DraftKings DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, POR vs BKN (DK - $9,900)

Lillard has been going crazy since C.J. McCollum has been out with an injury these last three games and there are no signs he will be slowing down tonight. Lillard has posted 50 DraftKings points or more in three straight games, with two games being up 63 and 65 points. Those are some insane numbers and in large part due to him taking nine or more three-point attempts in each of these three games. Tonight, he is facing off against the Nets who are allowing 45 DraftKings points per game to point guards this season, which is actually 11th best in the league. It's certainly not the easiest matchup on paper, but he sees am 8.4% increase in his usage when McCollum is off the court, so look towards that being a better indicator rather than a slightly tougher matchup.

Delon Wright - SG, MEM vs OKC (DK - $5,300)

Wright is very affordable tonight and with only four games on the slate, we need to find a bit of saving everywhere we can, making him a great option. The Grizzlies are hit with a ton of injuries right now and also aren't very good, so plenty of different players are getting playing time. He comes in with 27 minutes or more in three straight games but has posted under one fantasy point per minute in two of those games. That isn't great, but it's also not a massive deal since he is on the cheaper side of things and we really only need about 26 fantasy points from him in order to reach salary base value.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Joe Harris - SF, BKN @ POR (DK - $4,900)

Harris is always in play for GPPs since he brings tremendous three-point ability, he is the three-point champion after all. He comes in attempting six or more three-point shots in three of his last five games, hitting at least three of them in those three games. The matchup also brings a nice spot to attack since he is up against the Trail Blazers who are allowing 41 DraftKings points per game to small forward, which is the ninth most in the league this season. We have an over-under set at 225 points tonight, so plenty of scoring to go around and a nice spot for a game stack.

Aaron Gordon - PF, ORL vs PHI (DK - $7,000)

The Magic are just one game out of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, which is great to see since they usually aren't playing meaningful games at this time of the season. We should see the Magic playing up in pace against the 76ers tonight where the over-under is set at 219 points, with Philly only favored by two points. We are in for a great game tonight, but also a great spot for Gordon, since the 76ers are allowing 49 DraftKings points per game to power forwards this season, which is the sixth most in the league. He isn't a value play by any means, but he also isn't super expensive, which often sees him go overlooked in tournaments.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Rudy Gobert - C, UTA vs PHO (DK - $8,000)

Let me say this, for his price tonight, Gobert should be one of the most popular players on the entire slate tonight regardless of position. He is facing off against the Suns tonight, who simply cannot guard centers this season which is shown by the fact he has played them twice this season, posting an average of 47 DraftKings points in 32 minutes. That falls above his season average of 1.26 fantasy points per minute, probably making him too cheap tonight. Get him in cash games, get him in tournaments, get him anywhere tonight.
