James Harden (vs BOS – $11,400 on DK; $11,300 on FD): As always, this is about value with Harden. And it’s a tough matchup which doesn’t give me the best of confidence either. I still believe Westbrook offers more value though Harden’s ceiling is high because of his overall game.

Kawhi Leonard (at PHI – $9,300 on DK; $9,200 on FD): Kawhi has been consistent as of late but his overall ceiling has declined. And the Sixers are a tough matchup. George is doing about the same in terms of numbers and he’s a cheaper option. He’s the better option between the two in this one.

Ben Simmons (vs LAC – $8,600 on DK; $9,100 on FD): It’s a tough matchup for Simmons and this feels more like an Embiid or Harris game. Did I mention that I’m confident in the Harris? Simmons is going to see some tough defenders and his lack of scoring is concerning in this one.

Jrue Holiday (vs POR – $7,900 on DK; $7,400 on FD): Holiday has been inconsistent as Zion, Ingram, and Lonzo are the three who have taken more control of the offense while Holiday does what he can and step up when needed. He’ll have to burn a lot of energy on the defensive end as well.

Next. DraftKings NBA picks February 11. dark

DeMar DeRozan (at OKC – $7,200 on DK; $7,200 on FD): DeRozan can be inconsistent and the Thunder are good against the position. And because this is a matchup that Aldridge always dominates, I have less confidence in DeRozan. There’s better value below him in this night.
