Top Contrarian Play?

        • Josh: Caris Levert: Levert continues to look under represented in our ownership projections, but a look at our projections and some player props has me a bit more interested. In my data, he’s my 7th favorite play on DraftKings overall. I’ll be well above the 6% ownership we currently project.
        • Loughy: Andrew Wiggins should be relatively low owned tonight even if Jeff Teague and Shabazz Napier sit. He led the Timberwolves in touches and potential assists (15) on Wednesday, though, and was clearly much more involved as a playmaker than we’ve seen in a while — maybe ever. Minnesota owns a slate-high 121 total against what is, right now, unquestionably the league’s worst defense.
        • Emac: CLE: it looks like gamers are fired up for Bradley Beal, Troy Brown Jr and to a lesser extent Rui Hachimura and Isaiah Thomas (likely on a 24 minute limit). However where is the corresponding love for the Cavs? This is a phenomenal matchup for both Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson as the Wizards front court is not overly imposing. That duo is appropriately priced for their amazing rebounding rates, but the guards/wings have value with Jordan Clarkson, Cedi Osman and Collin Sexton. This game has the second highest total on the slate and a dozen players worthy of game stack consideration. Thomas Bryant, Larry “ugh not again” Nance and Davis Bertans would be the others in play.
        • Alex: Bruce Brown – He has been excellent as the Pistons interim starting PG with much higher usage and assists. WIth a higher price tag, coming off a bad game I think people will be off of him but I think he has a lot of potential.
