DraftKings & FanDuel Slam Dunks, Saturday 10/20

Josh Engleman



EMac gives his favorite NBA DFS picks for Yahoo, DraftKings + FanDuel daily fantasy basketball lineups, including Nikola Jokic | 6/13/21

Throughout the day, we’ve heard a ton of news which turned a relatively pedestrian slate into one that is super interesting, particularly with a Lakers/Rockets game existing in the ultimate late night hammer spot. I love the big guns in that one, but I’m looking to point out a few more deep cuts for tonight’s 10 gamer.

Luka Doncic

The best rookie in the league (yeah, I said it.) has a date with the Jimmy Butler-less Timberwolves and I couldn’t be more excited. He’s a bit pricey on DraftKings, but he’s an absolute bargain on FanDuel at $6200. With Harrison Barnes still out, Doncic essentially has free reign in the offense (along with DSJ). The Wolves are incredibly weak on the wing without Butler, so I’m expecting Doncic to take advantage. I currently have him projected for 35.3 FD points in 32 minutes. He is, without question, a top play of the day.

Reggie Jackson

In the Pistons game against the Nets on Wednesday, Jackson played 35 minutes and was able to jack up 20 shots. That says a lot about his health right now. When healthy, Jackson has the ability to put up monster numbers in GPPs. The Bulls backcourt defense is lacking without Kris Dunn there as a stopper. I see no reason why Jackson doesn’t abuse Cam Payne and the rest of the guards. His ownership projection is shocking low for a tasty match-up. He’s a PG I have my eye on closely on both sites.

Nikola Jokic

Ok, this one isn’t exactly a deep cut. Jokic should abuse Deandre Ayton. The Nuggets have the second highest implied total of the slate. For me, it’s really that simple. I currently have Jokic projected for 48.9 FP in 35 minutes. On FanDuel, we’re projecting his ownership at 22%, but I’m coming in double that.
