The Phoenix Suns travel to the Target Center for a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Suns vs. Timberwolves game, let’s review an important note regarding the rules and scoring for the single game showdown contests.

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single game showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single game showdown contests feel free to check out the Draftkings website.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tomorrow’s Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves matchup.

Draftkings Player Picks

Captain-Anthony Edwards $11,000

Minnesota guard Anthony Edwards has certainly been the heart and soul of the Minnesota Timberwolves offense this season. Having stated that, how has Anthony Edwards been playing recently?

Since the beginning of April, the Minnesota Timberwolves have played nine games. In those nine games just noted, Anthony Edwards averaged a robust 25.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1.4 steals a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding offensive numbers from the Minnesota Timberwolves guard.

In the Minnesota Timberwolves 120-95 win over the Phoenix Suns two days ago, Anthony Edwards posted some quality fantasy numbers. Let me be more specific. Anthony Edwards accumulated 33 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals in the Timberwolves victory over the Suns.

For the reasons just stated, I expect Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards to continue his quality play versus this Phoenix Suns team.

Flex Plays

Devin Booker $10,400

Phoenix Suns point guard Devin Booker has clearly illustrated that he can post reliable offensive numbers for this Suns team on a consistent basis. Let’s dive into Devin Booker’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In the Phoenix Suns last four games played, Booker has averaged 25.3 points, 4 rebounds, 2.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 0.7 steals a game.

I also like Booker’s matchup in this game. Why? Devin Booker draws a Minnesota Timberwolves defense that has struggled to defend opposing point guards recently. In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Timberwolves are ranked a rather low 20th in total Draftkings points allowed a game (49.1) to the point guard position.

In summary, I love Devin Booker’s chances to play well versus this vulnerable Minnesota Timberwolves defense in Game 2 of the Western Conference playoffs tomorrow night.

Additional flex plays I like for tomorrow’s game: (Draftkings price noted): Rudy Gobert $9,000: Kevin Durant $10,600: Bradley Beal $8,400: Jaden McDaniels $4,800.
