Here are a few of my core DraftKings players for tonight’s NBA daily fantasy contests, Tuesday 1/25/16.
J. Wall – $9,200
I love Wall tonight as his tough OPRK will make him less owned than he should be, even though he is playing at home in a very high point total game, is matchup proof, and is one of the few players in the league capable of going off for 80.
E. Payton – $6,300
His inconsistency this season keeps his price reasonable, and he has averaged over 35 minutes and 35 fppg the last 3 games so I will continue to ride the hot hand at a discount.
T. Evans – $7,500
I’ll be targeting a few players from this high point total game tonight in New Orleans. Evans should be fully recovered by now from his knee injury after a few games back, and has a huge ceiling. I like to lean toward the big name SG’s when they’re at home, especially in high scoring games like this one.
K. Leonard – $8,000
Leonard’s price has dropped in the last 9 games by $700, mostly due to the Spurs beating the crap out of teams and Leonard sitting late. However at Golden State, expect Leonard to play 35-40 and the point total is one of the top 3 tonight. Great price and matchup for him tonight.
T. Ariza – $5,200
With Dwight Howard out, the Houston big men will all get a little more time and production. So far it appears Ariza is taking the most advantage by having 2 big games in a row, and his price is still the same. Add to it the matchup and high point total and you got yourself a stew.
J. Smith – $4,000
Has played good minutes and had solid productions in his couple games so far with the Rockets, and with Howard out and the matchup he’s an especially good bargain.
J. Sullinger – $5,500
Aside from a really poor game 2 games ago, Sullinger produces when in. Safe bet for 20-30 and if Boston goes big at Washington tonight then he could see 30+ minutes and score another 40-50. High point total here as well.
S. Hawes – $4,100
Really making the most of his new starting role and getting 30+ minutes. If he can play like he has the last couple then he’s a steal at $4,100.
