Jameer Nelson (DEN) $4,400 vs. CLE
Playing Cleveland seems to be a fantasy gold mine for point guards. Russell Westbrook just lit them up for a triple-double, Jeff Teague went off for 22 points and 14 assists, and John Wall recorded 22 points and 12 assists. Jameer Nelson probably won’t double-double, but at his current salary this could prove to be a bargain.
Will Barton (DEN) $6,300 vs. CLE
Shooting guards have also flourished against Cleveland. Bradley Beal had 41 points earlier this week and C.J. Miles had 23 points. The Nuggets are without Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Emmanuel Mudiay are all out. Nikola Jokic will be the biggest beneficiary, but Barton can light up the scoreboard at a given moment.
Kevin Durant (GSW) $9,700 vs. OKC
Return to OKC. Enough said.
Michael Beasley (MIL) $4,200 vs. IND
Jabari Parker’s latest ACL injury could result in a promotion for Beasley into the starting lineup eventually. Thon Maker is not ready for heavy minutes just yet and Beasley has proven he can produce in the NBA. In his last game he played 23 minutes and recorded 15 points, five rebounds and two assists.
Steven Adams (OKC) $6,000 vs. GSW
Zaza Pachulia is out today and the Warriors have been the 11th worst team guarding opposing centers. Adams has flourished since Enes Kanter’s injury. His past six games has yielded 32.4 DraftKings points, which is five points higher than his season average.
Russell Westbrook (OKC) $12,600 vs. GSW
Revenge game. Enough said.
Jeff Green (ORL) $3,800 vs. DAL
Aaron Gordon is out today and Mario Hezonja did not play well in his last start. Jeff Green offers a veteran presence and has the ability to guard the small forward or power forward positions. He has scored in double-digits in six of his past 10 games.
Alan Williams (PHO) $3,000 vs. HOU
Tyson Chandler is out today and Alan Williams came out of nowhere to record 14 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks. Playing against the Rockets, the high tempo could promote for activity for Williams.
