DraftKings NBA Small Forwards:
LeBron James ($11,300): On a night where three players top $11,000, LeBron is going to go unnoticed. That’s the only reason I can give to play him in a GPP. He doesn’t have the upside of Harden or Luka right now. LeBron’s floor might be safer. After all, he did notch a triple double on Tuesday. I view LeBron as more of a cash play unless you are chasing low ownership.
Jimmy Butler ($8,300): Miami blew out Cleveland, yet Butler was an atrocious 3-16 from the floor. Of course, hitting all 13 free throws can salvage a game in a hurry. Butler wont be that cold from the floor all the time. Now he’s heading back to the place where he spent most of his career. We could see a big game from Butler here. I’m rolling him once just in case he goes off.
Paul George ($8,100): George actually had a better stat line than Kawhi in the debut of the dynamic duo together. Their on-court play was much better in real life than it was for fantasy. For now, I would say go with the cheaper option, which is George. Both had a high volume of shots though. I see more upside with George, but neither are bad options.
Bojan Bogdanovic ($6,200): We saw this from time to time in Indiana. Sometimes Bojan just gets hot. Wednesday was one of those times. Bogdanovic usually adds enough other stats to make him a decent option, but that hasn’t always been the case this year. His floor is lower than in previous seasons.
Tobias Harris ($6,200): I still think this price on Harris looks low. He came in below average against the Knicks, and that’s always a risk will all of the other talent on this team. However, the Spurs just got kicked around by Washington on Wednesday night. Their normally solid defense isn’t anymore. This is another solid place to gamble on Harris.
Shaq Harrison ($5,000): Hutchison is doubtful, and after Harrison’s performance on Wednesday, everyone in the Bulls’ organization should be fired if they don’t start him again. Harrison was little used up until his 45.25 DraftKings point outburst, but that wont be the case here. Let’s make something clear though: Harrison isn’t duplicating that feat tonight. Miami plays good defense and Harrison will be lucky to get much over 30. That said, that’s still over 6x value.
Miles Bridges ($5,000): The Hornets rotation is back to featuring Bridges again and he is not disappointing this time around. Bridges has 52 DraftKings points over the last two games. Now he gets a dream matchup against the Wizards. If Bridges remains in the rotation, he could be in for a really good game.
