NBA DFS: Guards
Russell Westbrook, OKC [vs POR] (DK: $11.5k, FD: $11.8k)
Russell Westbrook is always going to be a popular play, but as good as he is, the cost to draft him isn’t always worth it. Against Portland, it 100 percent will be. The Blazers are a vastly improved defensive team this season, but with Damian Lillard sitting, Westbrook should have a field day against the 6’1″, 175-pound Shabazz Napier.
Shabazz Napier, POR [@OKC] (DK: $5.4k, FD: $4.8k)
DraftKings is starting to figure out that Shabazz Napier has been incredible value when Damian Lillard sits, but at $5,400, he still has tremendous upside. In his last outing, he tallied 15 points, seven assists and five rebounds (plus a whole lot of miscellaneous stats) for a total of 36.75 FPTS. Due to Portland’s lack of depth at the point guard spot, Napier’s usage is extremely high when Lillard is sidelined.
NBA DFS: Forwards
Harrison Barnes, DAL [@ ORL] (DK: $7k, FD: $6.8k)
Harrison Barnes’ cost continues to rise, but so does his production. In his last four contests, he’s posted 35.5, 32.75, 39.75 and 38.25 FPTS, respectively. Against Orlando, Barnes is a safe play. The Magic are just 26th in the NBA against small forwards, and out of the four games on the evening’s slate, this one has the highest over/under (214) by 3.5 points.
Zach Randolph, SAC [@LAL] (DK: $6.3k, FD: $5.5k)
Zach Randolph isn’t exactly in his prime, but he continues to be a solid DFS selection when the mathchup is right.
Against the Lakers, Randolph will struggle to keep up defensively with young bigs like Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle on the other side, but his craftiness on offense and aptitude on the boards makes him a strong pick.
In his last outing, he went for 24 points and 10 rebounds, totalling 37.5 FPTS.
Although the Kings-Lakers matchup doesn’t have the highest over/under of the night, it does have the second-highest at 211, while the other two contests are sitting on 205.
NBA DFS: Centers
Bismack Biyombo, ORL [vs DAL] (DK: $5.8k, FD: $5.6k)
Tuesday night doesn’t see any elite centers on the court, so we’d advise staying away from the Hassan Whitesides and Jusuf Nurkics of the slate and instead going for value picks.
Bismack Biyombo may be overpaid based on his entire season’s body of work, but with Nikola Vucevic out, he’s becoming a go-to pick. His last outing saw him 26.25 FPTS, but two games prior he hit 41.25.
Brook Lopez, LAL [@SAC] (DK: $4.6k, FD: $5.1k)
There may not be a better center matchup than the one Brook Lopez has Tuesday night. The Kings’ young bigs can get out and run—do doubt about it. But in halfcourt sets, where Lopez performs best, they’re going to struggle to stop the Lakers’ center when he gets into isolation possessions.
