NBA DFS: Targets for 2/10

IMG_4150

TGIF – we’re back for tonight’s 9-game, NBA DFS slate! Lock time is 30 minutes later, so we have a little more time to work on our lineups. We already know of some players who are out, but they aren’t providing the best value options. With Danilo Gallinari, Emannuel Mudiay, and Kenneth Faried out, other Nuggets’ targets are priced up, leaving us searching and waiting for value. A fun little note: today is Paul Millsap’s birthday!

The plays:

John Wall (WAS vs. IND)

FanDuel: $10,500 (PG)

DraftKings: $10,400 (PG)

The Wizards have been playing great as of late, and has made us forget about their dismal start to the season. Wall is one of my favorite PG targets for tonight. His price has dropped a little on DK, but it’s a matter of whether we can fit him. It’s hard for me to take a stance on the Pacers at times, with Paul George being a tough read. I do believe Wall will have a dominant performance.

Darren Collison (SAC vs. ATL)

FanDuel: $5,200 (PG)

DraftKings: $5,400 (PG/SG)

With Ty Lawson doubtful at the moment, Collison is a strong play on both sites, especially if Lawson is out. He’s played at least 32 minutes in the last four games. During this time, steals have helped pad is fantasy points and he doesn’t turn the ball over a lot either. Collison’s price dropped a bit on FD while staying the same on DK (also has SG eligibility which I really love for tonight), and I’m confident that he’ll be able to reach value again.

Kevin Durant (GS @ MEM)

FanDuel: $10,300 (SF)

DraftKings: $9,400 (SF)

This is a target based on Durant’s price on DK, even with Stephen Curry at just $100 more on DK. The Grizzlies have a defensive rating that’s fourth best in the NBA, but are softer against the forward position. The little bonus of making three-pointers does add up and can make a difference for your lineup. For the season against forwards, the Grizzlies are giving up 3.1 three-pointers, which is the ninth most in the NBA, but are seventh best against guards.

Nikola Jokic (DEN @ NYK)

FanDuel: $9,900 (PF)

DraftKings: $9,200 (PF/C)

Jokic is under $10k, yes! His price certainly escalated quickly, but for good reason. He’s getting the chance to showoff his skills, and with a depleted Nuggets roster, Jokic could have a monster night against the Knicks. The Knicks are giving up the seventh most rebounds, which is where Jokic’s fantasy points can pile up.

Also take into consideration:

Mike Conley (MEM vs. GS) – on both sites

FanDuel: $7,400 (PG)

DraftKings: $7,300 (PG)

Derrick Rose (NYK vs. DEN) – on both sites

FanDuel: $6,200 (PG)

DraftKings: $6,300 (PG)

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ATL @ SAC) – on both sites

FanDuel: $5,600 (SG)

DraftKings: $5,700 (PG/SG)

Dwayne Wade (CHI @ PHO) – on both sites, preferably if Jimmy Butler is out

FanDuel: $8,000 (SG)

DraftKings: $7,800 (SG)

Wilson Chandler (DEN @ NYK) – on both sites

FanDuel: $6,700 (SF)

DraftKings: $7,100 (SF/PF)

Michael Beasley (MIL vs. LAL) – on both sites if he starts

FanDuel: $4,400 (SF)

DraftKings: $3,900 (SF/PF)

Marc Gasol (MEM vs. GS) – on DK

FanDuel: $8,400 (C)

DraftKings: $7,400 (C)
