There are 11 NBA games on the main Wednesday January 10th slate at Draft Kings. I enjoy playing these large slates and I especially like to search for the right value plays to go along with high priced studs I’m targeting like Russell Westbrook and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The contests begin at 7:00 pm tonight so be sure to check and see if the players you have selected are actually playing tonight.
The standard lineup at Draft Kings consists of one point guard, one shooting guard, one small forward, one power forward, one center, one guard, one forward and one utility player.
With all the high priced options tonight we are going to need to find some solid value plays. For me that means players priced at $5,000 dollars or less that have the upside to return anywhere from six times value or more.
I have three such players in great spots Wednesday that I would like you to consider.
Memphis Grizzlies PG Mario Chalmers ($3800): has seen an uptick in his minutes and has exceeded six times value in both games he has played more than 25 minutes. Chalmers has another opportunity to extend his hot streak on Wednesday against a New Orleans Pelicans defense allowing point guards to average 72 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games.
Detroit Pistons PG Dwight Buycks ($3500) is making the most of his opportunity in the wake of the Reggie Jackson injury and has exceeded seven times value in three of his past five games. He’ll have another opportunity on Wednesday against a Brooklyn Nets defense allowing point guards to average 52.8 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games.
New York Knicks PG Frank Ntilikina ($4000) is starting to figure things out and has exceeded six times value in two of his past five games. Wednesday he has another great opportunity against a Chicago Bulls defense that is dead last in Fantasy points allowed to point guards over their past five games.
Good luck at Draft Kings!!
