DraftKings NBA centers:

Best Bets:

Zion Williamson ($7,800): Sure, I run my mouth about Zion yet to hit 40 DraftKings points on Tuesday and he breaks the damn slate. 50.75 doesn’t represent his ceiling, but it may for this year. After all, he did that to the Blazers in just 28 minutes. That highlights the fact that the Pelicans aren’t going to push him. This is another good matchup, but expect Zion in the mid-30’s tonight. I’m not saying he’s not worth the price, but 5x value could be a chore tonight.

Honorable Mention:

Steven Adams ($5,300): The Thunder are finally back to giving Adams his full compliment of minutes. The 32 minutes against the Spurs on Tuesday was his most since January 7. Adams looks like a very nice bargain as well tonight. The Thunder eased him back, but since Noel is struggling again, it’s time to turn Adams loose again. That should be the case tonight as well.

Derrick Favors ($4,900): There’s only so much Favors can do in 20-24 minutes per game. Since Zion’s arrival, that has been the fate of Favors. He’s still a strong player when he’s in there, but the upside is capped. This is a reasonable price for Favors since he’s usually in the 20’s somewhere.

Dark Horses:

Daniel Theis ($4,600): Theis could have his hands full in this one. However, he’ll dish it out as well. Theis racked up 40 DraftKings points on The Clippers in the first meeting. With Kanter back in the fold he may not see 31 minutes again, but Theis will see enough court time to do some nice damage for this price.

Ivica Zubac ($4,200): If you had told me back around Halloween that we would see a point this season where Zubac was a more reliable fantasy contributor than Harrell I would have had every DFS site suspend your account for your own safety. We have reached that point. Harrell still has far more upside, but Zubac has a higher floor and is often just as good as Harrell.
