It is a nice 10 game slate tonight, here are 3 players to build your Draftkings lineup around.
Bradley Beal, $9,600
Beal has been on an absolute tear over the past few games. 34,33,44 and 44 points in the last 4 games and he played 37 or more minutes in each game. Beal is Washington’s main offensive weapon and he has taken full advantage. Defense will be optional in this game, Charlotte gives up 112 points a game and Washington is the worst in the league giving up 121 a night. I like using my high salary players in games where there is little risk of them sitting the 4th in a blowout. This will be a high scoring game but I don’t see either team pulling away too much.
Bojan Bogdanovic, $6,200
The Warriors are tough to watch this year. Golden State’s defense has been atrocious, especially their perimeter defense. Bogdanovic is going to torch them tonight. He is shooting 45% from 3 on the year and I think he is going to tee off on the worst 3 point defending team in the league. Opponents are shooting 40.3% against the Warriors from 3 this season. I think Bogdanovic will have a second straight 30 point game.
Nerlens Noel, $4,500
Noel has been playing great off the bench for the Thunder. Adams is still dealing with a knee injury and it seems like they may have him on a minutes restriction. Noel was been getting increased minutes the past few games and he has surpassed his fantasy average by 10+ points the last 2 games. I think the trend will continue, Noel is likely to see at least 25 minutes tonight against the Lakers.
Those are my 3 locks. I am looking at taking Drummond, $8,500, in my utility slot. He is undervalued against the Hawks after an off night against the Bulls last game. If you us my 3 picks you will be left with $5,940 to complete the rest of your lineup. Good Luck.
