've been on for a good portion of this season but has posted some lackluster games as of late. You should be willing to look past those recent faulters since he is still boasting 1.33 fantasy points per minute this season (when Oladipo is out). The Pelicans have been hit with the injury bug and have a thinned out frontcourt, so he should be able to stretch the floor tonight in a game where the spread is only one point.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Deandre Ayton - C, PHO @ HOU (DK - $6,800)

Ayton missed a few games but is now back and at a very reasonable price considering the ceiling of points he has shown throughout his rookie season. His ability to post consistent double-doubles makes him a viable fantasy option on most nights but should be extra interesting tonight since he is up against the Rockets who are giving up 57 DraftKings points per game to centers and finds himself in a game where the over-under is set at 229 points.
