NBA DFS: Guards
Victor Oladipo, IND (vs PHO) Price: $9.2k DK, $9.9k FD
Victor Oladpio is officially an All-Star. Whether or not he was “snubbed” by not being named a starter is a worthy debate, but as of Tuesday, he’s officially in the game as a reserve, and he’s undoubtedly earned it.
Although Dipo is coming off a modest 29 FPTS night on Sunday, he hasn’t played since that night and will be well-rested going up against a Phoenix Suns team that not only plays atrocious defense, but creates extra possessions with their top-three pace.
Before his last outing, Oladipo hadn’t seen fewer than 38.75 FPTS in his prior three—including a 50.5-point showing on Jan. 15.
Yogi Ferrell, DAL (vs HOU) Price: $4.6k DK, $4.6k FD
If you’re looking for a value pick early in your selection process, Yogi Ferrell is your guy. His sub-5k cost is surprising considering he’s averaged 27.29 FPTS over his last six—30.85 if you exclude the outlier single-digit performances during that stretch.
The catch, of course, is that he’s going up against an elite defender at his position in Chris Paul. But while that may cause him trouble for spurts throughout this contest, the factors in his favor will outweigh ones going against him.
NBA DFS: Forwards
Ben Simmons, PHI (vs CHI) Price: $7.6k DK, $8.7k FD
Ben Simmons will have plenty of time to make an All-Star Game. In fact, if his rookie season has teased anything, it’s that he’ll likely become a perennial All-Star sooner rather than later.
But on Tuesday, it became clear that he would not be participating in this year’s iteration of the midseason classic.
As you’ll see when you look at the numbers, Simmons has a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bulls in this one. He’s going up against a team that is 30th in DFS at defending his position, and at his cost, he’d already be tough to pass on.
But knowing what we know off the court, which is that he has extra motivation to prove voters wrong, this should be one of his bigger nights of the season.
Jeremy Lamb, CHA (vs NOLA) Price: $4.9k DK, $4.5k FD
“If you’re looking for one of the night’s best value picks, look no further than Charlotte Hornets G/F Jeremy Lamb.” — us on Monday.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
On Monday, Lamb went for 32.75 FPTS (DK) and made three three-pointers. On Wednesday, he’ll be facing a team in the New Orleans Hornets who are just 25th in defending Lamb’s position.
NBA DFS: Centers
Domantas Sabonis, IND (vs PHO) Price: $6.5k DK, $6.7k FD
Domantas Sabonis doesn’t have the extreme upside that guys like DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Joel Embiid have, but he’s going to come with a high floor considering his opponent is the defense-less, pace-heavy Phoenix Suns.
If you choose to expose your frontcourt and seek out value in the backcourt, a guy like Cousins or Embiid will be worth the cost Wednesday night.
But if you need someone who is looking for a bounce-back game at a reasonable price, Sabonis is your guy.
- QST: Jimmy Butler, MIN, G/F, $9.3k [UPGRADES: Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins]
- OUT: Kawhi Leonard, SAS, F, $7.9k [UPGRADES: Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge]
- DBT: DeAndre Jordan, LAC, C, $7.2k [UPGRADES: Blake Griffin]
- OUT: Michael Conley, MEM, G, $6.4k [UPGRADES: Tyreke Evans]
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.
