After crushing yesterday’s DFS Cheat Sheet picks, we are back again to do the same thing. We find ourselves still in the grey area of knowing exact how usage rates. Playing time will be effected by recent buy outs and trade deadline additions. We now have more information at our disposal, however.
Top Value Picks:
*Terrance Mann — ($4,700) We’ve seen how well TM has been playing. and in a game that I think is a blowout, I still like him getting garbage time minutes and racking up points. I could easily see him taking advantage of this embarrassing Orlando team and putting up 35-40 DraftKings points.
*Deni Avdija — ($3,700) Coming off his second consecutive start, playing over 30 minutes, and performing very well I see Deni building on that. He has been up and down this year. I truly think he’s turning a corner and ready to become a consistent contributor to the team, though. At this price value its not hard to see him hitting 6x-7x value.
Top High Priced Options:
* Nikola Jokic — ($10,500) With Embiid out Jokic should have a field day with the 6ers defense. There are only 4 games tonight, so raw points are going to matter. If this game stays close and Joker gets his full minutes he could be the highest scorer of the night.
*Russell Westbrook — ($10,900) we are going back to the well after last night. If Bradley Beal is held out of this game against Charlotte I expect another large dose of Westbrook. Just like I said about Joker, Raw points will be a necessity in a night like this, and high usage Russ is always a good option in those circumstances.
Favorite Game Stack:
*Suns vs. Hawks — I love the idea of a game stack today, hence why I’m featuring it on my DFS Cheat Sheet. With only four games tonight you should be able to find salary relief places and save enough to go all out in this game, which should be the most predictable game of the night. The line is set at 222.5, which isn’t the highest of the night, but I think this game stays close, and goes over. I love a Paul, Booker, Young stack and if you have enough value guys you like you can also add a Collins to it, then stick with players around 4-5k to fill out the remaining spots.
