Bradley Beal – $7,500
Bradley Beal is in a great position for DraftKings NBA fantasy owners now that John Wall is back. Beal is gaining more open shot opportunities, and makes him more dangerous than ever. Beal is putting up 35-40 points consistently, playing 38-40 minutes, and at a position like SG that doesn’t always lead to consistent shooting, Beal is one of the most sure-handed in the NBA.
Brooklyn is giving up almost 88 DraftKings NBA points per game to the shooting guard position. That average is third-worst in all of the league. Look for Beal to continue is strong surge against a weak Nets squad on Friday night.
Klay Thompson – $7,200
Thompson has benefitted in an odd way with Stephen Curry being injured. Klay is averaging just under a DraftKings point per minute right now, but his heavy minutes along with shooting around 20 shots per game makes him a guy to consider heavily in DraftKings. The ceiling over the last 10 games for Klay is 43 DK points with the floor being 28.
Brandon Ingram – $6,800
The youth movement in Los Angeles with the Lakers is truly taking shape. Brandon Ingram has proven to be a true workhorse over the last few games. Two of his last three games he has played 40 minutes, with two of those games having over 40 DraftKings NBA points.
This pick doesn’t have as much to do with the Warriors having bad defense, as much as it does the believe in Ingram. He fills up the stat sheets in points, rebounds, assists & blocks recently – very similar to Lonzo Ball. The great part about the Lakers is that as they are learning – even in blowout situations, the main guys still get heavy minutes becaus they need to learn.
Ingram is no exception.
