NBA DFS Point Guard Picks
there is a possibility Joel Embiid He could be forced to sit out four straight games when the 76ers take on the Pistons. He’s currently in doubt with a leg injury, but the 76ers should be able to handle business without Embiid on Tuesday.They are currently listed as 12.5 point favorite, and the Pistons rank 29th in defensive efficiency. Ultimately, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if the team holds out another night of star heavyweights.
In that scenario, James Harden It will be one of Slate’s top studs.Embiid’s usage rate increased by +5.8%, the highest in the team from the floor This season, they averaged 1.45 DraftKings points per minute. He scored a triple-double and his 57.75 DraftKings points against the Pistons on Sunday, just what he did in 28.1 minutes. Harden typically has him playing nearly 38 minutes in competitive contests, so if Embiid comes out again on Tuesday, he will have a significant advantage.
Killian Hayes We’re starting to see some of the reasons why he was the No. 7 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.he made the most of his injuries Cade Cunningham, and he recently took his game to another level. Over the past month, he has averaged 1.01 DraftKings points per minute, and has scored at least 33.5 DraftKings points in 5 of his last 6 games. This includes his 47.5 DraftKings points in his last outing, so he offers an excellent mix of floor and ceiling. His $5,700 salary comes with his 99% bargain rating.
Gabe Vincent Another potential value option at point guard. His price in DraftKings is only $3,300, which should give him a significant increase in playing time given the Heat’s injury situation.they will be without Kyle Lowry, Tyler HeroWhen Bam Adebayo, and Vincent increased utilization by +5.4% with all three players off the floor.he’s been projected in us for 33 minutes right now NBA modelplayers with comparable salaries and minute-by-minute forecasts have historically averaged Plus or minus +5.43 of trend tools).
Damien Lillard It stands out as a solid low-cost option for FanDuel. His price tag has dropped about -$1,000 in his last 10 games, and his $9,100 price tag comes with a bargain rating of 92% for him. His 10 pros his trend is his second most at this position, and his 118.25, the Blazers’ implied team total, ranks him fourth in the slate.
NBA DFS Shooting Guard Pick
Donovan Mitchell Revenge game?He played against his old team in Utah and the Jazz were very positive match For fantasy purposes this season. They rank him 26th in defensive efficiency and 8th in pace, so the Cavs have a bit more scoring potential than usual.
Most of the damage to the Jazz has been done in the interior, but it’s been shredded from behind the recent 3-point line. They have allowed 14.7 3-pointers in the last three games, which is his second-most number in the league. Mitchell is the Cavaliers’ top 3-point threat this season, leading the team in 3-point attempts made and attempts per game.
Mitchell is a particularly attractive option at FanDuel, with his $8,900 salary coming with a 96% bargain rating.
Tuesday’s guard has many strong values, Duane Washington Jr.One of the best. The Sun is completely destroyed at this time. Chris Paul, Devin Booker, cam payneWhen Cameron Johnson All missed due to injury.
Washington posted a ridiculous 42.6% utilization on Sunday, with all four players out of the lineup and scoring 31.25 DraftKings points in 25 minutes. He predicted a similar workload on Tuesday, with Washington averaging 1.32 DraftKings points per minute last month. He can do a lot of damage in limited play time.
max strass Another potential beneficiary of Tuesday’s heat. He is predicted for his 35 minutes in his NBA model, averaging 0.81 DraftKings points per minute for him over the past month. With Lowry, Adebayo and Helo off the floor, it wouldn’t be surprising if he increased his efficiency per minute in this spot.
Paul George I am currently dealing with a hamstring injury. Reggie Jackson Played just 7.7 minutes on Sunday.it opened many minutes Terrance Mann, responded with 34.0 DraftKings points. Mann has averaged 0.87 DraftKings points per minute over the past month, so $4,000 is a good enough advantage if you look at the equivalent workload on Tuesday.
NBA DFS Small Forward Pick
Kawai Leonard considered to be the biggest beneficiary of George’s absence. Leonard was briefly put into action by the Clippers this season, but is back playing full workload. He fell just short of his 38.5 minutes last contest, but Leonard can do some serious damage with that much playing time. He posted a +3.50 plus/minus average over his last 10 games at FanDuel, including his 49.4 FanDuel points against the Hawks on Sunday.
Leonard is aggressively overpriced on DraftKings, but $8,400 is reasonable on FanDuel. The match against the Mavericks is tough, but you get a bargain rating of 90%.
