Top PG Picks:

Ja Morant – DK: ($7,400)

Morant went off against San Antonio two nights ago where he racked up 22 points, 14 assists, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals in 34 minutes of action. Tonight he will be taking on Golden State who is ranked 26th in the NBA against opposing PG’s. On top of that, Morant’s already played them twice this season and is averaging 38 fantasy points per game on DraftKings. Look for him to have a floor of 32 fantasy points tonight.

Terry Rozier – DK: ($7,100)

Rozier continued to score at a high level against Utah in his last outing despite the poor overall performance of Charlotte. Scary Terry has now scored at least 23 points in each of his last five games. He’s the most consistent producer on this Hornets team at the moment. Tonight he will take on Phoenix who is ranked 27th in the NBA against opposing PG’s. Look for Rozier to have a floor of 30 fantasy points tonight.

Ricky Rubio – DK: ($6,800)

I like Rubio tonight strictly for ownership purposes. He also hasn’t been very impressive over the past week when compared to his season averages. For those reasons I believe his ownership will be pretty low tonight which will be advantageous given the slate size. This will be the second time Rubio plays Charlotte this season. In the first match-up, Rubio racked up 39 fantasy points on DraftKings. He should have a floor of 30 fantasy points tonight.


Top SG Picks:

Devin Booker – DK: ($8,400)

Booker has no recorded at least 41 fantasy points on DraftKings in eight of his last ten games. Tonight he gets an exploitable match-up against Charlotte who is ranked 20th in the NBA against opposing SG’s. Booker has really amped up his production over the past week and a half so I’m going to continue to ride the hot streak. This is his second game against the Hornets this season and in the first bout he put up 37 fantasy points on DraftKings.

Lou Williams – DK: ($6,500)

Lou Williams has recorded at least 36 fantasy points on DraftKings in each of his last four games for Los Angeles. With Paul George already being ruled out for today’s game, Williams will once again take on a larger workload. Denver has a solid defense but with Williams coming off the bench, he has the advantage once again. Look for him to have a floor of 30 fantasy points on DraftKings tonight.

Damion Lee – DK: ($5,000)

Damion Lee is a solid value play for tonight’s slate due to his price dipping all of the way down to $5,000 on DraftKings. Lee recorded at least 26 fantasy points on DK in eight of his last ten games. His production has been leveling off but he is due for another big game soon. His match-up is against Memphis tonight who is ranked 28th in the NBA against opposing SG’s. Look for Lee to have a floor of 26 fantasy points tonight. His ceiling is in the upper 40’s – lower 50’s.

Top SF Picks:

Kawhi Leonard – DK: ($9,000)

Leonard exploded two nights ago against Golden State as he racked up 36 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block in 38 minutes of action. The injury to Paul George has allowed for Kawhi to see an increased usage rating. Tonight Leonard figures to be relied heavily on as Denver boasts one of the better defenses in the NBA. Nevertheless, Leonard has a very affordable price tag and he’s got a high floor of 45 fantasy points tonight.

Will Barton – DK: ($7,200)

Barton has recorded at least 31 fantasy points on DraftKings in eight of his last ten games. Tonight he has a very exploitable match-up against the Clippers who are ranked 23rd in the NBA against opposing SF’s. On top of that, they will be without Paul George once again tonight. This game has an implied total combined score of 220 points as listed on the DraftKings sportsbook. The spread is also at +1 for Denver. This is the perfect kind of match-up for a guy like Barton who fills up the stat sheet.

Kelly Oubre Jr. – DK: ($6,700)

Oubre has now recorded at least 36 fantasy points on DraftKings in seven of his last ten games. Tonight he is going up against Charlotte who is ranked 18th in the NBA against opposing SF’s. This will be his second match-up against the Hornets on the season. In the first bout, Oubre racked up 33.8 fantasy points in 37 minutes of action. His price is actually seeing a slight dip at the moment as well so I am going to take advantage of that.


Top PF Picks:

John Collins – DK: ($8,000)

That’s another solid performance for Collins as he just put up 15 points and 15 rebounds against Washington two nights ago. Tonight he has a solid match-up against Brooklyn who is ranked 21st in the NBA against opposing PF’s. Atlanta might be without their best player Trae Young tonight as he is questionable due to hamstring tightness. If Young misses this game, Collins will see a big increase in his usage rating. Atlanta will most likely rely heavily on Collins tonight for offensive production. Look for him to have a floor of 35 fantasy points.

Serge Ibaka – DK: ($7,800)

Ibaka is a great play at the PF position for tonight’s slate as he’s now recorded 34 fantasy points on DraftKings in each of his last seven games. Tonight he is taking on San Antonio and they are ranked 27th in the NBA against opposing PF’s. This should be a great match-up for Ibaka to record one of his staple double-doubles. The spurs have been getting into a lot of high scoring games recently and I expect this one to be the same way.

Omari Spellman – DK: ($4,100)

Spellman is a great value play as his price is just $4,100 on DraftKings tonight. He’s recorded 27 or more fantasy points in three out of his last four outings. As of right now, Spellman appears to be at the level of play we all expected Paschall to be at. Golden State also waived Marquese Chriss from their roster so he no longer is eating into Omari’s minutes. Look for him to have a floor of 20 fantasy points tonight. Don’t go all-in on this play, but definitely sprinkle him into some GPP lineups.


Top C Picks:

Deandre Ayton – DK: ($7,700)

Ayton has put up at least 31 points on DraftKings in each of his last five games now for the Suns. Tonight he gets one of the better match-ups on the slate against the Hornets. Defensively, Charlotte is ranked 28th in the NBA against opposing C’s. They have been bleeding fantasy points to this position all season long. Although Ayton has only played in eight games, he seems to be more comfortable on his home-court. Look for him to have a floor of 34 fantasy points tonight.

Montrezl Harrell – DK: ($6,100)

Harrell is another solid play at the C position for tonight’s slate as the Clippers get set to take on Denver without Paul George. He will likely see 30+ minutes tonight and that is ample time for him to put up a floor of 30 fantasy points. Harrell has put up at least 28 points on DraftKings in eight of his last ten games. Without George in the lineup, the Clippers are going to need scoring to come from somewhere else. Harrell, Leonard, and Williams are the most likely candidates to see increased numbers.

Jarrett Allen – DK: ($5,500)

Allen is a sneaky play tonight as his price is very affordable. There is no denying his production tailed off in a major way when compared to earlier in the season. Nevertheless, he gets a great match-up tonight against Atlanta who is ranked 24th in the NBA against opposing C’s. Going off that, Allen has played Atalanta twice already this season and is averaging a whopping 36 fantasy points per game against them. Look for Allen to have a floor of 32 fantasy points tonight. If he has a ceiling game tonight he will be a complete SMASH.
