Point Guard Target

Dennis Schroder
DraftKings Price – $4,600

Schroder is almost a must-start play anytime Jeff Teague sits. Last season he saw massive, massive jumps in points, rebounds, and assists as well as usage and minutes with Teague out. His full game log from last season’s games without Teague is below… Schroder put up 33 points in 33 minutes against the defensive-minded Utah Jazz on Sunday and I think he goes over that number tonight, which at just $4,600 is a solid 7x+ value.

Shooting Guard Target

Will Barton
DraftKings Price – $4,700

Will Barton is a lot like Schroder in that given minutes, you are guaranteed to get productivity because he is so active. He blends perfectly with Mudiay because he runs the floor so well, and has been on a roll over the past week averaging over 44 DraftKings PPG in his last two games. Last season Barton averaged over 20 and 9 in games that he was active against the Pelicans, so clearly this is a matchup he can thrive in.


Small Forward Target

Giannis Antetokounmpo
DraftKings Price – $7,000

Having not watched a ton of Mavs games this season, one of the more surprising stats I saw when researching this slate was Antetokounmpo’s splits with and without Jabari Parker. While his minutes remain constant at around 36, he has massive swings in usage, and as a result, 20%+ drop in scoring, rebounding, and assists. With Parker out for this road trip, look for Giannis to string together some 40+ point performances starting tongith.

Power Forward Target

Anthony Davis
DraftKings Price – $10,400

Davis averaged 57 DraftKings PPG against the Nuggets last season, and with Faried hurting and Nurkic and Lauvergne hurting the Nuggets front court is extremely thin right now. Davis has averaged 53 over his last four games, but has gone over 63 twice and is shooting over 57% over that stretch. Look for him to push 6x value for his $10,400 salary tonight.

Center Target

Brook Lopez
DraftKings Price – $7,100

He doesn’t have the flash or upside that Drummond and Whiteside offer, but Lopez is steady and has a much better matchup tonight. The Hawks have been in the NBA’s bottom 3 in defending the Center position all season, and Lopez has been a 5x+ value lock for the past few weeks. Averaging 38.7 DraftKings PPG over his last 10 games, he is also averaging nearly 4 blocks per game during that stretch, and had 3 in his last meeting with the Hawks, a game that saw him put up over 50 DraftKings points. That is the sort of consistent value that we are looking to plug in around our high upside plays every night.