Hamidou Diallo Recently released from the depths of the Pistons bench. Diallo is a fantasy favorite and a big factor for the Pistons last year because of his ability to rack up fantasy points quickly Diallo picks up where he left off and in this past month he has made 1 Per minute he scored 1.15 DraftKings points.
He saw a significant increase in playing time on Sunday, posting 27.3 minutes against the 76ers. He responded with his 24.75 DraftKings points and Diallo has scored at least that much more in his last three 20-minute games. He is forecasted for 26 minutes on Tuesday, with Diallo historically averaging plus/minus +4.08 for comparable salary and hour forecasts.
Michal Bridges Usually less known as a fantasy option. He’s been playing a lot of time for the Suns, but he’s been a relatively infrequent player. That said, he may have no choice but to take on a bigger role on Tuesday. Deandre Ayton, Laundry ShametWhen Tory Craig is also questionable. So basically the last person standing is Bridges.
Lauri Markkanen He also has a chance to play his old team on Tuesday and, like Mitchell, he’s thriving in the new environment. An $8,200 salary is very reasonable. The result is a 99% bargain rating, with Markkanen averaging +2.33 plus/minus on comparable salaries this season.
NBA DFS Power Forward Pick
Jimmy Butler It stands out as a transparent top stud on Tuesday’s slate. He’s been in and out of the lineup this season, but for now he’s healthy. The Heat didn’t even name him in Tuesday’s injury report, which is basically an impossibility for the Heat. I’m sure they’ve listed Ballboy as questionable several times this season.
Butler has been effective on the court this season, and with Adebayo, Hero and Lowry off the court, he’s understandably given a big boost. It doesn’t see the biggest boost in terms of usage, but it does give a +10.8% increase in assist rate. He’s averaging 1.33 DraftKings points per minute in that scenario, putting him in a better than normal position against the Thunder. An important pace-up spot for the Heat as they are playing at his second-fastest pace in the league this season.
The Pistons are currently playing without three of their top frontcourt options. Bojan Bogdanovic, Jalen DurenWhen Marvin Bagley All are dealing with injuries so they can get extra playing time. Isaiah StewartStewart clocked over 35 minutes in the final contest and responded with 40.75 DraftKings points against the 76ers. Such production feels reproducible. Stewart is averaging 0.93 points per minute for the Draft Kings this season, and the 76ers’ frontcourt could be an available matchup if Embiid is ruled out again.
Pascal Siakam There was an underrated fantasy season. He’s posted some big numbers in Toronto and plays nearly 40 minutes each night. His average of 1.26 FanDuel points per minute ranks him #1 in Tuesday’s slate standings, which is a very compelling combination. His $9,500 salary at FanDuel has his bargain rating of 95%, leading the position with his trend of 13 pros.He should also not give mass orders possessionSo he’s a very interesting pivot for GPP.
heywood highsmith Another potential value option for Heat. He’s currently projected for 33 minutes in the NBA model at just $3,100 in the DraftKings. That’s a huge amount of playtime for someone who basically priced the bare minimum.
NBA DFS Center Pick
If Ayton can suit up against the Warriors, he stands out as a good option against them. He’s been a solid source of value recently, scoring at least his 40.25 DraftKings points in three straight games. This includes his last game despite playing less than 30 minutes for him in a brutal matchup against the Cavaliers.
Ayton has always been the most aggressive player on the attacking side, but given the team’s current roster, he has no choice on Tuesday. He averaged 1.40 DraftKings points per minute this season with Paul, Booker and Payne off the floor, increasing his utilization by +2.5%. This represents a significant increase from the season-wide average of 1.18.
Orlando Robinson Definitely the best option of the day at DraftKings. His price is just $3,100, and he has a good chance of doing most of the Heat’s center time. Dwayne Dedmon It’s highly likely, but the team has limited him to under 10 minutes in two games since returning to the lineup. could be the main beneficiary of
He’s currently projected for about 30 minutes on the NBA model, and Robinson is a capable fantasy producer this season. He’s an absolute steal against his Thunder, as he’s averaged 0.96 DraftKings points per minute over the past month.
It would be interesting if Embiid could suit up as this slate has plenty of value and not a lot of studs. But there aren’t many players who can match his upside.
Ibiza Zubak Playing over 37.5 minutes in the Clippers’ last game, and playing that much, he has a whopping ceiling. His average this season is just below his fantasy points per minute, and not surprisingly, in the last game he scored 46.5 DraftKings points. His minutes are highly volatile, but worth $5,200.
