DraftKings + FanDuel Boom/Bust Projections | April 22

NBA Fantasy Picks: DraftKings + FanDuel Boom Candidates 

Jayson Tatum vs. Suns: $10,200 DraftKings/$9,500 FanDuel

12.4% DraftKings Boom/27.7% FanDuel Boom

At first glance, this matchup looks awful for the Celtics and Tatum. The Suns are one of the toughest matchups possible for DFS, but they are playing on the tail end of a back-to-back and are on the middle of a brutal road trip. Fatigue could make this matchup not as difficult for Tatum as it looks on paper. In addition, he’s getting a usage bump since Jaylen Brown is doubtful to play with a shoulder injury. When Brown is off the court, Tatum leads Boston with a 35.3% usage rate, and he scores 1.4 fantasy points per minute. Kemba Walker also sees a usage boost, which makes him a viable play.

Dejounte Murray vs. Pistons: $7,200 DraftKings/$7,200 FanDuel

14.3% DraftKings Boom/26.9% FanDuel Boom

It is the point in the season where place in the standings becomes important for production. This isn’t to say that players score more fantasy points because they try harder, but teams that need wins will play core players more minutes than normal. This is the category the Spurs fall into. They are currently 10th in the Western Conference standings and desperate for wins to have a chance to sneak into the playoffs. For this reason, guys like Murray, Derrick White and DeMar DeRozan should play a couple extra minutes per game down the stretch of the season, which should mean more fantasy output.

Andre Drummond vs. Mavericks: $7,300 DraftKings/$6,900 FanDuel

23.7% DraftKings Boom/38.2% FanDuel Boom

It is unclear what will happen to Drummond’s minutes when Anthony Davis is unrestricted, although this isn’t an issue for tonight. Drummond is playing big minutes as of late, and Davis hasn’t played in a game since early February. He is only expected to play around 15 minutes tonight. With Marc Gasol questionable to play, Drummond’s playing time appears relatively safe in a plus matchup against the Mavericks. He is averaging 29.3 minutes in the Lakers’ last two games, and Drummond remains an excellent per-minute fantasy producer, even though the luster of him and his ability to contribute to an NBA team is starting to wear off.

NBA Fantasy Picks: DraftKings + FanDuel Bust Candidates

Devonte’ Graham vs. Bulls: $6,300 DraftKings/$6,000 FanDuel

68.7% DraftKings Bust/58.4% FanDuel Bust

Not only does Graham have a high chance of busting tonight, he is fairly popular on the slate. He is projected for about double the ownership of his odds of landing in the optimal lineup. Even with both LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward out, Graham hasn’t taken much of a stride forward in terms of fantasy production. He has gone nine games in a row without scoring over 35 DraftKings points, so it’s hard to see much upside in rostering him when he’s popular and his price is fair relative to recent performances.
