James Harden (vs PHO), $11.5. DK, $11.3k FD
James Harden is one player you can’t afford to fade on Friday. He’s going up against a Phoenix Suns squad that is notorious for creating extra possessions with their pace and taking entire possessions off defensively, and if Chris Paul isn’t able to play (he’s currently listed as questionable), Harden will be even more of a focal point in the offense than he already is. (Which is a ton, by the way.)
Markelle Fultz, PHI (@ ATL) $4.1k DK, $4.6k FD
Markelle Fultz is going to have extra scoring opportunities with Joel Embiid sidelined, but that’s not why you should draft him. He’s already proved in two games back that he can impact a box score in many areas.
For instance, in his last outing against the New York Knicks, he scored just three points but managed to record 23.75 FPTS.
Against a tanking Atlanta Hawks squad, he should have a similar outing.
Robert Covington, PHI (@ ATL), $5.9k DK, $6.0k FD
Robert Covington’s value should easily exceed his cost on Friday as a result of Joel Embiid being sidelined with a facial fracture. The forward is averaging 33.2 FPTS per night over his last three, and in this one, he’s going up against a Hawks squad that is dead last at defending his position this season.
Paul George, OKC (vs DEN), $8.1k DK, $7.7k FD
Although you may be tempted to take Carmelo Anthony here because this is a classic “revenge game” against a former team, Melo is averaging just 14 points per game against the Nuggets this season and isn’t impacting the box score in many other areas. If you can find a good value player at center, Paul George becomes a great option here.
Richaun Holmes, PHI (@ ATL) $4.2k DK, $3.8k FD
Speaking of value picks at the center position…
Richaun Holmes has been excellent this year whenever Joel Embiid has sat. On Wednesday, a game in which Embiid played a good portion before going down, Holmes stepped in and posted 15 points and seven rebounds in just 22 minutes.
The Hawks are 21st in defending centers this season, which, combined with Holmes’ extremely low cost, makes him the ideal pick at this position.
- Joel Embiid, C, PHI (OUT) [UPGRADES: Richaun Holmes, Robert Covington]
- Chris Paul, G, HOU (QST) [UPGRADES: James Harden, Eric Gordon]
- Kevin Love, F/C, CLE (OUT) [UPGRADES: Larry Nance Jr]
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.
