We weren’t incorrect in targeting Celtics players last night, however, a lack-luster performance by Kevin Durant (who ended up being our lowest scoring player!!!) couldn’t get us to cash in either our 50/50’s or GPP’s as we finished the slate with a disappointing 264.25-point performance. Leading the way last night for our squad was Kyrie Irving (46.75 points), Steven Adams (37.75 points), & Jayson Tatum (34.75 points).
Let’s get back to our winning ways as we look at our NBA DraftKings lineup tonight for the 10-game “Main” slate that starts at 7:00pm.
As I’ve been doing more lately, I’m just posting the images of my initial lineup as we generally will be making changes as the day goes on.
We’re going to start with Atlanta today as I like their match-up against a San Antonio Spurs team, who has been awful defensively on the road as of late. Atlanta might be without both John Collings (illness) & Dewayne Dedmon (knee) which makes me want to get both Trae Young & Alex Len on the team.
If both Collins & Dedmon are out, Trae Young will have to put up huge offense numbers for the Hawks to have a chance tonight. San Antonio has had trouble defending PG’s all season and I think Young could put up 40 points tonight and possibility a 55-60 DraftKings point night.
Len is coming off a disappointing effort against Miami, however, the Spurs are a much better matchup and Len has 40+ point potential when he sees 25-30 mins.
I’m staying in the SAS/ATL matchup against going with Derrick White who had been solid since returning from injury and has put up 34.5+ DraftKings points in each of his last three games. White does a nice job contributing across the board as he has at least 1 block & 1 steal in each of his last 4 games and if he can start hitting some more shots, he certainly has some great potential at a very reasonable price.
Ben Simmons has been incredible with Joel Embiid out and although he played 40 minutes last night, he has too good of a match-up against a Chicago Bulls team that has struggled against opposing PG’s all season. Simmons has put up three straight 50+ DraftKings point games and as he should see another 40 minutes tonight, he is well worth the high price tag.
We’re looking at the NY/PHX match-up and going to go with the Knicks Allonzo Trier and the Suns Kelly Oubre Jr. Both of these players might have low floors, but they also have high ceiling as both demonstrated in their last games as Trier went off for 44.5 points while Oubre Jr. dropped a 53.75-point performance. Both players have been seeing around 30 minutes consistently over their last few games and I like both of these players tonight.
