Note: We aren’t going crazy. We are skipping Kevin Durant & Giannis Antetokounmpo purposely simply because they are a given. We all know they are the top guys, so we are looking at guys who aren’t as much automatic to take a look at for DraftKings NBA.
Tobias Harris – $6,000
Harris should get more shot opportunities, starting Friday night against a Knicks squard playing on the backend of a back-to-back. Avery Bradley is out for about a week or so, and Harris will again be the top scoring threat for the Pistons. Look for Tobias to bring solid points in three-point shooting, rebounding & solid passing.
Kyle Kuzma – $6,300
Kyle Kuzma is the talk of the Los Angeles Lakers right now. Lonzo Ball is having a solid season all around, but Kuzma is the beneficiary of much of Lonzo’s passing & playmaking. Kuz makes buckets, hands down. He is trending upwards right now & the Rockets game was his coming out party.
He had 58 DraftKings NBA points, his career high, and it was the third straight game where he improved the overall DFS stat line. The Lakers have a solid rotation & minutes system right now. Kuz has played 40 minutes in the last two games. He is benefitting big from that trust that has been built up and is a solid DraftKings option almost each night.
Khris Middleton – $7,400
Khris Middleton is one of the underrated players in the NBA – unless you are a DraftKings player. Middleton doesn’t have a game under 37 DraftKings points in his last 10 games, and he & Giannis Antetokounmpo have become a strong 1-2 punch in Milwaukee.
He fills up the stat sheet across the board & shoots well from the field, even though the three-point shooting is rough right now.
