Point Guard

Kyle Lowry ($7,100) vs Kings- Kyle Lowry had a rough few games but he bounced back on Wednesday by putting up 21 PTS 6 REB and 3 AST on 7/12 from the field along with 6 threes. He had been struggling at the 3 point line as of late so it was good to see him get that going in a big way. The Kings struggle on the defensive end of the court and Lowry has shown us in the past that when he is on he can fill up the stat sheet in a big way. Lowry is a safe play in my eyes and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him eclipse 40 FPTS tonight.

Shooting Guard

Anthony Edwards ($4,800) vs 76ers- Anthony Edwards has definitely had some growing pains in his rookie season, but that is to be expected with the circumstances behind this season. The Wolves are not a good team right now but Edwards has been active on the defensive end with steals and he is still getting up a ton of shots per game. Against the Warriors in their last game he had a huge night scoring 40 FPTS with 25 PTS 4 REB and adding 3 STLs. The jump shot was falling at a high rate and against the 76ers I think it will happen again. Nobody at this price shoots as much and is active in the offensive like Edwards and I am betting that will turn into results tonight.

Small Forward

De’Andre Hunter ($6,300) vs Wizards- Hunter has really came into his own this season for the Hawks. He is averaging almost 18 on the year and in the last 4 games he has put up 21.8 PPG 3.9 RPG and 3.5 APG on over 50% shooting from the field. He also hasn’t scored under 36 FPTS in each of the last 3 games. Hunter will be up against the Wizards tonight, who have one of the worst defenses in the NBA and have been struggling a lot as a whole recently. Hunter is just playing too good right now to pass up so I will be riding him at this price.

Power Forward

Domantas Sabonis ($9,200) vs Hornets- Sabonis has been one of the best big men in the NBA year and he plays a lot like Nikola Jokic. He is coming off of a game where he recorded 55.75 FPTS with 22 PTS 11 REB and 10 AST. Sabonis is usually a monster on the glass while averaging 20 PPG so it was good to see him record 10 AST while he is averaging 5.8 on the year. The Pacers will be up against the Hornets, who come into this game allowing the most points to opposing PF/C’s on DK this season. The price is steep but well worth it in my opinion.


Marvin Bagley III ($5,800) vs Raptors- People have had a lot of opinions on Marvin Bagley but he has quietly been putting together some solid games for the Kings. In the last 3 games he is averaging 12 PPG 10.3 RPG and he has even scored 16+ PTS in 3 of the last 5 games. He seems to have something going for him and it is good to see him so active on the glass. The Raptors come into this game ranked 26th vs opposing big men on DK this year so I think Bagley will be able to continue his streak of solid play. At only $5,800 Bagley is a real double-double threat in an above average matchup.

Sleeper Play

Cody Zeller ($4,000) vs Pacers- Cody Zeller has been injured for most of the season but he just had his best game since his return from injury. He put up 10 PTS with 14 REB and 4 AST against the Pacers and played his highest minutes of the year, 30. Zeller’s salary has jumped from $3,300 3 games ago, but I think there is still value at this price. He has been a very solid option in the past and if we are past the days of his minutes restriction, he could be fully unleashed here.
