NBA DFS: Guards
Donovan Mitchell, UTAH (@ PHX) Price: $7.8k DK, $7.9k FD
Donovan Mitchell has been one of the NBA’s most pleasant surprises this season. Although there are better overall guards available on Friday, the Utah Jazz rookie is an easy pick.
He’s going to be cheaper than the Russell Westbrooks, Kemba Walkers, Stephen Currys and Damian Lillards of the slate—yet he’s going up against a Phoenix Suns team that fails night after night to contain guards and plays at one of the league’s fastest paces.
Utah likes to slow it down, which makes Mitchell a bit of a gamble on any given night. But against the Suns, he’s a lock to draft.
Allen Crabbe, BKN (vs LAL) Price: $4.7k DK, $4.5 FD
Allen Crabbe is far from a guarantee to put up big numbers on Friday, but he’s worth a look if you’re considering a value pick in your backcourt.
Crabbe is coming off a 23.25 FPTS performance against the Philadelphia 76ers, and he’s slated to go up against as Los Angeles Lakers, who are just 25th when defending guards in DFS.
NBA DFS: Forwards
Carmelo Antony, OKC (vs NOLA) Price: $6.2k DK, $6.4k FD
It’s not often that we choose Carmelo Anthony as a player to highlight over teammates Russell Westbrook or Paul George, but on Friday night, he’s the only DFS player (DK) at the forward position who is averaging better than 30.2 FPTS per game who also costs less than $6.9k (with the only exception being the Questionable Nikola Mirotic).
Tim Hardaway Jr. is $3k cheaper with the same FPTS-per-game average, but Melo is coming off a performance in Denver where he watched fellow forward Paul George take over.
This next one belongs to Carmelo.
Al Horford, BOS (vs ATL) Price: $7.6k DK, $7.7k FD
Revenge game alert! Revenge game alert!
No, this isn’t a Horford-returns-to-ATL kinda game, but it is a contest against his former squad.
I his last two games against the Hawks, he’s posted seven points, six rebounds and six assists (pretty mundane), as well as 15 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
Horford is primed to put up a showing more like the latter than the former in this one.
NBA DFS: Centers
Joel Embiid, PHI (vs MIA) Price: $9.6k DK, $10.5k FD
Joel Embiid is going up against Hassan Whiteside on Friday, and while facing off vs. a stat-chasing big man \isn’t typically ideal in DFS, Embiid has a special place in his heart for the Miami Heat center.
This budding rivalry belongs to Embiid thus far, and considering he’s coming off a night’s rest, he’s an easy choice here.
- OUT: DeMarcus Cousins, NOLA, C, $3k [UPGRADES: Anthony Davis, Nikola Mirotic]
- OUT: Lonzo Ball, LAL, G, $6.8k [Jordan Clarkson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope]
One last thing. Remember… at the end of the day if you can’t afford to gamble online OR play at Draft Kings and Fan Duel then STOP. We know most DFS players need action, heck we do too, so just bet what you can afford.
Don’t go chasing money in high dollar GPP’s. Stick to cash games, and try to play on bigger slates. Avoid those night time 2 games slates. Your bankroll will thank us later.
