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

Before we dive into the Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Phoenix Suns game let’s review the rules for Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

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

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Devin Booker $10,400

Full disclosure, I recognize that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards is a great play at captain tonight. However, with the Phoenix Suns playing to avoid being eliminated from the 2024 Western Conference playoffs, I am pivoting to Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker as my captain for this one game slate.

Let’s dive into Devin Booker’s recent game data to better shed light on my previous statement. Since the beginning of April, the Phoenix Suns have played 11 games (including playoffs). In those 11 games just mentioned, Devin Booker averaged an impressive 25.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1.3 steals a game.

In the Phoenix Suns 126-109 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves two days ago, Devin Booker posted some outstanding DFS numbers. More specifically, Devin Booker accumulated 23 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals in the Suns loss to the Timberwolves.

I think Devin Booker will continue to play quality basketball versus this Minnesota Timberwolves team in Game 4 of the Western Conference playoffs later today.

Flex Plays

Anthony Edwards $11,200

Minnesota guard Anthony Edwards arrives at this evening’s game with the Phoenix Suns playing outstanding basketball from a statistical perspective. Having stated that, how has Anthony Edwards been playing in the 2024 Western Conference playoffs?

In the Minnesota Timberwolves three playoff games played this season (all versus the Suns), Anthony Edwards has averaged a whopping 28 points, 7.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 2.3 steals, a game.

Bradley Beal $8,600

How important has Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal been to the Suns in 2024? Let’s take a look at Bradley Beal’s recent game statistics to answer that question. In the Phoenix Suns’s last six games played (including playoffs), Beal averaged 23.2 points, 5 rebounds, and 4.8 assists, and 1.2 steals a game.

Looking at the data just presented more closely I observed that, in the Phoenix Suns last six games played this season, Beal has averaged 40.2 Draftkings points a game.

Considering the enhanced importance of tonight’s game, I think Phoenix guard Bradley Beal will be shooting the rock early and often as the Suns seek to extend this Western Conference playoff series to at least five games.

Additional flex plays I like this evening (Draftkings price noted): Rudy Gobert $9,400: Kevin Durant $10,200: Jusuf Nurkic $8,000: Drew Eubanks $2,600.
