DraftKings DFS Guards

Tyler Ulis - PG, vs NO ($5,900)

Ulis has been playing bigger minutes with Elfrid Payton injured. That will continue tonight, and Ulis has been playing at a high level recently. Over his last five games, he is averaging 16.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.0 steal in 36.3 minutes per game. He gets a great matchup against a fast paced Pelicans team, and Ulis is an option that can be considered in all leagues tonight.

Tyler Dorsey - PG/SG, at WAS ($3,900)

Dorsey has seen an extended role in the Hawks rotation because of the injury to Dennis Schroder. Over his last three games, he is averaging 28.1 fantasy points in 28.7 minutes per game. He is a solid scorer, who can add rebounds, assists, and steals on a nightly basis. He also gets a solid matchup against the Washington Wizards tonight, and Dorsey is a great salary relief option in all leagues.

Other DraftKings DFS Guards to Consider: JJ Redick, Isaiah Taylor, Trey Burke, Josh Jackson, Victor Oladipo


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Dario Saric - PF/C, vs CLE ($6,700)

Saric was recently dealing with an injury, but he is expected to start and play big minutes tonight. In his last game without Joel Embiid, Saric scored 56.5 fantasy points in 36 minutes of action. He should see big minutes with a bigger role because of Embiid's injury. Saric is having elbow problem's, which adds to his risk, but he's cheap enough to be considered in all leagues.

Kyle O'Quinn - PF/C, vs MIA ($5,700)

Enes Kanter has been injured, which has allowed O'Quinn to play bigger minutes. In his last two games, he is averaging 35.9 fantasy points in 30.5 minutes per game. He is expected to see similar minutes again tonight, and he is averaging nearly 1.0 fantasy point per minute against the Miami Heat this season. Q'Quinn is averaging 1.16 fantasy points per minute this season, and he is a great option in all leagues tonight.

Other DraftKings DFS Forwards to Consider: Ben Simmons, Julius Randle, LeBron James, Michael Beasley, Robert Covington

DraftKings DFS Centers

Nikola Vuecvic - C, vs CHA ($7,700)

Vucevic has quietly been playing well recently, averaging 14.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.5 blocks in 28.2 minutes per game over the last 10 days. Vucevic has also scored 40+ fantasy points in four of his last five games. He gets a tough matchup against the Charlotte Hornets, who Vucevic has performed well against this season. Vucevic can be used in all leagues tonight.

Other DraftKings DFS Centers to Consider: Karl-Anthony Towns, Dewayne Dedmon, Marquese Chriss
