NBA DFS: Targets for 2/24
With the All Star Break and trade deadline behind us, let’s get started on tonight’s 10-game, NBA DFS slate. We still need to sift through players who were involved in trades, so keep an eye on any news involving them throughout the day.
T.J. McConnell (PHI vs. WAS)
FanDuel: $6,000 (PG)
DraftKings: $5,500 (PG)
I still have a strong “like” for McConnell, and as long as his price feels right, that’s probably not going to change. He’s been consistent, but feels like a sure tilt because there are times when he doesn’t start scoring fantasy points until well into a game. John Wall is fourth in the NBA in turnovers, with 4.2 per game. If McConnell can get a couple of steals, it would be a nice bump to his fantasy points. As long as he plays at least 30 minutes, he should be fine.
Victor Oladipo (OKC vs. LAL)
FanDuel: $6,000 (SG)
DraftKings: $6,500 (SG)
Shooting guards against the Lakers have done well, and Oladipo is a nice mid-priced option at the position. A little more pricey on DK though, but I would still take the chance. The Thunder have added Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott to the team, but it’s unclear as of now if they’re available to play, but if not, better yet for Oladipo and his minutes and usage.
Gordon Hayward (UTA @ MIL)
FanDuel: $7,800 (SF)
DraftKings: $7,300 (SF)
The small forward position is one that I don’t care much for tonight, but a site like FD makes it tough when you have to roster two of them. Hayward’s price feels a little high on FD (much more favorable on DK), but he definitely can reach 40 points. I wouldn’t be worried about the return of Rodney Hood. It’s his first game back from injury and will probably see limited minutes.
Dario Saric (PHI vs. WAS)
FanDuel: $6,200 (PF)
DraftKings: $6,400 (SF/PF)
His price may stop people in their tracks, but without Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel, Saric should have a big game tonight against the Wizards. According to nbawowy.com, Saric’s usage rate without Embiid and Noel is at 24.4, while playing 722 minutes. For the last several games, Saric has reached the minimum value you want, and tonight shouldn’t be any different.
Paul Millsap (ATL vs. MIA)
FanDuel: $7,700 (PF)
DraftKings: $7,400 (PF)
Millsap is always up for strong consideration for me anytime he’s under $8,000. I really like him for his price on both sites, but especially with Dennis Schroder suspended for tonight’s game. Back to nbawowy.com, in regards to fantasy points per minute, Millsap has 1.16 on FD and 1.23 on DK, without Schroder on the floor. These are better than his overall points per minute for the season.
Also take into consideration:
Goran Dragic (MIA @ ATL) – on DK
FanDuel: $7,800 (PG)
DraftKings: $6,800 (PG)
Tim Hardaway Jr. (ATL vs. MIA) – on both sites
FanDuel: $5,800 (SG)
DraftKings: $5,700 (PG/SG)
Harrison Barnes (DAL @ MIN) – on both sites
FanDuel: $6,100 (SF)
DraftKings: $6,000 (SF/PF)
Serge Ibaka (TOR vs. BOS) – on FD
FanDuel: $5,900 (PF)
DraftKings: $6,000 (PF)
DeAndre Jordan (LAC vs. SAS) – on DK
FanDuel: $7,600 (C)
DraftKings: $6,000 (C)
