Draftkings and Fanduel Slam Dunks, Fri 2/2

Published

on

As of 4:30 pm ET, it looks like the Bucks will potentially be a huge source of value for today, with Brogdon out, and Bledsoe + Antetokounmpo questionable. Another big injury is Kyrie Irving being out, and third string PG Larkin is also out for the Celtics.

Khris Middleton (7300 DK, 7500 FD) – If Antetokounmpo and Bledsoe miss today’s game, Middleton will be a stone cold lock. Even making projections assuming each one will play half of the time, Middleton is looking like a great play. This is going to depend on what information comes out later; if one plays he will be a good play and if neither do, he will be a must play. Probability of top 5 value at position: 21.2% DK, 34.6% FD.

Terry Rozier (6600 DK, 6500 FD) – With Irving and Larkin out on Wednesday, Rozier was in line to play up to 40 minutes if the game was close. He will be popular without a doubt tonight, so it will be up to you to decide whether Wednesday’s break-out performance was lightning in a bottle or if it was legit! Probability of top 5 value: 21% DK, 41.1% FD.

John Henson (4800 DK) – With Enes Kanter and Kristaps Porzingis providing size at the center, Henson will be likely to play more minutes than average provided he stays out of foul trouble. With the depleted team, I expect him to get a few more shots in this game. Today he’s a much better play on Draftkings given the lower salary. Probability of top 5 value: 27.1% DK.

Jaylen Brown (5900 FD) – In Wednesday’s game, Brown played about 17.5 minutes, which put him in line to get up to 38 minutes if the game stayed closer. That’s the kind of minutes increase that you can’t ignore, along with the increased usage with Irving being ruled out. He’s cheaper on Fanduel, so I would be more likely to play him there. Probability of top 5 value: 33.15% FD.

Good luck!

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing support@awesemo.com.
