Boom: Kevin Porter Jr.: $7,000 DraftKings/$7,200 FanDuel

32% DraftKings Boom/23% FanDuel Boom

For the rest of the season, the Rockets will be without Christian Wood (hamstring), Eric Gordon (groin) and Dennis Schroder (shoulder). With these three players absent Monday against the Spurs, Porter went off for 52.8 DraftKings points in 35.5 minutes. Including this outing, Porter is averaging 40.3 DraftKings points per game in the five starts he has made without Wood, Gordon and Schroder this season. Overall, with these three players off the court, Porter contributes 1.1 DraftKings points per minute with a 24% usage rate, in a sample size of 195 minutes. Tonight the Rockets will be hosting the Kings. This season, both these clubs rank in the bottom three in defensive efficiency and top-seven in pace. In result, this clash of lottery teams carries the third-highest total on the slate (229.5 points). Plus, this is anticipated to be one of the most competitive games of the night, with Houston only favored by three points.

In this fantasy friendly environment, another effort of over 50 fantasy points is a real possibility for Porter and he is a must-have for GPPs at very reasonable price tags on both DraftKings and FanDuel.

Boom: Damian Jones: $4,800 DraftKings/$5,100 FanDuel

23% DraftKings Boom/24% FanDuel Boom

Opposite of Porter, Jones is also an outstanding target from this projected shootout between the Rockets and Kings. Every night the Rockets are in action, we should be attacking players from opposition, especially opposing big men. In addition to ranking second to last in defensive efficiency, Houston is by far allowing the most points in the paint this season. Just this month, we have seen 11 of the 16 starting centers that have faced this putrid Rockets’ defense record a double-double.

With Domantas Sabonis (knee) sidelined for the last three games, Jones has started at center for Sacramento and supplied 24.5 DraftKings points in 27 minutes per game. With Sabonis remaining unavailable Wednesday, Jones should expose this Houston defense for at least 30 fantasy points and is a tremendous contrarian option for this nine-game slate. For both DraftKings and FanDuel, Awesemo is projecting Jones to come with minimal ownership this evening.

Boom: Nikola Jokic: $12,400 DraftKings/$11,400 FanDuel

23% DraftKings Boom/35% FanDuel Boom

With the regular season quickly coming to a close, the Nuggets are still jockeying for playoff position. It’s a very tight race in the Western Conference and Denver could absolutely move up a few spots from the No. 6 seed, making every remaining game important. Tonight they will be visiting a hopeless Pacers’ team that is decimated by injuries. This month Indiana ranks third to last in defensive rating and they are surrendering the second-most points in the paint, only trailing Houston.

As expected, Denver boasts a massive implied team total of 122.5 points in this dream spot, which is the high mark of this 11-game slate. This matchup’s total is also the largest on the board (235.5 points). Jokic has been incredible as of late, 62.1 DraftKings points per game across his last 20 starts, and he has scored over 70 DraftKings points in each of the last two games he has played behind an implied team total of at least 120 points. Jokic stands head and shoulders above all the other studs in action tonight and needs to be one your core plays.

Boom: Tyus Jones: $5,700 DraftKings/$5,800 FanDuel

26% DraftKings Boom/27% FanDuel Boom

Jones underwhelmed with only 21 DraftKings points Monday against the Warriors, but this was simply a product of his minutes being cut short in the 28-point blowout win for the Grizzlies. Prior to this, Jones had supplied 29 DraftKings points in 30 minutes per game in his first 19 starts of the season with Ja Morant (knee) inactive. Morant will remain sidelined Wednesday, keeping Jones as Memphis’ starting point guard for this perfect bounce back spot against the Spurs.

San Antonio ranks 19th in defensive efficiency and sixth in pace. Even with Morant ruled out and Jaren Jackson Jr. (thigh) questionable, Memphis has the fourth-highest implied team total of this huge slate (119.75 points), and this matchup also boasts the second-largest total on the board (234.5 points). Additionally, as they fight to hold onto the final play-in spot in the West, the Spurs are expected to keep this game competitive from start to finish, with Memphis only favored 5 points. Jones has a ceiling near 40 fantasy points in Awesemo’s NBA DFS Boom Bust Tool and is a steal at less than $6,000 on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
