DraftKings and FanDuel Slam Dunks, Saturday 2/10

Published

on

Since the trade deadline has passed, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of great fantasy plays over the next few days. For the moment though, I expect the top plays today to be players benefiting from injuries on their teams.

Jerian Grant (5000 DK, 5800 FD) – Since Kris Dunn has been out with a concussion, Jerian Grant has seen a larger but inconsistent role on the team. With Mirotic traded and LaVine resting for the game, I expect his streak of playing 30+ minutes to continue, for which he is underpriced. Probability of positional top 3: DK 30.3%, FD 30.85%.

Marquese Chriss (4400 DK, 5000 FD) – With Chandler out last game, Chriss and Bender started together and both played three shifts in the first half. The game ended up being a blowout but it flashed the kind of workload he could get today. Between the two, Chriss has been a more productive player per minute, but both are in play with Chandler out today. Probability of positional top 3: DK 27%, FD 25.95%.

Patrick Mills (3800 DK, 4300 FD) – Since both Dejounte Murray and Tony Parker are out today, I expect Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills to split the point guard duties for the Spurs today. Between the two, Mills has seen a bigger role on the team, so I expect him to play a majority of the minutes regardless of which one is the starter. At his bargain bin price, he is a strong play today. Probability of positional top 3: DK 26.6%, FD 26.65%.

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.
