DraftKings + FanDuel Boom/Bust Projections | Jan. 13
NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings + FanDuel Boom Candidates
Jarrett Allen vs. Knicks: $7,200/$6,700
32.4% DraftKings Boom/38.8% FanDuel Boom
Allen has the highest boom rating on FanDuel and DraftKings tonight. It is weird times in Brooklyn, with Kyrie Irving still with the team and a potential trade for James Harden brewing, but for now Allen is one of the most stable producers on the team. He is starting over DeAndre Jordan, who is rapidly losing minutes. Allen got over 30 minutes of run in three straight games, including 36 minutes last night. He is now cemented as the Nets’ starting center, and his playing time is on the rise.

Willie Cauley-Stein vs. Hornets: $5,000/$4,100
31.8% DraftKings Boom/31.6% FanDuel Boom
The Mavericks are getting Kristaps Porzingis back to make his season debut, but the team is still shorthanded. Due to COVID issues, Maxi Kleber, Josh Richardson, Jalen Brunson, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith are all out for tonight. When considering that Porzingis is on a minutes restriction coming off of knee surgery, Dallas is hurting in the frontcourt. Fan favorite Boban Marjanovic is a viable option and will likely play a handful of minutes, although I anticipate Cauley-Stein playing the bulk of the minutes. He has started in recent games for Dallas and produced about a fantasy point per minute.
Julius Randle vs. Nets: $9,100/$9,100
28.9% DraftKings Boom/33.9% FanDuel Boom
Randle rates as the top expensive option on FanDuel and DraftKings by the Boom/Bust tool. Largely due to the minutes that Tom Thibodeau plays his starters, Randle is one of the best fantasy producers in the league to this point. He’s playing a career-high 37.1 minutes per game and averaging 47.89 DraftKings points. We have also seen Randle play over 40 minutes in competitive games where he stays out of foul trouble. In the past I never could have imagined playing Randle at this kind of salary, but all the numbers indicate he’s a good play. On FanDuel he has a 35.4% chance of winding up in the optimal lineup.
NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings + FanDuel Bust Candidates
Jrue Holiday vs. Pistons: $7,600/$6,900
56.2% DraftKings Bust/53.5% FanDuel Bust
Picking up close to 10% ownership tonight, Holiday is once again on the bust section of this article. He is becoming a staple for me to write up as a bust in recent Bucks games. Despite failing to score 40 fantasy points in seven straight games, Holiday is yet to see a price decrease. As a result, it’s hard to envision much upside at his current salary. Between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, Holiday doesn’t have the same usage available to him that he had in New Orleans. His production is suffering, and the pricing algorithms have not adjusted yet.
