ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JANUARY 26: Trae Young #11 of the Atlanta Hawks holds the ball for an eight second violation after tip-off in memory of Kobe Bryant during the game against the Washington Wizards at State Farm Arena on January 26, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Trae Young (vs CHA – $10,300 on DK; $9,600 on FD): Whether it’s illness or something else, Trae has had a rough couple of games. He could be without two of his better teammates and the Hornets are good against the position. He’s the highest salary on the night with Giannis being hurt and given his recent games, I wouldn’t trust him to end up as the highest scorer on the night.

Donovan Mitchell (vs TOR – $7,500 on DK; $7,200 on FD): The Raptors aren’t great against the position and they are on a back to back. But Mitchell hasn’t been more than value, sometimes not even value, in recent games despite the Jazz playing very well. It’s a slow night and he does have a high ceiling but he’s not trustworthy at the moment.

Jamal Murray (vs MIL – $7,000 on DK; $6,600 on FD): The Bucks defense look like a mess without Giannis and it’s a back to back for them. But the Nuggets return after a not so great road trip where their offense did not play well. It’s tough to trust Murray despite his ceiling and better than usual circumstances with the Bucks not having Giannis.

Next. DraftKings NBA picks March 9. dark

OG Anunoby (at UTA – $6,200 on DK; $5,200 on FD): OG was down on Sunday night against the Kings and now its a back to back for the Raptors. The Jazz are good against the position and while the price isn’t bad, he is the fourth option at best for the Raptors right now. There’s enough value below him to where you can bypass him at this price.
