DraftKings NBA Point Guards:

Best Bets:

Kyle Lowry ($7,800): PG thins out quickly when you realize Luka is almost as much as Harden and is playing the Heat. Kyrie is out. Russ is supposed to be out. That leaves an ice-cold Lowry, who is just 4-23 from the floor over the last two games. The volume is still there, so once the shooting woes subside, Lowry should be back to cracking 40 with ease. I think that starts tonight.

Spencer Dinwiddie ($7,700): Toronto is never an easy matchup no matter which position you play, but Dinwiddie has at least 36 DraftKings points in every game with Kyrie out. That’s close enough to 5x value that Dinwiddie probably wont kill our lineups even with a floor game. I would expect him right around 40 though, even with this matchup.

Honorable Mention:

Ja Morant ($7,400): The rookie has seen his share of ups and downs so far in the early season, but he should be well rested against a Wizards team that isn’t very good. I would side with him turning in one of his better games here. For this price, it’s worth finding out.

Kendrick Nunn ($6,400): Nunn found the going a little tougher against the Lakers, but he still turned in almost 5x value. The Heat aren’t any more healthy than they were last night. Nunn is going to see a ton of minutes again. This matchup is also a little on the tougher side, but if Nunn can hit 5x against the Lakers, he’s a safe bet to do it against anyone.

Dark Horses:

Dennis Schroder ($5,500): I think I trust Schroder more than any other Thunder guard at this point. For the price anyway. Schroder has at least 25 DraftKings points in seven straight. Schroder has a high floor, but the upside is capped so long as he keeps coming off the bench.

Seth Curry ($4,500): You boys like Mexico!?!? Curry sure does. He racked up 50.25 DraftKings points and was hot from everywhere in a win over Detroit. If Wright returns, I’ll have to move off of Curry. Dallas is pretty strong at guard while at full strength. I still wont use Ish though. The price is too high to get proper value out of him.

Bruce Brown ($3,700): Even though Brown still gets good run with Jackson out, his upside is rather limited. However, he’s a good value for this price. Brown has at least 6x value in three straight games. He lack of scoring keeps him from really putting up a good line, but the floor is very good for a value play.
