Bradley Beal (vs MIL – $9,400 on DK; $8,700 on FD): It’s a back to back for the Wizards and the Bucks are the Bucks. Beal hasn’t been great in the last handful of games especially with the price point. Too many red flags in this game to trust him when there is value elsewhere. He did have a big game against the Bulls, but that makes me more worried.

D’Angelo Russell (at DAL – $8,700 on DK; $8,600 on FD): Russell has a high ceiling but it’s a back to back and the team around him just isn’t very good, especially with Towns out of the lineup. The Mavericks will give up points but there’s better value on the Timberwolves with the circumstances than spending on Russell.

Andre Drummond (vs MIA – $8,100 on DK; $8,500 on FD): Drummond isn’t exactly playing big minutes right now and his numbers are hurting. He’s typically good for a double double but that wasn’t even the case in the last game and his double double numbers aren’t on the level of what they were for the Pistons. The price is a tad too high for him right now.

Julius Randle (at HOU – $8,200 on DK; $7,800 on FD): Randle is coming off a poor game and while it would seem good to take bigs against the Rockets, certain bigs aren’t the right guys. And I’m not sure Randle is the right guy as they can attack defensively and stifle his offense. The ceiling is high but he’s a risk.

Next. DraftKings NBA picks February 24. dark

Ja Morant (at LAC – $6,800 on DK; $6,200 on FD): Mortant’s numbers keep dipping and that’s not a great sign. The ceiling is high because he can get hot and do a bit of everything. But the consistency isn’t there right now and it’s a tough matchup against a very good Clippers team.
