DraftKings NBA Shooting Guards:

Best Bets:

Brad Beal ($9,300): Beal torched Charlotte in the first meeting for 57.25 DraftKings points. The Clippers were able to lock down Beal, but they are about the only team that has been able to accomplish that. Charlotte isn’t any better now than they were in the first meeting. I expect another big night from Beal here.

Terry Rozier ($7,400): Like Graham, Rozier struggled with his shot against the Hawks. You can at least say the Hawks are an improving team. Both should get back on track in a dream matchup with the Wizards. Average players are dropping 50 DraftKings points on this team. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Rozier near that mark tonight.

Honorable Mention:

Tyler Herro ($5,900): The Heat are going to have some interesting decisions to make once they are back at full strength. One of them is what to do with Herro. He was ineffective coming off the bench and only playing around 20 minutes per game. Herro has started the last two games and racked up 80.75 DraftKings points in 73 minutes. So long as Herro is starting, he’s more than worth this price. He could be in for big things against the Hawks.

RJ Barrett ($5,500): The rookie has had his ups and down, but the minutes were definitely one of the ups in the first game post-Fizdale. The new Knicks regime ran Barrett 36 minutes, and he responded with 31.25 DraftKings points. If the Knicks run Barrett 36 minutes against Portland, he could put up one of his best lines of his young career. Barrett is worth the risk tonight.

Dark Horses:

Kevin Huerter ($4,400): Huerter showed no ill effects from the shoulder injury in putting up 28 DraftKings points on the Hornets on Sunday. His minutes are likely going to be capped around 25 again. Against the Heat, that really limits his upside. However, Huerter looked strong enough in his return that he should still hit 5x value. There’s just not much for upside here.

Matisse Thybulle ($4,300): If Richardson is out again, I may have a take a flier on Thybulle. In the last three full games that he has played, Thybulle has at least 20 DraftKings points in each filling in for J-Rich. That culminated in an impressive 36 DraftKings point outing against a good Raptors team. I don’t know that Thybulle will get enough chances if Richardson is back, but if he starts, use him.
