DraftKings NBA Small Forwards:
Brandon Ingram ($8,000): Ingram has been a little inconsistent of late. The only games that seem to be troubling him are the ones in which he’s in foul trouble. This has the looks of a great matchup for Ingram, but he struggled in the first game against the Kings. I don’t like taking risks at this price, but Ingram has the upside to make it worthwhile.
Will Barton ($6,200): Barton is back on track. He has at least 36 DraftKings points in the last two games. We saw Barton drop 37.75 DraftKings points in the first game against Dallas this year. Murray and Jokic aren’t dominating right now. That leaves plenty open for guys like Barton and Harris. The Denver bench is loaded, but they still run a pretty tight rotation.
De’Andre Hunter ($5,300): Hunter has had a lot of success in the two games against the Knicks this year. He has 76.5 DraftKings points in the two games. His minutes are more consistent than Reddish, and honestly, the premium on that consistency isn’t too much to pay. I’m not opposed to running a Hawks stack tonight, especially if the Knicks are going to play everyone in a uniform and see what sticks. They’ll sacrifice defense again.
Bogdan Bogdanovic ($5,100): Bogdan still runs hot and cold in the starting lineup, which makes him really hard to rely on. Both Bogdan and Buddy are GPP gold. If they get hot, they can turn in 10x value at their respective prices. Those times are few and far between though. Most often they cannibalize each other and both end up around 5x value. They are both worth a look against the Pelicans though.
Kent Bazemore ($4,600): Bazemore has fit in nicely with the Kings, who surprisingly are succeeding while running everyone about 25 minutes. It’s frustrating for DFS, but it has really helped the consistency of Bazemore who wasn’t getting consistent minutes in Portland. Just like Bogdan and Buddy, he rarely gets 6x value, but the floor is nice.
Svi Mykhailiuk ($4,100): Svi has between 22 and 26 DraftKings points in each of the last five games. You can rightfully complain about lack of upside, but for cash punts, there are few better. Svi is in play for GPP’s too, but he’s cash game gold, especially when you need some value.
