DraftKings NBA 6 Game Slate
Draftkings NBA Point Guards
Frank Ntilikina ($4,300) Cash and GPPs
Frank is in the best match-up per position as the Wizards are giving up the 2nd most points to Point Guards this season. Last four games, Frank produced 24, 16.8, 31.8, and 23.3 DKFP. If the Knicks want to keep this game close they are going to need all their starters to score.
Bryn Forbes ($4,300) Cash and GPPs
Forbes has constantly appeared on my Breakdowns. The fact is, he is constantly performing and playing great minutes for his price. To top it off, Orlando is giving up the 5th most points to Point Guards this season.
DraftKings NBA Shooting Guards
When it comes to Shooting Guards I typically look for a value play that can open up the studs on the slate. Normally, I find this play closer to lock. Tonight, there are a few value plays at Shooting Guards you can feel confident in.
CJ McCollum ($6,100) Cash
CJ is on a back-to-back at home versus the Timberwolves tonight. The thing is with CJ is that he has constantly been performing this season. Last four games versus the Pelicans, he produced 30, 28, 34.3, and 30 DKFP. One bad game is not going to push me off of Cash games for McCollum.
Danny Green ($4,400) Cash and GPPs
Green is in the best match-up tonight as the Lakers are giving up the 2nd most points to Shooting Guards this season. At just $4,400, Green leaves plenty of room for upside at his position. Toronto is also at an uptempo (+4.31 Pace) match-up and the last game on the slate which could lower his ownership.
Other Options: Josh Okogie ($4,400) Cash
DraftKings NBA Small Forwards
The Small Forward spot on Draftkings can be tricky at times. I generally look for value at this spot but do not try to punt too much. Typically, I try to find a play under $7,100 that can produce around 40 DKFP.
Kelly Oubre ($4,500) Cash and Upside
Currently, Otto Porter is listed questionable. Last four games Oubre produced 22, 25.5 , 14.5, and 42,3 DKFP. Tonight with out Porter, Oubre is going to have plenty of room for upside to produce versus the Knicks. Oubre could be projected into the starting line-up and receive a massive usage bump.
Al-Farouq Aminu ($5,100) Cash and GPPs
Aminu is in the best match-up on the slate as the Timberwolves are giving up the 2nd most points to Small Forwards this season. Last three games Aminu played 33, 28, and 29 minutes going for 34, 14, and 26.5 DKFP. In an uptempo match-up Aminu has room to produce on his cheap price tag on Draftkings.
DraftKings NBA Power Forwards
Normally, the Power Forward or the Point Guard is where you find your highest scoring player of the night and where I spend majority of my salary. I look for games that are high and tight, where Vegas is projecting a high total and the game to stay close. Typically, I use those games and target the highest usage and minutes projected players that are in good Defense versus Position match-ups.
Jared Dudley ($3,400) Cash
Dudley is coming into the best match-up per position as the 76ers are giving up the most points to Power Forwards this Season. At just $3,400 can produce a solid Cash line while playing solid minutes like he did versus Detroit with 38 minutes.
Noah Vonleh ($4,900) Cash and GPPs
Vonleh is on the front end of a back-to-back but is going to need to produce tonight to keep this game in check. Currently, the Wizards are giving up the 8th most points to Power Forwards leaving Vonleh room to excel at his cheap price tag on DraftKings. Last three games before Dallas embarrassment, Vonleh produced 42, 27, and 25.3 DKFP.
Other Options: Dario Saric ($5,000) Cash
Draftkings NBA Centers
Jonas Valanciunas ($5,600) Cash and GPPs
Jonas has shown his upside the last two games going for 35.8 and 32.5 DKFP. Tonight he is in the best match-up on the slate as the Lakers are giving up the most point to Centers this season. At just $5,600 sign me up for Cash games with upside. Hopefully being the last game on the slate keeps his ownership down.

Mitchell Robinson ($4,100) Cash
Robinson has shown what he can do starting at center going for 39.5 DKFP in 34 minutes, shooting 5-of-6 with 10 rebounds. Tonight he draws the Wizards who are giving up the 6th most points to Centers this season. If he continues his starting fire, sign me up for cash games with upside.
JaVale McGee ($6,300) Cash
McGee is on the slate again. Sign me up for cash games. As mentioned in every article he is on the slate, McGee has been a great cash game play. I will continually draft him with what he is currently producing every night.
Other Options: Marc Gasol ($7,700) Cash
