DraftKings DFS Guards

Spencer Dinwiddie - PG, BKN vs DET (DK - $6,000)

Dinwiddie is playing great as of right now and has posted 44 or more DraftKings points in each of his last two and a 30 point game prior to that. Strong production from a player who is only $6K and has attempted 35 shots in his last two games. Tonight, he is up against the Pistons and in a spot to continue this recent success, since they are allowing 43 DraftKings points per game to point guards this season. He has been playing off the bench recently, but each of the last two games has seen him play 30 minutes, which isn't out of the question tonight since we have a spread of only two points. This sets up for a very closely contested game with two teams who are right next to each other in the standings and fighting for a playoff spot.

Donovan Mitchell - SG, UTA vs OKC (DK - $8,400)

Spida is coming off a massive 53 DK point game and his price hasn't changed at all. You should be very interested in Mitchell tonight since Ricky Rubio has already been ruled out for this game, which means Mitchell will continue to carry a 39% usage rate while producing 1.35 fantasy points per minute. That is amazing production and naturally brings a bit of value since he is still under $9K in a favorable matchup versus the Thunder who are allowing 43 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards this season, which is the sixth most in the league.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kawhi Leonard - SF, TOR @ CLE (DK - $8,600)

Leonard and the Raptors are on the second night of a back to back, but he didn't play yesterday due to load management, so he should be good to go today. It should be noted that this is the cheapest he's been in his last 10 games and has posted 36 DraftKings points or more in each game on this side of the All-Star break. The Raptors come in as 10-point road favorites against the Cavaliers, so there is a bit of blowout risk here, but with him producing 1.33 fantasy points per minute this season, he should have no issues reaching value tonight.

Nemanja Bjelica - PF, SAC @ WAS (DK - $4,200)

Everything looks great for the Kings versus Wizards game and should be very popular when it comes to DFS tonight. First off, we have an over-under 241 points, which is the highest on the slate, naturally bringing plenty of ownership, combined with the fact the spread is only two points in favor of the Wizards. This all sets up for a fantastic fantasy environment where Bjelica should be able to continue his recent production since the Wizards are allowing a staggering 51 DraftKings points per game to power forwards this season, which is the most in the league. He has posted 22 DK points or more in two of his last three games while playing 29 minutes or more in his most recent two games. He is very cheap tonight, has a super soft matchup, in a game with a super high over-under.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Al Horford - C, BOS @ LAC (DK - $6,600)

Horford generally isn't the most exciting player to roster in NBA DFS, but he is consistent and is never too expensive, both of which are true tonight. He is facing off against the Clippers who are allowing a whopping 62 DraftKings points per game to opposing centers which are the most in the league this season. He isn't known for having a massive ceiling of points, but that could be changing tonight since the matchup is super soft and we have a spread of -1.5 points tonight, meaning he should be playing full minutes.
