NBA DFS: Guards
Lou Williams, LAC [@ SAC] (DK: $8.3k, FD: $8.9k)
Lou Williams has been a machine this season. That’s not going to change against the lowly Sacramento Kings.
Wednesday night, Williams went off for 50 points with 40 of that coming in the first three quarters. And that was against the defending champion Golden State Warriors.
This game should see a ton of points scored, and a good portion of them are going to come from this guy right here.
Dwyane Wade, CLE [@ TOR] (DK: $4.8k, FD: $5.4k)
Dwyane Wade always has a low floor considering his age and role on the Cleveland Cavaliers, but against Toronto, he should prove to be a strong value play. In three out of his last four contests, he’s recorded between 27.5 and 32.75 FPTS on DraftKings. Toronto is 12th in the NBA against guards, but while they’re just outside the top 10, they’ll be more focused on Isiah Thomas and LeBron James in this one.
NBA DFS: Forwards
DeMar DeRozan, TOR [vs CLE] (DK: $8.8k, FD: $9.6k)
The Cleveland Cavaliers can’t figure out how to play defense this season, and that’s a very, very good sign for the Toronto Raptors and DeMar DeRozan.
The question here isn’t about whether or not DeRozan is going to score—he is. The question is whether or not he’ll do it efficiently. If he does, even his high cost will prove to be one of the better values of the Thursday slate.
Davis Bertans, SAS [@LAL] (DK: $4.5k, FD: $4.5k)
If you want to look absolutely brilliant in Thursday night DFS, Davis Bertans is your guy.
Bertans really is the next great Spurs role player. He’s a “pop” player through and through, and more importantly, he’s producing.
In his last outing, the 25-year-old score 28 points and 39.5 FPTS. Although matching 28 points doesn’t seem likely, he has a chance to really rack up the FPTS against the Lakers, who are just 29th in terms of defending forwards.
NBA DFS: Centers
LaMarcus Aldridge, SAS [@ LAL] (DK: $8.5k, FD: $9.9k)
If your lineup can afford to place some exposure on centers, utilizing LaMarcus Aldridge’s PF/C status is the move. He’s either going to be up against a slower Brook Lopez or the younger, less crafty Julius Randle, Kyle Kuzma, Larry Nance Jr.s of the opposing roster.
LMA is averaging 52.75 FPTS in his last two outings, and there’s little reason to believe he’ll slow down against the defensively inept Lakers.
Brook Lopez, LAL [vs SAS] (DK: $4.5k, FD: $4.4k)
Lopez is going to struggle defensively against Aldridge. But if you’ve got your money locked up in high-priced players on a three-game slate, this center screams value.
His ability to spread the floor makes him a threat for those extra three-pointer points at a position you wouldn’t expect. In his last outing he went 5-of-8 from deep, and he’s 17-of-27 (44.4 percent) over the past 10 days.

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.
