The Phoenix Suns travel to California for a matchup with the Sacramento Kings. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Suns vs. Kings 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 this evening’s Phoenix Suns vs. Sacramento Kings matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Domantas Sabonis $12,200

Entering tonight’s game, the Sacramento Kings are currently ranked eighth in the Western Conference playoff standings. Having stated that, one of the reasons why the Kings have played relatively consistent quality basketball this season is talented Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis.

Since the beginning of April, the Sacramento Kings have played six games. In those six games just noted, Domantas Sabonis has averaged a whopping 16.5 points, 15 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1.2 steals a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding offensive numbers from the Sacramento big man.

I expect Sabonis to post outstanding fantasy numbers versus this Phoenix Suns team later today. Having stated that, I am rolling with Domantas Sabonis as my captain for this one game DFS slate.

Flex Plays

De’Aaron Fox $11,200

Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox has quickly ascended to one of the most talented guards in the NBA. How has Fox performed from an offensive efficiency standpoint this season? In 80 games played, Fox has averaged 26.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 2 steals a game. Clearly, the Kings offense runs through the Sacramento point guard.

It should also be mentioned that De’Aaron Fox will be facing a Phoenix Suns defense that has had issues containing opposing point guards lately. In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Phoenix Suns are ranked a rather low 21st in total Draftkings points (49.8) allowed a game to the point guard position.

Kevin Durant $10,800

How important is Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant to this Suns team? Let’s dive into a recent sample size of Kevin Durant’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In the Phoenix Suns last three games played, Durant has averaged 22.7 points, 5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1 steal a game.

Additional flex plays I like this evening: Keegan Murray $7,400: Royce O’Neal $4,800: Eric Gordon $2,400: Davion Mitchell $3,000.
