Donovan Mitchell, UTAH (@ SAC) $7.9k DK
Donovan Mitchell is a high-usage player who’s going to shoot against anybody. Against the Sacramento Kings? He’s going to Shoot…Shoot…SHOOT!
Mitchell—last year’s Rookie of the Year runner-up—is going up against a defense that’s going to struggle and an opposing offense that’s going to push the pace behind point guard De’Aaron Fox. Both of those are signs that you can’t ignore at the guard position.
Jrue Holiday, NOP (@ HOU), $7.5k DK
The Houston Rockets weren’t as bad a defensive team last season as most made them out to be. In fact, they were downright average for stretches of the season.
Unfortunately for Houston, it replaced two defensive perimeter players with Carmelo Anthony this offseason. Jrue Holiday is going to benefit from playing a poor defense, extra possessions via pace, and the fact that he has a ton of momentum entering this season after last year’s playoff success.
Kawhi Leonard, TOR (vs CLE), $8k DK
Kawhi Leonard isn’t out to prove anybody wrong. That’s not his personality. At least…we don’t think it is. Actually, everything we thought we knew about the quietest most Spursian Spur to ever Spur was wrong.
What we do know, however, is that whether Kawhi is out for some sort of revenge tour or not, the Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t stopping anyone on defense this season, let alone a top-five player when healthy.
LaMarcus Aldridge, SAS (vs MIN), $7.3k DK
There are two reasons to pick LaMarcus Aldridge here, and they’re literally the two best reasons you can have.
He’s an underrated big man who is a clear-cut go-to scorer on offense while his newest star teammate gets used to the offense; and Karl-Anthony Towns isn’t stopping anybody all season.
You’ll hear us say that last part a lot in 2018-19. But for now, all we can say is: Draft Aldridge.
Marcin Gortat, LAC (@ BOS) $4.7k DK
If you’ve followed our advice up to this point (and why wouldn’t you have?), you’re in desperate need of a value pick.
Luckily for you, that wasn’t an accident by us.
If you’re feeling lucky, Mo Bamba might be an intriguing pick here at $4.7k considering his high upside. But he also has an atrociously low floor considering he’s playing in his first-ever NBA game…in a crowded front court…against a gritty Miami defense with a blocks-chasing center.
For the more conservative value pick, Marcin Gortat. His ceiling isn’t as high as Bamba’s but his floor is much higher. His opposing center, Nikola Jokic, is a wunderkind on offense who leaves a lot to be desired on the point-preventing end. Gortat should put together a solid performance many players in the low-to-mid $5k range would envy.
- OUT: Harrison Barnes, DAL, F [UPGRADES: Luka Doncic, Dennis Smith Jr.]
- OUT: John Collins, ATL, C [UPGRADES: Trae Young, Mario Hezojna]
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.
