DraftKings & FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Wednesday 11/7

Josh Engleman



The following picks come from’s Director of Content, Josh Engleman. Josh posts his projections daily for subscribers and is the co-host of the NBA Strategy show Monday through Friday morning.

Lonzo Ball

Ball’s minutes were a tad low in his past two games, but I’m way more interested in the price. Ball is at his lowest price on FanDuel, and just $200 above his low price on DraftKings. That price point a bit below where a person of his talent belongs. In a game with a big pace and huge total, a couple extra minutes for Ball opens him up for a huge night. His ownership projects to be super low, so it won’t take much to get above the field. I’ll certainly have my fair share.

Wendell Carter

This one surprised me. Carter is clearly a solid play on DraftKings at $6200. On the surface, I don’t really find his FanDuel price all that appealing, but he’s sitting in a bit of a deadzone between LaMarcus Aldridge and Kyle Kuzma. He’s not expected to have much ownership at all. Obviously this is a small sample, but Carter’s fantasy point per possession rate is only 2.5% lower than Aldridge. Feel free to adjust that however you see fit, but my guess is the adjustment won’t make up for the gigantic ownership gap.

Karl Anthony-Towns

Yeah, it’s happening. Towns’ per possession rates are still just too good for his price point. He dropped 60+ fantasy points on this same Lakers team on October 29, and I see no reason that it can’t happen again. There’s not really anyone set-up to handle Towns defensively, unless LeBron is feeling froggy. I’ve been rostering KAT aggressively all season and tonight isn’t changing.
