As always, if you need any further lineup advice, just let me know on Twitter.
Top NBA DFS Play:
Karl-Anthony Towns (C, $10,000)
Karl-Anthony Towns returns from his two-game suspension tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies. He will be fresh and ready to go for this prime match-up.
After many years of slow and difficult match-ups against the Grizzlies’ defense, they now rank fourth in pace and 17th in defensive efficiency this season.
They are particularly vulnerable inside, allowing the third most rebounds and tenth most points in the paint per game. Prior to getting ejected against the Philadelphia 76ers last Wednesday (which ultimately led to Towns’ suspension), Towns played like an MVP-candidate during the first week of the season. He scored 68.3 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
Recently, Anthony Davis exploded against Memphis’s defense for 73.5 DraftKings fantasy points, and Towns has similar upside tonight.
Value NBA DFS Plays:
Malcolm Brogdon (PG/SG, $8,100)
Malcolm Brogdon is an absolute stud with the Indiana Pacers. He is averaging 47.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game this season and has gone over 45 DraftKings fantasy points in six of his first seven starts. This includes four double-doubles.
Tonight, he is home in a juicy spot against the Washington Wizards. They allow the eight most DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing points guards, rank 26th in defensive efficiency, and are starting 5-foot-9 point guard Isaiah Thomas. Thomas is a notoriously bad defender.
Brogdon should continue to shine on Wednesday night, making him an excellent value for all formats.
Domantas Sabonis (calf) and Myles Turner (ankle) are questionable for tonight. If they both end up sitting again, Brogdon will see a nice boost to his usage rate. During the minutes he has logged without Sabonis and Turner this season, his usage rate increases 6.2%.
Bruce Brown (SG/SF, $5,300)
For the third straight game, the Detroit Pistons are without their top three point guards – Derick Rose (hamstring), Reggie Jackson (back), and Tim Frazier. (shoulder). Brown will continue to start at PG and is a very strong value, even though his price tag hit a season high.
In his past two games, Brown supplied 40.4 DraftKings fantasy points per game across a team-high 42.2 minutes per game. With the above-mentioned three guards missing, especially Rose, who is fourth in the league in usage rate this season, there is a huge void in the Pistons’ offense.
Brown has garnered a 23.3% usage rate in his last two games, which is a sizable increase from the 14.6% usage rate he received in the first six games.
He produced 1.1 DraftKings fantasy points per minute and should approach 40 minutes again tonight against the New York Knicks. The Knicks rank 21st in defensive efficiency, and Brown is an obvious value at a perpetually-thin small forward position.
Lou Williams (PG/SG, $6,500)
With Kawhi Leonard receiving his first night off for rest last Wednesday, Lou Williams started against the Utah Jazz. He had a solid night against the top-ranked defense in the NBA with 31.75 DraftKings fantasy points.
However, tonight, Williams will have better results with Leonard resting against the Milwaukee Bucks.
This game has the second-highest total of the slate (228 points) and is expected to stay competitive with Milwaukee only favored by four points.
Furthermore, the Bucks have been susceptible to opposing point guards with Malcolm Brogdon now in Indiana, allowing the ninth most DraftKings fantasy points per game to the position.
The Jazz, who Williams played against in his first game without Leonard, allow the third fewest DraftKings fantasy points per game. Leonard only trails James Harden in usage rate this season, and when he is off the floor, Williams’ usage rate jumps 5.2% to a team-high 35.6%.
Williams scores 1.14 DraftKings fantasy points per minute in situations without Leonard, and the reigning Sixth Man of the Year is a very strong combination of safety and upside at $6,500.
