March 16, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into this evening’s Knicks vs. Kings game, let’s review the rules for FanDuel single game showdown contest.

FanDuel Single Game Contest Rules

Here are the single game contest rules. You have $60,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team MVP. The MVP accumulates 2x times the standard FanDuel fantasy points value.

The remaining four players in your lineup will be the star, pro, and flex plays. The star player will receive 1.5x the standard fantasy points value. The pro player will accumulate 1.2x the standard fantasy points value.

The final two flex positions will receive the standard points value. Having stated that, it is important for you to identify the correct player for your MVP position if you hope to win a FanDuel single game contest.

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

Here are my FanDuel Player Selections for tonight’s New York Knicks vs. Sacramento Kings matchup.

FanDuel Player Picks

MVP-Domantas Sabonis $16,000

Since the beginning of February, Kings center Domantas Sabonis has played 27 games. In those 27 games just mentioned, Sabonis has averaged an impressive 20.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 8.9 assists a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding offensive numbers from the big man.

Upon reviewing the statistics just noted, what really pops off the page for me is Sabonis is averaging nearly a triple double since the start of February.

Yes, I know that the New York Knicks have one of the top ten defenses in the NBA. However, I am not concerned. New York has not played a game versus the Kings yet in 2024. Tonight, the Knicks defense will be tested in a way the team has not seen this season.

Star-Josh Hart $12,500

Entering tonight’s game, the New York Knicks are currently ranked second in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Having stated that, a big reason why the Knicks are playing relatively consistent quality basketball this season is New York guard Josh Hart.

Let’s dive into a recent sample size of Hart’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In his last three games played, Hart averaged 12 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals a game.

I fully expect Josh Hart’s outstanding play to continue this evening versus the Kings.

Pro-De’Aaron Fox $14,000

Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox has been posting some outstanding offensive numbers in 2024. Through 66 games played this season, Fox is averaging 27 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 1.9 steals a game.

There is no doubt in my mind that Fox will post quality fantasy numbers tonight.

Flex plays I like this evening: Jalen Brunson $14,500: Isaiah Hartenstein $9,000: Harrison Barnes $9,500.
